Kickstarting my world trip

Finally everything in Germany is done. I successfully finished my thesis and therefore also my studies. The last days in Germany were so great, as the weather was quite good for autumn and I had my big goodbye party with around 150 great guests. There were also sick events like the RedBull Coast2Coast and the Pangea festival, where I hit some sick kickers.

 

Now I finally am in paradise! Chilling in Uruau, Brazil. Enjoying the wind and the flatwater lagoon and working on my tricks a lot! The people staying here are just awesome and we are having a blast on the water or at the cosy local restaurants. Take tis post and pictures as a little appetizer! There will be a lot more soon. I just need to get everything sorted. Stay tuned.

 

Big travel Project

Finally it is the day and I am happy to announce my upcoming travel project starting mid September. I will be one year around the best kitespots of the world. Kiting every day, training, teaching and enjoying life to it’s fullest after my studies. Luckily I was able to win some great sponsors for this project. Big thanks to Chiemsee, sun and fun, Naish, Prolimit, Rollei actioncam, Pixelheimat, Clif Bar/Lifebrands and RipRope. Of course I would also like to thank my family(!), friends and supporters for everything.

Waterlining the second

Breeding heat in my hometown Luebeck and I luckily got some time to meet up with friends. Therefore we started another funny waterline jamsession at a local lake. This time a friend of mine took his camera equipment with him and we made some funny videos and pictures. As it turned darker the idea was born to have a little night flash photo session. Interested how it turned out? Then check out the images attached below. The videos will be shown in my summer mashup coming soon!

 

Beachsportfestival Fehmarn

 

This summer in Germany is one of the best summers we had since a long time. Quite a few windy days and extremely good weather. This was also the case last weekend were I was on the Beachsportfestival on Fehmarn. The whole event was about a big SUP testival, the german slackline championships and a stop of the Superflavour German SUP Challenge. I was there with our inflatable Naish boards and had a good time talking to happy testers, customers and interested people.

 

As the SUP Challange took place I got some time off from work to participate. Surprisingly I managed to crush my opponents and made a clear win on the course race in the mens fitness class. I was super stoked to win this event and even got a wildcard for the SUP Worldcup in Hamburg. Let’s see what I can do there with some really good paddlers.

 

The next upcoming event will be Standup4Kids next weekend. Would be cool to see you there supporting this charity event. So if you got some time come around for some action or a chat!

 

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!

  

Trophy in Warnemuende

Finally it is time for the next stop of the Kitesurftropy (KST). The KST is the official German championship for kitesurfing and the participants battle it out in four stops throughout the season. The second stop this year will be in Warnemuende on the upcoming weekend.

 

The good news is that there is also a big sailing event with life music and some good parties. The bad news is that the wind looks kind of odd. Maybe we get some Wind on Sunday – we will see. I am happy to see all the people again and encourage everybody to come around for a talk and hopefully some action!

RedBull Coast2Coast

RedBull is going nuts again! After the great Rising High wakeboard event in Hamburg the next big project is the so called Coast2Coast race from Niobe on Fehmarn to Denmark and back. Round about 40km of open water action on the rough baltic sea! Around 200 racers will battle it out to win a great trip to Hawaii with my boss Robby Naish.

 

As I already got some pre infos I was eagerly waiting for the release of this event. It will be so awesome to race with so many kiters on my home spots.As the registration is free and open for everyone you are highly welcome to join us! I hope to see ya all there guys.

Now sit back and enjoy.

First trophy stop in Damp

So it has been one week since the first big surf event of the season. Next week the contest season in Germany finally starts with the first stop of the KST (Kitesurf Trophy), which is also the Germany championship. I will be there from Friday to Sunday with the intention to compete in Freestyle and just for fun in the race compartment. As the event is also living from it’s spectators I hope a lot of you guys join os on the water and on the beach. The parties are legendary so make sure you don’t miss it!

Unluckily I didn’t have the chance to get on the water the last 7 weeks because of my blow out knee. Therefore I have no clue how my shape is on the water and how well I am able to perform. Anyways it looks like there will be a big storm hitting our coast on Wednesday and Thursday. And as I got university holidays I have the chance to get two days of training just before the event. Lets see whats possible and maybe the break was good for my body to recover from the intense training before. So save the date and see you in Damp next weekend!
