I am Alex Hulsberg from Siegen and live with my family on Fuerteventura since 2006. I love the sea and am very close to nature. I would call myself a real Waterman. Ever since I was a little boy I have loved swimming, which I did professionally afterwards. My father already put the water sport into my cradle and so he brought me at the tender age of 5 years to windsurfing and bodyboarding. My favourite book was ``The life of Robby Naish``As a young rebel I wanted to try new things, bought a shortboard - The classic :-) After 2 weeks of saltwater swallowing and lots of wipeouts, I surfed my first wave. I will never forget this feeling.
From then on I made my way to the North Sea almost every weekend, in wind, weather and cold conditions, to quench my thirst for waves.
Every year I take part in the SUP long distance race on Fuerte.
Since 2010 I run the Aloha Surf Academy Fuerteventura with my wife Sophie. We can justifiably call ourselves the best surf school in Fuerteventura. Besides the surf courses we also organize beach clean ups and a guided tour through my permaculture garden is a must.
I have been committed to environmental protection for years and try to make my contribution with my knowledge of permaculture and upcycling projects. I am happy to have found with Surfganic a partner who shares my passion as a Waterman and environmentalist.
I am proud to incorporate my expertise and the Hawaiian vibes as surfers and environmentalists into the Surfganic surfboards.
A little tip from me: Don't take the whole thing so seriously and you'll surf much better. :-)
Eat green, surf green and have fun....
