Water is my element and I live for all sports that include surf and wind. I grew up in a windsurfing family in Slovakia and fell in love with it at a young age. The first time I paddled out on a surfboard was during a summer snowboard camp on the Oregon coast, it was cold but so much fun. Since then I’ve surfed, kitesurfed or windsurfed in New Zealand, Indonesia, Croatia, Maui, Egypt, Hood River and the Kananaskis River (totally pitted!).
After moving to Calgary in 2000, I competed in snowboard racing and got to learn a lot about fitness and nutrition. I acquired my professional accounting designation and worked in the oil and gas industry for 8 years, before I decided to become a stay-at-home mom and start my own business. I believe in a happy mind, body and soul and practice meditation and Reiki. Balance in your life and balance on the board. I love this surf-inspired workout where you get to be on the board in class and work the same muscles as when you are out there.
Raising my two awesome kids Uma and Rio to be my surf buddies. I design Honubelle swimwear and run the business. I check WindAlert or the river flow times about twice a day and share this beautiful life with my husband Everett.
