Video Episode 1: Brazil

Sorry guys that it has been so quiet the last month on this page. I was traveling through Peru and Bolivia with a really bad internet reception on the way. Anyways I got some action prepared for you! Finally finished the editing of my first video episode covering Brazil. So lights out and movie on!

 
 

 
 

I hope you enjoyed this little episode and if you liked it I would be grateful for some likes and shares to spread the love. I arrived in Capetown now and got a lot better reception. So stay tuned for more stuff coming up!

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!

  

Waterlining in Lübeck

The summer finally reached Germany. And as every year with good temperatures the wind, which makes us watersport addicts so happy, is vanishing. Anyways there are many other things one can do even if there is no wind at all. For example Stand Up Paddling, Freeclimbing, Wakeboarding or Slacklining. And this is what we did this weekend!

 

I gathered some friends and met at a local lake in Lübeck. We placed a grill, got three slacklines up on the land and strained one over the lake. It was 25m of pure joy to walk this great line and if you fail the refreshing water welcomes you. We even had some great musicians dropping in and enjoyed great life music while slacking, talking and having a cool beer.

 

As the last time I was filming a little bit with my new Rollei Bullet HD and there will be a slack movie pretty soon – so stay tuned and lets hope for some wind soon! Photos are courtesy of Stev Dumröse!

 

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.
  

Knee update: Recovery

It has been over four weeks till I hurt my knee on that crash while kiting. As the days pass by luckily it gets better and better everyday. I got rid of the crunches and got a nice new orthesis in which I can walk again and do some reha sport. The only good thing about this whole injury is that I can finally give my body some rest he really needed! I was always pushing a little bit too much and forget about recovery. The other good thing is that I am now forced into the gym – boring weightlifting is the only sport I am was able for the last weeks. Anyway it is always good to build up some basic strength and work on the misbalances a little bit.

 

The sun also returned in Germany and I had some great days chilling with good friends in the sun, having some barbecues or just getting in the kayak for a paddle session. Pretty mallow!

 

However I am very keen to hit the water again! The doc says I will be able to kite again in two weeks – just in time for the first stop of the Trophy in Damp! I am very very happy about that fast recovery and really look forward to pushing it again this season!!! Stay tuned for some announcements and insider news about the surffestival in Pelzerhaken the next days. Now go out guys and enjoy this great weather. Aloha!
