Eike Onnecken grew up on the coast of East Frisia, a charming region of Germany. In 2016 he moved to Borkum, a small island in the North Sea. Where he quickly discovered his passion for kitesurfing and has been addicted to it ever since. While on vacation in Portugal he tried his hands at surfing, which he found to be the perfect complement to kitesurfing on windless days.
A few years later, he decided to dedicate himself fully to water sports by working as a kitesurfing instructor during the summer and using the winters to hone his surf skills and to travel the world, on the lookout for new surf adventures.
