Our sixth candidate for the beach hunk/babe of the year election is Nino. He works at Beachhouse Kijkduin, the newest addition to the seaside resort. Nino is 22 years old, loves football, can always be found outside and is also usually at work. He has been working since his on the beach, first at Habana Beach. Nino worked briefly at a supermarket but that was not for him.
What do you like about working on the beach?
“That time really flies by here. I remember that at the supermarket, where I used to work, four hours really seemed to pass. And here I sometimes work twelve hours in a row and then I didn’t notice it at all.” In addition, he also enjoys working on the beach because of the team he works with. “It’s always fun, not only during work but also afterwards. Sometimes we go out together after work or have dinner.”
What do you dislike about working on the beach?
“Some days it can be very busy. No matter how hard you all work together, it really does seem like you never have enough staff. And in the summer, days like this often occur in succession.” And Nino also says: “It is very difficult to be free when the weather is nice, I know how hard my colleagues have to work and I always feel guilty about that.”
What do you like the best kind of guests? And what do you think are the less nice guests?
“I like it when customers are up for a chat, are interested in who I am and how long I work here, for example.”
Nino says about the less pleasant customers: “For me, these are often the impatient, somewhat bolder customers. If it is very busy, it can sometimes take a little longer. I can’t stand it very well if customers become agitated and rude because of this. I try to ask for understanding because of the situation, but unfortunately that doesn’t always work.”
What is the nicest compliment you have ever received?
“The best thing is when customers look at me in amazement when I clear a table of eight in one go. I now have a lot of catering experience, so I’m pretty good at clearing a table efficiently. I can do some lifting, I know the balance balance so it always goes well with stacking. That’s why I get the most compliments on that.”
What do you do for an extra tip?
“I try to provide good care to the guests. If they sit down at a table that has not yet been cleared, clear it immediately. Pour wine or water when the glasses are empty, start a conversation with the guests if they are open to it. That is just that extra bit of care and I see that reflected in the tip they give.”
What is the best thing you can order on the menu here? ?
“I like meat, so for me the picanha steak is the best, with some fries on the side. We have a new menu since this week, but I haven’t been able to taste it all yet.”
Why do you want Indebuurt Beachhunk
” I am a hard working guy and I have been working on the beach for years. Because I live only ten minutes away from here, I can always be found on the beach. I actually just deserve it.”
