Leo Fioravanti’s Roman Holiday
Fins-free in the Tyrrhenian Sea!
This morning these shots arrived in our inbox, from across the pond this afternoon: Leo Fioravanti going fins-free while enjoying his Roman Holiday. With Leo just back from the North Shore, spending time at home wth family and friends—just last night toasting one of Italy’s finest, Roby D’Amico, on his birthday—a low pressure coming across the Mediterranean sent a proper little windswell into the Tyrrhenian Sea.
“These were taken today near Rome, at my home spot where I grew up,” Leo told Stab. “Ironically, it’s called Banzai, haha. Tomorrow is going to be small, so I’m gonna go to the snow. But there’s going to be really fun waves for the whole week. Monday is going to be kind of solid!”
