After I finished the sport school in Holland I finished in Austria the “Snowboardführer”, snowboard guide. Since 2003 I live in the Alps and travel the world for freeriding.
It is wonderful to share my passion with guests. We share unforgettable days, best powder snow which can be found, epic terrain, adventure and lots of fun. No matter if freeriding off the pist, a ski/splitboard tour from hut to hut or heli-skiing, every day is a new adventure. Above all, I aim for maximal safety.
Many years I have been competing in Chinese Downhill and Big Mountain competitions. I was the first and only Dutch men who competed in the Freeride World Tour in 2013/2014.
FOTO & FILM
I still ride for foto and film shoots. Together with friends, the ‘Gnarlberg Steinbock’ crew, we made a movie called ‘By Fair Means’ (see videos). This was the winning movie at the Freeride Film Festival 2013. You find me in Dutch Magazine and at the cover of the Taste and Deep.
In summer my friend Bas Elhorst and I have a bike school MTB Tours and Trails. We offer all kind of MTB Camps all over Europe. Beside that I have other jobs as photographer, sport teacher, repairing old houses and more… My hobbies are climbing, surfing, breakdance, kayaking, traveling and match more…
