Competition Insights from the Super Foil Brasil
We're still reeling from an absolutely excellent first-ever GWA world tour event. This week we sat down (virtually of course) with a few of the top-placing riders from the event. They shared their favorite event tricks, how we can all progress at wing foiling and their go-to pre-competition snacks.
Read on for interviews with Titouan Galea (winner of the Surf Super Session and Wingfoil Freestyle events ) Michael Näf (placed second in the Surf Super Session event) Maxime Chabloz (took third in the Surf Super Session event) and Fernando Novaes (placed third in the Wingfoil Freestyle event).
Let's start with Titouan:
Favorite Trick of the competition?
Backflip, a trick I learned two days before the competition
How did you prepare for the competition?
I haven't really prepared for it, I just arrived two days before to get used to the conditions.
Where do you see wing sports going?
I think it's gonna be big when you see how fast it grows in only one year!
How do you recommend someone gets started with wing foiling?
It's a pretty easy sport, much easier than kite or windsurfing, so go for it, the best is to start into a school and to use big foil and boards.
How can our readers start taking their wing foiling to the next level?
They have to reduce the size of their gear, get your foil and board as small as possible.
What’s your favorite pre-competition food or snack?
I like to eat bananas before riding, especially the ones from tropical places like Brazil!
