Riding the Homespot – Rheinwiese Düsseldorf Oberkassel

It was a long time ago i was riding on land at my homespot. Last Weekend i had some time and good wind from the right direction to go out for a little session on my 15m Speed IV Lotus.

Check out a selection of some sweet pictures we have made. Thanks to Chris for holding the cam. 😉


Ijmuiden Write-Up & Pictures – Flymasters 2015

Last weekend I was on the road to Holland for the final and last run of the European Champions 2015 in Ijmuiden.

It was clear that i will have no chance to get on the overall podium in the race contest, but after winning in Berlin i was really motivated to compete again.

The weather forecast has been not so bad. 12-17 knots from the sea for the Saturday.

The Freestylecontest should start first were i entered spontaneously. I wasn’t that well prepared but tried to have some fun. In The first heat against Jeroen P. from Holland I was able to win with some sweet rotations and long long hangtime due to a little overpower on my 18m Sonic Fr by Flysurfer Kiteboarding. But then i was out against Joey O. who was showing some nice and technical newschool riding.

After the contest Pascal, Emmanuel and me took some time to have a filming session with the DJI for a video- and photshooting. The pics you can see above. Video is coming soon on this page…

Next day we started only 1 Race because of very light wind conditions. Everyone was out on his biggest kite. The judges decided to put junior, seniors and veterans in one race.

With some really close fighting with the no-wind I became 3rd overall and 2nd in the senior class after Pascal L. on 1st and Julian H. on 2nd.

All in all it was a really nice event. Looking forward for the next season and hope to see you all soon!

KLB Open Berlin Tempelhof 2015

Last weekend were the KLB Open 2015 @ Berlin Tempelhof. It has been my first time to be at Berlin, so i was a bit excited. Arriving Friday night at my friends flat next to the Tempelhof we had some beers and went to bed to be fit for the next day. The forecasts for the next two days weren’t that good but the weather should be super nice with much sun and 20°C around the clock.

Spontaneously i entered the racing contest after a break of almost 5 years in order to compete against my big friend Pascal Lohmann.

The first places for the final round of the race have been already set from the last event at France, so i had to go through a qualification heat. Wind was perfect for my 18m Sonic by Flysurfer Kiteboarding. After a racing time of 10minutes finished with a great 1st place. That was motivating for the next two final heats. What a great day for me that i finished all my heats 1st for an overall 1st place at the event. So great to be back on top of the podium.

There was also enough wind to run the Freestyle comps for the Juniors and Seniors! What a great level & fun to see the guys rocking the grass.

Big compliments and thanks to the organizers from the KLBA who had a lot of work to do!

Looking forward for the next year. I hope i can make it again to Berlin.

Here are some photos and a video i shot during the senior freestyle comps…

Throwback to Mallorca 2015

This year was an amazing time at the island again. Having super warm water around 29°C and pure sun for almost everyday. The wind was strong enough to have a session almost everyday. Perfect conditions for testing my new Sonic Fr & Boost by Flysurfer Kiteboarding.

It was really cool to see my girlfriend Christin training hard and making her first meters on the water.

We’ve filmed some cool footage and i’m in the middle of editing right now. So keep sure to check this site when it’s been released soon.

I’m sad that i lost most of my action shots due to a saving fail…so here are only a few impressions with no hang time…
