Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Few surfers would have guessed it, but Italy actually receives regular waves, sometimes as high as double overhead. Most Italians would say there are no waves in the tranquil Mediterranean because their beach experience is mainly associated with summer when wave height is usually tiny and crowd size is huge. But once all the tourists have gone home, winter approaches on the heels of low pressure weather systems, which have crossed the Iberian Peninsula from the Atlantic or formed up in the western Med. Tuned-in surfers then track the storm, hoping for strong onshore winds to blow hard and long enough to bring swell to the Italian coastline. The Lazio coast receives these swells from a full 180° window, anytime from autumn through winter to spring, with the closest spots sitting a mere 30min from Rome.
