Born in the small town Aurich in the northwest of Germany, Klaas grew up not far from the sea ever since he was a child. After high school diploma, he moved to the north sea island Norderney to do his year of civilian service before entering the University of Kiel in 2000, which was also the year of his first PWA Windsurfing Worldcup. In the winter of 2007/2008 Klaas finished University with an M.A. degree in sports science, since then he’s partly living in Hamburg and partly around the globe in search for wind and waves as a professional windsurfer and SUP soul rider. For several years now Klaas leads the R&D of our Windsurfing Wave range and is also very involved in our marketing department in both, Windsurfing and SUP. He's been on Fanatic Boards ever since he started windsurfing back in 1992!
