Questions & Answers

What other water sports do you do and how long?

Over the last couple of years I got into: surfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, (wing/surf)foiling. Lately mostly (only) surfing and foiling. Oh and during the winter I also like to surf frozen water (snowboarding) ;)

That it's so new and improving so quickly! For now, I like waveriding combining with big jumps on the wave the most.

Having some experience in kitefoiling I could foil leftside rightside in my first session.

Wing: Slingshot Dart 4m, Board: Ride engine escape pod 4'4, and Foil: Slingshot Infinity 76 wing.

8 bft side-shore wind with big mushy rollers on the outer banks of my homespot. On the big lake or out on the sea. Depending on the wind direction.

You can see that there are already specific wings and foils starting to get into the market. I think every disciplines is getting specific gear and that all of them are going to improve a lot! This is only the beginning.

Don't start to small. Make sure to have a big board and get all of the basics steady! You're gonna progress real quick if you go out as much as possible.
