What’s your go-to foil and board combination, what do you ride on a typical day and why for both wingfoiling and foil surfing? For wingfoiling, I really like the Rocket Wing-S Carbon 36L with 530 Escape HM Carbon. I like that combination because the 530 is really fast which is awesome to go high on my tricks. The board has enough volume to get fast back on the foil and is small enough to rotate easily during the tricks. For foil surfing my go-to is the Rocket Surf 33L, 1080 Phantom Carbon or 740 Phantom-S Carbon. The Rocket Surf 33L is easy to paddle and its light. I like the Phantom 1080 for the glide and the 740 for tricks.
