Floor + big wave surfing

Floor Quirijns, fisheries researcher at Imares IJmuiden

'The freedom of being on your surfboard on the sea'
This photo is simulated of course. 'To really do something, waves need to be at least one metre high', explains Floor Quirijns. 'Then you can really start fighting the wave as it tries to chuck you off'. But such rollers are not common on the coast at Ijmuiden, so she often goes abroad. To South American, Morocco or France. Not at the moment though, due to circumstances (and a baby). 'But I hope to get into the swing of it again soon.'
