Sebastian Steudtner grew up in Nuremberg, Germany, and discovered his passion for the water at an early stage. His dream of a free, independent life according to his own rules led him to Hawaii, where he got to know big wave surfing. In the bay of Nazaré, he surfed the biggest wave of 2015, over 21 metres high, and won the XXL Biggest Wave Award for the second time. With his “anything is possible” mentality, Sebastian Steudtner not only inspires those who love sports but also motivates others to courageously follow their dreams. Steudtner has pursued his passion for great waves and water on a professional level. This includes SUP surfing (stand-up paddle), windsurfing and hydrofoil surfing.
