Serfing On The Baltic Sea

Zelenogradsk is a resort town on the coast of the Baltic Sea in the Kaliningrad region. Here, every respecting resident has at least one hydrocosta in the closet, and water sports equipment is stored in the garages. The waves come here with enviable stability, and no one wonders that at any time of the year, there are surfers walking around the city in the hydro bars on the sweat. There's only one who knows that this is the third year in a row of Russia's classic surf championship. Serfers come here from different corners of Russia to catch the Baltic wave.

In April 2016, a Jump shop was opened in Zelenogradsk, which is the only shop in the Kaliningrad oblast where it was possible to purchase supplies for surf and SUP-Serfing. The shop was organized by two lovely girls, Anna Matveyev and Maria Birukova, who promote round-trip surf and develop SUP-Serphine in Kaliningrad the field.
We'll ask them a few questions.

Hey, girls! Tell me a little bit about yourself?

AM: Hey! Born and raised me in Moscow, where I learned a lot (3 higher education) and worked productively in solid companies. Many travelled around the world and visited more than 30 countries by 30 years. When I first came to Zelenogradsk in 2014, I realized that I wanted to live in this beautiful city in the shores of the Baltic Sea and that I could fully realize myself and my dreams.

MB: I'm a native resident of Zelenogradska, aboriginal. I've been in music since I was a kid, walking to the Sambo section, even participating in a competition and doing some places. I've always tried myself in different fields of activity, but everything has come to the point that since I'm free of nature, it's hard for me to find a proper job to plan my own day, to be independent, not subject to generally accepted rules. I'm the mother of a 11-year-old daughter. By the way, she's on a bodibord, and she's doing SUP-Serfing, because she really loves the sea and swims much better than me. By the way, I'm not very good at swimming at sea all my life. A sea without a surf board for me is scary!
