Surffestival 2013 Review

Last weekend we had the annual surffestival in Pelzerhaken. The event is mainly a big testival and something like a outdoor exhibition. Anyways a lot of people also come around to chill out on the and attend the sick parties at night. After I’ve been there last year at the Naish tent, I was working for my Sponsor Chiemsee this year. We had one of of main attractions at the beach: The Chiemsee SkyJump. A really big landing pad, like a big air pillow, and a crane to jump from. The maximum height was around 12 meters. Pretty amazing feeling and a chance to try out some sick moves without killing yourself.

 

The festival was on from Thursday till Sunday and from day to day more people came and also the parties got wilder! As always it peaked out at the Saturday night party. The weather was quite ok. Mixed conditions with nice sun but sometimes a few rainclouds. The wind was also not too bad at least two days where possible to surf.

 

Furthermore the ION SUP challenge and the German SUP Trophy was held. I was attending the open SUP challenge and was able to reach the second place. I was quite happy with that, as this was the first day on a SUP for me this season and I had my damaged knee. Below are some pictures from Christian Biernath-Wüpping – thanks a lot for sharing. I also got a small video about the festival in the pipeline. It was shot with my new Rollei actioncam and will be ready in a few days.

 

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.

 

Sicily Climbing Trip video

Heya, finally finished the editing of the video material from our trip to Sicily (read more below). We had less footage than expected, but I think the outcome is quite watchable anyways. I hope you like it and as always feedback is much appreciated. Credits for filming go to Rainer alias Lampi and Hartmut.

 

 

I also gave a small interview to kitelife24 in the last days. If you are interested in Kitesurfing, and being a instructor checkout the interview here! I also booked a flight to Egypt or the time from 04.03.2011 to 22.03.2011 to see my friends again and get in shape for this season. I hope I can also present some new pics and vids afterwards.

Climbing Gym in Lübeck

Hey guys, just wanna show you a really cool new project in my hometown Lübeck. My boss, where I am working as a freeclimbing instructor, is right now building a fancy new climbing gym in one of Lübecks traditional gas facilities. Therefore you have kind of history and a awesome atmosphere mixed together with state of the art indoor climbing walls. Even a big boulder area, slackline corner, coffee lounge and  sauna is included. Hell yeah, that’s what was missing in Lübeck. If you want more information just check out http://www.kletterzentrum-luebeck.de – It will open somehow in the first months of 2012.

You would do me and us a big favor if you like these two Facebook pages and maybe share it: Lübeck Climbing gym and Urbanapes. Because I think such good and valuable project deserves some support.
