Psych Up Songs: Leo Fioravanti’s Qualification Soundtrack

Music sets the tone — literally. It has that transcendental capacity to affect our mood and put us in a whole new mindset. Wanna relax? Put on some tunes. Wanna focus? Tunes. Wanna psych up? Tunes, tunes, tunes and more tunes. Just push play and go.

Well, mostly talent and hard work — but maybe a little bit of music. Since it lead him to the top, Leo wanted to share a five song pump-up playlist with you. It may or may not qualify you for the 2018 CT — but it will definitely make you want to go surfing.
