Kitesurfing Sicily: Lo Stagnone/Marsala
Since 2010 our kite school has been growing to become one of the best kite spots in Europe, where there is 70% wind and only shallow water. The family atmosphere and personal care have always been our top priorities. Our motto is “safety first” and we are proud that hundreds of satisfied students have already received their kite license from us. You can rent or buy equipment from us and our accommodation is close to the spot. No matter what you need, we will be happy to help you make your stay unforgettable.
Why kitesurfing in Sicily – Lo Stagnone?
Lo Stagnone in Sicily is not without reason one of the most popular kite spots in Europe. In summer the wind probability is around 80% and even in autumn and spring the wind yield is still good. The lagoon itself is of course perfect for kiting: warm, big and flat. You can find something like that in Europe only here!
But kitesurfing in Sicily is not only tempting because of that. Cheap and fast flights bring you almost directly to the kitespot. A unique island with unprecedented history inspires on windless days. And the food here is a highlight even for Italians. Convince yourself!
You are welcome to rent any kite equipment from us at fair prices. Kite rental means accompanied kiting with us. We are happy to help you choose the right equipment for kitesurfing in Sicily and always have an eye on you if you need help. You can change the size of your kite and board at any time for free. We are also happy to help you set up and double check the equipment before you go out on the water.
Would you like to buy your own material? Just contact us! We will be happy to advise you and you can try out our kite material yourself. We sell both brand new kite material and used material in good condition. Since you can test everything on the water in advance, you are on the safe side with us!

Our dream spot Lo Stagnone – Sicily
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.
Fastest way – From You to Lo Stagnone, Sicily
The way from you to Lo Stagnone/ Sicily is more than easy:
- Flight from Europe: Mostly around 3 hours
- Landing at Palermo (Punta Raisi) or Birgi airport
- From Birgi: Only 10 minutes to the spot
- From Palermo: Only one hour to the spot
- As soon as you land, we will be happy to pick you up.
- 25 € from Birgi

- Alternative: Rental car (approx. 15 €/day) or bus (goes directly through)
You can hardly reach a kitesurfing dream spot faster and cheaper. When you arrive, we will drive you either to your accommodation or directly to the beach, if the time fits. Then you can go kitesurfing directly. If you arrive with your own car, just let us know and we will tell you exactly where to go. We regulate everything personally and uncomplicated via whatsapp.
Our recommendation is clearly the rental car. Then you are independent and can explore the beautiful island of Sicily.
Many evenings and events together in Sicily
For windless days there are other nice activities besides kitesurfing: For example a boat trip to Favignana, Erice, Segesta, Marsala old town – or go climbing. By the way, we also offer gourmet trips in Sicily and give our kite clients a charming discount here.
We often spend evenings together after the kite session at Torre Loopa. A classic is of course the relaxed barbecue at sunset in a cozy atmosphere. If the evening can be a bit longer, we also like to go together to the beach bar and dance by campfire and moonlight.
And these are just a few examples of the many leisure activities. Since we live here, we of course have some especially nice secret spots that we like to share with our guests. Because Sicily is also unique and exciting from a historical point of view. This ranges from ancient Greek temples in Agrigento to shot-up street signs in Corleone, where shady henchmen were up to their mischief not so long ago.
So there’s a lot more to Sicily than just kitesurfing. You can definitely look forward to an adventurous trip full of valuable experiences – and we are looking forward to seeing you!
Our philosophy – your speed
The group size of our kite courses depends on the wishes of our students. We do 2-3 kite lessons per day, if the strength and desire is there, we are happy to do more. Training is generally done with a radio, so that contact is always established. Kitesurfing Sicily according to German quality standards! The basic course is usually spread over 3 days. You would like to have an extra private lesson? No problem! We are super flexible. All kiteboarding lessons can be customized according to your needs and schedule.
Torre Loopa – certified kite school in Sicily with official IKO basic course.
We strongly believe in personalized attention. At our kitesurfing school the most important thing is that at the end of the course you will be able to kitesurf autonomously. So that it is not dangerous for yourself or the other kiters – safety-first and quality before quantity are our mottos. It is also important to us that each of our students is familiar with all problem situations in the water and can react quickly. Only in this way is kitesurfing in Sicily guaranteed to be safe.
We often have children signing up for kitesurfing lessons. Official rules are: From 10 years and 50 kilos. For children we recommend to take a windsurfing course first. If you already have some water experience, next year comes kiting!
I am looking forward to see you!
