Interview: Wingfoil Big Wave with Clement Roseyro
Clement Roseyro sent us some pictures of his recent Wingfoil Big Wave session. The big waves are simply amazing, but how is it to wing foil in these waves? We asked the Duotone and Fanatic team rider a few questions about his session.
Who is Clement Roseyro
Name: Clement Roseyro
Age: 23years old
Home Spot: Bask Country
Where was your big wave wing foil session?
I have spent some time surfing in Nazare / Belharra and I have always wondered if I could wing foil on these waves. Sadly I have never got the right conditions but lately I have been to this secret off-shore reef where finally the conditions were perfect for a wingfoil big wave session.
What goes through your mind, when you ride waves like this?
I’m really focused at 100%. I try to anticipate all my waves thought about my turns and lines that I have to take. The years of big surfing allow me to be quite relaxed I think.
Can you tell us about your scariest wing foil experience?
I don’t know if I really had a bad adventure in wing foil. I crashed before a wave but my wing saved me.
You have any safety when riding big waves?
When I surf big waves in surfing we have safety of course but in wingfoil big wave on this session we did not have real jetski safety. We had the boats there on the side of the break.
What gear set up did you use in this session?
I used a Fanatic 82cm wing foil mast with a 66cm fuselage and a 750 front wing carve a sky wing 55L board and the 4.5m Duotone DLAB V2 wing.
What are your goals for the year 2023? Will we see you in even bigger waves?
I want to enjoy on the water do a lot of foil in wing foil or in surf foil and some very big waves in surf foil in Nazare. Fingers crossed i get some even better and bigger waves to ride.
