Green light for the Nimbus Surf Hero 2021

Marina di Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi, Tuscany – 4.5 December 2021

Thanks to the collaboration between Black Yeti and Nimbus Surfing Club in Marina di Pietrasanta, the most important international tour for young athletes who want to earn a place in the world of action sports, is making its debut in the world of surfing. In fact, the time has come for the Black Yeti to dive into the sea, with the first ever surfing event in the history of the World Rookie Tour, the Nimbus Surf Hero.

Today it’s finally official: the waiting period is over and the forecast of a storm towards the weekend has turned on the green light for the start of the “Nimbus Surf Hero” competition. On Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of December the event will start for the U18 and U16 age groups, while for U16 and U14 the light is still yellow with a possible call for Monday December the 6th.

120 young pre-registered surfers will flock from all over Italy, the older ones ready to battle in the iconic competition field provided by the organization: the legendary Forte dei Marmi jetty, where many Mediterranean great surf comps took place since the ’80. The base camp of the event will be hosted at the Nimbus Surfing Club in Marina di Pietrasanta, for registrations, awards and other scheduled side activities.

Precisely to enhance an area rich in art and culture, the first in each category will be rewarded with a work by the painter Vincenzo Ganadu, an icon of surf art.
