When and where did you start Wing Foiling? I started winging on Maui by doing short downwind runs with a lot of drifting downwind. Eventually I was able to consistently get up on foil and stay upwind.
What’s your watersports history – from which side did you enter Winging? I first got into watersports with stand-up paddling and surfing. I began surf foiling when it was first starting to grow in 2016 and then started winging near the beginning in 2019.
What do you love about Wing Foiling? The versatility of winging is amazing. There are so many different places and types of conditions that you can wing in. When you are out on the water you can sail in almost any direction which gives you lots of freedom.
What’s your favourite conditions? I love when it is windy enough to ride a 3m wing with fun size waves. Waves are great because every one is a little different which keeps each session interesting.
What’s your top advice for a beginner? My best advice would be to avoid falling on top of the foil by tipping in the same direction as the board.
Boom or handles? Both are great for different things. I like the versatility that the boom gives you when placing your hands and the control from the handles is excellent.
