*Age:* 22 years
*Hometown: * Haarlem, The Netherlands
*Current board quiver…..what you use it for: * Rocking the TK pro model which is the perfect board for me with the length for stability on big airs and big bottom surface of smooth rail riding. Riding with the MBS heelstraps that give me total control in the air and on rails.
*Favorite style of riding. What your ideal ride day would be. Where you would like to go riding that you haven’t already:* Since Holland is famous for being a really flat country I ride a lot of rails and jib around most of the time here. I really enjoy riding small jibs, rails and jumps to just get creative, but the riding big jumps is also what i love to ride.
My ideal ride day is any day i get to ride with friends. Waking up on a sunny in at tent at the bottom of the mountainboard piste of Wanyi, then going up for breakfast with the draglift seeing loads of friends from all over the world and ride with them all day and as icing on the cake finish the night with a nice campfire is definately really high on my list. However any day riding with friends at Ride the hill’s XBP, in Moscow, in the US with my homies from the team, France and of course Holland might qualify as my ideal ride day.
I’d love to come down to the USA asap to ride more spots there, Australia with Dylan Warren and Ryan Slater, Brasil looks amazing so do the spots in Spain and Polland. I recon there are 1000 of places left in the world where i would like to ride.
*How did you get into the sport:* Basically by watching the mbs.com video’s online. I wanted to go snowboarding in summer and instead of buying a ticket to my local indoor snowboard piste i figured i’d rather go mountainboarding. After some time riding alone with my friends i got into contact with the guys at mountainboard.be and they got my into the whole mountainboard scene.
