During summer, many bathing establishments organize lessons under the supervision of windsurf trainers and provide special equipments to allow both beginners and tourists to enjoy this exciting sport. As they familiarize with this sport, they learn special techniques and get to know the required equipment. The way of sailing varies according to the weight and sizes of the sailboard.

Kite surfing
Born on the Hawaiian beaches, kite surfing has only recently landed along the Adriatic Coast and has already won over a wide range of enthusiasts. Kite surfing is carried out by replacing the traditional windsurf sail with a wide kite provided with 2 or 4 cables. Beyond providing a more powerful drawing, the kite draws athlets vertically allowing them to make spectacular acrobatics. In almost every sailing school along the Adriatic Coast it is possible to attend kite surfing courses and to hire the required equipment. One of the most appreciated kite surf centres along the Riviera is the Marano Sailing Club situated between Miramare and Riccione.

Canoeing, Kayak
Excursions by canoe or kayak are particulary recommended near the salt-pans of Cervia and along the quiet canals of the Park of the Po Delta. The Canoe Kayak Club in Cervia organizes courses and rent the required equipment and allows to make excursions around the salt-pans or along the beautiful itineraries situated inside the Natural Park.
Even sea canoeists are increasing and different centres situated both along the coast and on the beaches were founded to rent the required equipment. Canoeing requires physical strenght but the Adriatic sea is a calm sea and makes it possible to leave the crowded beaches and enjoy peace and tranquillity in the offing.
