The kitesurfing spot of Lo Stagnone in Sicily: one of the best in Europe A
about Lo Stagnone Kite spot
Spot Lo Stagnone is our base point. It's located in Birgi village, between the cities of Trapani and Marsala.
We anchored on the picturesque north-western tip of Sicily. It is a region inhabited for centuries, famous for salt production, fantastic wine, unbelievable sunsets and wild nature.
This means that on free, windless days there are plenty ideas for spending time and places worth visiting.
Fortunately, there are not too many windless days and this is the main and most important feature of the spot.
Wind conditions are perfect for training - almost every day we have a constant, termic wind with the speed of 10 to 30 knots.
We ride and teach in a bay closed to the west by Santa Maria Island. As a result, the water is warm, flat, and the wind direction is practically constant.
The depth of the bay doesn’t exceed 1 - 1.5 meters (we can walk all the way to the island by feet).
Shallow water is perfect for beginners and intermediate kitesurfers, because they can walk back from any point of the bay (we don’t need motorboats assurance).
The advanced ones will appreciate the perfect flat appearing at some points.
In Sicily the ideal wind conditions go hand in hand with beautiful, sunny weather (cream with a high filter on the nose is a must).
Lo stagnone spot is full with kitesurfing school bases, thanks to which it teems with life from spring to autumn.
Our base is at the very center of this life.
Our kitesurfing school has a complete infrastructure:
There is a beachbar with fantastic drinks, where after an active day we gather for aperitivo at sunset.
There is a toilet with a changing room, which is not easy in these areas.
There is a chill zone - deckchairs, swings, wi-fi.
There is a beachboy, a compressor and grass under kites, we have a wide, comfortable access to the water.
There is also a parking and a charming deck next to the spot.
