Summersessions

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!

  

Trophy in Warnemuende

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.

Wakeboarding and RBRH

As every year it gets a little bit more quiet on my page, as exams are coming closer and I have to do a lot of things for the university. Luckily this will be my last semester as I am finishing my Bachelor thesis as we speak! So gonna be free for some time soon!

 

Anyways last week I had great conditions on the water with good friends. I had two incredible days on my favorite island Fehmarn. Finally I felt comfortable enough to go for unhooked kiteloops again. My knee is holding perfectly – hamdullah!

 

This weekend was also pretty stuffed, starting with a great RedBull party on Saturday – thanks for the invitation again! On Sunday – quite puzzled hehe – I had the chance to hit the cable again. Grinding some sliders, rocking the kickers and practicing my latest tricks (Blind Judge and Backmobe). I appended some pictures at the end of the article.

 

The next and last stop of the weekend was the RedBull Rising High. Sick action of international pro Wakeboarders, who were getting BIG on this incredible kicker. It was really a unique event with 15000 spectators in the middle of Hamburg. Big kudos to RedBull for making this happen! Enough of the past – check the forecast guys it’s looking great! Time for some action and also gonna produce some videos and pictures soon so stay tuned and rip hard!

 

Waterlining in Lübeck

The summer finally reached Germany. And as every year with good temperatures the wind, which makes us watersport addicts so happy, is vanishing. Anyways there are many other things one can do even if there is no wind at all. For example Stand Up Paddling, Freeclimbing, Wakeboarding or Slacklining. And this is what we did this weekend!

 

I gathered some friends and met at a local lake in Lübeck. We placed a grill, got three slacklines up on the land and strained one over the lake. It was 25m of pure joy to walk this great line and if you fail the refreshing water welcomes you. We even had some great musicians dropping in and enjoyed great life music while slacking, talking and having a cool beer.

 

As the last time I was filming a little bit with my new Rollei Bullet HD and there will be a slack movie pretty soon – so stay tuned and lets hope for some wind soon! Photos are courtesy of Stev Dumröse!

 

Videoreview: KST Damp 2013

As promised in my post about the first trophy stop in Damp I worked on the video review the last days. As we didn’t had the best wind there is not too much action in the video – let us hope for more during the next event. Anyways for everybody, who was not there it is a nice wrap-up of the event. Now sit back and enjoy.

 

Kitesurftrophy Damp 2013

Last weekend the first tour stop of the German Kitesurftrophy (KST) took place in Damp at the Baltic Sea. Unluckily the wind was really bad during the event. The only day with enough wind for freestyle was Sunday and even there the kitesize to ride was between 11 and 15 meters. To make it even worse the wind was slightly offshore and gusty.
  
Anyways I was pretty stoked as this was my first bigger contest and everything was quite new to me. I got to know many nice people and learned a lot about competing in kitesurfing. When it was time for my first heat I was very unlucky as a line of my kite broke right after the start and I was forced to the beach.
  
Check out the images below and stay tuned for a little event video I am just about to cut.

And here it is – my video review of the surffestival 2013 in Pelzerhaken. Sit back and enjoy the 3 minutes of impressions of the festival. For more detailed information about the event check my previous written review. Big thanks to Alex ‘DJ Äläx’ van de Kuck for the music. Stay tuned for my next video about the KST in Damp coming soon!

 

First trophy stop in Damp

So it has been one week since the first big surf event of the season. Next week the contest season in Germany finally starts with the first stop of the KST (Kitesurf Trophy), which is also the Germany championship. I will be there from Friday to Sunday with the intention to compete in Freestyle and just for fun in the race compartment. As the event is also living from it’s spectators I hope a lot of you guys join os on the water and on the beach. The parties are legendary so make sure you don’t miss it!

Unluckily I didn’t have the chance to get on the water the last 7 weeks because of my blow out knee. Therefore I have no clue how my shape is on the water and how well I am able to perform. Anyways it looks like there will be a big storm hitting our coast on Wednesday and Thursday. And as I got university holidays I have the chance to get two days of training just before the event. Lets see whats possible and maybe the break was good for my body to recover from the intense training before. So save the date and see you in Damp next weekend!
