LATEST FROM Annabel van Westerop
Annabel van Westerop
I was born and grew up in the Netherlands. When I was eleven years old, my parents decided to move the beautiful island of Aruba… lucky me! During the first few years I was totally into Paso Fino horseback riding. I even went to the world championships in Colombia and returned with a silver medal.
When I was 14 I got to know kiteboarding and was immediately hooked! After four years of practicing the sport I finished high school and started my career as a professional kiteboarder.
At the moment I am living a dream. I travel all over the world competing in the PKRA World Tour of freestyle and visiting as many events as possible. My goals? Enjoy life as much as possible and become world champion!
This weekend I'm organising a Kids Pro Clinic at my homespot in Aruba! Over the past few weeks I was amazed to see so many kids shredding and I would love to help them to take it to the next level! All kids of 16 years and younger are welcome and we will have some snacks and drinks for after the session. I hope to see you there! Made possible by @cabrinhakites and #Fiberworx
So. What I haven't told you yet is that on my way back from Morocco my bag never arrived. The reason I haven't told you this is because the past two weeks I've been calling airlines and airports and secretly keeping my hopes up that it might still be found. However, like said, it has been 2 weeks now and no trace whatsoever. ALL my stuff gone. Kites, boards, boots, wetsuits, everything. 😤 So while I'm trying to figure all this out, #Fiberworx, our local surfshop has been so kind to help me out with an 8m kite to borrow for these few windy weeks at home. 🙏 And on the bright side, this gives me the chance to check out the new Cabrinha FX a bit better! 💪 Thank you so much Fiberworx, you guys are the best.
