Jerrie van de Kop, RRD pro rider and King of the Air competitor

THE LURE

In Crotone you'll find awesome food, accessible conditions and Mediterranean weather. If you bring your 7, 9 and 12 metre kites you’ll be set up for the majority of days and the wide expanse of open water makes it an ideal location for nailing down your foiling technique until the wind fills in properly in the afternoon (it's foil-able most days).

The Set-up

Situated on the Ionian coast, Club Velico Crotone Sport Beach sits eight kilometres north of the city of Crotone. This region gets wind from the north / northeast and south / southeast and both directions work well at Crotone. You can get steady winds pushing up to as much as 30 knots during the winter season and 25 knots in the summer months from May to October. June to September are the best months of the year when the water is warmest and the local thermic effects increase the wind strength so that’s the best time to come if you’re planning on learning to kite in Crotone.

There’s also a flatwater lagoon a few kilometres to the north which is ideal for freestyle as well and there are wave spots on this coastline but you’ll need to drive to them (the guys at Crotone can give you some pointers there).

Crotone is also a popular spot on the Italian racing circuit and GKA Kite-Surf World Tour rider Tony Ciliberto, head coach at Club Velico Crotone, also coaches the Italian Youth Twintip Racing team from Crotone.

WIND, WEATHER AND WATER

Crotone is in the southernmost part of Italy so the temperatures are ideal! In summer, the air temperature ranges from 27-33°C / 80 - 91°F and can drop down to below 10°C / 50°F in winter. You can ride in boardshorts or a bikini in summer when the water hovers around 17°C / 63°F and a light suit in spring but you’ll need a full length autumn suit in the dead of winter when it can drop down to 10°C / 50°F. In summer bring a hoodie for windy evenings and in winter you need a jacket and jeans.

SCHOOLS

VELICO CROTONE SPORT BEACH'S kite school is directly on the spot and GKA Kite-Surf World Tour rider Tony Cili is the head coach. They’re open from June to September with instruction available in Italian, English and Spanish and they have a full fleet of RRD gear and also offer sailing and windsurfing instruction as well as pilates lessons. Customers of Velico Crotone Sport Beach get preferential rates at a number of local hotels too!

Accommodation

There are numerous B&Bs and hotels in the city centre and some options closer to the beach as well. If you're hiring gear or learning with Club Velico Crotone then you can get preferential rates at a number of local hotels too!

NO WIND

There’s volleyball at the beach, a chill-out area for sunbathing, and plenty of non-wind activities such as SUP, exploring the marine reserve in Isola Capo Rizzuto or hiking in the nearby Sila Mountains. You can also go dinghy sailing in a light breeze and the sleepy pace of life around this coastal region is ideal if you’re looking for a relaxing break.

GET AROUND

Zelda minish cap. The area offers many sights and activities in the surrounding area, so a hire car is obviously with having if you don't want to rely on taxis or beach shuttles.
