“I can no longer walk, but I will learn how to fly.” This is what Willem Hooft said after he ended up in a wheelchair due to a motorbike accident in 2017. His big dream was to kitesurf the waves of South Africa and during his rehabilitation, he began his search for the possibilities to make his dream come true. He had a customized surfboard produced with a seat on it and after months of hard training, the time had finally come. At the beginning of 2019, Willem flew to Cape Town, where he made his dream come true. “This adventure has surpassed even my wildest dreams.”
Nowadays Willem's mission is promoting the sport of sit-kitesurfing and with the help of his foundation, he is making the sport more accessible than ever to people with disabilities. Willem gives motivational talks worldwide about personal leadership, dealing with change and never giving up on what the human spirit can accomplish. His passion inspires others to never stop dreaming which makes him the perfect fit for the Wind Voyager Team.
