Do you have a favourite spot / training location?
Lakey Peak, Indonesia / East Coast, Australia

Who or what inspires you in your daily life?
I love watching the pros (especially Tyler, Owen and Mikey Wright), but who inspires me the most are usually surfer, who surf only a little bit better than me and froth at least as hard as I do. I wanna be as good as them then and try new tricks. Surfing like a pro would be sick but a way harder goal to reach.

Do you follow a special way of life?
Nothing is impossible. If you really want something there is always a way. You just gotta know what you want which is the hardest part. In general, I have a really healthy life style, but most important is your mindset. Be happy is sometimes easier said than done. Being able to spend so much time in the water is a great gift and I always wanna have fun in the surf. Going for a surf is always better than not going even when the ocean is tired sometimes and not delivering the most perfect waves.

What is the best place on earth?
If I would know it I would live there already, but second best is definitely Munich.

If you could pick two surfers (dead or alive) to go surf with, who would they be and where would you go?
Tyler, Owen and Mikey Wright (sorry cant decide) and go on a boat trip in the Maldives.

What are your goals for 2018? What do you want to achieve next?
Get betting in surfing and inspire more girls to surf and dominate the line-ups with them.

Is there something more you want to tell us?
Happiness is the only thing which multiplies when shared.

One quote about SWOX?
I got to know about SWOX when I won a hoddie and sunscreen during the XGames in Munich. I loved it especially the Zinc. Finally, I didn’t burn my nose anymore when I surfed my standard 3 hour sessions ;).
