Kite surfing

The experience

With its jumps and acrobatics, kite surfing is one of the most impressive and exciting water sports to do in Lignano Sabbiadoro!

Kite surfing is a relatively recent water sport, invented in the late 1990s in the windswept waters of Hawaii, and later exported even to the beaches of the upper Adriatic, like the 8 km-long strand in Lignano where kite surfing has become a must-do all year round.

Kite surfing requires special equipment: a board and a kite controlled using a bar.

In Lignano Sabbiadoro, Kite surfing is quickly gaining popularity and there are qualified schools where you can learn the sport with courses for adults and children.

During winter (from October to May), you can kite surf freely right along the length of Lignano Sabbiadoro beach, while in summer it is forbidden near the beach but is possible at the nearby, uninhabited Conchiglie island.

Conchiglie Island is situated just a few hundred metres from the Santa Monica boardwalk (better known for its picturesque Faro Rosso) and offers the beach with the strongest wind in all of Lignano Sabbiadoro, lifting all the Kite Boarders high in the sky.

From April/May to October, aspiring kiters are taken by qualified instructors in a dinghy as far as Conchiglie Island where – taking basic kite surfing courses – they can learn and improve their kite surfing techniques in total freedom and safety.

Conchiglie Island, with its golden sand and shallow waters, is the ideal spot for kite surfing lessons and practise. The sea wind will take you back what is a clear sandy beach perfect for onland exercises and equipment assembly.

Sport

Wakeboarding

The experience

An intense and dynamic sport: even those trying it for the first time will exalt jumping and doing tricks in the water while wakeboarding!

Wakeboarding became popular in the US in the late 80s, and basically combines water skiing with snowboarding. Just like parasailing and stand up paddling, it rapidly spread to Italy and has become one of the staple water sports that can be enjoyed on the beaches of Lignano.

Wakeboarding involves holding onto a sling bar and standing on a board similar a snowboard. The wakeboarder is pulled by a motorboat and uses the boat's wake to do jumps and spectacular tricks.

Although it may seem like a challenging sport when you watch it, everyone can actually wakeboard. There are no age limits: the thrill of gliding on the waves is an experience that everyone should try! Moreover, it's so easy to learn that you can heartily enjoy wakeboarding on your first attempt, as it is easy to quickly improve and become practical with the board and sling bar.

Some beach centres organise wakeboarding in Lignano Sabbiadoro, see which ones on the map below.

Sport

Stand up paddle (SUP)

The experience

SUP is halfway between surfing and canoeing. A simple water sport that anyone can do.

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) is a version of surfing where you stand on a board (a long board) and move along using a paddle. This sport has really grown in popularity in recent years all over the world.

Stand Up Paddle began in Polynesia and is very popular in Hawaii. However you don’t need to travel so far away to do it! SUP is also very popular in Lignano Sabbiadoro, with lots of schools along the seashore offering equipment hire, lessons and outings, plus other related events.

Stand Up Paddle is a cross between surfing and canoeing. From the former it takes the characteristic of, standing on a board,  gliding on the water and being able to ride a wave, with all of the techniques and fun of “surfing”. From the latter it borrows the use of the paddle, with all of the techniques and advantages that propulsion system.

SUP is very popular among surfers, windsurfers and kiters, who instead of waiting on the beach for the ideal conditions to practice their sport, like to ride the waves even on days when the wind is down. 

But the strong point of SUP is that anyone can do it, not just athletes and water sports “pros”, at any age and without any special training or requirements.

For those who get restless on the beach, SUP is an excellent alternative precisely because it is easy for everyone no matter what your physical condition, and it is excellent training for your muscles and for balance.

The really incredible thing about this sport is that you can do it on any body of water. Lignano Sabbiadoro, with the Adriatic Sea, the Marano Lagoon, the river Tagliamento and the river Stella, is an ideal spot. Stand up paddle means you can discover (or rediscover) nature’s treasures in a sustainable way and from a whole new perspective: from the sea, from the lagoon or from the river, standing on a board with a paddle in your hand, surrounded only by the lapping water, the breeze and the sound of birds singing.

Windsurfing

The experience

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.

Going windsurfing in Lignano Sabbiadoro is very easy and accessible to all thanks to the many schools and associations that provide equipment and offer lessons with qualified instructors.

From May to September, windsurfing schools in Lignano are open right on the beach at Sabbiadoro and Pineta with equipment hire (not just for windsurfing but also for sailing, SUP and kayaking), the latest sails and boards, and expert personnel available to give lessons to whoever  wants to take their first steps in this water sport.
