Interview with Iballa Ruano
Iballa Ruano, capitana de la Selección Española de SUP

For almost all of us who practice water sports, especially windsurfing or paddlesurf, the name of Iballa is quickly related to that smiling face that the Canarian often gives us, but also to the elite sport at the highest level.

Both, Iballa and her sister Daida, have an enviable sports career. Between them, or what is the same, MorenoTwins, already accumulate a whopping 28 world titles in Windsurf. If we focus on Iballa, in addition to its 10 individual titles in wind, the last cropped a few days ago, we are also talking about a top world competitor in the SUP surfing mode.

This week we were able to carry out an interview with Iballa, for the ISA World SUP and Paddleboard World Championship to be held at the end of November in Riyue Bay, at the Chinese island of Hainan, and one more year she will be the captain of the Spanish Stand Up Paddle and Paddleboard Team.
