What´s happened since the buggy WC?

Thursday evening I drove for the last time this year to SPO, because of the buggyraces.

Any training on Friday was dropped because it was windless and rainy.

On Saturday the conditions were much better and in strong offshore winds four Master races and three Open races were held. Even though I like these conditions I had really bad luck and had in every race collisions and folded kites. After a cold night with frozen windows in the bus, we drove Sunday the 5th and last Masterrace in light winds, which I could win. Despite from this the Saturday took me the leading and kicked me to place four.

I stayed for some more days in SPO to take the last passable kitesurf temperatures and to meet other Teamriders. The forecast was promising, so we drove, after a nice landboardsession to Büsum. Unfortunately a friend of me had a really bad kitesurf accident. I wish her all the best, a fast recovery and much energy to become fast fit again. In order that something doesn´t happen again, ill advice all to leaf enough space to all danger spots, especially in the lee. Thats means far more then one line lengths. In case you drift to close, release your kite before you risk your health, also this means some effort. My motivation for kitesurfing was not big after this, but I stayed in SPO for some more days.

After one day home of repairing and preparing I drove Friday morning with Pascal to the first KLB Instructor Course taking place on the kitearea in Münsterappel. We had much to peruse, and that others were kiting in best winds didn´t made it easier for us. After a written exam on Sunday we could finally kite a bit ourself. We didn´t received results yet, but i´m confident to passed it. Then you can gain the KLB licence from me in the near future.

Whats happening next?

At the weekend there´s a back country race on the kitearea, we can kite in Wanlo with increased regularity, which is fresh mowed and in 10 days takes the KLB final place there.
