I started windsurfing in 1980 at Lake Garda and switched over to kiteboarding in 2003.
Shortly after I started with kitesurfing I wanted to bring over my enthousiasm of this great sport to others and became a kitesurfinstructor. Beside running the kiteschool I also worked as a teacher Watersportindustrie at ROC Friese Poort in Sneek… but now all I’m doing is Kitesurfing, strapless directional wave, Kite- and Wing foiling.
Since 2021 I’m also in the international VDWS Trainer team to train new upcomming instructors.

I learned to kite in October 2016.
2 years later I completed the kitesurf instructor course and since then I have been trying to inspire other people for this great sport so that they can experience the ultimate feeling of freedom as well.
