Finally everything in Germany is done. I successfully finished my thesis and therefore also my studies. The last days in Germany were so great, as the weather was quite good for autumn and I had my big goodbye party with around 150 great guests. There were also sick events like the RedBull Coast2Coast and the Pangea festival, where I hit some sick kickers.
Now I finally am in paradise! Chilling in Uruau, Brazil. Enjoying the wind and the flatwater lagoon and working on my tricks a lot! The people staying here are just awesome and we are having a blast on the water or at the cosy local restaurants. Take tis post and pictures as a little appetizer! There will be a lot more soon. I just need to get everything sorted. Stay tuned.

The summer in Germany is one of the best I remember. We had so much great weather and most important a lot of wind! This is very untypical for Germany, as wind comes typically with storms, rain and cold temperatures. Another great aspect this year are all the great events. I have been to a watersport event every weekend till the summer began. German kite championship, Surffestivals, SUP contests, Waterline sessions and fun events like dragonboat races. All this and my Bachelorthesis keep me busy as hell, so sorry for not writing the last weeks guys.
Anyways I managed to push myself on SUPing a lot this summer. Made the first place on the SUPerflavour trophy in the fitness class and qualified for the worldcup in Hamburg. There I paddled on the second place in the celebrity team race and managed to get on the 5. place in the fitness class sprint and long distance race.
More news about my upcoming travel project and the final summer wrapup with many pictures and videos will come soon! So stay tuned and get out in the sun guys.

Finally it is the day and I am happy to announce my upcoming travel project starting mid September. I will be one year around the best kitespots of the world. Kiting every day, training, teaching and enjoying life to it’s fullest after my studies. Luckily I was able to win some great sponsors for this project. Big thanks to Chiemsee, sun and fun, Naish, Prolimit, Rollei actioncam, Pixelheimat, Clif Bar/Lifebrands and RipRope. Of course I would also like to thank my family(!), friends and supporters for everything.
During the next days I will launch a big giveaway to everybody liking my Facebook page. So make sure you don’t miss it. More information about the giveaway and the project coming soon, so stay tuned and have a great weekend guys!
Breeding heat in my hometown Luebeck and I luckily got some time to meet up with friends. Therefore we started another funny waterline jamsession at a local lake. This time a friend of mine took his camera equipment with him and we made some funny videos and pictures. As it turned darker the idea was born to have a little night flash photo session. Interested how it turned out? Then check out the images attached below. The videos will be shown in my summer mashup coming soon!
This summer in Germany is one of the best summers we had since a long time. Quite a few windy days and extremely good weather. This was also the case last weekend were I was on the Beachsportfestival on Fehmarn. The whole event was about a big SUP testival, the german slackline championships and a stop of the Superflavour German SUP Challenge. I was there with our inflatable Naish boards and had a good time talking to happy testers, customers and interested people.
As the SUP Challange took place I got some time off from work to participate. Surprisingly I managed to crush my opponents and made a clear win on the course race in the mens fitness class. I was super stoked to win this event and even got a wildcard for the SUP Worldcup in Hamburg. Let’s see what I can do there with some really good paddlers.
The next upcoming event will be Standup4Kids next weekend. Would be cool to see you there supporting this charity event. So if you got some time come around for some action or a chat!
Wohoo finally the German summer kicks in. Temperatures up to 30 degree and nice thermical winds. I had alot of time on the water the last weeks! First we were lucky and had sick conditions for the trophy in Warnemuende. My first heat was agaians Marian, who literally stomped me. Anyways I am getting into this whole competition thing!
Right after the KST I quickly finished one of my last exams and headed directly to St. Peter Ording for the PKRA kite worldcup. And again one day full of perfect wind and sunshine! Epic day with good friends. The event itself and the party was also very mellow. Everybody who was there before knows what I mean, everybody else: Go there net time!
Now back in my hometown Luebeck I already enjoyed two awesome shorty session with perfectly stable wind. I also managed to shoot some pics and videos for my summer videos that will come soon! Some of them are appended below the post. Check them out and stay tuned for more!
Finally it is time for the next stop of the Kitesurftropy (KST). The KST is the official German championship for kitesurfing and the participants battle it out in four stops throughout the season. The second stop this year will be in Warnemuende on the upcoming weekend.
The good news is that there is also a big sailing event with life music and some good parties. The bad news is that the wind looks kind of odd. Maybe we get some Wind on Sunday – we will see. I am happy to see all the people again and encourage everybody to come around for a talk and hopefully some action!
RedBull is going nuts again! After the great Rising High wakeboard event in Hamburg the next big project is the so called Coast2Coast race from Niobe on Fehmarn to Denmark and back. Round about 40km of open water action on the rough baltic sea! Around 200 racers will battle it out to win a great trip to Hawaii with my boss Robby Naish.
As I already got some pre infos I was eagerly waiting for the release of this event. It will be so awesome to race with so many kiters on my home spots.As the registration is free and open for everyone you are highly welcome to join us! I hope to see ya all there guys.
