Originally from Belgium, Wim DeCree has been a professional water skier and coach since 1998. He started skiing and competing at a young age and, even though several coaches told him that he wouldn’t be able to make it to the top of the sport due to his height of 5’7”, he always had a burning desire to do just that.
Ultimately, Wim came to compete at the highest level and went on to secure 12 Belgium National Championship titles. He was also successful as a finalist at World Championships and earned a Silver Medal at European Championships. In addition, he set the Belgian national record at 2 @ 41 off in 1999, a record that still stands today.
After 30 years of tournament experience, Wim’s focus has shifted from competition to becoming the best slalom coach he can be. Nowadays, Wim finds great joy and satisfaction in helping skiers of all levels become better athletes and achieve – and even exceed – their goals. He is known for his unsurpassed level of professionalism and personal attention.
“In order to succeed, I found that proper technique and the correct mental approach can create amazing results,” says Wim.
