My sail number is POL-1111 and of course Robby Naish was the inspiration for that. I still remember watching his R.I.P. movie as a kid for the first time blown away by what can be done on the water windsurfing. Wave sailing was then completely surreal to me, but I knew one day I wanted to try.
When I got to go to the Baltic sea in the summer and tried windsurfing for the first time, you could not make me leave the water... These days we only came in to watch R.I.P. one more time and have a hot tea! As I was sailing in the rain at Hel Peninsula, on a slippery school-rental board for hours on end until my hands bled (no harness at this stage!) I imagined I am Robby and I'm sailing around my "own private islands" at Kailua haha..
Looking back it's crazy how much influence Robby have had on me getting into windsurfing and wave-riding,
so I am really stoked to be welcomed to the
Naish Team this year.
M Y S T I C BOARDING is so much more than a brand and quality water gear. To me it’s the story and the people behind it. They signed me up when I was on the wheelchair and not really sure I’ll even walk properly again. They read my story and decided to fully support my comeback on the water because breaking boundaries and pushing through hard times is at the core of what they stand for. They walked the walk, believed in me and gave me the hope I so much needed at the time. It has been a hell of a ride so far and I can’t imagine finding a better bunch of people and better gear! I love everything from bikinis to wetsuits. Check out all the awesome gear here:
I love GOPRO Cameras! They get better and better every year. I have used them for windsurfing, snowboarding, motoX you name it, and got some incredible footage over the years.
I use it to learn moves and basically hardly ever go out without GoPro attached to my sail these days!
GoPro Hero 7 Black is incredibly smooth and with the touch screen allows you to review the footage straight away so you can use it as a "normal" (water proof, shock proof, 4K quality) camera
anywhere you go.

I'm using the AL360 E3 CARBON EXTRA SLIM boom which is super light and also the stiffest you will find on the market.
The carbon SLIM boom is a monocoque 100% full carbon unique piece. The boom is manufactured completely of carbon fiber unidirectional HM (high modulus), thanks to which it was possible to reduce the diameter of the tubes of the boom to 25mm, retaining the rigidity and strength very high, combined with ergonomic curve and section oval tubes characteristic of the AL360's carbon booms, that makes it even more comfortable handle.
