An ode to foiling
The perfect trip only comes round every once in a while. Our team have been lucky enough to experience several incredible locations and conditions in a fairly short time span so far.
Most recently the Takuma guys embarked on a full on adventure in pursuit of challenging conditions to test the latest Takuma gear and score the perfect light to capture the amazing scenes.
And so it was set, during the month of June our team riders, Matahi Drollet, Mo Chauvin and Leo Paul Etienne took a trip of a lifetime to explore the breathtaking shores of the Maldives.
Out on the water they were joined by Takuma’s CEO, Cyril Coste and French actor extraordinaire Vincent Cassel, both showing off some serious skills on the latest Takuma set up.
It was the first time the team had set foot on the islands of the Maldives and they were not disappointed. For our Guadeloupean rider Leo-Paul Etienne, the wave right in front of the paradisiac island of Kani was on par with the best wave he has ever foiled.
Spirits were running high and you could feel the positive energy flowing through everyone out on the water. The team spent 6 days on boats and jet skis having fun and giving it their best, all while pushing hard their foiling, wing foiling and efoiling skills.
The guys really set out to push the limits of our latest product releases. The RS master wing was thoroughly put through its paces and came out shining.
Our new CK Carbon and BK EBS boards lived up to expectations and delivered comfort in tricky conditions. The team also got to test out for the first time a selection of new gear that will be released later this year, so keep your eyes peeled for some exciting news.
Spoiler alert: Those of you looking for high performance and unmatched speed have something spectacular to look forward to!
The team brought back unforgettable memories, uniquely captured by our photographer Thomas Bevilacqua. We can’t wait to show off his amazing footage, but for now we leave you with a sneak peek of what’s to come. Enjoy!
