THE LOWDOWN 

My passion for windsurfing started after seeing the “King of the Caribbean” Event on Bonaire in 2002. My parents rented me a board and a 2.1 sail and I was gone with the wind, ever since I enjoyed my time on the water.

I learned very fast, and after 4 months of practice, I competed in my first windsurf competition.
I practised the latest freestyle moves ( Spock 540, Grubby, Flaka, Gehko, Flakka, the forward loop and a lot more) as often as my parents could bring me to Sorobon ( the most beautiful windsurf place in the world – warm shallow water with an (almost) always blowing 15 – 25 knots of wind).

Nowadays I still train as much as possible, travel to new places to gain new experiences and meet friends with the same passion !! Windsurfing is my life …

I thank my parents, sister Chanel, Grandparents and of course my Sponsors for making my dream come true.

Windsurfing gives me a kick, adrenaline and a sense of the ultimate freedom !
