Description of Cartella Lagoon (Acquatina) (Italy)

This artificial lagoon is an amazing flat water spot when the Northwind (tramontana) blows. The lagoon is facing directly the sea and you can also have a wave session just crossing a tiny stripe of beach sand. The spot is quite safe even though some good wind days can get a bit crowded. But the lagoon is big enough to offer space to several riders.
