If the traditional aquatic sports are not enough for you and you need more adrenaline, the Alps of the Sea have a lot to offer!

All the ideal natural elements are there to practice these sports: the sea, the wind, the climate - which is favorable for so many months a year - and the many spots suitable for lovers of these activities.

Specifically, the wind,blows at over 12 knots with a certain frequency and there is no need to wait for the mistral to practice.

The ideal season is from October to April, when the highest and most beautiful waves are formed, sought by the most experienced surfers. However, the Alps of the Sea offer great opportunities for beginners as well throughout the year.
