VIDEO: Ritratti Di Surf | Alessandro Ponzanelli & Matt Calvani (Part 1)

November 10, 2012


“One dances on his surfboard like the best Californians but was born and raised in Tuscany, on the Versilia shores. The other took over an iconic surf brand of the 60s and successfully brought it into the 21st century.
The Onde Nostre team is proud to present Alessandro Ponzanelli – arguably one of the best italian longboarders – and Matt Calvani owner and shaper of Bing Surfboards – and to relate the story of their encounter.
Here’s part one.

RITRATTI DI SURF is a series of short videos about surfers, shapers, artists and other characters somehow connected to Onde Nostre and the italian surf culture.”
