I grew up in Karby, a small village on the Island of Mors not far from Cold Hawaii. Today I live in Aarhus. I started SUPing about five years ago. I sought an alternative when there wasn't enough wind for kitesurfing which I've been doing for many years.  

What's great about SUP is the versatility of the sport. I SUP in almost all weather conditions and get on the water almost every day. What drives me is the sea, the desire to get in the water. I can not describe it - other than it's a mysterious force affecting me every day. 

For me, SUP took a new and exciting turn when I started competing. Participating in my first Danish Championship was a thrill for me. Since then winning has been a significant part of my motivation. 

I am married and share my passion for SUP and kite surfing with my husband. Recently we bought a plot of land in Klitmøller, where we’ll build a house in the coming winter . So from 2018, Klitmøller will – officially – be our second home.

Discipliner: Technical Race & Sprint Race  

Alder: 34

Bedste resultater: Nr. 2 i fladt vand race, DM 2016, nr. 2 i technical race, nr. 2 i sprint og nr. 3 i SUP-surfing. 

Jeg begyndte at SUP’e for ca. 5 år siden. Jeg søgte et alternativ til at komme på vandet, når der ikke var vind til kitesurfing, som jeg har dyrket i mange år.      

Det fede ved SUP er helt klart alsidigheden. Jeg SUP’er i næsten alle vejrforhold og kommer på vandet næsten hver dag. Det, der driver mig, er havet, lysten til at komme ud på havet. Jeg kan ikke rigtig beskrive det - andet end at det bare trækker i mig hver dag.     

SUP tog en ny og spændende drejning for mig, da jeg begyndte at konkurrere i SUP. Det var stort for mig, da jeg deltog i mit første Danmarksmesterskab.     

Jeg er gift og deler min passion for SUP og kitesurfing med min mand. For ikke så længe siden købte vi en grund i Klitmøller, hvor vi den kommende vinter bygger et hus. Så fra 2018 vil Thy – nu officielt – være vores andet hjem.
