The daughter of a professional windsurfer, Sonni grew up on the water and is among the most well-rounded SUP racers in the world. A champion longboarder who easily made the transition to stand up paddling, Sonni thrives in challenging conditions and where others may falter and is a perennial favorite in both ocean and flatwater competition. When she is not enjoying the ocean, Sonni spends much of her time painting and is equally as talented with a brush and canvas as she is with a paddle and board. Sonni’s love of the ocean inspires her art and is a transcending theme in her life both on and off the water.
