ALL PRACTICAL INFORMATION FOR YOUR KITESURFING TRIP IN SICILY
3 STEPS HOW TO PLAN YOUR SICILIAN KITESURFING TIME WITH US
1. CHOOSE A DATE AND CHECK YOUR FLIGHTS
The first step to plan your kitesurfing trip in Sicily is to check what flight match the best your dates. We’re here all the season, so the date of your stay can be totally dependent on your free days, flight prices, wind conditions or anything else.
As for flights – there are airports in palermo and trapani very close to us (trapani airport is 6 km from us and from palermo airport it’s an hour drive to us)
we strongly reccommend checking ryanair connections to trapani and palermo at the first place. Web pages as skyscanner are also very useful. Also we recommand yu to rent a car, this is the most convenient way to visit the region.
2. CHOOSE AN ACCOMMODATION
You can look for accommodation on your own or make use of our insight.
We can suggest you a few spots knowing the date, number of people and your expectations as to the distance from the spot (if you’re not planing to rent a car, we will propose you locations from those just above the water, up to 500 meters from the place where we lounch our kites. If you plan to have a car we, can open up to 3 km from the spot).
When proposing specific places, we give the price per night and we send photos.
3. LET US KNOW!

WHATSAPP: +39 333 809 2544
We like to put the ones coming to us into into our colorful calendar, so the information we need is the date and number of people willing to attend the course or willing to rent.
You don’t need to specify how many hours you would like to spend in the water. It turns out on the spot, depending on the wind, strength and willingness.
That is why we have this policy – you pay as much as you’ve done, no need to buy a full course in advance.
The course price list includes 6, 9 and 12 hour courses and it’s a reference point when we set the final price.
At this point we also deal with the accommodation issue (on your own or with our help) and the transfer from and to the airport, if needed.
PRACTICAL INFORMATION FOR A KITESURFING TRIP IN SICILY AT LO STAGNONE
Western sicily has a lot to offer, really. While the sun doesn’t play tricks, it happens to the wind sporadically. On a sunny windless day it’s good to take a look around, and we’ll be happy to suggest where to look.
For the nearby escapades you can go by bike (we have a few in your fleet, there are also a lot of rentals on the spot). If you plan to explore more seriously, so properly (!), consider renting a car for the time of your stay, or part of it.
We have summarized our own escapades in our guidebook to sicily (which you can downloaded in pdf and print for yourself).
SHOPS & RESTAURANTS
Finding a poor restaurant in sicily is close to impossible. Starting from the spot – there are several beach bars serving breakfasts, lunches and dinners at good prices.
There are also quite many restaurants in a biking distance.
At a distance of 14 km from the spot there is the city of marsala, and 23 km away there is trapani – both full of restaurants and shops.
We do groceries in birgi (this is where our spot is). There are also some supermarkets in the area.
– Like in italy. It lasts more less from 13 to 16:30 and most places are closed at that time (besides of our spot, of course).
We have 3/2 mm wetsuits with short sleeves and long legs. They are useful only in early spring and late fall.
Wetsuit boots are not necessary – there are no stones at the bottom.
What is necessary are flip-flops for running around the spot.
We advise the ladies, especially those who have delicate skin, to take leggings / yoga pants – because of the occasional mean water plants. We surely have wetsuits, but on most of the days it will be too warm for them.
If you’re going to ride with sunglasses, better invest in the cheapest possible, or buy a good rubber for holding them, preferably floating and bright. Non-fastened glasses disappear irretrievably at the first tipover. They always do.
For those who would like to go to erice (worth seeing!), we suggest taking warmer clothes (sweater, summer jacket). It can be chilly and windy there, especially in the evenings.
In addition to the above, a waterproof cream with a filter is a must. Lo stagnone is like in an oven.
