you don't understand! - well i know that water isn't good,but if you are able to swim i think you can have surf in normal way,and i have to say that chiavari is a good wawe quality spot and it breaks really often,so many people are in chiavari to have surf..and in summer the river it's not working so water it's good like the normal sea in all ligury..LOCAL AQUISITO
