Dylan was only 5 years old when he first started surfing in his hometown Muizenberg. When Dylan was introduced to hydrofoiling in 2018, he was instantly hooked. Progression is definitely what drives him the most. To Dylan there is nothing better than the feeling of learning a new manoeuvre and the sense of accomplishment you feel in that moment. He starts his day by drinking 1 liter of Bulletproof coffee to get him frothed up and ready for some action. He is determined to learn how backflip on the wing as well as the loop variations that many of the freestyle windsurfers have been bringing to the wing scene.
If Dylan is not foiling, it is more than likely that he is working in his garden or doing one of the hiking trails in Cape Town. He likes to be in nature and cares about the well being of the planet. Once he completes his studies in sustainable development, he hopes to be able to do his bit to preserve the planet’s beauty.
