“To come to a place like this and find good wind, mirror-flat water and nobody around is very rare, and I have been travelling for many years now!" - Aaron Hadlow, Duotone team rider and five time World Champion

 

“The sheer size of Lo Stagnone is staggering. There’s so much empty space and the water is incredibly flat in places that it feels like you’re kiting across a mirror!” - Matt Pearce, Patagonia Team

The Lure

Easily the biggest expanse of truly kite-able flat water in Europe – Lo Stagnone is an eight square mile lagoon in the north of Sicily that can be ridden in either of the two northerly and southerly prevailing wind directions. No tides, no dangers. A number of pro freestyle riders have made films there and if you tuck in behind the island in the middle of the lagoon or close to the ‘salina’ salt plain walls then you can slice your way through perhaps the glassiest water you’ll ever ride!
