Whilst Europe is getting colder and colder, down under they are getting geared up for a very hot summer. Here's a a gallery from a secret spot in deepest, darkest WA with up and coming rider Niels van Toor.

"Niels van Toor is currently 22 years old and living in Perth, Western Australia. These images were taken two weeks ago at a secret spot on the west coast of Australia.

Whilst the trip saw nearly 6 days straight of great conditions, it ended when Niels received two hairline fractures in his right foot as a result of a badly landed aerial. Niels has been windsurfing since he was around 14 years old and has been wavesailing since he was 16. Currently, Niels windsurfs for leisure, but is aiming to compete in wave competitions around W.A this summer if his fractured foot recovers in time.

Whilst also being an avid stand up paddle boarder and surfer, Niels’ main passion has always been windsurfing."
