Grab your gear and get ready for an epic weekend.

Happy to be back in Workum for the Hooked event in Workum.

I'll be teaching some masterclasses in case the wind picks up. Drop me a message if you're interested!
In case the wind doesn't pick up, it's also the perfect place to enjoy good vibes with awesome music!

Want to know where I am in the world or what I am up to? This is the page you want to follow.
I started kiteboarding in 2007, and was hooked as soon as I had the kite in my hand.
After 2 years of kiting I started teaching as a kitesurf instructor at Kitemobile in the north of the Netherlands. I was there every summer, to teach and of course to have fun on the water. In my third year of kitesurfing I finished high school, and got 5th place in the Dutch championships, after this I decided to go traveling and dedicate my life to kiteboarding.
I went to a few places in the world to teach kitesurfing and support my passion. After winning the Redbull boven N.A.P. in 2012 I went to Capetown for the Redbull King of the Air. I managed to get a podium in this event and from that moment my professional career took off.

At the moment I am traveling the world to produce video and photo content that you will see on this page.
