I post here this reply to Inspiron mail since I hope it could be interesting to other kitevisitors of lignano:

Quote[Now some more questions about Lignano: I'm from SLovenia, and as you migh now, there are not so many kitesurfing frendly beaches in SLovenia/Croatia. Lignano is so vcery intesrting for us too, I'm two hour drive away from you :) I know you kitesurf there on an island, because it is to crowdy on the beach. How do you get to the island? I imagine, by boat, but does it ride all the time? At particular hours? Wher do I board (some location at the bach, I assume). How much do we tourists pay for the ride? ]
Yes Inspiron, since the beach of lignano is overcrowded in summer time:Image

we use to kite in a sandy island in front of Lignano from June till september.

we reach it by motorboats wich use to starts from the east point of lignanoat about 14.00 in the noon and in the morning too at sat and sun. you see a red little lighthouse you can call also the number 0431 422248.
If we have bad weather conditions and in may we use to kite at the end of the Tagliamento river wich is at the end of the west side of Lignano :

We bring our associated to the island, guests can come too but we pretend they have an insurance if they want to come with our boats , in the case they cause damage to other people wile kiting.
If you don't have your own insurance,we have an annual association insurance for 20 Euros that cover in wole world and cover also accidents beetween 2 kiters associated,
