Well, the biggest members of my team, that deserve the most credits, I have to say: my parents
Mum and Dad looked at me, they saw something worth believing in, long before I believed in myself
Taking care of me everywhere, not complaining about the sand in the house or car, standing on the beach even in 0 degrees, launching kites, pulling up the pants to get me out of the water, untangling lines, chasing wind, helping me finding new kite adventures, bringing me after school to the beach, soccer, or anywhere we had to go for a kite session, pumping my kite, holding me on the beach or catching me, wiping the tears out of my eyes and telling me just to try one more time! Motivating me always: coming home with a dry kite? Not an option. (than I didn`t try anything new). Making it possible for me to go to my first international competition! And if I even thought about giving up, because it never worked out and I will never learn it…. they always made me smile and going back to the beach to practice and try one more time. Hours and hours we spend on the beach…. … for me and the kitesurfing!
Besides my parents, the dog is also one of the team members, catching my board out of the water and a big support on the beach!
F-One and Manera, two of my team members supporting my kiteboarding career, two brands which I proudly present while competing and discovering the kiteboarding world in Holland (Benelux) or somewhere else. Since this year, I am flying the F-One Bandit , riding the Trax (girls), the F- One slice and the F-One race foil & Carbon race board. Manera is taking care of the Wetsuit (which I unfortunately need in Holland…), the Harness & my awesome boardbag.
High five to them!

As a passionate kitesurfer I am travelling around in the winter time to compete or train in tropical destinations on and off the water. When staying in Europe I live the ultimate vanlife! Also I can be doing the opposite, travelling to some colder destinations, snowkiting/skiing action in the snow and on top of the mountains! In European summer-time I will be somewhere in Holland chasing the Dutch winds and participating events and competitions. Don’t hesitate to contact me and become my new best friend!
