I am Eva, a full time doctor a parttime windsurfer. I like waveriding and jumping and I love to travel and go on adventure and discover all new places.

 

Windsurfing for me is more than a hobby, it’s passion and a lifestyle (mostly healthy). Next to my job I spend most of my time on the water whenever it’s windy or go for are surf of SUP when there are some waves.

 

To stay in balance I do yoga, try to sleep enough and and a add a lot of chocolate to my diet.

 

I think it’s importent to follow your dreams and to work hard yourself to fulfill it.

My History

I started windsurfing young, at a age of ten.

 

Watersports was in the family. Every year during Summer Holiday  we went with a campervan packet with a little sailingboat and windsurfequipment somewhere in Europe were there was water. 

 

I learned to sail in a little sailingboat first and it helped me to understand the principles of te wind working into the sail. 

I saw my older brother and father windsurfing and I wanted to learn it really badly, but the sail was to heavy for me to lift it up form the water.

One summer during our trip to Poland, the thousand lakes, I got a litlle kid sail for my birthday. the sail was superlight and I got hooked straigt away! 

The years after I did dependent on the Summer Holidays, until I went to University and became part of a extreme sport society: D.E.R.M.  Check out my BIO on extreme sports as well....
