Why do you love SUP? 

When I'm paddling alone, in the middle of the sea ,I can feel a fantastic connection between myself and the nature surrounding me.

How did you start Stand up paddling? 

...Just for fun... A day at the beach I saw a man (Paolo Marconi) paddling on the board. I was immediatly attracted to this sport. I decided to try and i became addicted to it. After I decided to test myself at a local race, I fell immediately in love. The sensations I feel during a competition are truly unique.

Your heroes? 

My coach Federico Esposito that believed in me from the beginning and who is also my landmark. My  other heroes are Bruno Hasulyo and Mo Freitas.

Best drink after an SUP training Session? 

Orange juice, a cold beer after a race.
