[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It must be pretty tough being a surfer from Italy. For most of the year, the surf is flat, cold and there are limited spots to choose from. But one of the best spots to surf in Italy is a reef break place called Banzai, just 60 minutes drive from Rome.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXZsoZG_kkc"][vc_single_image image="7200" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]Banzai is home to one of Italy’s most stylish surfers named Tommaso Geraci. He’ll be out there when its pumping and when its not, he’ll be practicing on his SmoothStar. Due to a lack of consistent swell from the Mediterranean Sea, Tommaso uses SmoothStar to simulate and strengthen his surfing skills.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7230" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]The similarities in his surfing are unbelievable, both on his back hand and forehand.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7236" img_size="full"][vc_single_image image="7224" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]So when the swell does arrive at his local break, he enjoy more of what he loves, feeling the energy of the ocean and the energy that it gives him, just Tomasso, his surfboard and the ocean. Simplicity.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7212" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]Tommaso has been riding SmoothStar for over 2 years now. He is a qualified surf coach and provides coaching on land with students that want to improve their surfing from beginner to intermediate. Its a rewarding job because he makes people happy.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7206" img_size="full"][vc_message message_box_style="solid" message_box_color="blue" icon_type="monosocial" icon_monosocial="vc-mono vc-mono-googletalk"]
“you have to think about being constantly on a wave, surf more time than you can on your SmoothStar when you are not in the water and you will feel the results”
