Tricking is awesome. For the last 9 years we’ve been working hard to make every Hooked better than the last. Thanks to all our visitors and guests, we are able to do so!
What to expect? Real hype, battles, World Record attempts and overall as the Dutch call it ‘gezelligheid’*. We're always looking for underground killers, og’s and other phenomenal heavy weights. Hooked is the place to show the world what you’ve got!
*gezelligheid: a warm feeling that makes you happy to be at Hooked.
So we started out in 2013, wanting to organise a small gathering in Amsterdam. "Would be fun" is what Danny and Laurent were thinking out loud. Very unaware that Hooked would become like an unstoppable snowball that kept getting bigger and bigger at an impeccable pace.
Even though we've had our fair share of curveballs thrown at us, we always strive to make every edition better then the one before. We have been doing so with the most impressive line-ups filled with prominent special guests, shit tons of hype and of course our beloved partners, friends and community helping us out.
Laurent ‘Long Legs’ Arrabito
Species: French speaking Sicilian guy / HOOKED OG
Powers: French, dad jokes, 80’s aerobics moves.
Backstory: Laurent is still using Tricking to be hip in 2023.
Danny ‘Drone’ Kenniphaas
Species: Drone Operator / HOOKED OG
Powers: Tall, has cute babies, flying drones.
Backstory: He is basically a very tall version of Doc from Back to the Future. He invents crazy things and has a soft spot for Tricking.
Charlotte ‘Charlie Money’ Tol
Species: Labour Sociologist / HOOKED FINANCE
Powers: Speaks an ancient language, very nosey, always wins at staredowns.
Backstory: She’s very bossy and she tells us what to do. We’re too scared to tell her any different.
David ‘PARKOUR’ Clemens
Species: Super duper Dutch guy / HOOKED STAFF COORDINATOR / SPONSORSHIPS
Powers: Sexiness, coolness, epicness and barefisted drumming.
Backstory: We don't really know. He just showed up and didn't go away.
NEREA 'GASOLINA' WESTEROP
Species: Production Kunoichi / HOOKED PRODUCER
Powers: Yells in Spanish, looks cute but deadly.
Backstory: Flew in from the Canary Islands, does not like the music at our office and is now taking over all of our jobs.
So if you need a hug or a smile, holla at the team!
From our fans
I sold my kidneys for Hooked and I'd gladly do it again!
I'm one of Hooked's many happy customers.
