Hi Alena,

How do your friends call you?
Mermaid

You have been surfing since 2004, do you have a favorite surfspot?
There are so many … I love them all, as soon as they are clean and head high.

Which is your favorite board?
Board: 5’11“ from Semente, 5’8″ from Mark Phipps

Alena, who or what inspires you?
NATURE!

If you had to pick two surfers, dead or alive, to go surf with. Who would they be and where would you go?
I would take my two best friends and fly to an empty island with awesome waves and warm climate.

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Lucerne, but unfortunately there are no waves… so Lisbon or Biarritz: impressive culture, good food, nice people, great waves.

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
Haha, I’m a Swiss surfer … I think this is already pretty crazy … For the future I would like to realize interesting surf projects and surf good waves all over the world. I am ready for the next trip, let’s go!
