• Billabong Stretch Your Summer 2010 Tour - Presented By Monster Energy - Viareggio and Versilia Coast

Viareggio & Versilia Coast. The final stops of the italian leg of the Stretch Your Summer tour kicked off in Viareggio, Forte Di Marmi and Marina Di Pisa on the Versilia Coast. Friday June 18th was a kind of a transition day but the evening was mc'd by local legend Massimo Betazzi at his HQs, Il Bagno Piave, with a gargantuan dinner... again. Later, all the Viareggio surfing scene was invited to hang out with us at the Aloha Beach Bar where TransparentSea has been screened. The day after, Rasta and the Billabong/Monster bus stopped by Teddy Palomino's surf shop. Then, the brand new "Wave" surfshop had a full DJ rocking for our arrival...  As usual, exquisite italian pastries and local beverages were on offer. The following day we surfed/body-surfed Forte di Marmi at the locals favorite peak "Il Pontile". Given an injured ankle a break Rasta hit the 3 foot surf on a longboard an managed to sneak into a full clean little barrel on one wave.  He then blew everybody away with his body surfing skills…

Our last stop was Marina Di Pisa and it was not complete without a visit to the famous "leaning tower of Pisa" and one more Gelato hit!!! The Billabong Stretch Your Summer Tour presented by Monster Energy finished with more amazing Italian food at the Bagno Pisa followed by Rasta giving the local surf crew a brief on his travelling lifestyle and what the TransparentSea movie was all about... the party then rocked on till early morning...
