Willem Hooft over onder andere de omstandigheden oop het water bij Shceveningen op 11 mei.
On May 11th 2020 I went sit-kiting at Scheveningen (The Netherlands). The sea was rough, the current was strong and there was lots of foam floating on the water. I decided to quit my session after getting slightly in trouble. When I came home I heard six other surfers got into trouble as well at the spot I was surfing, but with a terrible ending. Five of them didn't make it out alive.
Never underestamate the power of nature. The sea gives so much, but she also takes. I'll keep on pusing the limits, but stay mindful about the risks. I send my condoleances to the loved ones of the surfers who past away.
