Kitesurf Sicily

Kitesurfing in La Stagnone is as easy as possible for beginners and also for advanced skiers. Imagine being able to practice your tricks or ride upwind without worrying about your board. If you lose it, you can get up, walk back and grab it. If your level is average and you can’t yet stay upwind, you can easily walk upwind every time you feel like you’re getting too far from where you started. This way you can practice a lot more without wasting time.

This is the perfect package if you have no experience with kitesurfing and want to learn this beautiful sport. Kitesurfing is not a sport that you can just learn in 1 afternoon. That’s why our trips are perfect! You are at a perfect destination with ideal conditions for a week with people who also want to learn as much as possible. Hey ho, let’s go! 🙂

Designed for beginners

This Level 1 – Beginner package is the ideal start to your kitesurfing career. We will help you get started and ensure that you can get on the water independently as a real kiter under good conditions, safely, and with great pleasure. A complete kite training in 1 week from Zero to Hero!

 

9 hours of lessons from our team. After the 9 hours you can practice independently with other kiters from your level for the rest of the week with our kite material. A complete package including kite lessons, (shared) equipment rental, supervision, and coaching for 6 days!

What to expect from this course?

After this week you can go on the water independently with your kite set. To ensure that you make optimal progress, we teach with 1 instructor on a maximum of 2 students. You share a kite set together for the entire week so that you can help each other and learn together. Kitesurfing can be quite intensive, especially in the beginning. It is nice to be on the water together. You will get lessons from our certified instructors! Real kite professionals who have been active in kite industry for over 10 years!

What do you learn

In 9 hours with 2 beginners / 1 instructor / 1 kiteset

Building up your kite and knowledge about kitematerials
Learn how to rig the kite, learn all about your material, bar extensions, line lengths, different systems, kite types, etc.
Safe starting and landing
Perhaps the most important thing during your course. Learn to take off/land independently and safely on the beach.
Safety systems, self rescue
Various safety systems are explained, emergency situations are discussed and a step-by-step plan is drawn up so that you can save yourself and get to safety at any time.
Theory & rules
What about priority rules? What about the weather? With what wind force do you use which size kite? What should you take into account? Enough to discuss during our joint theory
Kite control
You cannot practice this enough, 80% of kitesurfing is kite control and a lot of attention is paid to this during the course
Upwind bodydragging / board rescue
What happens if you lose your board? Then you can safely reach your board or the shore by upwind body dragging. It is also good training to be able to fly your kite with one hand.
Spot analysis
Every kite spot is different, every forecast is different. We teach you what to pay attention to if you want to go kiting yourself.
Kite relaunch
It is easy to relaunch your kite in strong winds, but can you also manage with less wind?
Waterstart
If everything else goes well, we have finally arrived at the water start! We're trying to get you on the board.
Independend practise
Towards the end of the course, a lot of attention is paid to independence. We sometimes let you practice yourself (together with the other student) so that you can help each other and practice independently.
Turns & Upwind kiting
Is everything going well? Of course, we will occasionally visit you after the course and provide supervision. We also give you tips and tricks when we see that you have arrived at a bend or altitude walk!

FAQ

What happens after the 9 hour course?
You will practice as much as possible independently, together with another kiter. The wind often blows all day at our destinations, so there is plenty of time for everyone to spend hours on the water. Our team will supervise you during your practise and give you tips where needed.
What happens if I have or want private lessons?
If it happens that the grouplesson doesn't suit you in terms of your level, you may receive private lessons. If you take private lessons, you will complete the course a little faster, but it is also a little more intensive. Our rule is that 7 hours of private lessons are equal to the nominal 9 hours of shared lessons.
Do you really want private lessons? Please let us know in advance so that we can see what is possible.
What happens if I learn it much faster than the other participant?
We may then reassign you to someone of the same level. Depending on the group, we can also decide that you get your own kite. This may incur additional costs.
Am I Insured?
Do you listen to your instructor's instructions during our kite lesson? And does a kite break during the lesson? Then you are insured against this. Are you not listening to our instructor? For example, the instructor tells you to stay in a certain area and you keep moving on because you (quite understandably) like it so much? Then you are not insured if you break a kite. We recommend that you check your travel insurance carefully to see whether it also covers extreme sports. to avoid disappointment and hassle on holiday. We work together with Sportzeker and then you are always covered for everything!

FAQ

Is kitegear included in this package?
No, you need to bring your own kitegear or rent a complete set at € 399 / week
What happens if my level doen't match with this course
One person picks it up faster than the other and that is really no problem at all. If we see that you need extra lessons after the 9 hours, our instructor will take you aside and discuss with you how many hours he thinks you still need. Depending on whether other people in the group need extra lessons, the extra costs are: €60/hour for private lessons and €35/hour for shared lessons. You can also decide to exchange your rental for the rest of the week for 3 hours of extra lessons so that it does not cost you anything extra that week.

Just got back from a week in Tarifa with the KiteActive gang - what a brilliant week, we had wind pretty much every day, stayed in the excellent Wild House hostel, lovely group of humans ("my beautifuuul people!" as Henny would say) and Hilke and Cher were amazing group hosts!

I joined KiteActive on the TV TAS 2022 downwinder. For me it was a long lasting dream to kite along the wadden islands and the trip really was a mindblowing experience. Now a week later, I still feel stoked!KiteActive managed to organise the trip in a safe way by having a large team of pro-kiters on the water who were able to perform rescues in case of any emergency, a RIB with an experienced crew who looked after us during the crossings and safeTRX watches which could be used to alert the coast guard.The downwinder lasted only 2 days, but it felt like a complete holiday. Kiting in between groups of hunderds of seals, while having a full rainbow on the background in the direction we were sailing, just sketching one of the pictures in my mind which will never fade away. Flat water spots, nice waves to play in, 4m swell during crossings, a nice combination of all sort of conditions. A trip of a lifetime.A big thanks for the KiteActive team, looking forward to the 2023 edition!

In 21 years of kiting this was by far my best Kite Experience ever. Riding out the TVTAS-downwinder was a huge challenge which I was Able to complete thanks to the Kiteactive team. Always making sure of our safety in very challenging conditions. 4m High Waves and very Strong currents were but of a few conditionaliteit to mention. But Above all their carefull planning and Knowledge of the North Sea and currents made for a safe yet exhilarating kiteadventure. A true challenge for kiteboard-experts only.Thanx Kiteactive-team. I had an awesome time.

Last weekend I did with Kite active the most ultimate downwinder of the Netherlands, which is TV TAS. With this downwinder you pass by all 5 wadden Islands, which are Texel, Vlieland Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermoniksoog. The downwinder was actually even longer, because we started from the mainland of the Netherlands, at Den Helder instead from Texel. Even though it's a 2 days kitesurf trip, it's been the best kitesurf trip for me so far. The thrill of passing all the wadden islands which is world heritage UNESCO, is a undescribable experience. The trip itself was very good organised bij the people from Kite active. They are very experienced kitesurfers, and they know the area very well. They are very friendly, give good briefings, and this not only at the start, but also at several other locations where necessary. Alse the hotel on Terschelling was very nice. The boat trip back, and the bus back to Den Helder was perfect organised.Be aware to be an experienced kitesurfer. Don't under estimate it, it's great if you're an advanced kitesurfer with enough experience to kite in big waves on sea. Despite the advanced level of all kiters in the group, we had to wear a Safetrx whatch for our safety. Which really made this trip possible and safe.

FAQs

How far is the accommodation from the kite spot

The kite spot is on your doorstep!

Where is the best place to rent a car or scooter?

We have good contacts with local scooter and car rental companies and you can book through us without any problems. Of course there are several car rentals from Palermo airport where you can also rent a car for €10-30 / day. A good website that we recommend for finding the cheapest car is Carjet.

What is the wind like and what material should I take with me?

On average the wind blows between 14 and 25 knots. So take all the kite sizes you have with you! Furthermore, a large board or a foil can sometimes come in handy in the mornings and a wave board is also recommended because there is also a beautiful wave spot!

How is the group?

Our groups can vary from young to old, and are often evenly distributed with both men and women. The group usually consists of ages between 20 and 45, with exceptions of course. We teach beginners and give tips to advanced kitesurfers, so you can expect every level from us. We also often offer group activities that you can participate in without obligation. On some trips you may share a large room with other KiteActive guests, but this will be indicated. You can often see in advance via our Facebook Events which people will be present on the trip.

How do I fly

You fly into Preveza airport. There are several airlines that fly here, but Transavia is a particular favorite.

How long is the flight? And from Airport to the Kitevilla?

It is about a 2,5 hour flight and from Amsterdam to Trapani or Palermo. From Trapani it is a 15 minute drive, and from Palermo 2 hour drive to the hotel

How is the nightlife?

Great, you shouldn't compare it with Ibiza, but there is a great club in the capital and there are endless beach bars that organize great theme parties. So don't forget your trendy outfit 🙂

I can't during this period

Shame!! Unfortunately, we only offer this event during this period. Fortunately, we have many other cool ones outside this period kitesurfing events and keep our Facebook Stay tuned to stay informed when new dates for Italy come online.
