"I started wingfoiling 10 months ago, as I was seeing my windsurfing friends enjoying it so I was excited to try this new sport! When I'm winging, I feel free! I love the "flying" sensation and the possibility to do everything with the same gear: wave riding, jumping or just cruising. My goals right now are progressing in freestyle and waves, sharing great moments on the water and exploring new places on the wingfoil!" - says Flora.

"I started wingfoiling with my brother Camille because both of us love all water sports and the ocean! I can speak about “training” but I prefer to say “riding” because for me having fun in the water is the most important thing, mostly with this new sport which has a real freeride spirit. I particularly like strong winds and big waves. Currently, I’m working on tricks which make the helmet useful haha” - says Julien.

“I started wing foiling as an alternative sport to kitesurfing because there are no waves at my home spot, and after trying it I was totally hooked. What motivates me the most in this sport is being able to ride dozens of waves in one session, be without the wing in pure surf, or use the wing to jump off the waves.“ Learn more about Hugo and other riders on our website: www.wingfoilworldtour.com #globalwingsports #wingfoil #wingsurf #wingsurfing #gwa #wingfoilworldtour #gwawingfoil
Pro freestyle kitesurfer @paulanovotna, one of the most dedicated off-the-water athletes says that downwind pumping is no joke. “Pumping on the foil is exhausting! It’s like a burner and workout for your legs so for sure, being fit on the water helps with every kind of Watersport.” - she says. If it tires someone as fit as Paula, it is most likely is a recipe for spaghetti legs for the rest of us. So we better get training!
