The Oriented Natural Reserve of Stagnone in western Sicily is located halfway between Marsala and Trapani; It presents extraordinary naturalistic scenarios such as the salt ponds still active for the salt collection, suggestive windmills, biodiversity of flora and fauna, fields cultivated with native vines, pink flamingos and herons that fly over and park in the lagoon.
It extends for over 20 sq km, opening onto the sea in two points: the "mouth" north towards San Teodoro and the "mouth" south towards C / da Spagnola (near the city of Marsala).
The waters of the lagoon are shallow, generally characterized by a flat surface and, together with the favorable weather conditions of the place, with mild temperatures and constant winds during all seasons, make it an ideal location both for those who want to learn and practice Kitesurfing and for kiters already experienced in freestyle.
The Mistral wind from the north (N, NE, NO) is the prevailing wind that blows over the Stagnone with an average of 15-25 knots from early spring to late autumn. There are also days of Scirocco or Libeccio with intensity that can exceed 40 knots! In addition to these two opposing wind systems, at Stagnone it is also possible to benefit from thermal winds, generated by the contrast between the overheating of the low waters and the surrounding open sea temperature.
The Lagoon of the "Stagnone" (term coined by the Local), has thus become, one of the most famous locations in Italy and in the world for Kitesurfing and a spot sought after by many national and international kiters that in addition to taking advantage of about 300 days. of wind a year, they will have the good fortune to navigate, glide or perform their stunts inside this large Nature Reserve, closed and protected between the four islands of Mozia, Isola Grande or Lunga, Schola and Santa Maria and enjoying in the background spectacular sunsets over the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo Marettimo)
