Train hard, go fast, have fun

How did you get into SUP ?

When I saw people doing SUP, I wanted to try it  myself.
For my birthday I got a SUP course as a present, so at the age of 12 I was on a board for the first time. Thanks to my mom who organized this!

 

What do you do before getting in the water?

Before a race: lie down, breathe and listen to music, after warming up.
Before a training: Warm-up!

 

Tell us about your best SUPing 

Surfing my first real wave at Rocky Point in Fuerte. The conditions where absolutely perfect with no wind. Pure waves, pure fun.

 

Who you would like to say thank you to ?

Katrin Gerber, who supported  me at the beginning of my career and also because of her I am now where I am. My coach Susanne Lier, I’ve learnt a lot from her, she introduced me to my first international races, introduced me to important people in our sport and took me further and further.
