Wing Foiling Since / How did you get into wing foiling?:
I started wing foiling in December 2020. I met Damien LeRoy (one of Cabrinha’s pro riders) while doing some filming in Florida, after being done shooting, he asked if I had ever tried wing foiling. I had been wanting to try for years but never had a chance. He let me borrow his gear and that was it, I was hooked! After the first 2 hours, I could barely stay on my feet for more than a few seconds, but somehow I loved the challenge and became obsessed with it. That was also the start of Damien and I collaboration creating YouTube content to inspire people to get on the water winging, kiting, foiling, etc…
Still working on mastering any wing foiling discipline, but I enjoy riding waves and doing some freestyle.
