Life is getting better and better here, today we woke up super early to shoot film but also photos with Henning Nockel, light was good, conditions were so as well, rest of the time is well spend with tons of different stuff, I’m taking some acting classes Tuesdays and Fridays which are really a nice way to change and kill that routine style of life. Alvaro is leaving on Saturday so this week we will try to ride as much as possible.
Tag: Cape Town
Been in Cape Town for 3 weeks now and it started out pretty slow but these last days the cam really got rolling, moderate winds and kickers made some good filming possible, but we’ve also been busy living and capturing it, checking out some art galleries and other touristic attractions and naturally the nightlife as well. See the Gallery
Lately I have been sending out lots of pics to magazines, pretty stoked about the response, sliders and bindings are hot at the moment, also the new Stance DVD just came out with “Choice” in it, not to happy with it though, they made a whole movie out of our ‘trailer” tapes…
Check kitespain.com for example, a new spanish Online Kitemag.
I’m in Cape Town now, love this place, it just has everything, the city, the wind, the temperatures, the waves…
Thanks to Mikes father I can present you this short clip of me riding Bindings at Lake Brandvlei. Enjoy!

Cafe Dulce in the morning, some internet afterwards and then I went out in Big Bay with 7m and bindings and had the worst session since my arrival, the wind was too light, it was gusty and I arrived there when everybody else was already leaving, wonder why…
Rossini for breakfast, the wind was nuking in the morning so Henning, Mike, his father and I drove to lake Brandvlei. The wind was too light to ride when we arrived at half past three, but soon picked up to give us a perfect session on our 12m kites. Mike did some nice Indy Glides to 313 and my level on bindings also exploded today, every day Im feeling more comfortable in them and I think I reached a point where its gonna be hard to go back to Straps.
No wind in Cape Town so Mike, his father and I drove down to Langebaan. There was no wind at the lagoon, but we had a powered 9m session at Main Beach. The current was really bad so after some time we did a small downwinder to a offshore spot where it was better to ride.
No wind at all and rain, so no kiting for today…
Day 13: Awesome! First Mike and I arrived late at Big Bay, Aaron, Lewis Crathern and Neil Hilder were having fun on the water, but by the time we rigged up, the wind dropped totally. We went to eat something in the Rossini and then came back one hour later and the wind was perfect. I went out on my 9m and bindings and had the best session since Im here, really made use of the kickers. The others also rigged up again and Ruben went out too so there was quite something going on out there! The wind kept going up until I was totally overpowered and did one hell of a high jump.
