it's a blog
Nice to check out Bali for a change.
Not the kind of kitesurfing trips I usally do but instead a proper surf trip.
Nice to get to know from which sport it all started.
It's nice to remember where you travelled.
So sometimes you write down what you experienced to remember it even better. This time I had the opportunity to write a whole article about the months in OZ and to publish it in the latest issue of "Kiteboarding".
Nice to see those 8 pages on glossy paper.
My Teammate Christian Brill and I having a nice little session in St. Peter Ording.
End of season in Australia so it's time to hit some obstacles in Thailand.
Whoa, what a weekend. We had so much fun down south in Augusta.
Everyone was just busy hitting the perfectly flat water. So unfortunatly no action shots.
But enjoy a beautiful moonrise over the river!
Same procedure as every year? Not quite! This time newyears turned out to be truly memorable.
Check out the crew hitting our self built kicker.
Summer in Germany can be quite chilly.
Still we are always having a good time here.
My Sister and I travelled to South Africa last march. Have a look at the footage!
This is a short meshup of my existing footage from South Africa.
winter is coming!
Here is one of the last pictures without shoes and gloves this year.

Thank you very much. Here ist the Link for the interview.
This Weekend we had the fourth Kiteloop Contest ever here in Laboe.
Saturday we had really nice conditions, and I learned a lot. I almost landed a L3 and I'm close to a Frontmobe.
For a few times I was lit on my 10 and I tried some high hooked kiteloops.
That's probably the reason why I was able to win the KLC 08 with the "highest Kiteloop".
So this was a nice event. I hope next year it's going to be as awesome as this weekend or even better. We'll see.
Here you can see a few pictures.
And here's the link to more Pictures
I'm back from the German Championship and the Kitesurftrophy 08 in St. Peter-Ording. And first of all: Yes Dudes, I made the third place in the "Juniors"
It was a very nice Event and it was great to see all the other guys again, although the last time wasn't long time ago.
So the first day, there was "no wind".
Tim Kummerfeld, Christian Brill and the other guys took me to a "secret spot" for east-wind. Its was great. The wind was offshore, and there was no wave. It was warm and I was able to ride for 4 hours in my boardshort. I just did all my wakestyletricks, grabbed back to blind, switch to blidn and so on.
The next day we started Race but just for women and men. But in the evening there was a huge tide-way and we all were able to do our best tricks in front of the viewers. I made some huge double-Sbends and a grabbed back to blind. Also I made a very nice backmobe, but I didnt land it. The wind was perfect for my 10.
The next day the single elimintaion in freestyle started. I lost against Tim Kummerfeld in the second heat. Stefan was able to get up to the second place.
In the evening I went very tired and sick. So I wasn't able to make party. I slept for 10 hours and at Sunday I was still a little bit sick and tired.
However, the double elimination started. And I went on further and further until I had my heat for the third place against Florian Staben. I won.
The next heat was against Felix Sorou. I lost my board after 3 minutes and the tide took it under the restaurant there. So I lost.
Tim was able to beat Felix again with a huge and impressive L3, so he made the first place. I feel very happy for my Teammate Tim Kummerfeld. Congratulation.
Stefan Permien lost against Mario Rodwald so he made the second place. However it's a big thing and that's awesome. Of course, Congratulation for Mario.
For the women it was very exciting again but in the end Sabrina Lutz was able to keep her title as the german champion.
Nice one Sabrina.
For me, the third place in the "Juniors" is very cool. It is my first year in the KST and my first german championship. The conditions were very hard, but I gave the best and won a lot of heats. It was awesome. Also the tricks at the Juniors go on and on. Al lot of people can do backmobe, Kgb, Kiteloophandlepass and Slimchance. So it's not very easy anymore.
