My name is Naumova Ksenia, I’m 26. I was born and I live in Moscow, Russia. Watersports (such as wakesurfing, wakeboarding and waterskiing.) are very popular in Russia.
I began my sport career with water skiing. I was 12 and I thought this sport was the best in the world! And I decided, I wanted to do it professionally. After 3 years of persistent training, I began participating in competitions - Russian and international. That was a good experience for me and I won a lot of championships. Unfortunately, in several years I had to finish water skiing because of the knee trauma.
After recovery, I started wakeboarding. I liked this sport and I achieved good results in it. But in 2013 I accidentally tried wakesurfing and loved it at once. I understood that was the love of my life!
My progress was quick, though I learned everything myself, because, it was a new sport for Russia and finding a coach at that time was not easy. After a while, I felt ready to take part in competitions.
There were a few wakesurfing competitions in Russia that time, so I decided to go straight to European competitions (e.g. I became #1 in France, Surf the Lake contest).
As for today, I took part in many competitions and was in top 3 in most of them.
In 2014 I started wakesurfing coaching and I do it up to now. Introducing people to this sport, giving them knowledge, confidence and a positive energy is my favorite work. After all, the main thing in sport and in life is to enjoy what you're doing!
