Want to know where I am in the world or what I am up to? This is the page you want to follow. 06/01/1993 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.
