Sylvi Bodi, originally from Hungary is an accomplished model having donned the covers of Playboy, FHM and many others. In 2010 Sylvi was bitten by the surf bug on her first trip to Bali and quickly excelled given natural talent and physical conditioning. Her skills sharpened quickly as she travelled the globe surfing nonstop in places like Fiji, Hawaii, Maldives, Indonesia, Mexico, Tahiti, France and many others.
Janni Honscheid is an accomplished surfer, motivational speaker, Playboy Playmate and in her own words: “When I finished School I graduated with honors and was class best. I thought about studying psychology and moving to a city.
When I actually looked into it though, the thought of leaving the sea really scared me, I need to surf like I need air to breathe, and growing up on a tiny island I just felt the urge to see the world, see different waves, cultures & people, so -to the disappointment of my teachers- I grabbed my surfboard and decided to study life….
I’ve travelled Australia, lived in Indonesia, been to Tahiti, Morocco, France, Madeira, England, Ireland, the Maldives, California, Portugal, Denmark, the other Canary Islands… and many places more.
Although I see myself more as a free spirit, I’ve also experienced the competitive side of surfing and I’m currently Germany’s top female surfer, check out my results page!
To finance my journeys I work as a model, which I really enjoy and has brought me some interesting jobs in the past, check it out on my “media page“.
