Ruben Versluis

Country: Netherlands

A dream came true when the Brunotti RDP team asked me to join and together create new products for strapless kitesurfing.

My name is Ruben Versluis, I'm 33 years old and currently live in a beach town called Scheveningen.

One of my key characteristics is that I love being active with my body and constantly challenge myself in different sports. During my studies in Human Technology, I ranked in the top 3 of Dutch riders in freestyle bmx. At the same time I got hooked on freestyle windsurfing and switched three years later to kitesurfing, when it got introduced to the world.

What I like about kitesurfing is that elements of it can be also found in other sports, it's very compatible. And it's a sport that is only at its beginning. I like to innovate with strapless kitesurfing, looking for ways to bring freestyle into it with strapless tricks and movements. In order to do so you need to improve your equipment, too.

A dream came true when the Brunotti RDP team asked me to join and together create new products for strapless kitesurfing. The team is open and innovative, they listen to what a rider wants and work professionally with your feedback, implementing it in the product line. With increasing popularity for wave kiting, Brunotti and myself fully focus on developing the best products, the latest trends and ideal ergonomics for usability.

Half the year I spend on Zanzibar and travel. This gives me the opportunity to test the Brunotti products in different environments, improve my level in strapless kitesurfing and manage my local SUP school. When I'm not kitesurfing, I like wave and race supping or take my mountainbike to tracks everywhere around Europe.
