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!

 

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!<
