Tuesday was an Epic day .. I’ve been waiting for it since last year
No Limits project in collaboration with Sector:
Traveling alone on Lake Garda from North to South with my WingFoil, a feat that no one, except with boats, has faced until now.
To ensure the success of this challenge a powerful wind was needed .. and this morning a 30 Knts “Peler” blew.
I wanted to start from the northernmost point of the lake, at the mouth of the Sarca river !!
6.40 am I was in the water: let’s go!
I started to descend along the right side of Trentino to the border with Lombardy. When I got close to Limone del Garda I felt the wind accelerate and my Wing 4.5 fill with wind.
I felt like I was flying light, just me, the wind and my friend Lake Garda! Only the gusts, the sound of the waves accompanied me, and I started talking to them …
I was having fun like never before … I could surf all the waves that seemed to come close to me to say hello. In short, I arrived in my home spot, MALCESINE where I greeted some friends and went on darting like never before .. Nobody knew what I was doing …
I continued to go from one coast to the other of the lake, from town to town, surfing between a Kite and Windsurf, riding waves and carried by the beautiful wind ..
A dream that I had long imagined was finally coming true … I sang the songs I just listened to in the car that charged me up.
How nice to have the possibility and the freedom to sail without a sail, only carried by the push of the wave and the wind .. I wish everyone to be able to experience such a spectacular emotion.
When I arrived in Toscolano Maderno I found very large and long waves, the legend told by the locals spoke of a “dry” that generates a big wave .. here it is in front of me !! I would have stayed there for hours… but my goal was to reach the southern part of the lake .. Desenzano del Garda.
I left Toscano behind and headed straight for Sirmione. This part of the route was the most difficult because I was not used to navigating without the vertical walls of the mountains that border the shore, very important references. I was alone in the middle of nowhere and the shores were very far away, here I do not hide that I felt a bit of anxiety, but immediately afterwards I said to myself:
“There is abundant wind, I’m on my Foil, the Vela is perfect, go by Ricky just look at the Target, Desenzano is now close” … Down Down between one wave and the next.
When I approach Desenzano Centro I find a crowd of people who applaud me and take pictures… an immense joy!
Fantastic!!! I was super happy, proud to have kept the promise made to Sector, satisfied to have made it alone, without help, without support, only with my Forces.
