My name is Tanja Ecker, born in 1992 and raised in the southern Black Forest, I have always been very close to nature and sports. That’s why I also studied sports science. Stand-Up Paddling is a passion that has now become a profession. As a professional stand-up paddle athlete I’m part of the German National team and could win already several national and international titles including 8 German National titles and a win of the SUP 11-City Tour in 2022. Besides being an athlete I have also built a career as a successful coach. Since March 2023 I am on the board of the SUP committee of the German Surf Association (DWV) together with Paulina Herpel. My second passion and profession is the photography. You can find out more about this path on Both as an athlete and photographer, I work with different companies, brands and events like SUP 11X, manage the social media channels, am committed to sustainability with Ecoathletes and want to share my enthusiasm and passion for sports and nature with others. I want to help paddlers reaching their individual goals with specific training and finding the right gear. You can find out more about my distribution of 404 and Hippostick for whole Europe here: &

Always open to new things, I tried stand-up paddling in 2013 during my bachelor studies in Munich. After playing handball for almost 10 years, SUP was love at first sight, so to speak. The connection with nature, being outside, for me the sport is the perfect balance and full body workout. Since 2018 I’ve been doing SUP as a competitive sport, still a young sport but growing very fast. I love the versatility of it. You can do it on any type of water in any weather, from flat water to surfing, nothing is impossible. The sport creates a community with athletes from all over the world.

I'm 56 years old and a mother of an 18-year-old, who is totally addicted to waves by surf, wing foil and SUP. Hamburg, Mallorca and Klitmøller/Denmark are my home-places to be. Riding many great and also challenging “waves of life” – with my positive mindset and attitude of "flow living" – giving up is never an option for me.   My surf life started with 16 years - 40 years ago. Being a former Windsurf-addict for 30+ years I'm since 10+ years passionate about paddleboarding in waves. I have participated successfully at many national and international SUP events and I'm triple German Vicechampion SUP Wave.    In 2018 I was part of Team Germany at the ISA SUP Worldchampionships in China. Fun fact: With 51 years old back then I was eldest female participant - you are never to old to go for your dreams! Competing again at this great event being now 56 years is just an honor and the best way for me to celebrate my 40 anniversary of surf life :) I'm deeply grateful for this opportunity.   And as a big “Ocean Lover” I have realized an inspiring heart-project: “BETTY WOULD GO. Ride Waves – Surf Life – Save the Ocean”. If you want to get to know me in a very personal way, watch my film! You will even find an insight on Cold Hawaii and the ISA SUP Worlds in China 2018 in there. For international viewers it's available in English on GAIA.COM since this year.
