Are you ready to fly?
Come and try the WASZP!
We eagerly await your arrival to experience the emotions of flying over the water with the technological marvel of a foiling WASZP. You will find the WASZP test centre at Malcesine on Lake Garda, Italy Malcesine sul Lago di Garda, part of EUROPA SURF AND SAIL.
European WASZP Test Centre
The test centre began in 2016 thanks to the agreement with WASZP International, the company producing the one-design WASZP. Together we want to promote the creation of a foiling One Design class accessible to all and affordable by all.
At the test centre we can demonstrate and train the first generation of One Design foiling sailors. Here, WASZPs are available to try with the assistance and supervision of experienced foiling sailors, maintained and tuned to the latest specifications.
Foiling and flying above the water is a remarkable sensation but not yet known to everyone. With the advent of the European Test Centre, those interested can test their skills thanks to a boat designed specifically for sailors who wants to try their hand at foiling for the first time.
Boats, parts and accessories
The WASZP is a One Design boat born of the intuition and experience of Andrew McDougall, co-creator of the Moth. Designed and built in Australia and available world-wide, the WASZP is affordable, accessible, fun and already wildly popular.
The European WASZP Centre will provide boats, parts, training, support and information for the growing fleet of WASZPs (600+ already).
Many sailing enthusiasts have decided to buy a WASZP to start flying on water, as an alternative to the much more expensive MOTH and to join a fun fleet of enthusiasts from all over Europa and the rest of the world.
Experience, help and network
Visitors to the European WASZP Centre will find like-minded sailors and instructors who can introduce them to this wonderful, new watersport.
Our WASZP test sail is structured to ensure maximum safety for sailors who want to try the boat.
Lasting one hour, with the assistance of a support boat and personal instructor, you will sail for the whole time.
We will prepare, rig and launch the WASZP, as well as trimming the boat in the water in order to facilitate as much as possible customer's first 'flight'.
The price of the test includes the wetsuit, shoes, buoyancy aid and helmet (required for all sailors).Read more
