Watch: Sardinian Crew

Another great video from our favourite Mediterranean surf chaser, Roberto D'Amico. Roby capitalised on a rare south swell and teamed up with Marlon Lipke, Aritz Aranburu and Gony Zubizarreta while also running into locals Francisco Porcella and Nicola Bresciani. Mixing it up from a wedgey left point to some windy rights, it shows there are some quality options in the Med.

What's the issue? Not playing for you?

So here is my experience with Vimeo. The auto setting is rubbish, it tries to stream videos at too high a rate for either my connection or my device. What I do is go to the settings and turn it down to a lower resolution maybe 260p for my phone, don't really needed it higher for such a small screen anyway. It is a pain and I prefer YouTube as well but this often helps.

Aghh, yeah I have the same issue, auto never chooses the right stream! Annoying.

Touching swords isn’t a good idea either.

and unlike you tube, you can't preview by hovering over the video loading bar to see what frames are ahead, - which I ALWAYS use to cut out the guff and get to the surfing.

Breath. Murdoch's empire will one day fail to control our minds.

Loved the surfing with the sound down, there are so many underground bands, why choose that track???

Ahh yeah agree with that comment. The last thing you go to Europe for is waves as there is so much to take in. Good clip though and if you have ever been to the Med you wonder how they get waves like this as most of the time it is like a lake.

Um........probably cause it's a region you don't associate with quality surf....novelty etc. Level of surfing was vgood with a couple of Euros best.

Glass is always half empty for some people innit!
