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.

 

Surffestival 2013

Just one more day till the biggest surf and SUP festival starts in Pelzerhaken! This year a lot of stuff changed: Delta radio will be responsible for the music and the aftershow partys, there will be a lot of professional and fun SUP contests during the event and my sponsor Chiemsee created the event shirts this year – a rad design!

 You will find me at the Chiemsee tent, where you can register for the beach jump powered by Chiemsee. This will be a 12m high tower from where you can jump on a big air pillow. It doesn’t matter how you hit the pillow it will not hurt. Therefore it is the perfect place for practicing all the stuff you never had the nuts for. The best jumpers get invited to the sundowner jump contests every day!

 

So make sure to be there! Pelzerhaken is just a one hour drive away from Hamburg and it will be the perfect location for action, fun, meeting the pros and partying this weekend. See you there!

Kite and SUP Festival 2012 Review

Oh yea, what a weekend in Pelzerhaken on the second Kite&SUP Festival.The weekend kicked off on Friday with some nice west wind for the 12 in the morning. Had a nice 3 hour kite session before starting to work at the Naish presentation tent at noon. The rest of the day the weather was quite unstable but quite good for Stand up paddling on the flat water. The opening party this day was rather relaxed, as the most people were saving their power for the next days.

 

The Saturday started with nice weather and good conditions to test the new SUP Boards and of course for the SUP challenge contest that crowned the german SUP champions. Later during the day the weather turned better and better and the wind was picking up to more than 5 Bft. Pretty good wind for our big kites. We had the 2013 Fly and Park on the water and saw pretty stoked faces after the people had them in their hands – got some nice feedback. The most amazing thing with the conditions was that we had flatwater and low wind for SUPing at the presentation area and good wind conditions at the kite area – pretty unique conditions for a festival! The bummer this day was for sure the party – warming up with some live music by King and later getting some fire on the dancefloor by DL Äläkz and DJ Marc. You found me behind the bar mixing some sick cocktails for you guys. I saw everybody enjoying the nice vibes of this surfer beach party under the stars.

 

Las but not least we had the Sunday with perfect weather and no wind which as not a big problem, as the most people were kind of dead anyways. The last two party nights had their tribute and you saw a lot of sunglassed people hanging on the beach drinking Red Bull and enjoying the relaxed attitude of a nice summer day at the beach with like-minded people. The day was completely in the sign of testing SUP’s and as a little tip for this season you should have an eye on the Naish One 12,6 inflatable SUP – this brand new toy will crush this year! Taking the inflatables to a new level!

 

Enough talking now, I will add some pictures from my mobile that show some impressions. If you missed this event make sure you join the next

So it has been already one year again. The annual Kite and SUP Festival at Pelzerhaken takes place again from the 7. to 9. of September. I will be there at the beach during the day doing the Naish presentation and at night you will find me and my friends behind our boat bar, mixing some delicious head banging cocktails for you. You will have the opportunity to test the latest 2013 material and at night there will be some sick parties. Kiteboarder, SUPer or just anybody make sure you don’t miss it.

Surffestival 2012

What the heck is going on with the weather? I think the summer finally arrived and fuels us up with nice vibes! The motto of the 2012 Jever surffestival could have been: Wind, Sun and Party. Because this is what we had. The event started with some quite good western wind and gave us the opportunity to have a sportive start in the weekend. The next days where only light winds but a lot of sun – everybody went out doing some SUP sessions or was just hanging out at the beach.

 

I competed in the ION SUP Challenge and made the 4th place at the singles and the 3rd at the relay race. Quite good after those party nights and without any training this year so far. About the parties is not a lot to say – they were amazing! Surfers just know how to have a good time. I was working two days in our “ButtelBoat” as a bar keeper and afterwards right into the party tent and the last day was really special as we had our Chiemsee/Naish party with our own DJ (Alexander “DJ Äläkz” Kuck). He made an awesome job and the crowd was dancing at our station.

 

To put it all in a nutshell, it was a exhausting but perfect weekend and I would like to thank everybody for making this event this unique. I am now looking forward to the Kite and SUP Festival in September and of course to next year.

 

Wet n Wire 2012

There has been an awesome event on the sunny island of Fehmarn – it’s called Wet n Wire and combines a kite contest, a testival and nature conservancy. Because of low wind we riders had to be there for the skippers meeting at the crazy time of 7 in the morning. Just two hours sleep after Heidi’s funky birthday party. Anyways, we were standing there with sleepy eyes watching the wind and checking if we could go for the contest. After quite a time we decided to make it. The best decision ever! Nice stable wind for the 12, not enough for big airs thought but still enough for some decent freestyle.

 

I had the first heat of the day and really crushed! Haven’t been on the water since 3 weeks but anyways I was just in the flow and the most tricks went fine: F16 with handlepass, Sbend to blind pampam and so on. So I fought my way up to the first place and was lucky to win two Nitro Circus tickets for Hamburg.

 

After the action I prepared our Naish presentation material together with Swenja from Kitegirlsrock and had a relaxed afternoon explaining the guys our new material. It was really a pleasure to see this glowing in their eyes, when they came back from the water. Luckily we had a big RedBull truck around to supply us with energy haha. At night we finished this day with a delicious Italian dinner and went to Rappa Nui for the after show party.

 

As the wind was quite low the next day it was more or less chilling at the beach talking to the people and recovering from the day before (you should ask Dennis haha). So what else can I say I will append some pics to give you a little overview about the day. You should although check out the event videos in the video section – they filmed and edited from Julia from Rebel.TV big thanks for the great work. If you want to see the other action pics check them out in my gallery section or on facebook.

 

I am wishing you all a pleasant ride this weekend. Stay tuned as I am preparing a lot of new stories and a big page update soon. Rip it hard and ride safe!
