WEATHER & WEBCAM
The temperature in spring and autumn is around 20 Celsius therefore the season starts in March and goes until November. These conditions are quite similar to Tarifa, the biggest kitesurfing destination in the World. Sicily has a big advantage though: it is not so crowded yet, so even beginners can feel safe while practicing. Lo Stagnone offers a unique kite spot with flat, shallow water and thermic winds. These are the ingredients of the perfect kitesurfing destination. With these conditions it is easy to say that kitesurfing in Sicily is like kitesurfing in paradise. Not only the most comfortable, but shallow waters are also the safest places to learn kitesurfing. We don’t need a rescue boat around here, you can stand up easily even in the deepest parts of the lagoon .
The thermic winds start in June and last until September. This is the most reliable season and the best conditions for kitesurfing. There is a constant 15-20 knots of wind every day and you don’t even need a wetsuite. This kind of wind generally starts to blow around 2 p.m. and goes down with the sunset. The thermic winds are very consistant, not as gusty as in a lot of places.
There is another great news about this spot in Sicily: the location of the lagoon is just 10 minutes drive from the Trapani-Birgi Airport. There are several airlines coming to Sicily 3-4 times a week so you can book your ticket any time. Other opportunities are the Falcone-Borsellino Airport in Palermo, which is 1,5 hours away, or the one in Catania, which is a bit further it’s about 3 hours drive from Marsala
