How did you get into SUPing ?
Growing up in Denmark I always had a passion for the water as a surfer. While on a surf trip in Portugal 10 years ago the waves went flat one day and my uncle busted out his SUP board. I thought it was pretty fun just cruising and playing around on the board, but little did I know that SUP would soon become my biggest obsession!
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Music, it keeps me rolling!
What’s in your backpack when traveling?
A pair of headphones, a red bull and an awesome book.
Dumb and Dumber
Top five songs on your latest playlist?
Diabolic, Dance with the dead, Black Feathers, Razz, Good Name, William Onyeabor, Content, Joywave and Enter Sandman, Metallica
Favorite post session beverage?
Ice cold Red Bull
Favorite post session food?
Sushi. Lots of Sushi!
You’re planning your dream trip, where are you going and who’s coming with?
I would go on a viking adventure to Iceland and other cold places on earth that has waves. I was going to invite Kai Lenny, but not sure he is up for the severe cold and brain freezes.
Favorite thing to do when not you’re not SUPing?
I really love mountain biking, but I also just got into kiting (thanks Robby)…there are too many things to choose now!
What, in your opinion, has been your greatest accomplishment?
I feel really proud of the work I put into winning my 4 World Titles, but my favorite accomplishment right now would have to be winning the 2017 Red Bull Heavy Water event. It took everything I had to overcome those crazy waters and 15 foot waves in San Francisco.
What’s your favorite quote or saying?
“With passion as your friend, the world is at your feet.”
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Teleporting. There are so many places I want to go and sometimes I wish I could be more than one place at the same time.
