About

We are Kaspar Hamminga and Erik Ringelberg. Together we are the proud owners of the Dutch Surf Academy.

Born in ‘s Gravenzande and Hoek van Holland, the North Sea was always at a stone’s throw from our houses. We have been in the water every day for fifteen years. Rain, wind, hail and even winters in the snow, we paddle out on a daily base for our necessary dose of salty water and waves. We have traveled all over the world to the most beautiful places on earth to find the perfect waves. Indonesia, Peru, Morocco, Portugal, Canary Islands, you name it. Naturally, wonderful places and waves were found, but nothing is as nice as our own homebreak Vlugtenburg,

All the hours invested in our surfing eventually started to pay off and now we can be found in almost every Dutch surf magazine. On the internet, you will also be able to find a lot of interviews, photos and videos of us. Up until recently we were coaches of the Dutch Junior Surf Team in which we would young surfers to become professional surf athletes.  On top of it all Kaspar has recently become the Dutch Surf Champion for the third time!

The Dutch Surf Academy was founded out of love for the sport. We would like to give you the chance to experience this great sport in the most safe and enjoyable way as possible.

See you in the water!
