Biography:
Born near the Alps in Switzerland my destiny wasn‘t really to get a windsurfing worldchampion. In 1988 I started sailing on a lake back home. That first day on the water I completely fell in love with windsurfing. I immediately dreamt of doing this for a living. But from persuading my parents that this is the right thing for me to do, to earning my living teaching in a windsurfing school, from the first national competitions to the first WC’s, over learning the hard way to handle the media, and finally having to catch up on so much knowledge of the ocean and learning to sail in waves – it‘s been a hard and long way to the top for me. But not for one second I ever regretted my decision. Windsurfing has taught and given me a lot. Most of all my life-motto: “Follow your dreams – nothing is impossible - just do it!
