Pro surfer and model from Spain, Lucia Martino rode the JetSurf last year and loved it.
CAN YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO OUR FANS?
My name is Lucia Martiño, I’m a professional surfer from Spain.
I started surfing when I was 11 and now I’m competing around the world in the QS circuit of the WSL. I love to travel as a freesurfer too.
WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER MOTOSURFING?
I first discovered motosurfs last year in Prague and Brno, I went there one week to ride and meet all the people working on the product. It was a fantastic experience, a great sport for all who love speed & water sports…
HOW IS MOTOSURFING DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SPORTS?
It’s different because it’s the combination of many sports, sports that have a lot of adrenalin so when you ‘re practicing motosurfing you can feel many incredible sensations.
I found many differences with surfing, weight should go on the back foot. I’m regular in surfing so I needed to press with my left hand the speed button but I’m right handed.
THERE ARE WAY MORE MEN THAN WOMEN PRACTICING THE SPORT… IS IT A MAN SPORT OR DO YOU THINK IT WILL CHANGE IN THE FUTURE?
I think it will change, maybe the women found it dangerous but it’s not. If you fall, it’s water…
When this sport is better known, there will be more women who dare to practice, I encourage all the girls who want to try , it’s fun!!
WHAT COULD BE THE BEST TIPS TO GIVE TO SOMEONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO START MOTOSURFING?
To start without fear.
Press the button with your normal hand.
Enjoy the ride!
SOMETHING ELSE TO ADD?
I loved the feelings of motosurfing and I would love to try with waves !! 🙂
