Kitesurfing in Marsala / Lo Stagnone on Sicily in Italy

One of the biggest flat water lagoons in Europe. The lagoon offers flat water, knee to waist deep throughout, this is Lo Stagnone from Marsala! There are two different wind systems, both suitable for kiting –  and one of them is always on!
At the north eastern end of the lagoon you’ll find the town of Santa Maria and the kite area. At this point, both wind directions are kiteable. A complete kitesurf infrastructure, consisting of a wide green area for setting up the equipment, launch and landing area, showers, storage and a restaurant. Everything is covered with the Kitepass, which is included in all KiteWorldWide packages.

Due to the shallow lagoon, you’ll always have perfect flat water. Only in the very middle of the lagoon, the conditions might get slightly choppy.

The lagoon is HUGE, so you can be sure to always find enough space for practicing your first meters on the board or new freestyle moves.

There’s a special case about Sicily. Wearing a helmet & impact vest is compulsory at the lagoon of Lo Stagnone since 2019. In addition, children are only allowed to take part in kite courses from the age of 14, which was also enforced by the Italian Coast Guard in 2019.
