What does it mean to ride for Jetpilot? It means a lot. It's a way of life, it's not only in the water, it's outside. Your mojo comes up when you are dressed by JetPilot in a random life situation!
What are your career highlights? To be honest, I won everything in the small classes since I was a junior, I turned a Pro and I have been always in the Top 5. I had my fast years 2015-2016 where the mechanics killed my tittles and then that accident happened. I was apart from racing for more than 2.5 years, i came back straight to King's Cup but my body wasn't on point yet. I went to fast on recovery. Mistakes on life. Used to comebacks I showed up in 2020 winning my first moto since 2016 after 9 surgeries in my left leg and back. Right now, I'm fully back to racing, taking it way more chill and easy than when winning was a MUST and guess what? I'm faster than ever. Happy boy is a fast boy!
Who or what inspires you? Everyone out there with the susses desire and to be a better version of themselves! That's what’s inspiring me.

What does it mean to ride for Jetpilot? It's a huge deal, I love the quality the clothes, both for on & off the water. If you're a real OG jetski rider, who knows some history, you need a Jetpilot suit on! They've been involved with the sport since the beginning and that really shows.
What are your career highlights? Of course, my World Championship wins, but also all the experiences and awesome people I've met on the way. My racing is a big part of the journey of life and I'm trying to enjoy every moment! Also, my contract signing with Team Abu Dhabi, as the first woman on the racing team, feels great to push limits for women all over the world.
Who or what inspires you? All the hard working and supporting people around me. You are not better then your team, thats for sure! Also, all the struggles and problems that you need to overcome on the way. The struggles itself is not so nice, but when you find the solutions gets me a real dopamine kick and inspires me to keep on going. Nothing is impossible.
Favourite place to ride? I love to be out riding and testing before big races, like in Thailand, Arizona or any World Championship event. Feeling the warm water when I turn and the excitement for the race. All the expectations is there and everything is still up for grabs! Its a whole vibe at those events!

What does it mean to ride for Jetpilot? Jetpilot is the coolest brand there is with their high-quality products and awesome designs. Since we got to know each other they've always got my back and I'm really proud to be a part of their team.
What are your career highlights? 2nd place in 2019 is my best ever result for the Aquabike World Championship. But my first ever Grand Prix victory in Sharjah 2019 is for sure one of the best highlights of my career. After suffering a bad injury at the very same place in Sharjah two years earlier it was such a cool feeling to come back and take the Grand Prix win after a long and tough recovery. Something I never thought would be possible at the time of the injury.
Favourite place to ride? Anywhere as long as there are big waves!
