You already started wing foiling four years ago, when the sport was still in its beginning. How did you get into it and when did you get hooked?
We started by riding with a wing downwind and the feeling was super fun and unique. We enjoyed winging the first time we went but once we started jumping and riding waves we were hooked.
As up-and-coming watermen, you are riding all foil variations from prone-, SUP- and pump-foiling - and even have surfed waves at Jaws. What is the new dimension Wing Foiling has added to your time on the water?
Wing Foiling has allowed us to spend much more time on the water on windy days, which on Maui is about 90% of the time. There are so many fun waves up and down the coast and the wing makes it possible to ride to almost anywhere you want to.
Jeffrey, in August 2020 you were the first to land a backflip Wing Foiling. How did you get there and what has changed for you due to this coup?
After trying backflips while Surf Foiling I wanted to try something similar with the wing. After my first session I was able to flip over the wing and I was close enough that I knew it was possible. The next day I continued trying and was able to figure it out! After landing the backflip I was more comfortable trying new moves in the future.
Jeffrey & Finn, do you have any signature trick? Or new move you are working on?
If we had a signature trick it would probably be the backflip.
