Who’s riding what? – Iballa Moreno / SUP surf

Iballa Ruano Moreno is a name well known in not only the SUP world but the windsurf world too. Growing up on Pozo in the Canary Islands alongside her equally talented twin sister Daida, the Moreno Twins have been enjoying the sea from a young age. Now a professional SUP surfer and windsurfer, and with an easily recognisable powerful surfing style Iballa is definitely one of those waterwomen that girls (and guys!) aspire to! She has a rack of SUP surfing podium results to her name including this years Spanish and the European SUP surfing champion. And she is also the current windsurf World Champion in waves. Together with her sister Daida they have been World Champions 26 times between 1999-2016!  The Moreno Twins have definitely had their fair share of podium finishes!

12’6×24 and 14’x23 allstar: For race training when there is no surf.
Paddles: 2. I use an Enduro paddle for SUP surfing. And a BOLT 38 for SUP racing as it’s a little more flexible for my weight.
