Hendrick Interview

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for Kitesurfing?

For me, Kitesurfing is more than a sport, it’s a lifestyle, it’s a life attitude, it’s a part of me.

When I’m kiting my goal is to get better each session, to learn new tricks, to jump higher and do better turns on the waves and so much more. I’ve been kiting since I was 8 years old and since then, the world has opened to me and given me the chance to meet people who share the same passion but come from different places. That’s allowed me to travel with these people to amazing destinations and ride different conditions to have as much fun as possible.

 

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?

Support all people in need and build some guest houses around the globe.

 

Next destination?

Where the waves rolls and the wind blows.

“ The world has opened to me and given me the chance to meet people who share the same passion. ”
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

It just began. Living the life I’ve dreamed.

 

What are you doing during a day without wind?

Search for waves!
