Bel Air to blind


6 days ago I landed my first Bel Airs and Bel Air to blinds at my homespot in Bel Air (funny ha!), but didn’t get them on video. Then I went to Denmark for the LF Germany and Denmark Team Weekend reunion, which was super well organized, thanks to MJ and Tom. The wind was too light on Friday and Saturday, which gave us time to rebuild an old kicker and build a 12m long box. On Sunday the wind finally kicked in and we pumped up our 9m Kites at 6.30 am in freezing 7 degrees water and air. The kicker turned out to be too small, but the box was good fun. Although the sun was shining it was so cold, that I couldn’t feel my hands on the bar. Some hours later I got tired of obstacles and screwed the fins back on my board to go for some freestyle tricks which was when I landed my first Bel Air to blind on video. Thomas Alsbirk and Christian Mailand did a great job filming, and they played around with lots of different angles, check out this video of Mauricio Abreu to get an idea of Christians skills. Jan Schiegnitz and I had a good session so the full video should turn out really sick!
