KiteSista Meets: Annelous Lammerts

Whilst in Morocco last month we met a lovely girl over dinner the first night we arrived. Neither of us knew each other but she was just one of those people who is instantly warm, friendly and gives you a really positive feeling when talking to them.

So, as is customary, before we went to bed we asked her what her name was, to which she replied Annelous.

To those of you who were not as quick as us at putting two and two together, Annelous Lammerts is one of the top female riders on the PKRA circuit and one of only a very small group able at the moment to challenge the dominance of Gisela, Bruna and Karolina, yet as we spent the next 12 days with her throughout the PKRA stage in Dakhla we learn’t that she is also a shining example of character in our sport. Hard working, humble and happy.

So, now it is our great pleasure to introduce you to Annelous Lammerts.

KSm: Hi Annelous, thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Can you tell our readers a little bit more about you? 

Annelous: I’m 20 years old and living in the south-west of The Netherlands. My homespot is the Brouwersdam where I started kiteboarding 4 years ago. When I’m at home I’m working in the kiteshop Natural High where I started working 3 years ago. The past 3 winters I have been travelling to warm kite destinations and in summer I work and travel around for the competitions….

PKRA MAROCCO

The second tourstop was at Dakhla, Marocco. I went a week before the event to train and get used to the conditions. I had a great stay at the Spirit camp. The Spirit camp is definitely the best place to stay, thanks to a perfect lagoon with flat water right in front of the camp. Check dakhlaspirit.com !

The conditions during the competition were hard, the strong and gusty wind made all the riders compete on their small kites. In the end I was really happy with my 5th place. Next stop is PKRA Leucate!

PKRA PANAMA

The season started early this year, and how?! I’m super happy that I managed to get the 4th place at the world cup in Panama, and receive the best newcomers award. What an amazing way to start the season!

RED FLAG UP

Today is my last day in Brazil.. I had an amazing time with great people. Although I have been training on the lagoon most of the days, I also spend some time on the sea to get better in chop. Check out my new video getting ready for my next ‘red flag up’. Hope you enjoy it and sharing is caring ;) .

TOP 10 AT WORLDCUP!!

After a week without wind at the Kitesurf Tour Europe we went straight to Sankt Peter-Ording for the PKRA Worldtour. We had four great days with wind, perfect to get used to conditions we would get during the competition.


By Reinout Smith

The event in SPO is the biggest PKRA event of the year and the level was unbelievable high. There where 81 guys and 20 girls in the freestyle fighting for only a few spots in the main event. I had a really good heat in the trials and moved straight into the mainevent, I couldn’t be more happy.

Luckily we had enough wind to finish the single and double elimination and I ended up 7th. I’m really happy with this result at my first Worldcup. It was a great experience and hopefully I can do more stops next year!

WE NEED WIND

Unfortunately no wind at the second stop of the Kitesurf Tour Europe. It were 6 sunny days at Sylt though.

Monday morning we drove to Sankt Peter-Ording for the Worldcup and we had wind every single day!! It was really nice to be on the water after a week of no wind. Tomorrow registration and saturday is the first day of the competition! The PKRA takes 9 days so we have enough chance for good wind.

A GOOD START, 2nd PLACE KTE

The 28th of May we left to the South of France, Almanarre for the first stop of the European Championship. The place is known for really strong wind and the forecast was looking good.

The first day of the competition the wind was very strong and most riders were out on their smallest kites. The wind was pretty gusty and the sea was really choppy, which made it very difficult for everyone to show their best tricks. I won two heats in the singles, lost against Sabrina Lutz, and won the loosers final which gave me a 3rd place after the first day.

The second day the wind was a bit less strong and we continued with the double elimination. First I had to defend my 3rd place against Hannah Withely, after that I won against my good friend Nanette van der Snoek and I got second place. Then I had to go against Sabrina Lutz for first place, won my first heat and we had to do a super final which I lost. Really happy with my second place, next event will be in one month in Sylt, Germany!

FIRST STOP OF THE KTE

Tomorrow me and two friends will leave to the first stop of the Kitesurf Tour Europe in France at the Almanarre Kite Masters.

At the moment I’m packing my bags …

… and still enjoying the nice sessions I had this weekend!!
