Much rain, wind and a first place in race at the KLB Dornum

Just minutes after my arrival my car got stuck deeply on the wet camping grass and I had to persevere in a sloping position till Saturday morning. The weather was as the forecast promised with showers of rain and freshen winds the whole day. We started with two races, then the single elimination and upcoming the double was started which took time till the evening because the rain breaks. Unfortunately I had to compete against my Teammate Romain two times. In the Single I endet up third, but the double kicked me back to the fourth Place unfortunately. In the evening most riders came together in the Kites and Coffee Tent as already the evening before. After a Night with even more rain the grasspot was extremely wet Sunday morning, but the rain was gone for the moment so the outstanding three races were started. The slippy ground and gusty wind demanded the riders much. On the upwind courses I could expand my leading and so I won in the race judging once more. In face I was pretty ill i´m really happy with the results and look after this weekend forward to my dry home and a long hot shower.

Zuparken and Hang Em Higher- 7 days Kitesurfing

I had an epic week and I feel exhausted but happy!
Frieday evening I Arrived the “Zuparken” in Kägsdorf which revaled itself directly as an absolutely superb event. The wind this weekend stayed low but kiteble, Saturday we drove a Downwindrace which I ended up top 5, in the evening the partymarathon again and on Sunday afternoon people could test for some hours once more. The weekend faded away cosy on this great spot.
Monday I drove on to Fehmarn and in the evening the Wind was getting up promising and stayed like this the next two days. With the 10m and even the 8m Charger I boosted myself to the 26th floor and rode the waves in both directions and improved my storm skills- epic sessions! The Thursday was still windy but unfortunately it rained the hole day. In Matter of this I Drove on to Cuxhaven, met some not unknown faces on Friday and could continue kitesurfing. Saturday the sams business, just with the contest. Just Sunday the conditions were pretty afflicted. At least, the party didn´t came to short at the hand em higher ;-) .
The forecast for the next two days looks perfect for Wanlo and in three day´s I go to the KLB comp. in Dornum. It´s always blowing somewhere!
I´ve got no photos yet. Sorry for that!

EARTH, WIND and WATER

KLB Masters Dornumersiel- Nice weather and concerts

I woke up in my van at the spot- sun and wind. After a fast breakfast and saying welcome to the lynn team and some others I wanted to go fast onto my board after the past windless times.

On Thursday happened nothing beside the concerts in the evening and Friday were just two funraces holden. Saturday started with two races which I ended up only second with much crashes and in really gusty winds, as already the day before. After this t the high jump contest was started and ongoing freestyle where I passed out in the third heat. Unfortunately team member Caren from UK broke her leg during some buggying- get well soon! Sunday morning I had to start in buggyfreestyle cause I was convinced Saturday night. I went out in the heat against Will from uk, one of the worlds best – so it´s no shame for me I think. The weather didn´t allowed board double´s-rain.

Conclusion: Three and a half great kite days and fine concerts but unfortunately not much competitions.

My second residence- AC AF, backstreet behind the house at the dike in SPO

On Friday i packet the car with a lot of kitestuff and some other fungear and drove off to the Worldcup in SPO. We had a great week there as already the years before! Much wind, even more Kiters, a giant event and at least great party´s and a lot of fun! Wednesday Florian from Berlin came to help me with the Promo. And the week flew by like crazy.

Actually it was my plan to go home after the Worldcup and i also hadn´t packed fot the buggyraces on römö, but much people stayed longer in SPO and i also really enjoyed it there. Luckily i could organize that my buggy was brought to the races on Römö and so i had one more week nearly the same in SPO, just in the Köm and Riff instead of the Worldcup.

On Saturday i drove after really good kitesessions and much fun to the Buggycamp on Römö. The buggybeach welcomed me, as common wet but the wind was good so i went with a bit rain into the danish waves. Unfortunately i received the payback for that much kiting and two weeks with only cheese buns and became sick, but i could cope with that in fact it was not much wind. After some days i was fit again but still not enough wind and a wet beach. I had some sweet landboardsessions and Friday we could drive buggyraces on a dry beach which i won. One day before the beach was still totally wet. Concerning the fact that Römö is dead after 9pm, we had also enough fun in the evening hours.

After one week i went back to SPO and continued then with my tournee resp. One week taking promo tour. I´ve been to Cuxhafen, Schillig, Norddeich, Saaler Bodden, Pepelow, Pelzerhaken, Fehmarn And Laboe. I saw much spots, some of them were really great, the wind was also often on my site and I could also kitesurf by myself. Sunday i drove home from Laboe. After four weeks and some days it´s quite nice to be home. But the day after tomorrow i have to leave again to the KLB Masters in Dornumersiel.

Some pics of the Buggyraces and me with the Stxy during the Worldcup in SPO:

One day and nine hours driving. I can´t believe how much stuff was in my car the last weeks.

First Masterclass- Good Times

I won the Buggyraces on Römö. We drove two light wind races and I ended once 3rd and once first- that was sufficing. At the moment I´m on first place in the judging in Buggyraces and in Boardraces and 4th in Boardfreestyle. Beside this Frank was that kind changing my old Kitesurfboard against an Underground Styx which is really a hot one.- Thanks for the support Frank!

I will be minimum one more week on the move, then I come up here with news from the hole Tour.

Now i´m off to SPO

Tour #1

I arrived Esbjrerg Tuesday the 15th around midday. After taking a look through the city, I reached the ferry just in time. Beach side I directly went Kitesurfing in nice Conditions with the Charger 10. We had really a great week on Fanö with the Team! Every day good winds with much sun, much Kitesurfing and Landboarding and also Freestylebuggying. The racebuggy was also token time to time. One day was stormy and I was with the 10m Charger in winds till 40 knots as powered as never before! The Kite festival is of course also pretty to watch and we hat much fun in the evenings. All in all a really priceless Midsummer Week. Klick for the PL-News Fanö: Klick

Monday I continued driving over Römö to Sylt for the Kitesurfworldcup. Unfortunately the weather changed and we had one week not enough wind for prudent kitesurfing. Westerland is not the city of my Dreams as well, so I spent the most time with Stand up Paddeling in Sylts waves, and watching the cover events, the Bands, the public viewing and enjoying the Party’s.

On Sunday I was pretty happy to continue my trip to SPO.

Unfortunately the weather didn´t change – hot and windless. One day we went to the cable park, the other days were spent only with Buggying. On Friday the most competitors for the buggyraces arrives and with em my new Vapors :-) .

Clock-like to the buggyraces nice kitesurfwinds came on :-/ and my results were also not really fame worth even I won one race. I ended up the Season on the 5th Place, not podium but okay. The PL news from the races in SPO:  Klick

Now I´m happy to be home after three weeks, and I´m going to continue the built out of my van.

See you on Fanö, Römö, Sylt, Kiel or SPO.

Guntram and Sascha catched me up tuesday night and after 45 minutes tetris in the car we packed 3 racebuggys, 2 kiteboards, 1 mountainboard, 3 sets of vapors, some Chargers, a lot of accessories and camping stuff and clothes for 3 persons. Sharp for the first ferry we were in eemshaven. The first days i sepnt on the water and with mountainboarding.

Saturday and Sunday we had delicious Buggyraces on the duny Beach. For me it went well, just the dutchees spoiled me the way to the podium.

Monday then a longer round of car tetris (even more stuff) and drive home.
