How did I get into windsurfing? My dad took me to a surf centre where we borrowed a school board with a small sail. We mounted an extra boom for me under the boom cut-out. So I got the feeling of surfing pretty fast, and was sold. We spent some time together on the same board, and later I started surfing alone.
What is it about windsurfing that’s got me hooked? My first planing experience is a thing I will always remember. I felt like I was sailing super fast witch I didn’t. Since that day, I always like to improve on the water. In freestyle there are several numbers of moves to go for and it makes me happy each time I land a new move.I also like racing very much. The thrill in a close race is fantastic.
Biggest achievement to date: World champion in Formula in Youth 2011. World champion in Slalom in Junior 2008. Many times Danish Champion in all disciplines.
Favourite Windsurfing Spot: The wave spot in Denmark called “Middles”. We also call it The Cold Hawaii. There are perfect port tack conditions for wave riding and jumping. I have had some of my best days there during the summertime.
Favourite windsurfing discipline: I am sailing all disciplines. I do that because I think they are all fun, and because I like the variety. I am always looking forward to go on the water. That’s important for me because it’s easier to learn when it’s fun.
Favourite manoeuvres: I like to do the Backloop because it is a simple move. It gives a great feeling and makes me happy each time I do it.
Favourite Windsurfing Moment: Was in a wave heat in Denmark where I did my first Frontloop. Second time I tried in same heat I landed it. It was such a great feeling and I was really proud.
How do I keep fit and healthy? During the winter I go to gym three times a week. Besides that I spend a lot of time on my mountain bike. As soon as the weather gets warm enough for windsurfing I stop in the gym and try to get on the water as much as possible.
Plans for 2011: I will keep on sailing and competing in all different disciplines. I want to get to as many events as possible and keep taking care of my school work in same time. I also want to compete in a few more PWA-events in slalom.
