Raised in a town which is known for more cows gazing grass than actual waves rolling in, it wasn't very obvious to start surfing for Julia. Thanks to her marine biologist dad and vitamine D addicted mom, she was lucky enough to leave Groningen (NLD) during summer holidays, and visit the warmer countries of Europe. Yearly, the family drove to the mediterranean sea to search for the most colorful diving sites, and so her passion for the ocean was created. The same was planned for the summer of 2005, but this plan changed quickly when their van broke down in Bordeaux. With the last bit of power, they made it to the Atlantic coast of France. This is where the family saw people riding waves for the first time. It was at that moment that Julia discovered a new passion.
Since I make use of mother nature, I feel obliged to give back. That is why I am trying to raise awareness via projects, clean-ups, and online platforms. With a goal to motivate people in leaving a place cleaner then when arrived. Because in the end, we all breath the same oxygen and make use of the nature in any kind of way.
Proudly part of We Are Nature
