Slack ‘n’ Wake

Hey there guys, the last time was a little bit quiet again as I was pretty busy getting my university stuff. As we have many seminars and presentations at the moment it is really a lot of work – but anyways still got enough time for some serious indoor climbing, wakeboarding and other funsport acticities like slacklining.

 

Finally my new Elephant Slackline (25m, 35mm) arrived and it is really an awesome toy. I am trying really hard to get better in slacking as it is quite challanging for my coordinative skills. Walkig the 25 m is a pretty hard task! So I went to Raceburg last weekend for an intense 3h slack sesh directly at the lake. You can’t imagine how exhausting it get’s to just walk on a line!

 

Another highlight of the last days was our Wakeboard session, with the surfdudes, yesterday. Pushing it to the max, working a lot on my slider and kicker skills was my main goal, but also refining my railey and backroll to improve the style. Feeling pretty sore now after a 6 hours wake session – but anyway it feels good hehe.

 

And as always doing the normal training in the climbing gym, pushing hard towards the upper 8. UIAA grade. Making very nice progress at the moment and now starting to enhance my training with adding at least one boulder day per week to get more strength and a superior technique. Also took over the youth and adult training and coaching in the “Nordwandhalle” for the next 2 months.

 

So so far for the last time guys. Need to get back to work now and wish you all a nice time. I hope for some wind the next days. So see you at the wall or on the water! Also appended some photos of the last days.
