How do your friends call you?
Meiki

You have been kiting since 2007, do you have a favorite kitespot?
There are so many ... I love them all. But I really enfoy kiting here up in the north of Germany.

Which is your favorite board?
North Team Series 138.

Meike, who or what inspires you?
My passion is to search for the best wind and spot. There's no better feeling than the one you have after having spent a perfect day on the water.

If you had to pick two athletes, dead or alive, to go kite with. Who would they be?
I would pick my three brothers (they count as two since two are twins ?).

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Haha, my hometown Glücksburg – as I got all my friends here and the best spots around me.

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
When I wake up, the first thing I do is taking a glance at the water to check the conditions. If they're good I go on the water. If not, I go running or to the gym instead. I love living a healthy life, therefore I do sports every day and eat fresh and healthy food. I get most of my motivation by good music and perfect conditions. My goals for this year are to compete in the German Nationals and on the European Tour. As well as travel and discover new spots.
