Niek van der Velden, Dutch pro snowboarder, spent a few days of surfing at our Surf Camp last summer. In this video he explains his experience at Latas Surf during the week he shared with us. Hit play button to see what the young rider thinks about the stylelife at our Surf house.
At the young age of 19 Niek is competing at the highest level internationally. Watching him ripping at the snowpark is really awesome! You can follow him on Instagram to stay tuned and watch his sick tricks: @niekvdv. On February 1 Niek was in Mammoth for the US Grand Prix FIS World Cup where he got the 5th place in the slopestyle category. The young Dutch rider is among the best snowboarders of the world, which makes perfect sense to be sponsored by brands such as Volcom or Arbor. At the 2018 South Korean Winter Olympics he represented his country, being the youngest member of his team.
There is no doubt that Niek has a big and promising career ahead at snowboarding world, and of course we will follow him enthusiastically. Meanwhile, we will be waiting for him at our Surf House for the next time he want to change, for a few days, snow for water.
