Bestwind was born in 1988 when the family business which started in 1958 selling natutical equipment and motor boats, shifts to the son Roberto, and the business starts moving toward wind sports. Sailing and windsurfing become the main departments and the name is changed from Nautica Benamati to BestWind. Bestwind is in the right place at the right time, since in those years, windsurfing goes through a historical boom and Lake Garda becomes known all over the World as one of the best places to plactice wind sports. Sailing also becomes very importat inside the store thanks to the victories of Roberto all over the World, and starts getting bigger and bigger.
At BestWind you will find a passionate and expert staff, made of people who go out in the water anytime they can. Thanks to the competence of the champion Roberto Benamati and the son Michele (Miko), the stores are known all over the World for their wide choice of quality products.
