Francesco Di Tommaso just sent this photo to me. Near Bari, It gets colder there in the winter than here in Southern Cal. It looks like a fun wave, but Francesco is riding his older 9-0 G&S 2+1 instead of one of his more cherished boards. I guess the wave breaks into a shallow rock reef that likes to eat boards. He also sent photos of his G&S taken after this session. I believe him. Taken January 9th, 2010.
