Why GNC?

The GNC brand is all about quality. Each GNC product undergoes up to 150 manufacturing and quality checks to make sure that the products are able to deliver optimal benefits. I can use a product, e.g. the endurance booster and have enough energy for the rest of the day. Their products also help me to recover after a long day of surfing, which puts quite a strain on my body.

What does Live Well mean to you?

Living a healthy lifestyle – it means eating healthy, training and enjoying what you do every day.

How much time per day do you spend on training?

I spend about 2-3 sessions per day on surfing, that’s 1.5 hours per session.

I also spend about 1 hour per day in the gym.

What are the three most important things you need in order to be a professional surfer?




What do you do to stay healthy in general?

I live a healthy lifestyle. This means that I consciously make a choice every day to eat healthier options and to train.

What according to you are the biggest challenges in your line of work / sport?

In the world of professional surfing, you have to be versatile, be able to adapt to various conditions and be patient, as the perfect wave won’t always come around.
