…want to know a bit more…
Well, at first HI to you all! Thanks for taking a peek at my website. I’m a young professional snowboarder from the Netherlands, an illogical country to start off a snowboard career because it just can’t get flatter than here. But in my sixth year on this planet a huge indoor snowdome was built right next to my hometown. It took until my tenth year until -during a friends party- we visited the snow hall where I snowboarded for the very first time. Instantly I got hooked on snowboarding and from that day on I have been on my snowboard. I just seem never wanting to stop It never gets old.

After some years of indoor and outdoor snowboarding and competing in numerous rail battles and slopestyle competitions around in Europe, at the age of fourteen I got selected to join the Junior Dutch Snowboard Team named NSkiV Dutch Rookie Team. Under the supervision of their trainers my slopestyle and big air skills were developed furthermore there. Thanks guys for all your effort!
At the age of sixteen I got selected to join the NSkiV Dutch Snowboard Team to compete with the world’s best Rookie snowboarders around the globe. During this period I attended many European Cups, World Rookie Tours, TTR Contests and World Cups. All this experience helped me to step up my game, and with absolute pride I can say I’ve won the 2015 FIS Junior World Championships Slopestyle in Yabuli China, this felt truly awesome! Someone I absolutely want to give credits to, for this whole period is mytrainer/mental coach…;-)) Frank van der Putten, MAJOR thanks to you Frank!

As of the 2016-2017 season there will be new big challenges ahead by debuting the World Cup, TTR and Big air riders on the highest level, with the ultimate goal to attend the 2018/2022 winter Olympic Games.
And what about the other people surrounding me? Well my family, staff, friends, partners and sponsors have always supported me fully. Among other things I therefore want to consider myself a lucky guy being able to do the one thing I love doing most, and enjoying every minute of it!
