What was one of the best moments on your wakeboard?

Of course when I won the World Championships in Argentina has been amazing, but I would say I love that feeling I have every time I land a new trick. When I don’t ride, I feel like a shit.

What lessons has wakeboarding taught you?

My 1st serious injury while riding teached me a lot: after that life’s been hard and even harder during the rehabilitation. Now I am more motivated.

What does it mean to ride for LF?

I’ve been in love with LF since when I started riding the boat when I was 7, and I hope to go on for all my life. LF shapes are the best, the best bindings, and being part of the same team with riders i like  like Felix and Dan, is a dream.

Who or what inspires you?

My Daddy’s been my inspiration since always. He lives on a wheelchair but he uses to ride his adapted wake everywhere we go: more the obstacles are creative and more is fun for him!

What do you think you are doing too much of or too little of because of wakeboarding?

You know I’m very often around the world traveling because of competitions, and I love it because I can visit amazing places like for ex. San Francisco, Bali or Shangai. What I miss is my hometown friends. And for sure It’s really hard to be an athlete and at the same time to be a student!!!

When all the guys from the team came to Italy for the shoo! We had super long days, but lot of fun and I had the chance to know everyone from the team better! It really felt like being in a big family!

Why should people support LF or ride LF product?

People should support and ride LF cause it just has the best products. Both boards and bindings are the best I’ve ever ridden. I could really ride every board LF does cause they're just too good! And the bindings are the most comfy for sure!

Why wakeboarding and what brought you here?

I wakeboard cause I love it! It's the thing that makes me happier! I really enjoy every minute on the water and also off, Its basically all my life now, I have all my friends here, I travel around the world for it!

What are the top 3 wake parks around the world?

Frst place is Thai Wake Park, for sure! Is the park where I ride the most! The set up is crazy and they always change everything! And its like being always on Holiday! Warm weather, chill vibes.. its really the best place.

Then, Turin Wake Park.. which is my 'homecable' (even if its 5 hours from my actual home). Is the best park in Italy for sure, the features are insane and it's really like a second home for me!

And, then ill say 313! I love how the believe in wakeboarding and how they push the sport. This park is just perfect! There's everything you need and everybody is so kind!

You have unlimited budget for a wake trip, where is it, who is with you and what does it look like?

Since I've been traveling around Europe a lot, I'd say a roadtrip in USA! Especially Georgia, Florida, Texas and California! I'd go with my Italian crew, and id love to go in every single park they have!

Best wake memory of the last year?

My best memory from last year is when I saw all my friend again after 2 years in Lithuania, for the competition. With COVID it was almost impossible to travel, so for almost 2 years we haven't been able too see each other. Riding, partying, and spending time with everyone was just too good!

Any upcoming projects you are hyped on?

I've been filming a lot in Thailand this winter, so I can't wait to finally release my final edit!

What do you like to do outside of Wakeboarding?

Outside of wakeboarding, I don't do much.. hahaha. I really love to travel, discover new places, adventures.. every time I'm on a wakeboard trip I try to stay couple of days more to visit places.. and I love to surf as well, unfortunately I'm not so good haha, but I still enjoy it soooo much! Then I train so muuuuch! Gym or at home, even if I'd prefer wakeboarding, I know I need it, so ill just do it!

Favorite isle in the grocery store?

The one with fruits, cause I could eat fruits all day long ahaha or the one with shampoos and creams, cause I just love their perfumes, I'd buy them all ahaha!

Dream job?

My dream job is to have in the future my own cable park. Building it the way I want, with all the features I like the most aahahha!!

Do you play a musical instrument?

Nope, but I wish I could!

If you could be a pro in another sport what would it be?

I think or surfing or skateboarding. Anyway always a board under my feet!

First thing you do when you wake up?

Check my phone, and then straight breakky!

Biggest accomplishment in life?

My biggest accomplishment till now is being able to live my life while wakeboarding! It has always been my dream since I started! Cause its the thing that makes me feel better!

Biggest Goal in life?

My biggest goal in life is being happy and healthy with the people I loved and try to do always what makes me feel good!

Country you want to visit the most?

I'd love to visit South America more Mexico, Brasil, Argentina, and then some island, like the Hawaii, Bahamas and the Caribbean.
