Stagnone Kite Corner lo spot

The spot

The Lagoon

Stagnone is a lagoon located at the western end of Sicily, between the cities of Trapani and Marsala.
This spot is popular throughout Europe as one of the main destinations for all kitesurf lovers.
Kitesurfing at the Stagnone is always practicable because the lagoon enjoys over 300 days of wind a year.
In summer, it mainly exploits a north wind that increases in intensity every afternoon thanks to the thermal wind.
Throughout the rest of the year, winds from Maestrale, Scirocco and Ponente alternate.
The reserve of the Stagnone, extends for over 20 square kilometers and is connected to the sea through the mouth of San Teodoro to the north and Contrada Spagnola to the south. There are some islands scattered in the lagoons which, based on the wind direction and thanks to the Venturi effect, channel the air and increase the intensity of the wind.
