Francisco Porcella is an island boy from Cagliari Sardegna, Italy and Haiku, Maui Hawaii. He grew up a soccer player and then quickly falling in love with the ocean his surfing career began. From age 13 Francisco was consumed with a variety of water sports. As an environmentalist at heart, Francisco passionately has become big wave surfing. He has been present in the scene since the very beginning of the paddle movement out at Pe’ahi, Maui four years ago and chasing big swells around the world. Bagging nominees on the XXL Big Wave Awards and competing in the Big Wave World Tour is where Francisco’s focus is currently. Watch him come out of a barrel backside this coming winter season.
