The coast of Santa Marinella and in particular Punta Banzai is one of the places most appreciated by wave surfers for the quality of the waves that are created. It is one of the few places near Rome where surfers from all over Europe meet and national and international competitions are held.
A surf school was started in 2002 and Italy Surf Expo takes place in Santa Severa, an international event thanks to which Italy hosted a stage of the World Challenger Series of Stand Up Paddle.
For those who love details: Punta Banzai is located at km 56.300 of the coastal road. The reef runs right and left with small and large swells from SE, SW, W and NW directions even with a strong sea wind.
