I am giving kitesurfing lessons during the summer months in Sicily (Lo Stagnone Lagoon) and other spots which can be reached by car from Switzerland.
I prefer and highly recommend to do your first lessons in Sicily where are the best, easiest and safest conditions for beginners. The learning curve is much faster and you can safe your time, straggling and money. The closest airport where we can pick you up is Trapani (10 min. from the kite spot) or Palermo (1 hour by car for 50 Euro).
I will be happy to teach you also in any other spots which can be reached by car from Switzerland. The date and place would have to be discussed and decided upon the conditions.
I can teach adults and kids from 10 years up (always depends on the kid’s weight and mental maturity)
I speak english, german and czech
The season is from April till October
Lagoon Lo Stagnone offers ideal conditions for beginners thanks to the stable wind and shallow and flat water. The learning progress is much faster than in other spots
The kite center services are available for our students for free for the whole time
For the very beginners we recommend 3 – 4 days course to learn all basics and be able to ride even up wind (Always depends on students abilities)
If you had some lessons in the past we will check your level and will continue upon your abilities and wishes

What our clients say
Course w/ Iggy (Flyin’CircusKiteboarding) @ KiteSeason spot, Sicily
The spot is located by the shallow but large lagoon near Trapani (Sicily, IT) so there was no deep water what’s a great option for beginners. The spot was well equipted by latest kites, boards and everything you need for the kiting. Everybody would have a great background there. Iggy is a pro instructor with, the whole course he had smile on his face and calmly interacted in every situation. He explained everything and learning from him was easy-to-follow. I did a great progress and started to ride within the first day of the course. The second day was about riding, upwind riding and turning.
I would give more than 5 stars if i could
I had an amazing kite experience and every single day I made an improvement – not because i would be talented, but because Iggy is a great kite instructor – he was always willing to answer any questions I had and his optimism kept me going even if I felt it wouldn’t be possible. The whole course was led very professionally with an emphasis on safety and also the overall atmosphere was always relaxed and fun. I admire the patience Iggy had with me and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn kiteboarding in no time.
