I tried many sports, none of them more than 6 months, none of them gave me anything. Then I discovered the art of catch&throw with the disc and I found out that once I started to play it was always hard stopping. While I was looking for a professional disc on the web I get amazed on heinsville.com. After 2 months of training I understood Freestyle Frisbee was the discipline fit for me. I went to FPA 2003 and everything was better than I thought. After FPA, I built up a freestyle website, in which I put all the videos from FPA; and I played more than ever determined to achieve better the art of freestyle frisbee.
I partecipated to Romashred'03 with Stefano Mestroni, I had a great time and I arrived 17th. I played with Stefano at Paganello and it's been wonderful! Then I partecipated to Podersdorf disc Opening with Clay, it's been an incredible experience! At FPA I felt in heaven, and I reached for the first time my personal targets! Now I'll spend the whole winter playing mostly alone with one of the worst wind on earth trying to achieve a complete new level of gameplay!
Wow, I love freestyle!
