How I came to kiting
In 1987 I saw the light of day for the first time and already one year later I was sitting on my father's lap at Sylt and discovered the tremendous power of flying a kite. Still on handlebars of wood and 40m ropes i flew my first really oldschool 2-line kites.
A few years later, I got my own first stunt kite. The well-known Speedwing was already in a position to raise my low weight off the ground.
But even then I knew: "I want to fly higher, faster and farther!"
For Christmas I got my first buggy (Peter Lynn, with alloy wheels) and a 2.5m JOJO ET.
I was training with a big troop of riders on the Rhine-Meadows in Dusseldorf.
To date I have gained more experience and try to give these to newcomers so they can experience the fun of kiting on their own.
What could be better than a sport where you can discover the infinite freedom of nature and in additon friendly to our planet.
