What do you love the most about surf­ing? Salt­wa­ter washes away both dirt and makeup and shows your real face and per­son­al­ity. What’s the one thing you can­not live with­out? Hon­estly speak­ing there are lots of things that I can’t live with­out. I don’t want to lie and say I’m free of ad­dic­tions! But if choos­ing one that is re­ally im­por­tant, it would def­i­nitely be si­lence. I am very sen­si­tive to sounds around me and ev­ery day I need a quiet place and time to be bal­anced and re­laxed.

Favourite food to eat af­ter a day of surf­ing?

I’m veg­e­tar­ian, so af­ter surf­ing or any other sport I try to eat more protein meals and prod­ucts. Fresh co­conut af­ter a surf ses­sion is a must – it’s both hy­dra­tion and a snack. I’m a huge fan of lentils, Rus­sian tvorog (like cot­tage cheese, but very spe­cial) and falafels.

Where next on your surf trip ad­ven­ture list?

My next surf trip ad­ven­ture will be to Java, here in In­done­sia. There is one break in East Java that has a per­fect long­board wave, with amaz­ing lo­cal surfers. I want to pack a va­ri­ety of boards in the van and go on a road trip with my girls, stop­ping at some un­known breaks, vol­ca­noes and even some cities.
