The Lowdown 

I’m 18 and live in a small village in Belgium, close to the border with the Netherlands. I started with windsurfing when I was seven. I was hooked immediately after my first session with my father who has now been windsurfing for 25 years. He taught me the windsurfing basics. Aged 10, I started freestyle as the Netherlands has one of the world’s best spots – Brouwersdam.
