Why do you love SUP? 

I have always loved the water and all watersports. SUP gave me the opportunity to be on the water every day. I can do it no matter  the conditions and wherever I am in the world. I can do it on flat water, waves, downwind, rivers etc. As long as I have my board and my paddle.

How did you start Stand up paddling? 

I tried Surfing for the first time when I was nine and I loved it, a year later I went to Copenhagen to see a competition with Casper Steinfath where he taught me how to surf. He is a good friend and has helped me a lot through the years.

Your heroes? 

Casper Steinfath , Michael Phelps, Bear Grylls, Caeleb Dressel, Eliud Kipchoge, Dean Karnazes and Kelly Slater.

Best drink after an SUP training Session? 

Coconut water

Favourite paddling spot: 

I am lucky to have the opportunity to do SUP all over the world. Every place is special in it's own way. This year I went to Greece and Sardinia, both places were amazing. The water is really beautiful and clear, there is really good downwind conditions and the landscape with cliffs and beautiful cities were amazing as well. But for me, there's also something beautiful about being out in the middle of the winter at home while it's snowing.

Favourite piece of clothing on SUP:
