I’m Pelle Burmeister from Hamburg, Germany.  I am 18 years old and attend year 12 at secondary school. I have started surfing at a very young age (about 2 or 3) because my dad and my older brother are keen surfers. We don’t really have waves in Germany, specially not in Hamburg because Hamburg is not located on the coast. So I have to go to Denmark to go surfing. We live a 5 h drive away from some surf spots in Denmark and when the weather forecast looks good for the weekend I drive up to Denmark with my parents and my brother. Because I can't train surfing in the sea on a daily basis, I do my best to get fit and do a lot of workouts and streching when I'm in Germany to keep up with the others. I also love other kinds of sports and play hockey, skate, go swimming. I take every chance I can get to go surfing in my school holidays and I travel to countries with great surf spots all over Europe and even overseas. So far I have been to Denmark, France, Canary Islands, Spain, Portugal, Indonesia, Maroco, Australia, Panama and New Zealand. When I was 12 years old I lived in Australia for half a year with my family and spent a lot of time surfing. There I started to compete in some small local surf competitions. When I came back to Germany I wanted to keep on competing, so I looked for comps in the area. Since then I’m regularly competing in the Danish surf tour.  In 2018 I took part in the German championships for the first time and every year since (exept for the corona year’s). In 2001 I started working as a surf instructor at a surf camp in France and spent all my summer holidays there.

My name is Kai, I'm 12 years old and surfing since I'm 5. I live on Tenerife, Canary Islands, where I started surfing in El Médano, the small town where I live with my parents and my brother. My father is a windsurfers, my brother also surfs and windsurfs, which is why I've always been around waves and beaches since I was very small. My favorite toy actually was a Playmobile surfer, who I was shredding my bed sheets with every night before sleeping :) There are a lot of different waves on the island, which is perfect for training different types of conditions. I also love to travell to France or Portugal, the waves there are quite different from the pointbeakes at home, but I love to surf beachbreaks, too.
