At the age of two Benni stood on a surfboard for the first time. It didn’t take long to recognize his talent for water sports. Five years later he started to show his skills on the SUP (Stand Up Paddling). At the age of nine he started at SUP Wave & Race Events, and with great success. At the age of twelve he took first place at the German Junior SUP Wave Championships in Portugal. Another podium finish in the same year with second place at the Junior Race SUP World Cup in Scharbeutz was not long in coming. He was able to confirm this in the following season. But that wasn’t all, Benni was now just 12 years old when he also competed in the men’s singles. A third place at the German SUP Challenge 2017 (Men) and a sixth place at the German SUP Wave Championships (Men) in Portugal underline his talent. One of his highlights was his inclusion in the WM-Team Germany for China 2018.
