The Wind at the Stagnone Kitespot

The wind comes mainly from three directions: North, Northwest or South.
The north wind can be very strong, but usually blows at 12 to 18 knots. The morning north wind is reinforced in summer afternoons by the thermals, which guarantee good conditions for kitesurfing from 12.00 to 18.00 hours. For kites, a size of 7 to 12 square meters are usually sufficient.

On days when there is little wind, there is always enough wind of 9/13 knots due to the thermal, and you can kitesurf with kites from 13 to 16 square meters. Be assured that you can kite every day.
