When did you first get exposed to Kiteboarding and what made you to try it?
In 2002 I was windsurfing on my home spot and a kiteboarder jumped over me, from that moment I knew I want to learn! When that happened I started to save money for a lesson and after my first lesson I was addicted.
How do you describe your riding style?
I would describe my riding style as wakestyle with a lot of speed and fluent movements.
We heard you just got back from Brazil. What was the experience like?
It was my second time that I visited Brazil and again I was in Cumbuco. The sea of Cumbuco is not that great, but nice to make a downwinder to the Cauípe lagoon. The lagoon is a great spot to train, perfect flat water and a steady wind, mostly around 20 knots. Again I really enjoyed my stay, but if you really want to feel my experience than you should watch my video from Brazil 'Release Yourself'.
What are your plans for the 2009 season, any competitions?
My plans for 2009 are to promote my sponsors, participate at the most important national events and some KPWT steps.
Where is your home spot and how is the kiteboard scene in Holland?
My home spot is in the north of Holland, it is called Workum. It is a flat/choppy water spot with a big shallow part, behind the sandbar
it is getting deeper and choppier. During the kite season it is pretty crowded on Workum, on a windy weekend day you will find around
75 kiteboarders. The kiteboard scene is pretty big in Holland and the level is getting higher and higher every year!
