After years of just riding a surfboard for kitesurfing I got a new twintip in my hands. My friend Mario Rodwald just launched his own kiteboard brand KOLD shapes. For me it’s the perfect board, because I suffered with some knee issues in the past and most of the boards I tried where too stiff and after a while in bumpy waters I felt a little pain. But with my new … Continue reading
In April 2018 I flew for the first time to Costa Rica to check what it’s all about. The beauty and kindness of the people is just amazing and I’ll come back for sure. Here are some impressions from our surf trip…
The 2017 edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race from Lanzarote to Grenada was a long one. It took us 13 days and a bit including 6 days of upwind sailing. But we made it and 5th over the line is not too bad.
The Extreme Sailing Series™ is in Hamburg, Germany right now for their 5th event of the 2017 season. All teams are fighting against the tricky conditions including very light winds, lots of rain and a big current on the river Elbe.

First stop was a little place called Piha, it’s just 40 minutes out of Auckland on the westcoast. Good surfing beach with lefts and rights which can get quiet big with lots of current. The surf was good but the lodge where fully … Continue reading

It still feels like a bad dream… All our hard work & effort from the last 1.5 years where destroyed after just a few minutes after the start of the Sydney – Hobart 2015.

Due to … Continue reading
