Apropos de nous Europa Surf and Sail sur lac de Garde


Europa Surf and Sail is a small, family run business which has been operating on Lake Garda since 1993. Now based at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine,near Navene, Charles and Alison Kinsley have extensive knowledge of the lake and its possibilities and pride themselves on introducing their clients to the best of sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, biking and SUP. They are both surfers, windsurfers, sailors and bikers for more years than they wish to admit to and they bring this knowledge to bear on every aspect of your water and land sports including the selection of state-of-the-art equipment.
