My greatest surf experience:
That was in 2020: Winning the first place at the polish championships, for sure!
Since 2013 I tried showing my talent over an over again but always failed. After many defeats and tears I nearly gave up in 2019. I felt lost and so far away from my goal, even though I became second place in 2019. But this also pushed me to work even harder. When I made it to the finals in 2020, I felt so determined. After finishing the finals, I was so happy with myself and my performance. I was so nervous when they started reading down the names and the placements. And then .... after the minutes felt like hours, they said "Maice Dittrich polish champion of 2020" I couldn't hold back my tears. This title means so much to me because I realized that all the hard work over the years and the patience of my family, friends and partners has paid off!
