Kickstarting my world trip

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.

 

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!

 

Season 2012 opening in Egypt

Finally found some time to write this post. The last days were very busy with visiting friends, kiting, making photos and of course relaxing a lil bit from the exam stress. In the begining the wind was quite low and we had time to visit the pyramids – I can just advice everybody to see this impressive structures once! We had a awesome hotel just at the entrence, out of our windows we could look in the Sphinx’s eyes.

 

When we arrived back to Hurghada the wind came back. Riding two nice days at the station of Tommy Friedl, my former working place, made a good start in a from now on windy holiday. After this  we settled over to Kitegarden, a new Kitehostel and station managed by Tanja and Wael. Nice people, a lot of wind and a cool spot – from our hotelroom to the water not more than 10 meter. Wael made a lot of nice pics and videos, I just need the time to get through the material. A spotreport will come soon, but I can really recommend this place!

 

The last days I was hanging out at Makadi Bay, while the wind is still getting stronger every day. In the evening hanging out with old friends having a shisha and a lot of fresh juice. Life is quite ok like this hehe. When I finally find some more time I will post more and try to find some more photo material.

 

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.
