Biography

1st PWA event entered Fuerteventura Freestyle 2013

I have been windsurfing since young and always had a passion for freestyle, I was inspired when my family and I went on a trip to Bonaire. I got to see the top level of freestyle first hand, watching Kiri, Tonky, Taty and all the other Bonaire locals. My first proper freestyle event was the 2010 IFCA Pro Kids on Bonaire where I placed 2nd behind Amado Vrieswijk in the Under 15 category. This is when I decided I wanted to push my level in freestyle and try and compete in more competitions. I then started to windsurf and compete more and more in the UK and met the other freestylers from around England.

Windsurfing Ambitions: My ambition is to keep enjoying the sport as much as I do for the rest of my life and to try and be able to travel and compete with windsurfing as my career . I now want to grow into the PWA tour and push my level as high as I can, the level is getting higher and higher every year and this motivates me to push myself to the top. This year I have spent the winter preparing for 2018 on tour with big goals in mind. I now want to win some high level heats and showcase what I feel I can do. In the next years I hope to push myself towards a few waves competitions as well.
