Development and progression are at the forefront of our endeavors, which is why Edoardo Papa is a natural fit for our Team. Back in 2011, Edoardo first stepped on a Carver after asking a stranger to try it and hasn’t looked back once. Since then, he and his father, Andrea, have taken his training even further, and developed The WoodWave, which is a wave bank training apparatus they have at Andrea’s surf school in Italy. During this process, not only has Edoardo’s performance skyrocketed, but Billabong and Vans have taken notice and picked him up as well. It’s been amazing to watch Edoardo’s surfing develop as he discovered our surfskates.
