How did you start surfing?
I started surfing thanks to a family friend, Cristian Pantaloncino, on my town beach in San Felice Circeo (Italy). Christian pushed me in my first waves when I was 12 years old and I inmediately loved it! The next week I spent all my savings to buy me my first board. From that moment on I jumped in the water whenever there was a little wave.
What would you like to pass on to our students?
To my students I want to transmit my passion for surfing and the love and respect for the nature, because I think that this makes us better persons and it makes surfing like dancing with the natural forces.
Why learn to surf in Fuerteventura?
There is no place better than Fuerteventura to learn surfing because here are always waves for all levels. The island has 3 different coastal directions, so you always find a perfect spot where you can enjoy a good session, no matter what weather conditions there are. And on top of that we have a fantastic warm climate all year round!
