In 1972, the Urraco, which had experienced several initial slowdowns, was finally put into production

flat water paradise for every level

Marsala, a great spot on the island of Sicily with high wind certainty. The wonderful weather makes this a popular destination among water sports enthusiasts. The kite spot is located all the way in the west and is a huge flat water lagoon! Do you also like waves? Fortunately, there are also various wave spots and other top destinations nearby!

Get to know the mistral and sirocco

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and it is the southernmost part of Italy. Thanks to its location, the weather is warm and the kitesurfing season is very long in La Stagnone, Marsala.
The temperature in spring and autumn is around 20 degrees Celsius, which is why the season starts in March and runs until November. These conditions are quite similar to Tarifa, the largest kitesurfing destination in the world. However, Sicily has a big advantage: it is not yet that crowded, so even beginners can feel safe while practicing. Lo Stagnone offers a unique kite spot with flat, shallow water and thermal wind. These are the ingredients of the

Sicily

Kitesurfing in La Stagnone is as easy as possible for beginners and also for advanced skiers. Imagine being able to practice your tricks or ride upwind without worrying about your board. If you lose it, you can get up, walk back and grab it. If your level is average and you can’t yet stay upwind, you can easily walk uphill every time you feel like you’re getting too far from where you started. This way you can practice a lot more without wasting time walking on the beach.

LOCAL ECONOMIC SNAPSHOT

Despite the fact that Sicily has been a popular destination among tourists for years, the prices are fortunately still not too bad!

  • Beer €1,50
  • Pizza €7
  • Dinner between €10 -25
  • Lunch around €10

Just got back from a week in Tarifa with the KiteActive gang - what a brilliant week, we had wind pretty much every day, stayed in the excellent Wild House hostel, lovely group of humans ("my beautifuuul people!" as Henny would say) and Hilke and Cher were amazing group hosts!

I joined KiteActive on the TV TAS 2022 downwinder. For me it was a long lasting dream to kite along the wadden islands and the trip really was a mindblowing experience. Now a week later, I still feel stoked!KiteActive managed to organise the trip in a safe way by having a large team of pro-kiters on the water who were able to perform rescues in case of any emergency, a RIB with an experienced crew who looked after us during the crossings and safeTRX watches which could be used to alert the coast guard.The downwinder lasted only 2 days, but it felt like a complete holiday. Kiting in between groups of hunderds of seals, while having a full rainbow on the background in the direction we were sailing, just sketching one of the pictures in my mind which will never fade away. Flat water spots, nice waves to play in, 4m swell during crossings, a nice combination of all sort of conditions. A trip of a lifetime.A big thanks for the KiteActive team, looking forward to the 2023 edition!

In 21 years of kiting this was by far my best Kite Experience ever. Riding out the TVTAS-downwinder was a huge challenge which I was Able to complete thanks to the Kiteactive team. Always making sure of our safety in very challenging conditions. 4m High Waves and very Strong currents were but of a few conditionaliteit to mention. But Above all their carefull planning and Knowledge of the North Sea and currents made for a safe yet exhilarating kiteadventure. A true challenge for kiteboard-experts only.Thanx Kiteactive-team. I had an awesome time.

Last weekend I did with Kite active the most ultimate downwinder of the Netherlands, which is TV TAS. With this downwinder you pass by all 5 wadden Islands, which are Texel, Vlieland Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermoniksoog. The downwinder was actually even longer, because we started from the mainland of the Netherlands, at Den Helder instead from Texel. Even though it's a 2 days kitesurf trip, it's been the best kitesurf trip for me so far. The thrill of passing all the wadden islands which is world heritage UNESCO, is a undescribable experience. The trip itself was very good organised bij the people from Kite active. They are very experienced kitesurfers, and they know the area very well. They are very friendly, give good briefings, and this not only at the start, but also at several other locations where necessary. Alse the hotel on Terschelling was very nice. The boat trip back, and the bus back to Den Helder was perfect organised.Be aware to be an experienced kitesurfer. Don't under estimate it, it's great if you're an advanced kitesurfer with enough experience to kite in big waves on sea. Despite the advanced level of all kiters in the group, we had to wear a Safetrx whatch for our safety. Which really made this trip possible and safe.

FAQs

How far is the accommodation from the kite spot

The kite spot is on your doorstep!

Where is the best place to rent a car or scooter?

We have good contacts with local scooter and car rental companies and you can book through us without any problems. Of course there are several car rentals from Palermo airport where you can also rent a car for €10-30 / day. A good website that we recommend for finding the cheapest car is Carjet.

What is the wind like and what material should I take with me?

On average the wind blows between 14 and 25 knots. So take all the kite sizes you have with you! Furthermore, a large board or a foil can sometimes come in handy in the mornings and a wave board is also recommended because there is also a beautiful wave spot!

How is the group?

Our groups can vary from young to old, and are often evenly distributed with both men and women. The group usually consists of ages between 20 and 45, with exceptions of course. We teach beginners and give tips to advanced kitesurfers, so you can expect every level from us. We also often offer group activities that you can participate in without obligation. On some trips you may share a large room with other KiteActive guests, but this will be indicated. You can often see in advance via our Facebook Events which people will be present on the trip.

How do I fly

You fly into Preveza airport. There are several airlines that fly here, but Transavia is a particular favorite.

How long is the flight? And from Airport to the Kitevilla?

It is about a 2,5 hour flight and from Preveza it is a 15 minute drive to the hotel

How is the nightlife?

Great, you shouldn't compare it with Ibiza, but there is a great club in the capital and there are endless beach bars that organize great theme parties. So don't forget your trendy outfit 🙂

I can't during this period

Shame!! Unfortunately, we only offer this event during this period. Fortunately, we have many other cool ones outside this period kitesurfing events and keep our Facebook Stay tuned to stay informed when new dates for Italy come online.
