Since 1976, the STICKL brand has stood for qualified water sports courses on Lake Garda! Windsurfing and kitesurfing, sailing and catsailing and since 2016 also foiling on boats, catamarans, surfboards and kiteboards! Professional trainers, perfect organisation and top equipment at the best spot of Lake Garda are the guarantors of success!


Lake Garda is the “Mekka” of all water sports enthusiasts!

Mild and mediterranean climate, stunning scenery, delicious food and the uniquely reliable wind conditions contribute to the fact that the lake is one of the most popular destinations for sports holidays.

In 1976, Heinz Stickl, former European champion in sailing and surfing world champion started the first surf school in Italy in the Bay of Val di Sogno south of Malcesine as a pioneer of the surfing scene. Due to its sheltered position, the bay is the ideal starting point for all courses, such as surf beginners as well as sailors and catamaran sailors.

Out of the surf school of the early years the Stickl Sports Camp emerged. Today it is the largest surf and sailing school on Lake Garda, the largest VDWS Hobie Cat Center of Europe and since 2001 the first kite surfing school at Lake Garda.

Versatile sports and fun

Through the cooperation with Club Hotel Olivi and the location of the sport camp, the Stickl watersports program is bundled with activities such as tennis, heated pool, fitness room, sauna, kids club, playground, beach volley and several bars and restaurants.
