Klass Voget

Klaas Voget G-4 has joined the International Simmer Style team.

Klaas was born in Aurich, Northern Germany and began to windsurf in 1992.

Over his career he has balanced top results with inspiring explorative travel to almost all the corners of the earth.

He can adapt to any environment and always goes out no matter how big, scary or cold it is. When it comes down to it Voget is one of those guys that just loves to windsurf, and he does so at the top level.

Klaas’s sail of choice is the Icon and it seems only natural that he chooses Icon to cover his need for a versatile and powerful sail that will adapt to all the environments an elite travelling professional, such as Simmer’s Klaas Voget, encounters.
