So Cal student studying in Florence but looking for surf« on: July 19 2006 16:07:00 »
Originally from Newport Beach California, I'm going to be studying abroad in Florence from September '06 to May '07. I want to start my research now on where to plan some surfing expeditions either in Italy or elsewhere and meet some locals so I can become fluent...any and all ideas/recommendations are appreciated.

I studied there from sep 00' to july 01'. There isn't going to be a whole lot in the mediteranean except during the months of oct, nov, dec. The surf that you are going to find will typically be close range storm surf so be aware of developing weather patterns. Check out a spot called Levanto. There are also several other little breaks around the Italian Riviera. If you have a chance take a boat to Sardegna and check out Putzu Idu. Access is limited and its not tourist season so do your research.

Hi, I am studying abroad in Italy this summer (may/june). I am arriving in Milan a few days before i have to check in in Rome. I am looking for a good beginner long boarding spot preferably close to Rome. I'm originally from northern California (i went to college in Santa Cruz for awhile) but I haven't surfed in a few years. Any info you have would be great!
