Malou Hey (22) from Zaandam (Holland) may call herself a real Boardchick. Snowboarding, Surfing, Skateboarding, Longboarding/cruising, Wakeboarden, Stand up peddle surfing, Indo Boarden… is there anything she doesn’t do that involves a board? Let’s ask!
Evey: Haai Malou! That’s a bunch of boardsports! So how did you first get into touch with boardsports?
I took the initiative myself, I did not grow up with sports. I started skateboarding and soccer and I also liked wakeboarding. By meeting people with these sports, I also tried other boardsports!
Evey: Wauw, sounds so cool. I guess you’re never afraid then?
When I travelled by myself in Australia I was flushed once by a far too big wave. I almost couldn’t get out. That was a bit scary because you are alone.
Evey: Scary indeed. Well let’s start with the things you LIKE?
The freedom you feel when you’re on a board, it’s you and you board and no one else. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the snow, the road or the water.
Evey: How often do you practice?
When the water is warm again, we go at least 1-2 times a week somewhere in Holland. My longboard will be replaced in the summer with my bike and snowboarding is always on top of the list, we never cancel that!
Evey: How do you stay fit?
I play soccer 2-3 times a week and i’m a runner! Last year I attended the “Dam to Dam loop”. And we are vegetarians so we eat a lot of vegetables!
Evey: What’s your favourite destination for boardsports and which one is one your travelwishlist?
As long if there’s snow, waves or a plane road, I am a happy and satisfied human. My dream is to celebrate my honeymoon from our watervilla at the Maldives and glide into the water with your board.
Evey: Sounds fantastic! What do you do besides boardsports?
I work as a Online Campaign Manager in Amsterdam, play soccer, run love all sports as long there is a challenge in it and I am a enormous fan of music, especially reggae! And it is my dream to make a program about travel and extreme/board sports!
Evey: What are your plans for the summer
