About Maarten van Ochten

Hello, thank you for visiting the website of Maarten van Ochten. Professional windsurfer. During a vacation, when he was 7 years old, Maarten stood on a surf board for the very first time. He was immediately hooked and wanted nothing else, but to practice the entire time. He already liked sports: field hockey and tennis. But soon after this first surf experience he started attending windsurf vacation camps. When he was 12 years old, he seriously got into windsurfing together with a bunch of friends. The only thing he was dreaming about was getting better in windsurfing.

 

When Freestyle windsurfing got more popular he also started to focus on Freestyle windsurfing. It quickly turned out that he liked this discipline very much and that it was better suited for him then racing. Shortly after that, he quit racing and started focusing on Freestyle windsurfing completely. The first big competition that he won was the “Young guns of Freestyle” in 2003 when he earned a wild card for “The Prince of the lake”. A PWA world cup and he has been exclusively focusing on Freestyle windsurfing ever since.

 

In the period of 2005 - 2006 his school permitted him to take a break, and go to Aruba, where he could train under the best possible conditions. He really learned a lot during this first stay on Aruba. In 2008 he first started attending in the international level of Freestyle. This was his first year participating in the European Championships (EFPT) and also entering the world circuit (PWA).
