Riding waves in Portugal

"Can you ride the boards in waves?"

A common goal at the Awake office has always been to surf real waves with our boards. For one person, in particular, it has been more important. Team rider Florian "Flo" Garbaccio is a true waterman who grew up surfing on the west coast of France. He has dabbled in everything from Kite Surfing to Wake Boarding over the years, so naturally, when riding the electric boards for the first time, he knew that one day he'd be out surfing in real waves with these boards.
