What are your plans for the next year?

Entering the PWA, improving on my startegic and tactic skills,  having a lot off fun

When did you realize windsurfing would become your life?

The first time I stept on a windsurf board I didn’t like it. I fell over and over again, but when I first got planing then I really started to like it. The experience of my first competition, the trill of sailing in the middle of the fleet to the jibe, I was stoked.

What something outside of windsurfing are you interested in?

I really like snowboarding and playing guitar, too.

What's the best thing about your lifestyle/sport?

The feeling that I get when I step on a windsurfboard. The freedom of wind and water.

What does it mean to you to be a JP team rider?

Being part of team is awesome, the best board brand with great stye and performance. I’m just a youngster who may sail the best stuff – that’s a kick

What do you want more than anything?

To become a professional windsurfer winning the PWA World Championships. Seeing the whole world, meeting all kind of people, enjoying wind, water and sun

Describe your best water experience:

The first time planing through a jibe.
