Everay Day is a Super Kite Day – that’s what my motto is about! Since I was a little boy my father teached me in how to fly a kite. After some training on 2-line & 4-line kites is was introduced into the buggy kiting by Peter Rieleit, a famous kite shop owner in Düsseldorf. I was making big advantages and heading up my first racing contest in 2005. Managing the 1st place overall in German Open Class and Eurocup Open Class was really stoked. Than I started making my first steps on a kitelandboard. I quickly recognized that this was the sport I was looking for.
German Freestyle Champion 2007 and 2010. After some quite hard crashes and injures I decided to cancel competing in competitions. Since that I’m concentrating in media work, customer support, etc. Since 2 years I’m riding for „Flysurfer Kiteboarding“. They are producing the best kites for me to push the sport to new levels…
