Passionate about sports, Claudia started skiing at the age of 3 and already at that age, she demonstrated a strong competitiveness and a will to win. In the last 10 years of her skiing career, she won all competitions, dreaming of becoming a ski instructor at the tender age of ten years. With the Dolomites, one of Italy’s beautiful mountain ranges, over a thousand kilometers away, this presented a challenge though.

In June 2021 Claudia enrolled in a summer camp at the SUP Academy in Taranto, led by Mario Tagarelli (Instagram), and Claudia turned out to be a natural, taking to the sport immediately. In mid-2022, Claudia abandoned other athletic and artistic endeavours to focus completely on competitive Stand Up Paddling.

In the same year the first races in Italy and Europe, she won almost all the Italian races, the Sprint and the technical both under 15 and under 18 at the Odra Sup Race Raciborz – Poland, and the Kids race at the ICF World Championship in Gdynia, Poland.

In September 2023, was called up from FISW (Italian Surfing Federation) to the Italian national team to attend the ISA World Cup Championship in France and the EuroSUP European Championship in Portugal, where she competed in the Senior Category. Claudia was summoned also to the Italian national team by the FICK (Canoe Federation) to attend the ICF world championship in Pattaya – Thailand, where she won two Gold medals in Junior Long Distance and Technical Races

Claudia trains in one of the most beautiful spots in Puglia “Lido Gandoli”, where her club SUP Academy Taranto is based.
