Why do I surf? Three years ago I went to see an ISA world’s Junior and saw how people witnessed really good surfing from surfers my own age. For a second I imagined myself surfing. After that I went back home and decided to start surfing. Now I can say I surf because I feel free and happy in the water and it simultaneously amuses me !!!
Goals in surfing? To surf at a competitive level while representing my country and my sponsors.
