MottoEven when something is really good it can be made better!


I’m a windsurfer at heart, simple things make me happy, just give me some wind and waves, maybe a little sunshine too and life is grand. I love my family and enjoy being active on and of the water. With loving family I’m super proud to be a part of the Gun Sails team, they have over the short last 3 years become my family. It is a company that is Family run and you can feel that. I like things different, I like things new and I like to make it. My passion is windsurfing and in the last 15 years I have worked on making windsurfing more fun by making gear that works and lasts. I believe the best innovations are still ahead in my career and I’m working hard to bring some of the crazy idea’s I have in my head to life and possibly to the market. Plenty of idea’s to make windsurfing easier and even more awesome!
