In the summer of 2009 I learned kitesurfing and I am addicted to the wind ever since. I bought my own material in November 2009 and the cold couldn’t stop me from going. After a year I came in contact with Mystic through Natural High, a beach club located at the Brouwersdam. I live 17 kilometres from the Brouwersdam and they were impressed that I always cycled to the beach with a cart behind my bike loaded with my gear, no matter how cold it was and with every bit of wind. My motivation was enough for them to sponsor me and since then I am riding the great Mystic hardware (www.mysticboarding.com).
I am always trying new things on the water and I love the feeling that I have when I land a new trick, it’s like the feeling I had when I made my first metres on the board. Just the best feeling of the world! I love to ride with other freestyle kiters so we can push each other and have fun on the water.
The summer of 2011 I came into contact with Brunotti. Brunotti is an international boardsports lifestyle brand, including boards, clothing, footwear, bags, eyewear and stationery. I am really happy to help developing ladies kiteboard, the Riptide. When I am not on the water you will see me wearing really nice Brunotti clothes, visit their website to see all the great products: www.brunotti.com
After competing in the European Championships for 2 years and becoming European and Vice European Champion I am going to focus on the world championships this year.
