I am born in The Hague/ Netherlands and lived there until I was 7 years old. In 2016 I moved to California/ USA with my family. Due to my parents I was always on the beach and around surfing. However, only when I was 9 and I first started surfing on a shortboard, I really got into it.  Since two years I am competing in the NSSA and other local Santa Cruz/ Californian competions. I bike to surf my homebreaks at Santa Cruz daily; Pleasure Point, The Hook, Sewers. My favorite tricks are air reverse, rail carves and blow tails. I love being in the ocean and around water, next to surfing I also play competitive waterpolo for the Santa Cruz Waterpolo club.
