King of Slippy! Quiksilver contest in Livorno, Italy.

Can you imagine a Quiksilver contest on a fake wave on the top floor of a cruiser? 
Well, even if you can't, this is the King of Slippy!
I fortunately got an invite to this super new and exclusive contest... Its a first-timer but the result has been surely excellent!
Roberto D'Amico and Valentina Vitale (Male and Female italian champions, both sponsored by Quiksilver) challenged some of the best italian surfers on a Flowrider... on flowboards and bodyboards everything is admitted! ....until here everything is quite normal... but the flowrider was at the top of THIS cruiser!
....the Indipendence of the Seas...

C'MON I COULDNT BELIEVE IT! I was super happy when I got the invite and I really wanted to go and see how was it!
The only cruiser I ever got in was the one crossing the Tirreno Sea to go from Tuscany to Sardinia.. couldnt wait to go on a cruiser like this one ..

The undiscussed protagonist of this event were the wetsuits... what a great bunch of chyphers over there!!
