How I started SUP: My parents are enthusiastic windsurfers and so me and my little sister been every weekend on some beaches as long as we can remember. My father was chief editor of the german Surfers Mag so he came in touch with SUP very early. We are often in Denmark for surfing and windsurfing. But learning to surf is difficult in north sea waves. When I saw that my dad get`s a lot of waves on his SUP I thought it could be fun to try it, too. That was about three years ago. It was funny and I learn fast to ride the waves with the SUP. Now I go out on a sup every day I could. As we life in Hamburg not far away from some nice Alster channels we go out with the whole family on flat water, too. Last year I started in my first race events and found out that I can paddle pretty fast ;D
Best SUP day in my life: Always the last one with nice waves
Other sponsors besides Fanatic: Xcell Wetsuits
My Goals: To ride big waves and get results at race events which I`m happy with. But the most important thing is to have always fun in the water.
My Slogan: If it swells, ride it!
