Summersessions

Wohoo finally the German summer kicks in. Temperatures up to 30 degree and nice thermical winds. I had alot of time on the water the last weeks! First we were lucky and had sick conditions for the trophy in Warnemuende. My first heat was agaians Marian, who literally stomped me. Anyways I am getting into this whole competition thing!

  

Right after the KST I quickly finished one of my last exams and headed directly to St. Peter Ording for the PKRA kite worldcup. And again one day full of perfect wind and sunshine! Epic day with good friends. The event itself and the party was also very mellow. Everybody who was there before knows what I mean, everybody else: Go there net time!

  

Now back in my hometown Luebeck I already enjoyed two awesome shorty session with perfectly stable wind. I also managed to shoot some pics and videos for my summer videos that will come soon! Some of them are appended below the post. Check them out and stay tuned for more!

  

Climbing contest and winter kiting

Finally I managed to spare some time for a new entry. Pretty busy days – stuck learning my ass off for the most important exams of this year. Long days behind my computer learning stuff I probably never need again.

 

Anyways – can’t stay completely without action, so I went out on a really chilly (1° water, 2° air) kitesession at Fehmarn with my brother Finn. Attached a snapshot of a railey below. Just too cold to pull some nice moves. Felt good to be on the water again and soon it will be warm enough to start the season officially.

 

The second thing are the northern german climbing competitions in which I took part. We had to climb an UIAA 8 and 9- … pretty sick stuff for me. My personal goal was in the beginning to not be the last, but I managed to do the 24. place (of 40.), which is just insane! Gonna train harder now and crush the next time. Below You see some pictures of the contest.

 

So there are just a few days left till I go off to Egypt again. Starting the training session 2012 and visiting old friends. I also have a little surprise – just stay tuned and visit my site every now and then. If you are from Germany please sign this petition to save our spots. It is very important for all kiters to create a lobby like this to keep the spots open:  >Here!<
