Disciplines: Distance Race

Best results: Four times silver at the Danish Championships in 2017: long distance, sprint, technical race, flat water racing and Technical Race

About: I grew up in Aarhus and have previously been deeply integrated into the Danish windsurfing community. Since 1999 I’ve been away from water sports. 

I started SUPing in October 2016. Initially, my plan was to start windsurfing again. I became a member of the Northwest Jutland Windsurfing Club. Right after we had a long period with almost no wind and SUP – not windsurf – became an alternative. Before I knew it I was hooked. 

The coolest thing about SUP is the many different challenges and experiences I get. I can SUP in almost all weather conditions. It doesn't matter if there's wind, no wind, waves or no waves - there's always something fun and challenging to do. It gives me the notion of continuously developing my skills and a constant strive for learning more. Socially, the sport is very special to me. Everywhere I go I'm greeted by a smile and a good atmosphere, even during competition.

I'm already almost a SUP addict. Both mentally and physically I'm in better shape than I've been for the last 15 years. Never has training been more fun than after I started SUPing. The biggest moment in my still very short SUP career was to win four times silver at the Danish Championship in 2017. The fact that I was among the best came as a bit of a surprise to me. 

Professionally I design climbing walls and other facilities for play and physical activities. I'm married and have two boys, eight and nine years old. 

I spend as much time as possible together with my family. In 2017, both my husband and both of my boys have been introduced to surfing, SUP and windsurfing. It's a great pleasure to share the sport as a family.

About: Jeg er vokset op i Aarhus og har tidligere været dybt integreret i det danske windsurfing-miljø. Siden 1999 har jeg været væk fra vandsport. 

Jeg startede på SUP i oktober 2016. Det var min plan at starte med windsurfing igen efter 17 års pause. Jeg meldte mig ind i Nordvestjysk Windsurfingklub, hvor det i en vindstille periode blev til SUP og ikke windsurf – og ja, pludselig var jeg hooked. 

Det fedeste ved sporten er de mange forskellige udfordringer og oplevelser, - som de forskellige discipliner i forskellige vejr- og bølgeforhold byder på. Det giver mig følelsen af, altid at være i udvikling med det jeg kan og det gør mig tilmed sulten efter at lære mere. Socialt kan sporten også noget særligt. Der er altid smil på og god stemning, selv på konkurrencedage.

Jeg er allerede nærmest afhængig af SUP som min bedste fitness- og konditionstræner. Jeg er i min bedste form i over 15 år, og aldrig har det været så sjovt at træne!    Det største øjeblik i min endnu meget korte SUP-karriere, var at vinde 4 x DM sølv 2017. Det kom lidt bag på mig, at jeg allerede kunne være med i toppen.    

Jeg er projektdesigner indenfor klatrevægge og andre faciliteter til leg og bevægelse. Jeg er gift og har to drenge på 8 og 9 år. 

Min familie bruger jeg meget tid med. I 2017 er både min mand og begge mine drenge blevet introduceret til surfsporten, - både surf, SUP og windsurf. Det er en kæmpe glæde at kunne dele sporten som familie.
