iballa moreno sup

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!

So come on girls… if Iballa can do it, you can too!


Iballa Moreno is a formidable water woman with countless windsurfing wave world titles to her name.  We haven’t seen Iballa on the Stand Up World Tour since last year at the Turtle Bay event. But going by her free surfing videos over the last year, and in this latest video, we see her laying down her usual calm, controlled and powerful SUP surfing style. If Iballa turns on her competition head in 2016 the girls are going to have to watch out. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with!

Stephane Etienne & Nicole Boronat ‘The Lovers’ and good friend Iballa Moreno have just come back from a great SUP surfing trip in Dakhla, Morocco with Soufiane Hamaini. An epic break on the Western Sahara coast, that produces clean predictable rights that are ideal for SUP. Dakhla is a place that rewards travelers who make the long journey via plane and taxi down south.

This is the start of Season 3 , Ep 1 of the 2015 “Serial Lovers”, a Web series featuring Stephane Etienne & Nicole Boronat. Watch their Season 2 Web series here.
