Alina Shalin - Ambassadors Savage

Alina Shalin






Munich, Germany

Borned and raised in Munich, Alina has always travelled a lot with her family since she is a child. With kitesurfers parents, she has discovered many spots around the world where she learned how to surf and kitesurf. Alina needs action in her life: when she is in Munich, she loves to go for a run or a surfsession at Riverwave before going to business administration classes but at the end of the day, she takes some time for her other passion : dancing. Indeed she loves to share her passion and gives dance classes since she is 16. During European winter, this travellover and wave addict is chasing her dreams following wind and waves around the world.

Originaire de Munich, Alina a toujours beaucoup voyagé en famille depuis sa plus tendre enfance. Avec des parents kite-surfeurs, elle a eu la chance de découvrir de nombreux spots où elle a pu apprendre à surfer et kite-surfer. Alina ne tient pas en place: quand elle est à Munich, elle aime débuter la journée par un footing ou une session surf à la Riverwave avant d’aller étudier; mais à la fin de la journée, elle aime aussi
consacrer du temps à sa seconde passion : la danse. En effet, elle adore partager sa passion et donne des cours de danse depuis qu’elle a 16 ans. Pendant l’hiver, cette globe trotteuse poursuit ses rêves en suivant les vagues et le vent à travers le monde.
