How did you get into surf foiling and downwinding?

I started windsurfing at eight years old in Torbole right on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy. I continued windsurfing and competed worldwide in the Techno 293 category. I then advanced to RS:X and iQFoil to chase my Olympic dream, but as COVID-19 came around, all the competitions were shut down. So, I decided to move to Hawaii for university and started prone and downwind foiling.

What do you do before getting in the water? 

Get hydrated and listen to music full blast in my truck to get pumped up.

Tell us about your best memory on the water.

Downwind prone at sunset on the Kaiko’os to Tonggs run on Oahu.

Worst wipeout? 

Surfing at Sunset Beach, I took a two-wave hold down and thought I was going to faint.

Who would you like to say thank you to? 

My uncle who takes me out on his boat and tows me into waves every day, and my auntie who cooks me dinner and takes care of me.

A few words on your F-ONE quiver.

There’s nothing like the SK8 650 and SK8 750 to surf and carve like mad in the waves.
