Brian is one of the co-founders of I Love Surfing and inspires others to create better content. Brian once won a breath holding contest against Kelly Slater when he was 14. Brian is the most mysterious one of the whole I Love Surfing team, but he’s also the most sensitive. He and Martijn met at the university of Amsterdam, where they both studied Sports, Management and Business. Together with a third musketeer, they organized a ski trip for 250 students. It was there and then they realized they wanted to work together more often.

I have a few passions in life, but none greater than capturing a feeling or emotion on film and edit it in a way it moves people on a deeper level. That’s what I do for a living. For me, I Love Surfing is a way to share my passion with a world wide audience.

Brian is filming and editing full time for the production company he and Martijn founded together. In his spare time, he inspires Martijn to be a better content creator. He is also involved in I Love Surfing’s content strategy and long term goals.
