Catching the Wind: The Pioneer Behind Our Passion

The Spirit of Surfers Residence: Juliaan's Legacy

An athlete with blazing passion for kitesurfing. Juliaan is an IKO & VDWS Kite instructor and a successful founder. He learned how to kitesurf in Fuerteventura 20 years ago and has since then been infected by the kitevirus. To explore the sport to its full potential he has already visited many spots in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America and the Caribbean. Tarifa offers him the exact conditions he was looking for. With the SurfersResidence he shares his water sports passion and his several trips’ experience to its guests. Now the house is under new ownership, more watersports and Tarifa enthusiasts, but we think this story about Juliaan is important to the house and its history.
