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.

 

Egypt 2011

Hey guys, I just arrived back from Egypt. Most of the time we’ve been at the station of SurfMotion in Makadi Bay, which is just an awesome kitespot. It’s outside on an island – constant wind, flat  water and it looks like the Caribbean. Apart of that we visited El Gouna and Soma Bay, which are also must see’s in Egypt. We were very lucky as we had nearly everyday wind – and if there was nothing we had time to dive, play beach volleyball or just to recover.

 

Two weeks of training paid out a lot.  I made really good progress and we shot some nice video and photo material – just check out the gallery and video section. This was my chance to give the 2012 Naish equipment a serious text under heavy conditions. Got to love the Torch and it’s incredible power and stability, but the most I got to love the boards. The Moneyshot, which I ride with Pads and the Arcade, which shines with bindings. You can get a glance at it at the photos.

 

So now my university starts again and the winter kite sessions in Germany are ahead. Stay tuned and see you on the water guys.
