Originally from a small town near Amsterdam, Duco always dreamed of living by the ocean and made that dream come true a few years ago. Currently based in Ericeira, Portugal, he spends his summers in Les Landes, France, or travels the world to find warm and clean waves. While he absolutely loves surfing, he never takes it too serious and makes sure to remember that it’s all about having fun and offering his energy to the ocean. When he is not in the ocean, he is on his surfskate. For Duco, the most satisfying thing about surfskating, is that you can endlessly focus on improving a single manoeuvre. And when you got the hang of it, test it in the water, and succeed.
