What is your most memorable moment in your sports?
In 2011 I did a longboard trip with my husband from Barcelona to Lloret De Mar and back to Barcelona. We longboarded 150 km in total in 3 weeks with each a backpack of 13 kg’s. It was an awesome adventure, met a lot of nice longboarding people. I will never forget it.
For surfing I like clean waves max. 1,5 meter high with a small off shore wind. For longboarding I like smooth asphalt, it don’t like downhill so I prefer rather flat. My favourite is flat sticky asphalt next to the beach so I can check the surfers and waves as well.
I learned longboarding with a loaded Tantien which was perfect but …
What is your diet like?
I try to eat healthy but I love chocolate and other sweets. I’m lucky I can sport every day so I can eat what I want but not too much of course.
What things do you currently do in your training that are key to your success?
I try to longboard as much as possible but if there’s good surf I go surfing off course. Surfing helps me with my longboarding and also the other way around. We also practice other board sports like wakeboarding, snowboarding and now we just started slack lining. It helps me to keep my balance when I’m dancing on my longboard and to have a strong body. I also go running to train my lungs and heart rate, because otherwise you can’t longboard longer than 30 minutes.
