Discipline: Windsurf
Country: Spain / Netherlands

After I got planning 1 time that was it I was hooked for life.

I am windsurfer from Holland born 1979 just like the Brunotti brand, I grew up skateboarding, snowboarding from age 4 and when my friends started to windsurf I tried it as well at age 12. After I got planning 1 time that was it I was hooked for life. I started competing in the Dutch national tour in all disciplines and after a couple off years I won the nationals in all disciplines and started my international adventure. At age 15 I did my 1st Speed world championship were I finished top 10 in the men’s division.


After many years on PWA world tour doing all disciples (Wave, Freestyle and Racing) I decided to concentrate on 1 discipline, Slalom. This is the Racing discipline in the PWA world tour and next to that I enjoy my GPS speed windsurfing and hitting the waves when the conditions are good on both windsurf and surfboard.


I currently live in Tarifa, Spain where I live with My wife and my little daughter. I train here and work on the development for my sail sponsor as well as chase the good conditions we get around here in winter and summer.


This year I will be competing at all the slalom competitions in the PWA world tour again and go around europe/ world to windsurf and promote the sport I love . I will Also Travel to some off the best places where I will try to get some nice clips and pictures for everyone to enjoy
