They didn't know it was possible, so they did it anyway.

How did you get into kite foiling? 

I was doing twin tip airstyle and I wanted to get more height and speed, so I chose to combine foiling with freestyle.

One sentence about the product that you are using?

I mostly ride with my HALO and a POCKET CARBON board mounted with an ESCAPE foil. With this high-quality equipment, I can really focus on my practice, and be directly connected to the elements to push my limits.

What do you do before getting in the water?

I look at the wind strength and the waves to choose the best kite size.

Tell us about your best kite foil memory.

That would be when I landed my first kite loop board off because it’s the trick that scares me the most, but I really wanted to pull it off!

And your worst wipeout.

Let’s knock on wood because I haven’t had any at this time. I am very vigilant and conscientious about the dangers of our sport.

Who you would like to say thank you to?

To all my family who have always helped me to realize my dream, as well as F-ONE and MANERA for their support with quality equipment.
