I’m Italian, I live in front of the sea in a small town in Tuscany near Viareggio. I have been doing this sport since i was 5/6 years old and in my family there is a passion for surfing, but in general for the sea. In 2019 I become under-16 Italian Champion and I paretecipated in the ISA World Championships in California with the Italian National Team, one of the most exciting experience of my life. Today I surf the European Tour Junior and Open QS organized by WSL, it is a chance to compare myself with older athletes. That give me a lot of experience, and a great motivation to improve and grow.
