Q: Where do you call home?

HANNA: I have two homes! My first home is Krakow the most beautiful city in Poland, that’s where I was born. And my second home is Berlin where I was living the biggest part of my life!

Q: How long have you been kitesurfing?

HANNA: I am kitesurfing for 3 years now!

Q: Why did you choose kitesurfing?

HANNA: I was always a big fan of water sports and when I tried kitesurfing I am not sure what it was but somehow it came so easy to me and I learnt it super fast! It was this feeling that I had when I was on the water, the mixture of freedom and happiness I have never experienced before. I knew that this was the thing I want to do!

Q: What’s your best vacation spot?

HANNA: My favorite vacation spot is Rodos where I go every year, it’s an island that belongs to Greece. It has such a crazy beach that has the sea on two sides, which makes it a perfect spot for Kitesurfing and Windsurfing. It’s always windy and all of my friends spent their vacation there too and there is nothing better then doing what you love with your closest friends.

Q: What’s your favourite dessert?

HANNA: BROWWNIEE with hot chocolate sauce inside and an ice-cream scoop on top!!! I believe that this is what heaven tastes like haha

Q: What’s your favourite TV show of all time?

HANNA: SUITS!!

Q: What is your biggest/weirdest fear?

HANNA: OO I am terribly scared of FISH! I know that’s funny as I am always on the water kitesurfing but that’s why I’m on the board and not in the water hehe!

Q: What other hobbies/interests do you enjoy doing?

HANNA: I ski a lot as I live only one hour to the mountains but besides that I basically love and do all water sports from windsurfing, wakeboarding and Sup paddling to recently surfing! And of course I am staying fit by working out in the gym!

Q: What would be your ideal breakfast?

HANNA: ACAI with BANANAS!!!! That’s definitely the best thing ever! I tried it the first time 2 years ago when I was in Brazil as it is a Brazilian fruit and I totally fell in love with it!! It gives so much power for the whole day when you mix with some exotic fruits and muesli!! I JUST LOVE IT!!

Q: What’s the one country you have always wanted to visit?

HANNA: CUBA ! I think Cuba’s history is fascinating and I would love to see life there without Americanization because this place seems more like a movie and not like real world. I also believe that there are amazing secret spots to kite surf.

Q: What’s the best part about your sport?

HANNA: The best part about kitesurfing is that it is a relatively new sport and it has no limits. Riders come up with new tricks, add more turns, more grabs, go higher and so much more while the Kitesurfing brands invent new systems and introduce improvement in the kite gear to make it even easier and more fun! The amazing thing is that everyone can be a part of the development and by everyone using their own creativity can push this sport further!

Q: Do you have a saying or motto that you live your life by?

HANNA: Collect moments not things!

Q: What is it that you like about Wet Leopard Swimwear?

HANNA: I like that the suit is so original and it catches everyone’s attention, it looks great and it’s super functional on the water! I don’t have to worry that it will fall off and i can enjoy my kiting sessions even more!
