In the kite lagoon Lo Stagnone you can stand for miles. Kitesurfing in Sicily is optimal for beginners. If you make a mistake, you just stand up and walk calmly out of the water. That’s why you can rent equipment already after the kite course and practice by yourself. We always take care of our kiters when they come to the rental center – safety-first!
We are often asked if our center doesn’t get too crowded during the high season. The answer is clearly no. Our landing area is very large and we do not take more guests than 25 at a time. Our kitesurfing area is as big as it is safe, as there are no objects in the water. Kitesurfing in Sicily means for us kitesurfing under the best conditions.
The two most common wind directions are the Mistral from the northwest and the Scirocco from the south. Both directions mean sideshore for our spot, i.e. neither onshore nor offshore wind – the perfect condition for learning. In addition, thermals play a big role for us, as the lagoon heats up quickly. The wind forces are therefore often stronger than announced – and due to the warm water temperature you can easily kite in shorts.
Our kite school in Lo Stagnone is located in the middle of a nature reserve. Therefore the school has a family atmosphere. Despite this, the school is equipped with parking, chill-out area, landing area, bar and toilet. The Kitelagune is also recommended for advanced kiters. If you practice certain tricks, you don’t have to wait for lifeboat or similar. In waist-deep water, you simply stand up and can continue.
