About you in a few words: Born in Munich / Germany, I have always loved the mountains, and spent most weekends on the snowboard. Did a fair bit of wakeboarding, too, but there had to be more…. From the first second on the board I was hooked, and there was no way back. After a few years of dreaming about waves each day and deciding on holiday destinations based on the opportunity to surf (well, which is what I still kind of do), I moved to Oz.
Local break: Bondi Beach
What I love about surfing: Experiencing the power and beauty of nature, being in the present and feeling in sync with the elements, having fun and sharing waves with good mates and simply the feeling of riding a wave
What I hate about surfing: Crowds, aggro people, bluebottles
Favourite surfspot in Oz: Bendalong, Treachery, Central Coast, Bondi
Favourite surfspot overseas: Ulus, Serangan, Pavones & Santa Teresa / Costa Rica, Eisbach / Munich
Favourite surfboard: Both of my DHD boards
Favourite surfer: Hard to answer…there’s so many amazing surfers out there, from little indo groms who are so super keen, to pro surfers. It also really inspires me when I see girls surfing well!
Favourite surf movie: Brokedown Melody, September Sessions
What I do in real life: Event Management, surfing (isn’t that part of your “real” life, too?) and just having a good time
