THE LOWDOWN 

It’s been a pleasure to make from my passion my work over the past years. Growing up in Belgium I was lucky enough to learn windsurfing from my dad at a young age (7) and have my family support me to make every holiday a windsurfing holiday to follow my passion.

I can’t remember the first time I wanted to learn windsurfing,I can just remember my first time sailing with my dad in Portugal and that I didn’t want to do anything else but windsurfing. I was addicted straight away and built my whole life around it.

I started off with the Freestyle discipline going from Youth Worldchampion in 2009 to PWA Worldchampion in 2015. Since then, I have also dedicated a large amount of my time to the wave sailing discipline.

By moving to Tenerife in 2018 I have been able to dedicate even more time to the water, be it training myself or coaching other people to get better in the sport I love most.
