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!

 

It’s Spring time!

It has been quite a time since my last post, because I was really busy with my exams after I came back from Egypt. Quite tough to have 3 in a week after the long time of relaxing! But the learning paid out – anyways we had some decent wind the last weeks for some action on the water. We had all kinds of conditions – really strong wind and some more quiet days for the big kites. But one thing turned out very fast: Germany is not Egypt – the wind is a lot more gusty and the cold weather makes things a lot harder. Many tricks I was doing safe there are not working at the moment, which is very disappointing. Therefore I had to make a really hard decision: I will not participate in the first two tour stops of the trophy as I cannot get enough training because of the university. I will focus on training to join the last stop on Fehmarn.

 

In Egypt I made some good progress like landing some Backmobes, Blind Judges, 313, Double S-Bends to Blind and so on, but here the things don’t go as I like – therefore this is my logical consequence. Sooo this was the bad part of my news, now back to better things: The Spring is coming in big steps and with it more outdoor activities. I have some really cool climbing trips ahead (Frankenjura, Norway, Spain), bought a slackline finally and as I am bound to Hamburg at the moment trying to train a lot for the next climbing competition!

 

Also wanna remind everybody of the surffestival in Pelzerhaken next month – this will be a big party and hangout event for everybody. Don’t miss it! In my Gallery section you will find a little flavor of my last trip to Egypt – finally had some time to go through 28GB of pics and videos. Some more will come soon. And on Sunday I will have my first halfmarathon in Hamburg. Registration is still open – who ever is interested shoot me a message!

Surfing the baltic sea again

Hey dudes, I’m back to Germany now and just had the first kitesession at my favorite spot Wulfener Hals. Quite stable winds ,really nice Flatwater and the topping is offshore wind. Had a chance to work on my freestyle skills – even so it was much worse than in Egypt just because of the cold temperature and the neoprene. Anyways Nina was so nice to join us and she took a couple of pretty nice pics.

 

Check them out below my post or in my gallery.  I am also working on the new video, which will be ready next week. So stay tuned!
