Biography

1st PWA event entered - FOIL Costa Brava 2018

): I started windsurfing at the age of 5 and at the age of 9, I started sailing kids' events in Denmark. I loved it from the beginning and I've been very passionate and serious about windsurfing ever since. I've been competing in racing events in Denmark and Europe since 2014, and I'm looking forward to do that with my best friends (and fellow competitors) for many years to come.

Windsurfing Ambitions: I quitted formula last year to focus fully on foiling and slalom. Taking part in the RS:X Convertible Worlds and this year's Costa Brava World Cup further boosted my motivation to become one of those guys I've looked up to since I was a kid. My ultimate goal is to become a full time PWA rider. Besides, I'm working as a windsurfing instructor and hope to give as many people as possible a good experience with windsurfing!
