Top DropDown - Team Rider
Born and raised in Curacao. Started sailing at age 11. I always like to go on adventures. Sailing crazy places.
I always liked to do water sports from a young age, when the funny thing was that I first was scared for water. I always stayed in the shallow area. But after I started to do my first water sport ,which was waterpolo. I made a special bound with water that I never let go. So you will always see me on the water surfing, swimming, fishing and supping
