WHERE IS HOME FOR YOU?

I live near Munich and still go to school (9th grade). In winter, I’m usually in Laax snowboarding in the halfpipe.

HOW DID YOU START SURFING AND WHERE?

I started surfing at the Floßlände in Munich and in the ocean in France when I was about 3 years old. We spend a lot of our holidays in France, but every now and then we also go to California or Bali.

WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE WAVE/SPOT?

Lafitenia in France and Trestles in California.

SOMETHING ABOUT SURFING YOU WISH YOU KNEW 10 YEARS AGO?

I was only 5 then :) I didn’t think too much about surfing back then.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR DOWNTIME IN BETWEEN SURFING?

Skateboarding in the summer and snowboarding in the winter. I also like to paint and play the piano.
