Fuck winter, go kiting!

Welcome to another episode of my fuck winter series. This time I went out for some Kite sessions. The coldest was in -2 degree (feels like -15° with windchill). I had two great days with Josè and Niels, who took pictures. Friday we went out in Haffkrug enjoying a big incoming swell with strong eastern winds. It was perfect for using the waves as kickers for my tricks or just looping till the adrenalin was pumping.

 

Saturday the crew met again in Pelzerhaken. Enjoying the comfort of a warm shower while getting into the neoprene stuff. The water was empty and we had a lot of wind. Perfect conditions …. apart from the fucking coldness. I managed to land a lot of tricks I learned the end of last year, like Back To Blind, Blind Jugde, 313 and even some Back Mobes. This is a pretty nice start for the season and I am looking forward to the upcoming contests!

 

After these we had some more sessions, which where always the same: Strong eastern wind, very cold, sunny and empty spots. I actually managed to get 8 days on the water during the last two weeks. This is what I call a season kickstarter. Who needs Egypt or Capetown? Go out and train guys. The conditions are perfect!

 

The next episode will be about some SUP action so stay tuned! We will go for a little session around the old town of Lübeck as soon as the wind drops, until then you will find me shredding on the baltic sea. If you wanna join shoot me a message it is so empty on the water haha.

 

Fuck Winter, go snowboarding!

The sun was shining again and you can wear a T-Shirt if there is no wind. Anyways the snow is still there and as soon as the wind pics up it feels like winter. And what can you do during winter? Exactly some snowboarding – in our case urban boarding. I met with some friends, two slacklines, snowboards shovels and a couple of beer in Lübeck for a little kicker session in a park.

 

It was pretty amazing, the “normal” people where sledding down the small hill, while some of us were on the 25m Slackline or jumping over the kicker. Even if the hill was not too steep the kicker was high enough to get you one or two meters up in the air. It was so amazing to get on the board again and even more amazing if you realize where you are – directly in the city.

 

We managed to take some pictures of the event. Next time we will be up for some sizling cold SUP action through our icy canals in Lübeck and I planned a kitesurfing photoshoot with Niels Jende this week. And be prepared for the big SurfCenter party on thursday. Follow me on Facebook if you wanna join our next events. Take care guys, you can find me on the water during till Wensday – the forecast looks good.
