Owner and instructor
With his robust beard, Arjen is not to be missed on the water. He is always smiling, fond of water, wave surfing, windsurfing and kiting. For years he has been teaching various water sports with great pleasure. Arjen is known for his calm explanation and a lot of patience during the lesson. With this he gets everyone on the board!
Owner and instructor
Small in size but certainly not to be missed on the water. This enthusiastic kite surfer loves freestyling and does not like waves. As an instructor, she is energetic, patient and attaches great importance to safety and independence. She is super excited when you make your first meters and in any case comes with a smile from the water!
Sem welcomes all our students wagging her tail and makes sure everyone goes on the water in a happy way. Then she guards your valuables and saves you from the surf if needed. And guess who is just as stoked when you come off the water after 3 hours?
Manager and instructor
Jeroen is our Brazil specialist and the master of backrolls. He takes his car or classic motorbike to check the kite spots in Zeeland for you, but is still the most fan of Vrouwenpolder. As a captain-to-be he knows everything about wind and sea, go Jeroen!
Manager and instructor
Taco from Goes is so fond of sports and good at teaching that he even went to study for it. He attends the ALO in Eindhoven during the week, and has been teaching kitesurfing with us during the weekends and holidays since 2019. He is jumping higher every week, so better keep an eye on him!
Sven is our full-time instructor. He is a VDWS instructor and has extensive experience in teaching both kite- and windsurfing lessons. This boy can speak very good German and can teach children very well. We are very happy with him in our team!
Aron has been an instructor with us since 2017, together with Jeroen, and loves kitesurfing. With a cart behind his scooter, he can often be found on Neeltje Jans and knows this spot on his thumbs! He is a calm and patient instructor and can secretly laugh very sweetly, just look!
Besides that Jacco works at the Ski School in Terneuzen, he also likes to give kitesurfing lessons! A real board sportsman. He is always up for a laugh and will make you laugh during your lesson anyway!
Iris is a real Zeeland instructor! In addition to her job in a restaurant, she is on the water in Zeeland as much as possible. In addition to kiting, you will also find her on the wakeboard track every week, to work on all backrolls, kickers and other tricks!
Our Swedish instructor, and what kind! With a heart for kite surfing, this chick cannot be beaten from the water. With her jumps and attempts to backrolls she is always going all in! After a few seasons in Vietnam, she thought it was time to discover Europe this year. For the first time a warm wetsuit, but luckily we have a wonderfully warm summer!
This Englishman and ex-soldier has been giving kite surfing lessons all over the world for a number of years. Dave is a very experienced and calm instructor who can explain exactly how to kite surf and why you perform certain actions. In addition, he is also so handy that he has built his own camper!
Although James is originally from England, he has spent the past 10 years in China, and even speaks fluent Mandarin. As an outdoor instructor and kitesurf instructor he prefers to be outside and exercise, and he always does that with a very big smile on his face!
This electrical engineering student from Poland has come all the way to Zeeland this year to discover the beautiful province on the water. He has taught in all kinds of tropical places, and loves it when the sun is out. With his long hair he is a real surf dude and with his chill vibe he completes that!
Bo from Belgium is our youngest instructor this year! With her soft Flemish accent, she is super enthusiastic about kite surfing and teaching. Not long ago she was a student at KZ, but with the progress she has made she can now jump and make backrolls. Pretty epic right?!
Svenja has been our German instructor since 2018! She looks very sweet with those dimples in her cheeks, but she is mega tough when it comes to kite surfing. Backrolls, jumps, crashes, she can do it all! With her training as a teacher, she can teach you kitesurfing very well!
For Andi, the world is most beautiful when it is ‘pumpinnn’ outside. He is always on the water, during and between classes, but also before or after. This cheerful German has made a lot of progress since he was in the Netherlands. Are you checking his backroll kiteloops and frontrolls soon?
All the way from the far north, Roel comes to teach us kitesurfing lessons. In addition to kitesurfing lessons, he also gives sailing lessons, so he is crazy about water! And with his bum bag, wild blonde hair and sultry look, he is perhaps the most fancy instructor of Kitesurfschool Zeeland!
