Getting Lifty in Côte d’Azur | Episode 5

In the final Episode of Getting Lifty in Côte d’Azur, exclusively filmed for the Foiling Magazine, Alex & Alex meet up with Stan and Anna who show them some local eFoil spots…

“Sometimes it is less about the show and more about the people. Stan Koziello and his daughter Anna are pioneers of eFoiling in France, Stan was my very first account when I joined Lift and he preordered one of the first Lift E1 foils to be delivered in France. Stan’s wife told him he was crazy to put his money on the internet for such a crazy project but Stan did it anyway. Stan believed in Lift and now hundreds of new eFoilers have learnt how t eFoil thanks to Stan and his daughter, Anna.

Efoil Côte d’Azur is now one of our most experienced and passionate schools and resellers in Europe. There is true passion and dedication behind this family business to provide you the best lessons. If you are in the South of France, they will show the bay of Cannes like you have never seen it before. We are very lucky to count such passionate people inside our team and this is what makes our job at Lift so special.” – Alex Maes

“It was at this point of the trip we were all getting a little worn out, I wasn’t sure I wanted to go on a day trip on a boat but as soon as I saw the area we were headed to and the amazing clear day I was excited to make the most of it. Picturesque hidden bays and and winding cliffs and coastline looked like something out of a James Bond movie, the location and company was hard to beat, I couldn’t imagine a nicer place to take a ride and learn how to fly.” – Alexander James Lewis Hughes

Produced by Lift Foils and Mario Alvisi. Filmed and edited by Alexander James Lewis Hughes. Filmed on the islands of Lérin.
