Describe your best water experience.
There have been many perfect water experiences and it is hard to choose one. One of the best was sailing at blue lagoon for the first time with a bunch of friends. Another was finding a perfect down-the-line wave with side - side-offshore wind at the adriatic sea and being there all alone with mates.

Who or what inspires you?
I think i get inspired by things that happen around me … it can be someone busting out a sick move or someone just having fun on the water,  on the other side it can be the silence you can find in the mountains or some creative work of others (pics, videos, paintings, …)
