Follow your wind
it's always the right direction!
You love adventure. And you want to enjoy a life full of freedom, health and happiness. Although your desires always point you in the right direction, it’s not always easy to follow them. Society is simply not structured that way.
However, it’s absolutely possible to break free and design the lifestyle you chose. Many have done it. Many are doing it right now. And tomorrow, many will follow.
All it takes is a step in the right direction. To listen to your inner guidance. Or as we like to call it: to Follow Your Wind.

BRANDSTORY - PURPOSE MOVES US
Imagine how it would be to live your life with purpose. To create the life of your dreams. What would you do? Who would you be? How would you live?
All it takes is a vision. And small, daily steps towards it.
Follow Your Wind acts as your daily source of motivation, so you can take those small steps and create the life of your dreams.
That’s what we have done. And you can do so too.
But it wasn’t always easy
When we decided to escape the 9-5 in our twenties, people laughed at us. “How are you going to do that?” they asked mockingly.
Back in those days, Nicole worked as a dental hygienist. She felt trapped between four walls and wanted something else. She didn’t want to spend the rest of her days working like that.
Stijn had a similar experience when he was 18 and still studying. One day, when he was a cab driver, he drove his friends to a party. He was working while his friends were having fun. “Is this the life I want,” he asked himself. He realised there must be a better way.
Those experiences eventually led us to become entrepreneurs. But neither of us came from entrepreneurial families. And people around us continually projected their fears upon us.
“Are you sure that is the right decision? Isn’t it better to just take a job?” Basically, they told us to get our heads out of the clouds.
That’s when we decided to go to some entrepreneurial events. The people there thought completely differently, they saw opportunities instead of problems.
We started to surround ourselves with supportive people. Daily reminders and affirmations also helped us to escape the 9-5 and achieve the life of our dreams.
This is also our purpose with Follow Your Wind.
It takes courage to think differently. To not stay stuck in life. We all need the motivation to believe anything is possible.
Through daily reminders, we want you to know and believe that it is possible. That you can break free and create the life you desire.
Follow Your Wind is all about YOU
In the end, Following Your Wind is not so much about escaping the 9-5 or making a lot of money. It’s about staying true to yourself, because then you have the biggest chance to achieve happiness and success.
Following Your Wind is also about letting go of the opinions and expectations of others. A lot of times, people want to push you ‘back’ in the system. It takes a lot of courage and confidence to do your own thing.
By wearing Follow Your Wind, you make a statement to yourself and the world. You will no longer tolerate any bullshit from your environment. 😉 And you will start taking action towards your dreams. From now on, you will Follow Your Wind.
This way, you not only inspire and motivate yourself, but also the people you surround yourselves with.
More about us
We’re Nicole van Gool and Stijn Zeeman — Dutch digital nomads, travellers, and enthusiasts in search of a better way to live. We love kitesurfing, as being out on the water and riding with the wind symbolizes freedom for us.
In 2019 we made a 5-month kitesurf road trip through Portugal, which we called “Follow The Wind. During that road trip, we met countless like-minded people who desired to create an adventurous lifestyle with more freedom. They started, but society got in the way.
They gave up on their own direction and started to follow society’s or someone else’s wind. And that’s a pity because it doesn’t make them happy…
The most important thing we learned from kiteboarding is that you can’t beat the wind. But if you use the wind in the right way, you’ll have a great time on the water. And so it is in life.
That’s why we invite you to Follow Your Wind.
Live the life you love that makes you smile.
Join the ‘Follow Your Wind’-family by wearing our brand.
When you Follow Your Wind amazing things will happen in your life.
Follow Your Wind!
It’s always the right direction.
Nicole & Stijn
