Both my parents are windsurfers and my first photo standing on a board was when I was two years old, holding my dad his leg. When I was eight I started with windsurfing, and every summer holiday I was on the water but I was doing lots of other sport as well like gymnastics, swimming, jiu jitsu and acrobatics. After high school I went studying in Amsterdam where I met other windsurfers and I had my first go in the waves. I decided to go on a windsurf trip and went for two months to Jericoacoara in Brazil. That is when I first saw freestyle, and I was hooked straight away. The combination of tricks and windsurfing in one was just amazing!
In 2010 I made my debut at the PWA freestyle and in 2012 I got on the podium for the first time. An incredible feeling. In 2013 I became Vice World Champion. Besides freestyle I also love wave sailing, and the feeling you get from doing a slalom competition is great - so much adrenalin! This year I really got in to Stand Up Paddle as well- I guess I love every board sport in the ocean.
