you CAN snowboard in sicily. check mout etna (a vulcano) which has go lifts and stuff and other high mountains on the island. they go over 2000 meter above sea level. there are other small resorts (in the hinterland of cefalu / north) as well.

best surf is autumn and spring (as usual). i've never seen a surf shop though.

If you would like to go surfing in Sicily, send an e-mail to we represent a handful of American surfers from the area and we have Sicily wired.

Swell windows are short and usually windy, 3 hrs travel max around the island, many wonderful hotels at moderate pricing, great food and an all around interesting surf trip.

We are always willing to bring others with us on trips around the island and have access to several loaner boards, but bring your own if you can.

Aloha, Ike Kanakanui
