Date of Birth:
Lido di Capoliveri, Elba Island
Slalom and Foil
I come from a real Slalom family. Windsurfing runs in my blood. My mum in mid ’80 came to Elba Island in Tuscany for holidays and fell in love with my father and wind- surfing. Being honest I don’t know what happend first and which love was deeper. Couple of years later my mum was planing on her slalom board pretty pregnant. I was born in Hamburg, Germany but grew up in Elba - my small paradise. My dad was a windsurf instructor, later as well my mother. She was teaching from a boat with me as a baby on board. I started windsurfing a the age of 5. I just took a board, sail and went windsurfing - turned all the theory I learned on the boat into practice. From that day I knew what I want to do in my life. I spent every day, hours long cruising around. From 2015 professional windsurfing became my job, biggest passion and love.
