I'm a 22 year old windsurfer from the south of Holland, proud to be born in one of the most famous surf spots in the Netherlands "Brouwersdam". I still live there and probably will never leave. My dad taught me windsurfing for the first time when I was 4 years of age and never stopped doing it. Since 2011, I?m sailing on the PWA Freestyle world tour. In 2014 I finished my study marketing, communication & event management at the Johan Cruyff College. After my study I?m fully focused on windsurfing.
As my parents own a windsurf school, windsurfing is just something that?s in my blood. I love to be in the water and be surrounded by nature. Chasing strong winds and good waves. Freestyle is a discipline where you have a lot of freedom, show the best tricks, pushing limits and try new things. For me it?s something where I can be myself and do what I love to do. I want to win but I also want to see the world and find the best spots with all my friends and just have a good time on the water, this is also my way to get ready for the season.
I feel really honored to live the surf life I live, to see all these beautiful destinations around the world and chase the wind wherever I go to train for the goals I set for myself in this upcoming year.
