Kitesurf School and Courses in Stagnone of Marsala, Sicily

ACK: Ariel Corniel Kiteboarding

Our kitesurfing school is located in the heart of the Stagnone of Marsala is one of the best places in the world to practice kitesurfing. The stagnone is a shallow lagoon located on the west coast of Sicily that offers ideal conditions for the sport. It is possible to reach us with a flight on the airport of Trapani (tps) served by Ryanair and other low-cost airlines, from which we are less than 5 minutes' drive away or from the airport of Palermo (Pmo) from which we are about an hour's drive away.
The ACK Kitesurfing School at Stagnone di Marsala is a reference point for Kitesurfing Courses: The Sea Baptism dedicated to those who want to have a one-day experience, The basic kitesurfing course lasting 6 hours for those who want to learn Kitesurfing from scratch, and the Intermediate and Advanced Kitesurfing Courses for those who want to deepen and progress their technique in kitesurfing.

Wind conditions at Stagnone are particularly favorable, with steady, regular winds blowing from the northwest throughout most of the year. This means that it is possible to kitesurf at any time of the year, even during the winter months.

The lagoon is large enough to provide enough space for all levels of kitesurfers, from beginners to professionals. In addition, the water is flat and shallow, making the Stagnone an ideal place to learn and perfect basic kitesurfing techniques.
There are no age limits to learn kitesurfing, and no physical condition is needed (no strength is needed), plus learning kitesurfing at our school is easier than elsewhere because with the shallow waters you will always touch the bottom and it will be very easy if you fall into the water to get back up and get back on the kiteboard.
