What other water sports do you do and how long?

Windsurfing : started in 2014, Kitesurfing : started in 2019, Sailing : since forever (Carried by the wind)

What do you like about wing foiling?

The feeling of weightlessness, gear is more practical for travel, accessible to all

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

I learned with friends, in one day I was able to foil because my windsurf skills helped me 😊 I’ve been winging for almost a year now.

What is your favorite gear combination and why?

My board is either a 5’2 75L Takuma (for the light wind sesh) or 4’4 39L Takuma (really reactive, feels like you have nothing under your feet). Wing is 3.5 m Wingride III Takuma (every conditions). Foil is 980 Kujira Takuma with 75 mast.

What was your favorite wing surfing session?

My top one wing sesh was at home (New Caledonia), sunset timing, light wind, crystal and warm water 💙

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

At the beginning use a board on which you don't have a flotation problem. Make sure you are in a safe place and know the safety rules. For the wing, the front hand should always be above the back hand, you should always keep an angle of incidence in order for the wing to carry you! Stretch out your arms, look where you are going and off you go!

What is your biggest water sport achievement?

An attempt to cross the Atlantic Ocean on a sailing boat in solo and 2x Australian windsurfing champion.
