Whoever goes windsurfing in Lignano Sabbiadoro will find everything they need: water, sun and wind.
For ardent windsurfers, Lignano Sabbiadoro can boast the ideal combination of sun, wind and water conditions, a mix that makes it a Windsurfing paradise for both beginners and experts.
Windsurfing is a water sport where you balance on a board, propelled forward by the wind blowing the sail. The skill of a windsurfer – like in sailing – lies in his ability to control the sail and adapt it to the direction of the wind. Unlike sailing, windsurfing has the added element of balance. In fact, the windsurfer must be able to stand firm on the board as she controls its direction.
Lignano Sabbiadoro, a seaside town situated in north-east Italy, is one of the perfect destinations for windsurfing enthusiasts. In fact, while there aren’t the big waves that pure surfers dream of, the presence of strong winds – like the bora and the scirocco – offer the perfect drive for windsurfing all year around.
But not just weather and sea conditions, the blue water and the soft sand make Lignano Sabbiadoro a highly popular destination for windsurfing, attracting surfers from all over the world.
