More water sports on Lake Como

In my last post I wrote a bit about kiteboarding, which requires a strong wind to keep the athlete on top of the water. When the wind is not quite strong enough for that, the kiteboarders take a break and the windsurfers take over.

Kiteboarders dry their kites and wait for more wind

Meanwhile, on the other side of the lake, the windsurfing school is teaching new surfers the ropes.

And the advanced surfers show their stuff.

Then it is time for a windsurfing break.

Time to dry off and spend a moment with the family (dog).

Time for a selfie while the light is just right.

 One more go at it while there is still some wind.

 Time to pack up and go home.


  1. Lake Como looks like an amazing place for water sports. It's now near the top of my list of places to visit, hopefully I will be there next year.

    1. Yes, the people I talked to there said they had an app that told them how strong the wind was on the various lakes in central Europe so that they knew where to go. Have fun!
