Huge flatwater lagoon spots as well as up to 300 days of wind per year is what we love about this country! With Sicily we found one of the best Italian spots. A truly huge lagoon with flat and shallow water throughout offers the perfect conditions to learn kitesurfing. The short distance to the African continent is responsible for the warm and pleasant temperatures from March until November 🙂 Marsala has one of the biggest flat water lagoons in Europe. The lagoon offers flat water, knee and waist high throughout. 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 Bergi Vecchi and our kite area. At this point, both wind directions are kite able. A complete kitesurf infrastructure, consisting of an area for setting up the equipment, launch and landing area, showers, storage and a restaurant. Everything is covered within our packages. For your gear, as it’s Europe, we advice you to bring all! Wind can vary on average from 12 till 20 knots and picks up during the day. Our crew is mainly using a 9m, but it’s useful to bring from 7 till 12m depending on your length, technique and bodyweight. Average air temperature : 30c Average water temperature : 25c Average amount of days with more than 3hrs in July > 4bft : 25days You can be sure to always find enough space for practicing your first meters on the board or new (freestyle) moves. Wave rider? Ocean is just around the corner!

Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands, separated from the Continent by the Strait of Messina and surrounded by the Ionian, the Tyrrhenian and the Mediterranean Seas. It is one of the pearls of Southern Italy and can be discovered, understood and experienced through a series of itineraries dedicated to areas of interest ranging from nature to history and traditions. Nature seems to have endowed all its wonders to this land: mountains, hills and above all the sea, with its incredible colors, its crystal-clear water, huge lagoons and the beauty of its seabeds. Here, the Mediterranean Sea, with its many little islands scattered around the coasts of Sicily – The Aeolians, Egadi and Pelagie Islands, Pantelleria and Ustica – offers unique and the intense sceneries, scents and flavors of uncontaminated nature. Last but not least, its great volcanoes are symbols of the irresistible beauty and vitality of this incredibly charming region. Fascination for this region grows with treasured archaeological sites that tell the story of the ancient origins of Trinacria (ancient name for Sicily), lovely food, wonderful wines…. and therefore we suggest to at least take one day of from kitesurfing to discover the island.
Buongiorno Sicilia! Welcome to our NEW european summer-base of 2017; Beautiful landscapes around, Italian food all over, staying at nice spacious apartments close to a winery and the spot, around 30 sunny degrees on your head, friendly local people … but especially super lovely kite conditions for every level. For beginners to freestylers there is a big shallow flat water lagoon right at our doorstep, perfect for our intens coaching pack included! Welcome to Marsala Sicily, the most beautiful lagoon Italy has to offer, which we would like to discover it with you this summer.
The area around Lo Stagnone Marsala is already a famous destination to go kitesurfing, the thermal winds take care of a high number of wind days, even during the summer months. Birgi Vecchi, where we will be staying, is ready to become a populair kitesurf destination as well and we aren’t totally alone over here, but for now we still got plenty of space on the lagoon and strange enough, so far it never became crowded at our place as our school has their own entrance at the lagoon, a few km from the main spot, exactly the reason why we go here before the others discover it!
This trip has it all, next to the perfect kite destination and the wind that comes in almost every afternoon, our apartments are in the middle of the winery and our kiteschool is a good hang out on the beach during the daytime. For more shopping, sightseeing, bars and restaurants, we can offer trips to you to the most beautiful places around, like San Vito Lo capo and Favignana. Next to our yoga fit lessons in the morning, we will make a day trip, do a downwinder, organize delicious food, chill at sunsets and we have a storage full of (board) toys like we always do! Think of SUP boards, skateboards, directionals and so on…
As an extra addition to this trip we offer an intensive coaching program with two of our crew members included for free. Wanna make that improvement? Join us! Of course the Girlzactive crew will be around for the support we always give you, but trust us, the coaching makes you do that extra mile. 🙂
Next to loads of kitesurfing, lovely surroundings and a good accommodation, breakfast, lunch and diner are included at Italy. We created a wonderful package, with everything included, so you don’t have to think about anything more than your boardshort, kite gear or which bikini you will wear! Just relax from the moment you leave the plane and we will bring you to our nice summer 2017 hangout.
