What is your most memorable moment in your sports?

For me, every session is exciting and unique but I definitely had the best memorable moments in Blouberg, South Africa. A magic place where one forgets everything around them.

Favourite conditions?

I prefer shallow water spots. Little waves as a kicker are fun, too. Variations are never bad

Favourite toys?

I love being on the water with my 7er Liquid Force Envy and my Aloha Board! It is getting better with a small kite and much wind.

What is your diet like?

I am not really into diets. I try to eat healthy and nutritious. I love all kinds of fruits, but at the same time crisps

What things do you currently do in your training that are key to your success?

Because kitesurfing is my counterpart to business work, it is more important for me to have fun than anything else! It is also true that I try to improve my level with every session which is why I love to try out new kicks and moves, but it is more important to clear my mind and forget about everyday life!

Best advice anyone’s ever given you?

I have learned to live in the here and now and to cherish every moment with family and friends who are a meaningful part of my life. You should always just do what feels good to you and distance yourself from people and things which do not and will not make you happy!

Do you have a saying or motto you live life by?

Who fights can lose, who does not fight has already lost!

What is your biggest challenge, and how do you manage it?

And my biggest challenge?? Uhm, maybe to not go kitesurfing when there is wind, but to go to work instead.

What would be your ultimate achievement?

I do not focus on performance and success, but it would be nice to combine work and hobby some day!

Anything else you would like to share?

Go kiting!!
