Questions & Answers

What other water sports do you do and how long?

I caught my first wave when I was 9 month young. I started surfing when I was 3 years old, windsurfing last month and wing and surf foiling this month.

What do you like about wing foiling?

I like it because you feel you are hovering over the water like flying on a magic carpet. I love all water sports but this one is new to me and I like challenges. My goal is to do a back flip on the wingfoil and jump.

How did you learn and how long did it take you to wing foil?

The week before I tried to wingfoil I learned how to windsurf. So I had some knowledge about the wind and going upwind or downwind which helped a lot because I never sailed before. When I tried the foil after a few hours I managed to make it fly!

What is your favorite gear combination and why?

I have the hover ascend 4’4” 40l + jet 1050 foil and a 2.8 Naish wing.

What was your favorite wing surfing session?

At Kanaha with small waves.

What tips or recommendations do you have for anyone who wants to start?

Do not give up! On the first few times it is going to be hard and frustrating but once you can do it it is such a good feeling.

What is your biggest water sport achievement?

Become a waterman like Kai Lenny.
