How did you get into foiling and wing foiling? 

My dad taught me how to foil in July 2020 when I was 11. I have been passionate about it ever since.

What do you do before getting in the water? 

I check the weather conditions and the spots’ webcams.

Tell us about your best foiling memory. 

I was wing foiling out at Kanaha on the day before my birthday. While I was riding, I noticed that Kai Lenny was out as well. A couple of times when I did some tricks, I could hear him cheer me on! It was a great start to my birthday weekend.

Worst wipeout? 

I took a foil to the bridge of my nose.

Who would you like to say thank you to? 

I would first like to say thank you to my parents for all that they have done for me and for how much they have supported me. I would also like to say thank you to the F-ONE team for being interested in me and believing in me!

What’s your favorite F-ONE gear and why?

My favorite gear would have to be the ROCKET WING-S board, ESCAPE HM CARBON 530 and a 3.0 m² STRIKE. I love this quiver because it is super light and really fun and easy to ride!
