Sportive achievements
Several first descents in West Sumatra, Indonesia. Also paddled in South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Sweden and Norway. But mostly just having a great time in beautiful places with my friends is achieving the goal already.

Gear
Any boat, as long as it’s a Fluid Kayak. Using H20 and Werner paddles, Snap Dragon and Level 6 decks, Kokatat dry top, Astral PFD and Sweet helmets, as well as a few other things from Palm and Goya. No complaints.

Favorite break
Anywhere with long rides. On a given day, Derde Steen, Karmers (Kamer Van 17) or Melkbosstrand’s Tubewave. All these spots are in Cape Town.
