Thierry Schmitter

As a mountaineer Thierry got hit by an avalanche while climbing… When the snow melted, Thierry sailed out winning multiple WC’s and participated in 3 Paralympics’. In his search for independence combined with his passion for the outdoors he became the godfather of “SitKite” and continues to develop this new sport. ‘Mr T’ now regularly blasts into the extreme on his wave board or kitefoil. On top of that Thierry is the chairman of the biggest Dutch kite, wind and surf club in the Netherlands, Jumpteam Scheveningen. In his professional career, Thierry is a patent examiner, examining inventions in the field of Marine engineering at the European Patent Office.
