stay salty

Christopher
Macdonald

Chris is known for his fearlessness and wild wing foiling tricks. Hugely popular on social media and the most followed wing foiler on the planet on Instagram, he has already gone viral a handful of times thanks to his impressive skills and sky-high jumps. 

He started wing foiling at 13 and is already making waves on the GWA Wingfoil World Tour in both elite and junior categories. The sky seems to be the limit for the teenager, who only wants to keep pushing boundaries, inventing new tricks, and growing his favorite sport.

STAY STOKED.

“I love everything about being on the water, especially the ocean: the power of the waves, the wind, the sun, the sand… !”

Christopher Interview

Can you tell us more about your passion for your sports?

I love everything about being on the water, especially the ocean: the power of the waves, the wind, the sun, the sand… Everything! It’s an amazing community of riders, and there’s a freedom that doesn’t seem to exist anywhere else.

 

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?

I’d buy more gear and travel. Dakhla and Mauritius are at the top of the list.

 

Next destination?

Many travels are in the works… Among them, France to stop by the F-ONE and MANERA offices, and then Spain for the GWA events.

“There’s a freedom that doesn’t seem to exist anywhere else.”

What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced? 

The F-ONE Next Generation camp in Tarifa.

 

What do you do with your day when there are no wind? 

I think about the wind and new tricks I could try, do online school, or edit videos.
