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.

Flatwater paradise: Wulfen

Winter is finally over in Germany and the temperatures are rising again. I had again some good sessions on the baltic sea to prepare for the upcoming season. An outstanding one was on flatwater paradise Wulfen. Niels Jende came there with me and took some nice pictures. Stable eastern wind, flat water, empty spot – the perfect session. You can find a lot more pictures in my gallery section. Also got some bad news: Damaged my knee a little bit. Butnothing too serious – it will just knock me out for 4 more weeks. Inshalla! Gonna wrap this story in my next post!

 

Nordwandhalle summer party

Finally the summer arrived and therefore it is gonna be celebrated at the biggest climbing walls in norther Germany. Saturday we will kick off with a Bouldercontest “Elbmoves”, I will also participate to check how far I can reach my poor boulder skills. Later there will be a live band and a grill session – sound pretty mellow.

Sunday will be a big slack line event, with slack pros and different types of lines. As I am pretty much into slacking  at the moment, I am curious to test the different lines and get some tips from the good guys! Later this day there will be the Reel Rock Tour and we will have the chance to watch sick climbs and supreme action.

 

So this is how a weekend should be … I hope to see some of you guys over there.

The days get shorter …

Hey there guys just came back from a windy weekend. The Saturday session was pretty epic – big winds for huge jumps and sick loops.I had a blast on the water with 6 windsurfers. Don’t know where all the kiters have been.The conditions where quite nice for Pelzerhaken – little bit overpowered with my 7, a nice breaking wave and flatwater. To put it in a nutshell: Just a cool day and not too cold. Anyways Sunday was really shitty – when we rode to the beach a crazy storm appeared with 10 degree temperature drop, lightning and ice rain. The wind was very unstable and gusty. Therefore we decided to get back home in the warm.

 

I think the season will be officially over for me, as the winter now really starts. It gets a lot colder and starts snowing these days. Therefore I will start my winter training: Indoor freeclimbing, boxing and training in the gym to start well trained in the season 2012. If I look at this year I have to say it was quite nice – many days of wind and a lot of progression for me. So let’s see what this year has left for us.

Stormchase!

Wow the last weekend was really charming, loads of wind and quite warm. The season is definitely not over! I had two cool days – the first was in Pelzerhaken with moderate wind to start with some freestyle on my 9 and after it picked up it was pretty nice for loops. The second day was crazy – we went to Gold on Fehmarn and had some really big big winds (gusts up to 11 bft / 50+ knts) and rain. It was a quite challenging big air session. Didn’t have the balls to loop my 7 .

 

And the best thing is that we have a lot more windy days coming . Probably the whole weekend we will have superb conditions to kite the baltic sea. So lets hope we also have some nice weather with it to make some pics and vids. Stay safe guys and see you on the water .
