Leonardo Fioravanti is no stranger to the surf world. And the surf world is certainly no stranger to him. The Italian charmer has had a spotlight shining on him since before he even hit his teens. And why not? He had eerily good form, a myriad of airs, a fearless approach to fearsome waves and a carve as big as his smile. The world was his, and the hype was inevitable. But those days are over. Leo’s an adult now. He’s had a certain fire in him ever since returning to the water after breaking his back at Pipeline. He qualified for the CT in 2016 at only 18-years-old and he has already beaten both Kelly Slater and 2015 World Champ Adriano de Souza as a wildcard on the WSL. From here on out, Leo’s just going to let his surfing do the talking. Rest assured, the whole world will be listening.
