Hi, my name is Roderick Pijls, from the Netherlands. I started kitesurfing approximately 8 years ago when I saw a sky full of coloured kite’s. I was so eager to learn it and after the first time I stood straight on my board I was addicted. I couldn’t imagine being on the beach without my kite, the freedom that kitesurf delivers is just amazing. There will be no one telling you when/ where/ how you should kite, you can make your own rules/ style and decide for yourself where and for how long you want to kite. The adrenaline rush is getting more addictive every time I get out on the water. The line between landing or crashing a trick can be so thin that it excites such an adrenaline rush.
I used to play field hockey in the Dutch National team, combining my trainings with my high school- and later University exams was my life before I discovered kiting. Comparing the field hockey with kiting is like day and night haha.. However, I enjoyed it as much as I am enjoying the kiting now.

Roderick is the personification of the Peter Lynn Kiteboarding spirit with his passion for the sport, way of life and the feeling of freedom kitesurfing delivers.
In Roderick’s words: “I am super stoked, exited and proud to be part of the Peter Lynn family and I’m amped for the stories and adventures this new collaboration will bring”
