Nick Neyens

Redbull X-Alps competitor

Nick has been actively exploring the world hiking and flying (vol biv) since he learnt to fly in 2007. Trained as an engineer, after returning from one year working in Antarctica he took two years off to travel. Following hike and fly competitions in the Pyrenees (X-Pyr 2014) and South Africa’s Drakensberg mountains (X-Berg 2014), he completed the 2015 Red Bull X-Alps in tenth place. He hopes to write about his subsequent adventures in South America while studying to become a meteorologist. See more of Nick at Share My Joys
