Favourite spot?
I love the Vaal River- boat, glassy water, family, friends, sun- cant get better!  

Best thing about your lifestyle as a wakeboarder? I love that I have travelled the world! I have seen so many countries that I wouldn't travel to normally. Its really been amazing. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Definately still wakeboarding! I want to have a holistic centre! It will have my own Body Symmetry studio, a Bikram yoga sutdio, Health bar that only sells ra organic food and a few more! Bliss! 

Other than wakeboarding what is your next best thing? I love exercising- particularly running! And coffee.. ahh.. proper italian coffee snob! 

On a Saturday morning you can find me… if I'm not on the water, I'm hanging out with friends having a delicious brekkie somewhere nice. Love markets!

What’s your superpower? I can make 2 minutes noodles in 1 minute. 

If you found R100 on the floor, what would you do with it? Spoil someone with flowers. 

Did you have a New Year’s resolution for 2009? If so, what was it and how is it going? My new years resolutions don't last longer than a week! I try just livle the best I can everyday! 

What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate, Ice-cream, muffins- actually, FOOD period!

If you could choose any 5 people (over and above your friends of course) to have at your birthday party, who would they be?
1.  Dr Demartini [human behavior specialist- he is mind- blowing]
2.  Channing Tatum
3.  Oprah

4.  Guilliana Rancic

5.  Trevor Noah

My years of retirement will be spent… hopefully enjoying the high life travelling and spending quality time with those I love.

If I had a star on Hollywood Boulevard, it would be right next to celeberties don't do it for me I'm afraid.. 

The thing that makes me is I can have a conversation with a tree- an interesting one too! (:

One thing I would never travel without is my iPad, my hair dryer [bit of a princess], sunglasses [super sensetive eyes].
