Sylvi Bódi

I’m Sylvi Bódi, a born globe-trotter, who has travelled the world extensively. If you ask Hungarians, they will tell you that I am a celebrity, the Queen of Hungary Teenager in 1995 and Miss Hungary runner up in 1998, the Playmate of the year in 2002. They might continue with how often I’m featured on the

cover of different glossy magazines (FHM, CKM, Playboy in Hungary and abroad), and on TV shows as a participant or star guest.

However, I would rather tell you about my craze for adventure and excitement. You show me an adrenaline-pumping experience and I will immediately jump at the opportunity. May it bungee jumping, jet skis, car racing, wakeboarding, kite surfing… but surfing is my love, my absolute favourite. I am not only proud of the amazing success I achieved in my modelling career, but I also feel very special – born to a landlocked country – because I am the only Hungarian to have ridden Teahupoo in Tahiti, one of the most dangerous waves on our beautiful planet. As you can imagine, I also love travelling a lot… to wonderful places just to experience the local vibe and become mighty and small under the forces of nature… water… that is.

I could go on and on about my excitement for surfing, but instead, why don’t sign up and meet us in person? I would love to show you some tricks and have amazing fun together!

Janni Hönscheid

My name is Janni and I was born in 1990 on the Island of Sylt, Germany. My dad was a professional windsurfer back in the day, won several world competitions and together with my mum and my two older sisters they travelled the world. They lived a long time in Hawaii, yet on their travels they came across

the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura, and they fell in love with the place.

With my whole family being into surfing, I spend all my childhood on the beach and when I was two years old I could already swim perfectly. I caught my first ever wave at the age of 9. When I was 14 I got my first sponsor and started modeling for several surfing brands.

Eventually I also competed along my way, and currently I’m Germany’s number 1 surfer.  One of my most significant modeling jobs has been the cover for the German Playboy Magazin / August 2014, which was, again, something completely different, and a great experience that lead to a lot of great new events.

As I like to enjoy the ocean every day, my quiver also includes a classic old single fin longboard to have fun when waves are smaller, a SUP board to be able to explore places when it’s flat and even a mermaid tail to be able to keep the flow underwater too :)
