Manu, who or what inspires you?
The people that I am meeting daily during my travels are inspiring my life.

If you had to pick two athletes, dead or alive, to go kite with. Who would they be?
I would travel to Graham’s Place in Guanja/Honduras, which is my new favourite paradise and I would share the beautiful turquoise water with everyone that shares my passion.

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Home, where my family is and where I can recharge my battery. But I saw already so many beautiful places that I cant decided yet where to settle down in the future.

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
I believe in charma, I do Yoga and try to meditate as good as I can. I like to cook and eat superfood. I love to do sport, I could not live without it and my biggest passion is Kitesurfing. I am doing the PKRA World Tour and I hope that I can keep my place under the top 5 Women in Freestyle. Furthermore I started to change up my training with kiting and wakeboarding over obstacles (slider and kickers) where I want to progress.

Is there something more you want to tell us?
Believe in yourself and work hard to realize and live your dreams. Staying safe in the sun is especially important for me as kitesurfen and I am really grateful to SWOX for keeping my skin protected.
