How did you get into Kiting, SUP or Windsurfing?  I started windsurfing when I was 11 years old. In the year 2000 I started kitesurfing after I saw Robby Naish kitesurfing in Zandvoort, The Netherlands. He was competing the World Cup Freestyle windsurfing in 1999 and was kitesurfing between his heats. At that time there were no teachers so I taught myself.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without? Waves

What’s in your backpack when traveling?  My Gopro, to take pictures so good memories are preserved and they won’t disappear like a dream.

Favorite Movie? The Safe house, since I saw this movie while I was on a kitesurf trip in Cape Town, South Africa. On a rainy day we went to the cinema and chose a movie, and you know what? The whole movie was taken in the Cape Town area 😊

Top five songs on your latest playlist?    Kaleo – Way Down We Go, Three Doors Down – Krypthonite, The Cranberries – Zombie , Post Malone – Rockstar, Rag’n’Bone Man – Human

Favorite post session beverage? Beer!

Favorite post session food? Fruit, wraps, salads

You’re planning your dream trip, where are you going and who’s coming with?

I hope to surf Jaws in Hawaii once, either with kite or Standup Paddleboard. Also a favorite is Nazare, Portugal which is more closeby. Coming with, my girl Chantal.

Favorite thing to do when not you’re not kiting, SUPing or windsurfing? Freediving 😊 to train for extreme circumstances, exploring the scenery of a country I am visiting and mountainbiking.

What, in your opinion, has been your greatest accomplishment?

Stand-up Paddling 10 meter waves in the South of France.

What’s your favorite quote or saying? A day without laughter is a day wasted (It sounds better in Dutch 😊)

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Being under water for hours.
