Shredding Padang Padang doesn’t come easy even with two working legs. Fabrizio Passetti has overcome all kinds of obstacles to drop in with just one and a homemade prosthetic.

Sample:

Fabrizio Passetti is an Italian surfer who grew up on the picturesque coastline of the football boot. Tragically, he lost his leg during a bike accident at just 17-years-old – he’s 36 now. So, when a video dropped into our inbox of Fabrizio surfing Padang Padang, we were stoked to see adaptive surfing in Indo and that the surfer was from Italy – which can be a hotbed of setups, if the time and conditions align.

Anyway, turns out, Fabrizio has quite the inspiring story. He is determined to push adaptive surfing after going through a hell of a rough few years coming to terms with the amputation of his leg. Love, life, grief and acceptance are all driving factors in Fabrizio’s surfing. We tapped him up to ask a few questions.
