FINDING NEW MEANING THROUGH SURFING — How a professional World Cup skier started a new life at our camp in Sri Lanka
When Kristina Riis-Johannessen ended her career as a professional ski racer for the Norwegian national team, she knew that she had to find something else that could give her a sense of purpose and a new lifestyle to immerse herself in. She had won the gold medal in the 2021 World Championships Team Event and was wondering if anything could ever compete with that. But she took a leap of faith and moved to the other side of the world to join our team in Sri Lanka. It wasn’t a race anymore – it was all about the journey – and the prize was freedom. We sat down to have a chat with her about her new life.
