One Year South Africa

April 21st, 2011

Had a great year in South Africa, the past few months have been particularly amazing with my sister visiting me for a month and shooting amazing pictures with Jens Hogenkamp and Mario Moreno.

Here are some shots my sister and friends took, you’ll find the really good pics in magazines as usual.

Denmark Movie

December 7th, 2010

Today I got an early christmas present from Thomas Alsbirk who shoveled together some unused footage from his video files and turned them into a rad little video featuring Jan Schiegnitz, himself and me. (I’m the bloke in the white wetsuit :))

Summer baby!!!

November 25th, 2010

Can’t believe I’ve been here in South Africa an entire year now! Last week I finished my last exams of the year  and now I’ve got all the time of the world to ride and take advantage of South Africa’s amazing kitesurfing conditions!

Big Bay is windy as hell as usual, last week I went to the lake with Matthias Larsen already, this spot amazes me again and again!

Added some pictures to my facebook page, rest goes to magazines 🙂

Life becomes a Game

September 26th, 2010

Game Mechanics are the ultimate hype right now in the Tech and Marketing World with companies such as Foursquare and SCVNGR leading the field and some even experimenting with turning school into a game.

But what really caught my attention is a recent partnership between Nokia and Burton Snowboards with the vision of turning real-world snowboarding into a videogame-like experience. Watch the video above to get an idea of the project.

Now imagine something like that coming to kiteboarding! Will such technology transform the format of competitions completely at some point in the future and make judges and tours obsolete? Imagine the economic opportunities of a kiteboarding brand acquiring exclusive rights to this technology or making the first move…
The future looks bright!

Capetonian Winter

September 19th, 2010

The South African winter is pretty much over and it’s getting really warm, board-short temperature (ok, that’s outside of the water)!

The world-famous cape doctor wind has been very much in hibernation thoughout the past couple of months but it’s slowly showing signs of awakening these days and we’re getting to ride every 3rd day or so with good conditions for bindings!

We’ve also started shooting some video and this time we can fully concentrate on the riding as Definition Media is doing the filming which is great! These days we’re also gonna shoot with Mario Moreno, who’s photography has been published in National Geographic and who shoots amazing kite pictures, my webpage header being one of them!

Have fun and see u on the water
