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!

First impressions from Brazil

Finally I got some video footage for you guys. I used the last weeks to shoot a lot of material together with Jan-Philipp Ehm in and around Cumbuco. Had been a great time with perfect training conditions. I hope you like the outcome!

 
 

 
 

Stay tuned for a longer article about Brazil that is already in the pipeline! Let me know how you think about this video and sharing would be appreciated. Cheers.

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.

Wakeboarding and RBRH

As every year it gets a little bit more quiet on my page, as exams are coming closer and I have to do a lot of things for the university. Luckily this will be my last semester as I am finishing my Bachelor thesis as we speak! So gonna be free for some time soon!

 

Anyways last week I had great conditions on the water with good friends. I had two incredible days on my favorite island Fehmarn. Finally I felt comfortable enough to go for unhooked kiteloops again. My knee is holding perfectly – hamdullah!

 

This weekend was also pretty stuffed, starting with a great RedBull party on Saturday – thanks for the invitation again! On Sunday – quite puzzled hehe – I had the chance to hit the cable again. Grinding some sliders, rocking the kickers and practicing my latest tricks (Blind Judge and Backmobe). I appended some pictures at the end of the article.

 

The next and last stop of the weekend was the RedBull Rising High. Sick action of international pro Wakeboarders, who were getting BIG on this incredible kicker. It was really a unique event with 15000 spectators in the middle of Hamburg. Big kudos to RedBull for making this happen! Enough of the past – check the forecast guys it’s looking great! Time for some action and also gonna produce some videos and pictures soon so stay tuned and rip hard!

 

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!

 

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.
  

Surffestival 2013 Eventvideo

And here it is – my video review of the surffestival 2013 in Pelzerhaken. Sit back and enjoy the 3 minutes of impressions of the festival. For more detailed information about the event check my previous written review. Big thanks to Alex ‘DJ Äläx’ van de Kuck for the music. Stay tuned for my next video about the KST in Damp coming soon!

 

Boarding trip to Ischgl

Just after my last exams I had the opportunity to get off for some nice snowboarding with good friends. We chose the area around Samnaun/Ischgl, which has over 220km of well prepared slopes. The funny thing was, that I stood just once before – in an indoor facility haha – on a snowboard. Anyways I managed to learn this awesome sport quite fast and had a lot of fun with racing down the slopes and shredding in the fun park.

 

A highlight was the big kicker with a air pillow for safe landings behind. It was so much fun to practice all kind of flips and tricks without caring about the landing. Would love such a thing for kite boarding, this would prevent a lot of pain!

 

The weather was pretty nice all the time and we often had around 10 degrees on the mountains, which made riding quite mallow. To sum it up I can just say that i felt in love with this sport and I will for sure come back on  the board as soon as possible! It is just so nice to carve down the mountain or enjoy the rush of adrenalin in the funpark. But now as I am back in northern Germany the forecast for the next days looks quite interesting – a little bit cold and snowy but a LOT of wind. So stay tuned about the upcoming post about my first session on the water this year. Lets get it started!

 

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!
