I am a cable wakeboarder from the Netherlands. My first experience on the water was behind a boat in Cyprus, which is where I grew up. I started cable wakeboarding in the end of 2010, when I moved back to the Netherlands to study at University. Since then, it has taken me all over the world, from the US to Turkey, and Australia. I now live here on the Sunny Coast, where I enjoy wakeboarding and surfing as much as possible.
My goal in wakeboarding is not necessarily to compete in every contest. The occasional contest is fun, but this is more because I enjoy riding and hanging out with friends and meeting new people, rather than having the ambition to win. My ultimate goal is to keep pushing my riding, have fun and be as creative as I can.
Another thing I really enjoy is inspiring others to ride. That is why I started working as a wakeboard coach at Down Under Wake Park in the Netherlands in 2012. Now I work as one of the main wakeboard coaches at Bli Bli Wake Park, one of the best rail parks in the world.
Outside of the water, I am really interested in digital marketing. That is why since the winter of 2017, I started working at Chilli Group. Here at Chilli, I am in charge of the R. E. D. program you are currently looking at!
