Newcomer Louk Timmer

Louk Timmer from the Netherlands is happy to receive the second Wildcard from the MINI Kitesurf Tour Europe for Freestyle Men during the competition in France.

My name is Louk Timmer and I have my roots in the Netherlands. When I was fifteen years old I took my first kite lesson and it changed my life. After one year of kiting I started to teach other people as well, this way I could save some money for travelling. Since last year I'm riding for North Kiteboarding and ION and I am very happy about it. 

My plans are to do the whole tour, it would be the first year I would do a whole tour. Off course it is exciting for me how I will do during the first stop in France, but my main goal is to have fun because than I am at my best. I know what I can and can not do but I'm not affraid of taking some risks when I'm in a underdog position!
