Sjors van de Kerkhof

Sjors van de Kerkhof

When I was 12 years old, a cableway was built next to my house. There were no wakeboards back then, so I started out with waterskiing, trickskiing, slalom and jumping. About five years later the first wakeboards came to Europe and from that moment onward I was only riding wakeboards.

Without magazines or internet, the only examples we had were movies from US riders behind the boat. We had to invent our own tricks and we started building kickers and rails. Looking back on that period, the Dutch scene was growing and so was I. Later on, I picked up my first sponsors Jobe and Protest, competitions were held and the media attention was growing as well.

Nowadays I still ride as much as I can, enjoying every moment I’m on a wakeboard. On this website, a collection of virtual postcards to the world, you can check out the latest adventures of me and my friends.

If you got any questions, please send me a digital postcard at info@greetingsfromsjors.com.
