Born in Poland, raised in Germany, Maja had always been landlocked. But at the age of 27 she went on an unforgettable surf trip with her friend and she knew right away: surfing was all she ever wanted to do. Frequent surf trips and sabbatical years in Australia, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia followed and would soon be the dominating part of her focus.
When she discovered river surfing in Munich, she was really stoked. Finally she found a way to survive the dry periods in between her surf trips, although her heart will always belong to the ocean. These days you will find her commuting between Munich and Espinho, Portugal, where she established her second home.
