Marco Giorgi, Raw In Indo

Uruguayan royalty

Remember way back in 2010, when an unknown surfer with a name from a cologne ad defeated World No.3 Jordy Smith in the O’Neill Coldwater Classic in Tasmania? Or just last February, when the same surfer knocked out guys like Jack Robinson and Koa Smith during the Volcom Pipe Pro? No matter which-way you remember, Marco Giorgi has always been a dangerous force on the ‘QS, and he’s almost single-handedly carried the torch for Uruguay in the surf world. Here’s Giorgi in-between qualifying events, testing out the fin boxes in Indo before he kicks off the opening round at Sunset Beach.
