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.
  

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!

 

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!
