ABOUT MARYH

What was one of the best moments on your wakeboard?

I can’t pick up one moment! It’s impossible. I really feel like wakeboarding brings a lot of awesome and unforgettable moments. It can be landing new tricks, trying a setup that scares you, having fun on the water with friends or enjoying a heavy rain session in March with a 9 degrees water only because it’s the first one of the year. Wakeboarding brings me so many precious moments which I’m really grateful.

What lessons has wakeboarding taught you?

The best lesson I’ve ever had in wakeboarding is actually coming from wakeskating.

I think most of the people know that you can easily be desperate trying and trying and trying to get a new trick. But, can you have the smallest idea of how many tries and commitment took a kick flip on the water? And then, landing it every lap perfectly? That’s what I mean = never give up. Stand up one more time and give it a new try. Cause never try, never know.

Also, you gotta give the most to the things you love to do and enjoy them 200%. I feel so lucky to be able to ride whenever I want. Use my body to make things is my way of living. Whether it is wakeboarding, surfing, climbing or even walking. Life is so unpredictable.

And 3 words that go really well together: just have fun.

What does it mean to ride for LF?

Liquid Force was the first wakeboard brand I knew in my life, the first gear I bought and the first good feeling on the water I can remember. My path brought me a lot of different experiences until today. And somehow, LF decided to give me this opportunity to join their family. It looks like a dream I could never imagine before. Like an evidence. I feel more than lucky and so excited to be involved in the future of wakeboarding alongside LF.

Who or what inspires you?

You should have seen my face when I first met Anna Nikstad: CWC Feb 2016. She was absolutely boosting on everything she was touching on this cablepark.

But there are many things that can inspire you actually. For example, seeing how far girls are pushing female wakeboarding nowadays is absolutely inspiring. It can also be the smile on the face of a beginner doing a full lap for the first time! Or realize how one rider can have a different way to read a set up, build a new obstacle or create a winch spot.

What do you think you are doing too much of or too little of because of wakeboarding?

This year has been my first 100% fully dedicated to wakeboarding. And obviously this way of living made me travel a lot! I had the chance to go to 7 different countries, and sometimes twice at the same place, which means I spent way too much time in airports. I went to wonderful destinations but the only thing I did was to go around in circles! I spent a lot of time sleeping in my trusty tent instead of being home and celebrating birthdays and weddings. I also forgot what the winter season is and what it’s like to enjoy snowboarding more than twice a year.

But trust me, this is totally worth it!!!
