My windsurfing life
Pro windsurfer since 1998
‘Windsurfing is my life. In it I find a way of expressing myself in total freedom.’
I started my professional career on the PWA tour back in 1998, not only as a racer, but also to develop hundreds of products for windsurfers (Fanatic, NeilPryde, JP, Gunsails, Anguloboards, Vector Fins, and my own brand ‘The Pro Batten‘). I am devoted to windsurfing and love to share and spread my passion by helping windsurfers to perform better and maximize enjoyment on the water. I encourage windsurfing at any level and engage with people to reach higher performance and more fun in windsurfing and their gear.
I distinguish myself by advising on products I truly believe in and recommending products that have the best fit for your purpose, condition and ambition.
I bring performance to the next level by focusing on innovation. I am always eager to improve gear by thinking outside the box, and to find ways to enhance overall performance. I advise amateurs, PWA riders, and Olympic windsurfers.
