Switch: Ski to surf

During her year abroad in Australia, she had first set foot on a surfboard. Since then, she has dedicated her life handling studies, work and surfing.

5 years to the top

After just half a year of practice, she started in her first contest. For the last five years, Valeska Schneider has steadily improved her skills and finally in 2017, she crowned this effort by winning the German Longboard Championship.

Dicovering waves

On her quest for waves, Valeska went to the Sylt Open to try the local conditions for the first time in her career. In January 2018, she is going to compete in the ISA World Longboard Surfing Championships in China.
