Since I won my first skateboard as a child in a draw in the village butcher’s shop, I prefer to move sideways. Because the passion for skateboarding led me directly into the snowboard ingenuity and after many magical moments in the mountains the surfboard was just a question of time. In addition to the sporting challenge, I particularly appreciate the knowledge of cultures, traditions, and people that travel to surf destinations entails. I would like to share this fascination with our customers so that they too can experience the magic of surfing. From the village butchery to the most remote places in the world!

From Lucerne via the rails and banks of Biel, Lugano, and Winterthur, I landed in Zurich. For freshly snowy mountain peaks or a skate session in the evening, there simply has to be time. Long-awaited trips to various destinations of the wide world I always plan along with the surf spots. It is with great pleasure that I share my travel expertise with our customers. “Only those who exude the joy of their passion will also encounter the sunshine in everyday life.”

The greatest joy is sharing the good moments in the water with friends and the unforgettable memory of the surf trips that come from surfing. That’s exactly what I want to achieve through my professional engagement in the world of waveup and Sudden Rush Day one, day out. The great attraction can be found in the many different daily topics from the Surf park project,to travel agency to magazine and the blog. Every day reveals something new, comparable to a beach break on the Atlantic coast.

The love of surfing has existed since my first encounter with legend Buttons Kaluhiokalani in Hawaii, but it may never be enough for the victorious participation in the Swiss Surfing Championship.

Nevertheless, I dare to draw some parallels between everyday life and surfing: “I’ve learned life is a lot like surfing. When you get caught in the impact zone, you need to get right back up, because you never know what’s over the next wave. And if you have faith, anything is possible, anything at all.» (Soul Surfer)

The term Napoleon complex is often negatively connoted. The vernacular means “to compensate for a small body size by successes and status symbols visible from the outside”. But I understand it as “creating the small great”. For more than seven years, I have dedicated my time, my passion and all my passion to the construction and further development of our “world”. As the father of vision, as a tireless motivator, as an unconditional optimist and constant driver, I breathe, live and love waveup as well as Sudden Rush.
