How old were you when you started wakeboarding?
What is your most memorable experience on your wakeboard?
I think there are a lot of memorable experiences and it’s too hard to pick just one. The best moments have been landing new tricks no other woman has landed before. Furthermore becoming World Champion is a memorable experience!
Favorite spot to ride?
Wasserski Bleibtreusee, Twin Cable Beckum in Germany
IWP in Thailand, Hip-Notics in Turkey and CWC in the Philippines
Which wake athlete do your respect the most and why?
Lior Sofer, because he is able to do nearly every trick and is one of the most (maybe the most) well-rounded riders I know!
What are you going to do when you retire from wake?
I’ve just finished my bachelor degree in Business Administration at the University of Cologne. I will go on with my Master degree in Marketing or Sports Management. After wakeboarding I will do anything in this direction as my profession.
