Kitesurftrophy in Damp
At least the new season of the German Kitesurftrophy has started five days ago. The first day (saturday) we didn't have any wind so that I decided to go wakeboarding. The day after we could start Freestyle event. unfortunately the wind dropped down in the semi final so that I ended up on the first place with three more competitors.

Check out my new video! My summer started on the world cup in St.Peter-Ording where I had an awesome time with the core-team and all the nice person who visited core. Unfortunately I injured my right knee so that I had to leave earlier. First I got very sad because I didn't know for how long I have to pause but due to our good friend and doctor Dr.Meißner I could get back on the water after two weeks. After this small injury I was very motivated and started to learn new tricks like a slim chance or a frontmobe.PS: Please watch it in HD
no wind on Fehmarn
Unfortunately there was now ind on the last Kitesurftrophy stop on Fehmarn so that we just had one judgement for the german championship. As you can read in my older updates this judgement was the stop in Holnis where I ended up on the second place. All in all it was a great season with my friends and I am super stoked to be the vice-master 2012.
Interview in the "Kite" magazin
Hey guys , Sorry for the late update but I had no chance to get on the internet. Check out the new edition of the german "KITE" magazin, there is an interview with me about my life as a Kitesurfer.
Kitesurftrophy in Holnis
The last week the second tourstop of the german Kitesurftrophy took place. The event was in Holnis, a rather good place for Kitesurfing because we had the chance to ride the competion althoungh we had two different wind directions at two different days. At the first day the startetd the singles in which I ended up on the second place. In the semi final I could establish myself against Jakob Kiebler. In the final I had to ride against Linus Erdmann and I was very exhausted of the heats before so that I nearly landed nothing. All in all I am content with it and hope that there will be some wind on Fehmarn, the last stop.

Competion in Damp
Finally the doctor gave me the permission to take part into the german Kitesurftrophy with a taped finger although my finger was still injured. When we arrived in Damp it was a great feeling to meet all the people from the last season. Unfortunately we hadn't got much wind so that me and seven other rider ended up with the first place. I hope for more wind in Flensburg and Fehmarn Here you can find some photos of the Kitesurftrophy in Damp
Shit happens! Last friday I was at a birthday party standing in the door when suddenly the door was banged and my small finger was still there. First it didn't hurt that much but when it didn't get better I decided to go to the doctor this morning who said that the finger is broken. I'll have an appointment at friday because at the upcoming weekend the german Kitesurf-Trophy will start and I really want to take part in it but at the moment my participation is at risk.
As I mentioned I spent some days of my holidays in Egypt. It was one of the best Kite-holidays I've ever had because of the epic conditions. Futhermore I got to know some nice people , learned some new tricks like a 315 so that I was satisfied with my progress. The last five days I travelled to Tarifa to train in some choppy conditions which was really helpful for the upcoming German Championchip which will start on the 28. of april in Damp. The holiday movie "Easter movie 2012" will take some time to cut so I think I'll upload it in two weeks . Beacause of a lot of video material I havent't got that much Kite photos but here you can see some of Spain and I hope that I can add some photos soon , too.
