Nice conditions at home

Image
It is unusually cold in northern Germany these days. But that seems to help with the wind. Yesterday was one of those perfect stormy summer days. One of those days, after a long spell without wind when you do not expect much only to be rewarded with nearly perfect conditions. Thanks to Markus for taking these pictures.

German Championships Sylt - Multivan Windsurf Cup 2017

After four intense days on the water with loads of heats sailed, I finished second in freestyle, shared fifth in waves and shared fourth overall. I could have done way better in the freestyle final but was exhausted after a long day, which had started with the wave discipline in the early morning at 6.30 and only ended at around 6 in the afternoon.
The contest was very professionally organized and it was good to sail in Westerland again. I hope to do better in the future and am motivated to push my level further.

SUP-Session in Pozo

Instead of spending low-wind days off the water, stand-up paddling can be a nice way of staying fit and enjoying the ocean at the same time. Here are some photos from a recent session in tiny waves.

Baltic Wave Winter Session

After months of rather low winds we finally got some proper conditions in. The sun was out all day and the wind was just right for 3.7 and 4.0. I windsurfed all day. There were many people out but it was all good. Here are some photos shot by Tom Koehn photography.
