Nixon | The Four Moors: a journey through Sardinia
Italy is not known for waves but there's always exceptions. When a significant Mediterranean swell arised on the charts, Nixon longtime surfers Marlon Lipke and Gony Zubizarreta embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, to join Roberto D'Amico for a 3-day surf mission. 'The Four Moors' is a short movie filmed and edited by Francesco Thilo Sili The trip seen by Gony: I was just arriving home after the WQS in Martinique and got a call from Marlon Lipke saying that Italy was going to be pumping the next day! Roby Damico was already planning everything from Rome. We jumped on a plane that next morning and got the Ferry to Sardina straight away, we had to get there in time. The Mediterranean can be very tricky, swells come and go very quickly! I was impressed by the quality and power of some pointbreaks we surfed. Super rippable waves with pretty cool locals or even empty line ups and little bays with beautiful backgrounds and nobody around. The Italians are so funny, very open and social, they are constantly joking and laughing which made our trip one for the books! We had an awesome time, surfing all day and eating pasta amatriciana cooked by the master Chef Roberto Damico aka DiMaggio. The pizza was the best Ive ever tried for sure. Food is out of control there. I miss it already. After surfing our brains out in Sardina we came back to Ladispoli and visited Rome, it looks like a massive museum, with monuments and sculptures everywhere you go. You can choose from all kinds of typical restaurants and bars, the streets are full of people hanging out ,eating and drinking. Having a great time basically. It was an amazing trip, I loved Italy and have to admit that Im a fan of surfing in the Mediterranean Sea. Thank you Roby and family for treating us like kings! Also big thanks to Francesco Thilo for the filming and editing! Eugenio and all the friends that made this journey unforgettable for me! Big Hugs Guillaume
