Just an 19 year old girl from Holland who grew up in the South of Holland, travels the world and does what she loves the most; wakeboarding!
I started wakeboarding when I was 10 years of age and from the very first moment when I was in touch with the sport I knew I was addicted. It?s really crazy how much my life has changed the past few years. I went from a horse-riding girl to a pro-wakeboarder.
I won my very first European title in 2011 in the Girls division. One year later in 2012 I won my first World title! In 2014 at an age of 17 and as the youngest rider in the Pro-women category I took home gold at the World Championships in Norway, my biggest dream became reality!
Because I couldn?t get enough of the sport I also began riding behind the boat. The sound of the motor, that feeling when you hit the wake and the people cheering in the boat when you stick a new trick, these things are indescribable! In my second year of riding boat I became the first wakeboarder in the world who got first in both cable and boat divisions at the world championships!
During this world championship back in 2015, I have suffered a major shoulder injury. At this moment I?m still recovering and getting ready for 2017?s World Games in Poland!
