“Ocean Cures”, Video with Wing Athlete Livio Menelau

Global Partner

Livio Menelau is a contract painter who lives on Maui. He began surfing at the age of eight, transferred to SUP at age twenty-four and now is fully stoked on wing foiling as an SIC waterman.

Wing Foiling Gives the Freedom to Explore the Ocean

Livio Menelau loves the freedom of wing foiling as he says it combines the elements of surfing, flying and sailing and gives riders the ability to enjoy the ocean so much more.  He loves to wing upwind using his SIC Raptor and then enjoy the feeling of flight on his downwind runs.

“I believe the ocean can cure a lot of people,” says Menelau.  Spending as much time on or near the water is how we can melt our stress away.  Watch the video to transport yourself there, now.
