About Me


surfing the world on couches cause that´s the real way to travel


i´m a combination of three people indeed: me,myself and i
one of them is a passionate party and travel guy that loves meeting lots of new characters, and have some hang loose times.
the other one is a sportsman that likes to challenge his body doing mountainbiking, skate, surf and freeskiing
the last one is a solid student discovering the secrets of life and all of that...


i kind of adapted a buddist view of the world meaning:
dont worry too much, hard times will soon be gone,
be one with yourself, be at peace with the world...
but still be focused and know what your dreams are and live them!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I really live for meeting people and get connected to the whole big world. therefore CS is the best platform imaginable. i love to host people. so everyone: your more than welcome, hit me up! and when i´m on the road myself its chill to have a place to crush.


san francisco, berkeley, sun diego; all of them where great really. havent made any bad choices so far, so i can only judge CS people being more than good, say excellent!!


surf, skate, freeski, mtb, tennis, any sport, really
girls of course attract my attention
