Good friend Marco Mazzini has just given me the heads up that another Fish Fry inspired surfing festival is planned this year at VERSILIA ( NW TUSCANY) ITALY. They have a great location right on the beach at Pietrasanta which is just 30km north of Pisa. I was there last June. The local Govt have given them a prime spot right amongst the beachside resorts and sports clubs where they have built a club house meeting place for local and visiting surfers to meet and hang out. Last Saturday they kicked off their season with a great shaping clinic from Chris Christenson , as a Pre-FEST happening. Marco said " It was great! You should like his live shape of a 5.4 ocean racer (simmons meets twin keel)." They have a very passionate local surf culture and wait for wind swell big enough to chase waves near the local pier. If you are traveling and are near Tuscany this time of year , you will have a great time in a beautiful part of the world.
