Steven Akkersdijk is from Holland. He is in South Africa again now after he got 5th in Dutch Nationals. Just before that, he was again in this year's Redbull Megaloop contest.

I met him in Bahia de Salinas 2 years ago, and not only was he fantastic to watch but he also impressed me as one of the most mature people I ever met, yet only 19 yrs old at the time.
& here is his video from Brazil last year :
