Started windsurfing when I was 6 years old on Fehmarn. My dad teached me all the basics and we went somewhere to the baltic sea every weekend. I saw some pro windsurfers during the Surffestival and I was totally stoked about their freestyle moves. Got my first freestyle board to birthday and started to train, also participate at the Young Guns Camp in Prasonisi/Rhodes for two years in a row. Pushed myself with some local windsurfers every weekend and started to compete some local freestyle competitions. Became Junior European Champion and Windsurfing talent of the year in 2010 and started to organize&compete the German Freestyle Battles. 2013 I joined the Gun Sails Team and had the opportunity to visit Maui/Hawaii for the Photoshooting, a dream come true! Also started to push my video/photo skills to capture the Gun Sails Shootings and some other interesting projects around the globe. 2016 I developed a brand new Freestyle Sail for Gun Sails the „YEAH“. 2016 and 2017 I became Vice German in the Freestyle ranking and started to compete in the German Slalom discipline.
