Professional kiteboarder from Norway traveling the world and competing internationally. I started kiting in 2008 and have not looked back since. In the beginning it was just my hobby, but it is now the way I have chosen to live my life. I believe life is better when you follow your passion and work hard towards achieving your dreams.

My goal is to do the PKRA World Tour in 2015 and to become one of the top female freestyle riders in the world.

INTERVIEW 2014.10.17

What are you looking for to accomplish?

I want to accomplish my dream of becoming one of the top female freestyle riders in the world and do the whole PKRA World Tour in 2015. By reaching my own dream I hope to inspire others to go after their dream, dare to follow their own path and live a vibrant life full of meaning and purpose.

What would be your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement would be to inspire others to live a life aligned with their own values. I hope that I can do this by carving my own path, showing that it is possible to live a life doing what you love and what truly makes you happy.

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

Traveling a lot and changing homes.
Having to fit your schedule according to when/where the wind blows.
The need to be in good physical shape. It is easy to get hurt when performing extreme sports, which can set you back for some time.

Technical difficulty of the tricks. Sometimes it’s hard to learn new tricks and you can reach a level where you feel like you’re stagnating.

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

I love learning new things, facing my fears and pushing my limits. Nothing beats the feeling of happiness when you land a new trick you have been thinking about and practicing for ages. I get a feeling of satisfaction when I achieve something I have worked hard for. In addition to that I become very peaceful when I’m out in the water – the ocean soothes my soul!

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

First I do a good warm up, which is essential in order to stay away from injuries. I love listening to music when I ride, because it puts me in a good flow. Normally I start with doing tricks that I know well, followed by practicing new tricks or tricks that I might not always land.

After my session I do stretches, so that my body does not feel sore the day after. That being said, I still believe that the ultimate key to success is riding with good friends and simply just have fun! I usually perform well if I’m in a good mood. I also love to kite with riders of a higher level than myself, so I can have some inspiration!

What are you most nervous about when competing?

I was most nervous in my first competition, because I was so scared of failing. After I went through that, I realized that it really wasn’t that bad even if you did not perform. In the end I started competing to challenge myself and push my comfort zone, and not to prove to somebody else how good I was.

Facing your fears makes you realize that the fear itself is worse than whatever you actually feared. The only way to overcome it is to take action and face it!

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

Hahaha, I don’t believe in fans ;) But if I had any I guess it would be my mom and my dad. Hopefully!

"Malin Amle‏"

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

If you really want something in life, you will find a way. Never give in, never ever give in. Do what you love and make no excuses for how you live your life. The only limitations you have are the ones you give yourself. Life is too important to be taken seriously!

"Malin Amle‏"

What are your future plans?

My nearest future plan is to compete in the PKRA World Tour 2015.

What are your tips for those who begin now?

My tip is pretty much the piece of advice stated above!
