Titouan Galea needs no introduction, he's the current world champion wing foiler. He talks to me from his current home in Montpelier, France all about wing foiling, advanced technique tips, including back flips and 360 spins, equipment, and life.  Enjoy the show on YouTube or as audio only podcast, just search for the "Blue Planet Show" on your podcast app to listen to it on the go.

Damien Leroy and Gwen Le Tutour have been on a roll, posting two great instructional videos per week and helping lots of people getting started in the sport. They are humble but are clearly exceptional humans and motivated by a desire to help people.

Alex Aguera started GoFoil and plays such an important role in the development of the sport. He basically invented the foil that allowed Kai Lenny to do downwinders on a big long board and basically kick-started this whole sport of foiling in the surf and now with wings.  We talk about the new wing foil boards and wings that GoFoil is coming out with.

Excellent interview. I watched it from beginning to end. Really enjoyed hearing about the early days of windsurfing right up to now with the early days of wing foiling.

Really enjoyed this one, thanks for this Robert and for  taking the time with all of these. It's appreciated. I also greatly enjoy your crew video recaps, next best thing to being there, you guys really share the stoke.

Welcome to Season 2 of the Blue Planet Show.  It's been a while but I'm planning to put out more great interviews this summer.  Starting off with a group of 5 of us talking all about wing foiling with tips for all levels of wingers.
We talk about wing handling in onshore waves, jumping off the lip and landing back in the wave, back loops, getting up on foil, equipment tips, and tips for beginners and those getting started.
