Welcome to the team Timo Boersema
We are proud to announce Timo Boersema as the newest member of the Naish International Team. Fresh off his podium finish in Cold Hawaii throwing massive double loops he catapulted his way past a field of the world's top big air riders. In addition to his impressive performance in Cold Hawaii he has qualified for the prestigious 2022 Red Bull King of the Air.
Timo is no stranger to Naish as he has been a part of Naish Team Europe for the past two years, coached by the likes of Stig Hoefnagel and Louka Pitot. The future is bright as his progression continues skyward from short lines to massive double loops. Timo is pushing the boundaries of big air kiteboarding. Timo is currently based in the Netherlands and when he isn’t studying in school he is on the water having fun, and training for the world’s top kiteboarding competitions. We are excited to see him this year in Cape Town.
A WORD FROM TIMO
"I am so stoked to join this legendary kite brand! It has always been a dream to become an international team rider and represent a brand that I feel the most comfortable with, but I never believed I would ride for a brand like Naish. I can’t wait to show you all the sickest content on my instagram page! There are a lot of cool things coming…"

Q&A WITH TIMO
How long have you been competing professionally in kiteboarding?
I have been competing at a professional level since one year ago, it’s crazy how fast everything is going. I mainly focus on competing in big air.
Kiteboarding has been progressing on so many levels lately, what areas/tricks are you working on?
The tricks I have been working on lately are kiteloop board off variations with 3 or more rotations.
At Naish we are all about the gear – what is your "go-to" set up for big air?
My favorite setup is the 55 cm bar on the naish 8 m pivot. I really love this setup.
Where is your favorite place to kiteboard?
My favorite place to kite is Cape Town, South Africa. This is the place to be for big air kitesurfing.
What are some of your goals for the 2023 season?
My goals for 2023 are progressing my own skills and helping with the development of Naish kites. I will try to compete as much as I can while in school and of course making sick videos!
