414 Kiting

Chris has been in touch to promote what 414 Kiting are doing for this coming season. After a very successful season last summer running kitesurfing courses from April through to September on Lake Como in Northern Italy, 414 Kiting will be open again at the end of this month on 25th April. The ‘Breva’ thermal wind has already started to kick in and with 10% off all lessons in May it is time to start planning your Kiting trip this summer.

Whether a complete beginner looking to get your first taste of this exciting sport, a freshly hooked kiter looking to improve on existing skills or an advanced rider wanting to hone that latest trick, IKO-affiliated 414 Kiting and Lake Como offers the perfect safe environment and friendly approach to achieve this and more. Chris and Ben are both IKO level 2 qualified instructors with extensive experience teaching on Lake Como, who will ensure progression at whatever pace suits you.

At 414 Kiting we are delighted to continue our excellent relationship with F-One kites and we will again have a full range of brand new high quality kites for this season. We have the much sought after Bandit Dos and the beginner friendly Revolt for those in the know to get excited about! As well as our two comfortable 5m RIB’s for teaching from out on the on the lake we will also be adding a jet ski to our teaching fleet this year and have more high quality wetsuits, harnesses and all the safety equipment required.

We are also delighted to have Katherine with us full time this summer, who as well as bringing an extra pair of hands to the kitesurfing courses will also be using them to work her magic as a qualified Sports Masseuse for those for whom an exhilarating day out on the lake needs to be offset with a therapeutic massage or as a more sedate alternative for non-kiting group members. Katherine will also be running the 414 apartments and bringing that much needed feminine touch. The apartments are perfectly located right opposite the school, 200 metres from the lake, and offer ideal kiting accommodation for couples, families or combined for larger groups.

With a range of Easyjet, Ryanair and BA flights into Milan’s three airports, Bergamo, Malpensa and Linate and an easy drive of less than 90 minutes from any of these it couldn’t be easier to get to us at Gera Lario on the truly stunning Lake Como. There are also train and other public transport links and ferries will take you wherever you need to go on the lake. Remember it is not all about the kiting; the Lake Como is a destination in its own right with a plethora of other things to do and see in between or instead of kiting and of course some fantastic Italian food and wine to distract you!
