“When I was a kid it was just a game, but it became my passion and a way of living. Through working hard everyday I became a professional windsurfer.
I’m basically a sports fanatic. I’m at the beach every day, if it is not training for windsurfing it is surfing, wave sailing or playing around with any gear. But I can’t live without windsurfing.
I have two missions:
1. Win a World Tittle & brake a Speed World Record
2. Promote windsurfing, motivate girls and kids to get the experience of what we live.

2021 3rd Overall PWA Foil Slalom
2020 1st One Hour Classic

The island of Bol in Croatia was the host of the first PWA slalom world cup of the year. The conditions switched on every day and provided for eight slalom eliminations in both women and men’s divisions.
For the Severne team, all riding on the new Mach 5 and HyperGlide 5 racing sails, it was successful, to say the least.
After years of no large scale events, the 2022 edition of the Defi Wind brought back all of the best elements of the past; lots of wind, lots of action, parties, and the reunion of 1200+ windsurfers from across the globe.
The 2021 PWA world tour season has come to an end, and Amado Vrieswijk can call himself the 2021 freestyle World Champion. Maaike Huvermannn is vice world champion. But that’s not all.
The 2021 version of Defi Wind was yet another success with the completion of “Defi Wind Superstars”. After seven races, Blanca Alabau came out on top. Matteo Iachino finished fourth.
After a long period of absence, the Defi Wind is back in a special edition format from October 29th until November 5th. It won’t be the Defi Wind everyone is used to, but will be run as a “Defi Wind Superstars” where amateur racers can battle for the top positions to be able to go up against the superstars who are already seeded into a main event.
One of the first major competitions of the year was a success for the Severne team. Matteo Iachino took the win at the One Hour Classic in lake Garda and Blanca Alabau took the win in the womens fleet.
