When and where did you start Wing Foiling?
I started Wing Foiling in 2022 by myself in Torbole and I loved it from the beginning.

What’s your watersports history – from which side did you enter Winging?
Before Winging I was a professional windsurfer in IQ Foil.

What do you love about Wing Foiling?
What I love about Wing Foiling is jumping and learning new tricks every day especially because I came from 10 years of Windsurf Racing and I wanted so badly to start Freestyle in one way or another.

What’s your favourite conditions?
My favorite conditions are strong wind and a bit of waves.

What’s your top advice for a beginner?
For beginners I suggest going to a DPC and learn with an instructor.

Boom or handles?
I personally prefer handles because they are more powerful, and they let you jump higher.
