Q&A

HOBBIES

windurfsurfing, climbing, music, snowboarding , having fun with friends

BEST DAY IN MY LIFE

Till now: winning a Wildcard for the “Prince of the Lake”. Becoming top ten in one of the elliminations during my first year in the PWA at PWA Fuerteventura 2008′. But my best days still yet to come !

BEST DAY POSSIBLE

Starting with a luxurious breakfast.
Having clean, glassy waves, wind and flatwater, nailing new moves.
After that, a big dinner with my best friends and family, watching all the pictures and videos from that day, and having a lot of fun.

BEST 'VACATION

Probably Kos in Greece, Bretagne in France and Makkum in Holland

FAVOURITE MUSIC

I like all kinds of music, from Creed to Michael Jackson, from Classic to House to Electro. Actually everything except country and “smartlappen”!

FAVOURITE SPOT(S)

Grevelingen, Maasvlakte and Makkum in Holland, Fisherman’s Hut, Aruba

PREFERED JP BIG BOARD(S)

PREFERED JP SMALL BOARD(S)

PERSONAL 'MADNESS' & 'OBSESSIONS'

When it’s windy I’m really having a hard time concentrating on other things than windsurfing! I was getting crazy the times I had to go school when it was windy!
When I learn something new I’m getting more stoked of learning new things.  BSESSIONS’

INSPIRED BY

Ricardo Campello, he was the first  young guy who really showed, that there are no limits in windsurfing and particular freestyle windsurfing inventing a lot of new moves and beating the old guys.
