My year 2014 in review

My year 2014 in review.

Health: good year recovering from active rheumatism, now under control with medication and windsurf therapy. Fitness however could be better.
Family: enjoy watching my kids develop into individuals making their own choices in life
Friends: close friends are always nearby when you need them
Work: proud on what I do but not in balance last few months
Windsurfing: good to be back on the water with the number of sessions (wind/sup) more than 2012/2013 together. Every session gives me a boost in energy that I need.



Looking forward to 2015 and make a few changes.
Enjoy your time with family&friends and in good health!

See you on the water or at the beach! :-D

Addicted to Windsurfing!

Started windsurfing back in '81, the same year that the Fanatic brand was founded.




Having an active windsurfcompetition career until '93 with multiple Dutch Champion titles in Racing/Funboard and top 5 at the Europeans.

Started windsurfing again approx 7 years ago and completely addicted again. Now also actively promoting Windsurfing where/when possible. Despite my rheumatism I will never stop windsurfing!


Very proud to be on the team and still addicted to ride!
