I started windsurfing in 2008 in Egypt, and since that day my life has changed.

My home place is not one of the windiest place in Italy, so I didn’t have many chances to go windsurfing during the winter due to school and to the lack of wind.

That’s how I arrived at the decision to move to Sardinia to finish my high school studies when I was 16.

In 2012 I took part at the first windsurfing competition in Marseille, France, on the occasion of the Eropean Juniors Tour.

I competed in the Juniors Tour for the next two years and joined the European Tour in the overall category for the first time in 2014.

I had been dreaming of becoming a professional windsurfer since I’m a kid and in 2016 my dream came true.

I’m now a professional windsurfer competing in the World and European Tour.
