About Arne

Arne started kiteboarding in 2015. His father gave him his first lesson. After a few sessions with his dad he was stoked. 

Under the guidance of local legend Luc Smeets and Bart Delember he took lessons at Mojo’s Kitesurfschool. 

After a few years Arnes home spot changed to Oostende. The general level is much higher there with local legends such as Axel Tack, Thomas Declerck, Adriano Bono and Ian Sleuyter. With the lessons and tips of these legends his level improved a lot.
