And here is Robin, a dutch big fella with a warm smile! I met him a couple of years ago with Yannick de Jager and we catched up a few days ago in Praia do Vau. He moves quite fast for his height, check him out!
Brek: How long have you been surfing?
Robin: I have been surfing since the age of thirteen and I’m twenty-five now… So I guess that’s half of my life.
Brek: Do you remember your first good ride?
Robin: My first good wave was a little one really close to the beach. While trying to prevent a straight hander and ending up on the sand the wave actually forced me in to my first good ride.
Brek: What is your regular spot?
Robin: My regular spot is Scheveningen, in the Scheveningen. Although the Netherlands is not well known for beautiful waves and most of the time the water is pretty cold, every now and then little wind swells provide us some fun waves.
Brek: Have you had any trouble in the water?
Robin: Believe it or not, Scheveningen used to be known for it’s localism. As a grom I got sent out of the water a few times.
Brek: Where was your last epic session?
Robin: My last epic session was in G-land.
Brek: What’s your favourite food?
Robin: My favourite food is Indonesian food, nasi kuning rames special!
Brek: What else should we know about you?
Robin: I’m 1,96 meter tall and love to eat pastel de nata.
A morning with dutch guys Robin and Yannick, no bifanas or egg sandwiches this time, just surfing. Glad the sun came out, great lighting at last. Got a couple of great ones under my sleeve for the mags!
