Dutch wakeboarding star Duncan Zuur is one of the most successful sportsmen to ride the waves to have come out of Europe.
A constant threat on the water to the best national and international talent out there for nearly 20 years, he has become well known for his courageous tricks which include wakeboarding across a flooded St Mark's Square in Venice and sliding down the narrow canals of Amsterdam.
Between 2000 and 2004 he scooped five straight national titles and a third-place finish at the 2003 World Championships in Sydney that sent his profile rocketing.
