For sensation seekers: surfing and kitesurfing

Whether you are beginners or already experts, the power of the sea in Livorno is the gateway to a world of high-adrenaline water thrills! In fact, not everyone knows that Livorno is home to a thriving community of surfers who, when the wind allows, gather around the Tre Ponti beach, just a stone’s throw from the city center, to ride the waves crashing onto the coast or for a peaceful paddle on a sup board. An experience that will make you feel more alive than ever!

The wind and the seabed formation in this stretch of coast offer ideal conditions not only for surfing but also for kitesurfing. Allowing yourself to be lifted by the large kite sail, admiring Livorno from above and then gliding back down, zooming between the waves, will offer you a whirlwind of sensations not to be missed.

Are you beginners or lacking equipment? Don’t worry. At the surf centers in the area, you will find professional instructors and well-equipped rentals ready to provide you with all the support you need to master and enjoy these exciting disciplines.
