stay salty

Roberto
D'Amico

The most important thing for Roberto D’Amico is to be free.

Born, raised and living in Italy, Roby knows every corner of the coast. As a Mediterranean surfer he knows that waves don’t come so often, and it makes surfing so special for him. He would be ready to drive all along the Italian coast to find something to glide on.

Deep nature lover, you’ll often find him cleaning the local beach on a flat day, and make the most of everything the ocean has to offer.

 

STAY ON THE HUNT.

Roberto Interview

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for Surfing?

I was born in Rome, grew up in a small town in Ladispoli. Do you think that surfing was a sport? Ahahaha. I fell in love with water, when I tried my first surfboard it felt like something else to use and have fun with! I never thought it could be anything else that something fun and it’s actually still like it was.

 

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?

I would take my friends to the Mentaways for a boat trip.

 

Next destination?

Mmm... anywhere with barrels, I’ll have to check the forecast first!

“ When I tried my first surfboard it felt like something else to use and have fun with! ”
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

Organizing huge beach clean-ups and scoring around the Italian coast.

 

What are you doing during a day without waves?

I love to be in the water anyway if I can, fishing, foiling, anything that puts me in contact with the blue world!
