The surf on the west coast if Italy is dependant on the Mistral winds blowing from the western quarter whipping up a rideable swell. These winds have sufficient fetch to create a decent sized swell to crash into Italy, though they are usually short lived affairs. There are normally rideabale waves for a hundred or so days per year but the largest pertcentage of these days are small mushy windswell days. However, when the bigger cleaner days do manifest themselves there are plenty of beaches and reefs to accommodate a good quality wave and that is the reason the west coast of italy has a healthy surfing population that is growing annually.
