DOB: 20 September 1984

Years on the water: 20 years
How did you get into SUP:
I was introduced to Stand Up Paddleboarding by Ivan Van Vuuren back in 2009. He let me try out one of his boards and I was immediately hooked. He later gave me a 8 foot vibe which we both competed on at the first ever ISA SUP World Champs in Peru in 2012.

If you not on the water:
I tend to dry out like a fish and get extremely agitated. To prevent that from happening though, I like to play a game of tennis or go for a run in the mountains.
