  “After some amazing years with SIC full of unforgettable victories, good times and great experiences (for which I’m very thankful!), today I’m really happy to be part of the “Tiki Team” with Starboard. This new start is not only about racing, but we also have some really exciting art projects coming along that will make the sport of SUP even more colorful. I’m looking forward to a great season on the blue arrows!”

"Meanwhile Sonni surprised quite a few with her win (though not everybody :-) and has now surely established herself as the world’s best all round paddler. The German, who spends most of the year in the Canary Islands, can hold her own in any conditions: Sonni is a machine in the flat, very quick in and out through the waves, absolutely rips on a surfboard and is now clearly a master of the open ocean bumps."
