Prokite Alby Rondina – Sicily

Perfectly placed in the middle of the Mediterranean, Sicily's steady annual wind, warm air and sea temperatures have lured kiters here for years. Not to mention the beautiful landscape, rich cuisine and architectural heritage. The resort of Lo Stagnone is positioned on the shores of a large, sandy and shallow flat-water lagoon, part of a very picturesque nature reserve. It’s ideal for learners and advanced riders too, with a multitude of little islands on the farther reaches of the lagoon, and plenty of scope for exploring the salt pans and salina walls.  

Prokite Alby Rondina is the main kite school in La Stagnone which is situated halfway between the cities of Marsala and Trapani (the latter having the closest airport). Enjoy this spot all year round due to the reliable wind conditions that blow across the 12 km long lagoon. Find a beginner friendly launching and landing area, right next to the school. In Between sessions, recharge in the welcoming shade and grab a bite to eat at the Peahi BeachClub.Sunset sessions here are the best; kite into the evening while listening to the band playing ashore.

My Way – Portugal

Portugal is legendary for the Atlantic surf that hits the Western shores. The strong winds and glamour sunshine equals kitesurf heaven, if this isn’t on your bucket list, then it should be. This diverse, beautiful landscape allows you to ride in harmony with nature and experience conditions to suit whatever your mood. Outdoor lovers will appreciate the historic and cultural elements of the local town and close community.

This super versatile spot offers endless sandy beaches and powerful Atlantic waves, while across the promontory lies one of Europe's largest flatwater lagoons stretching to 75km and the strong tidal current makes for even more variety. Carve your route downwind, through a flamboyance of flamingos in the summer and even dolphins if you’re lucky. MyWay attracts people from all over the world and ensures the best quality and safety. Several experienced guides are on hand and motorboats lead guests through the labyrinth of waterways and large open spaces.

MyWay’s base is located directly at the water of the lagoon, within a beautiful park and small harbour with amenities such as tennis, football and basketball courts as well as a CrossFit parkour and open-air gym.
