Edoardo started surfing at the age of 11, thanks to a friend, on a summer day: ''It was love at first wave, literally''. From the moment he felt the power of the waves, he decided he wanted to chase that feeling forever. Edoardo is a student of Philosophy, International Studies and Economics at Ca' Foscari University in Venice. He uses non-study time to write articles for Tuttologicsurf, the contemporary bible of Italian surfing. The rest of the time, he's working as a surf instructor. Passionate about analogic photography for a few years, he loves interpreting light to immortalise memories. This then translates into the production of VHS videos and analogic material for Gelov, the project he's cultivating together with a bunch of friends in Genova. They aim to bring their lifestyle to people's eyes and show them that you don't need to go far to have passions, you just need to create the right situaton: "We built our California with what Genova gave us from birth".
