Beyrick De Vries South African Pro Surfer on representing The Netherlands in the Olympics and Coaching the Netherland’s Junior Surf Team

Beyrick De Vries grew up in Durban, South Africa and initially started skateboarding before his dad convinced him to try surfing. He never looked back. Describing himself as 90% weird, and 100% happy about it, Beyrick’s a character. 

Beyrick started competing on WQS events at 16 years old, travelling to some of the best surf spots in the world.  He’s been close to qualifying for the Championship Tour on a few occasions, only missing out by a couple of spots. With surfing now in the Olympics Beyrick’s focus has shifted to qualifying for the Games to represent the Netherlands in Paris 2024 (which will be in Tahiti) but we’ll get into that. He will also be coaching the Netherlands’ Junior Surf Team. His goal is to raise the awareness of surfing and surf culture in the Netherlands and emphasis the importance of ocean conservation.

Tune in to find more about Beyrick’s journey. What he’s focusing on to qualify for the Olympics, video projects, being represented by Global Action Sports Foundation and FUNKT MGMT and loads more!

The concept for Rad Season came about when I was trekking around Latin America. I found it difficult to find cool events and festivals going on that were a bit different and had an element of adventure and general radness to them. I knew that there was always something rad worth going to somewhere in the world, but there was no single platform bringing them together for like-minded people. With over 15 years experience in international business development, spanning multiple industries including action sports, events, media, digital, ICT, travel and tourism, I decided to combine them all with Rad Season.
