It was Julika’s inborn love of the ocean, nature and sports that led her, in 2015, to create SaltyWay. Born and raised in Kiel, Germany by the ocean, Julika has had a longstanding relationship with the sea. In her late teens Kiel became her base between extended trips to Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Morocco and Europe until 2008. Learning from her own mistakes, taking on board others advice, studying Sport Science in Kiel, teaching sport in Gran Canaria, and teaching surf for many years across Europe has made her into the awesome surf teacher she is today. In recent years Portugal has replaced Kiel as her new home and base and where she enjoys life to the fullest; surfing (short boarding, long boarding and body surfing), climbing, skating, horse riding and generally sharing the love for life with friends outside!
