When and where did you start Wing Foiling? 
I started winging on the lake, followed by sessions on mauritius and capetown. 
First with a Big board and a big stable foil.  

What’s your watersports history – from which side did you enter Winging? 
I was competing many years on the Windsurf freestyle worldtour and i love to windsurf in waves.

What do you love about Wing Foiling? 
Hovering above the water surface just feels incredibly good. Its even loads of fun in conditions that are really crap for windsurfing and gives me more days on the water. Winging makes spots „surfable“ that I could not even dream of before.

What’s your favourite conditions? 
I enjoy most of them. Doesn‘t matter. 
Flat water, chop, waves, light wind, strong wind,... everything is a nice experience and feels good in its own way.

What’s your top advice for a beginner? 
Just go for it and enjoy once you are flying.

Boom or handles?
I prefere handles at the moment because i love minimalistic things, its light and if you crash on it its softer than a boom.
