How it started

My skate journey started in 1994, when i was 8 years old. It started with recreational skating on the streets, in my neighborhood, and soon i was inspired by my brother (Sven Boekhorst, former world champion) to als try doing stunts, nowadays known as roller freestyle skating. And not without success. I became Dutch champion several times in the women’s category, participated in the European X Games in Barcelona at the age of 16, performed in many skate shows, including the spectacular Mind the Gap, skated some marathons in Berlin and I did several video projects for the brand Rollerblade.

Several years ago, I started teaching childeren in Den Bosch how to skate, which made me super excited.Later, when i lived in Amsterdam I attented the international training ICP (inline certification program) to become a skate instructor. Although at first I felt some resistance to this, breaking down certain techniques into small steps and becoming more aware was incredibly instructive. I find joy in sharing my passion with others. The childeren are often very enthusiastic! Creating a safe environment that empowers people, making growth and enjoyment possible, is something I find very important. After all, everyone learns in their own unique way and I adjust my approach to make sure you get the guidance that’s just right for you!
