I am born and raised on Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. The passion for windsurfing started when I was 7 years old and saw the 2002 King of the Caribbean-event on Bonaire. My home-island has the perfect location at Sorobon to learn slalom- and freestyle-windsurfing fast.
After my parents rented me a board I was gone with the wind and ever since enjoying every minute on the water wherever on the globe that is.
I competed in IFCA ?slalom and Prokids- freestyle events over the years and entered the PWA in 2011. In 2015 I finished school in "Sports and Movements" and now I can focus myself completely on my windsurf-career. Freestyle is my main-discipline, but I also love the speed in slalom-racing, foiling (the latest hype in windsurfing) and the waves.
I love to sail a bit radical.. the higher the jumps the better. Besides practicing the sport I?m also interested in the development of the equipment. My sport gives me the opportunity to travel to places and meet people/friends with the same passion.
