Varazze (Italy’s north coast) is one of the few places in the world, if not the only one, where you can really surf at night. With powerful 8000W floodlights positioned right on the jetty in front of the main peak, you can extends your session in the water after the sunset, when often you’ll find the best waves. The sea stretches, crowding decreases and the wind turns from the ground shaping the perfect waves that made famous the main peak of Varazze worldwide. During a nice winter swell, Roberto D’Amico has been waiting for the headlights to light up to extend its session after sunset until late at night, at first sharing the line up with a few other surfers until he left completely alone in the water and free to surf the best waves of the day … or night.
Indonesia got really crowded in the last few years, Roberto D’Amico proving that there are still some empty waves around the Islands. The short has been filmed in Sumbawa, Sumatra, Lombok and Bali Featuring his team mate Mikala Jones and friend Mattia Morri.
We wanted to go to somewhere different. We were looking for new and fresh, more barrels and less people. But where to find such a thing?
Over four minutes and thirty-one seconds, you’ll see Roberto D’Amico surfing around Indonesia, as well as short features of Dutch surfer Yannick De Jager. The Indo flu is easy to catch – and once you’ve got it, you can’t stop going back.
This is a short excerpt from the last surf trip to Indonesia. Robertino, thanks to his faithful companion armed with compact camera, he takes home a nice little clip. Enjoy the video.
