You can find the whole story of the funniest event of the year, the Legit Jam on Sylt this Summer, spread on 12 pages in the new Kitelife Issue 9. Only available in Germany though. Hopefully videos will follow, someone is working on them.
It was good kiting, the weather was warm, we got the sickest light ever, the sliders were small but legiiiit, the vibe was cool, the wind was terra consistent, we got thousands of shots that look as if they were taken on Hawaii and that are sick, the intros of each rider will make you laugh,I’m slowly getting addicted to Red Bull or caffeine, Red Bull Coke tastes like Calippo Cola, Cliff in Kampen is a no-go which doesn’t mean you can’t party in Sylt, Pile doesn’t sleep in summer, don’t play golf with Rick by night, Kim is going to make our sport popular in Canada and next time everything is gonna be bigger, the sliders, the location and hopefully the budget.
Shit, gotta add another sentence: The winner of the event will be elected by you guys, thats right, each rider is soon gonna have his video part on the web and you gonna decide who rocked and who flopped. Isn’t that legit?
My trip from Berlin to Sylt went very well and my luggage also arrived on Sunday. The weather here has been very cold though, how can it be like this in July?!
The wind direction hasn’t allowed us to hit the obstacles yet, but we had two awesome days on the ocean. On Monday the waves were big and my Psycho II kept me warm enough to do some of the highest Toeside 3s and 5s of my life. On Tuesday, we rode on a super small lagoon with dead flat water, also sick. Red Bull organised us tons of Red Bulls and Red Bull Colas, Kim has some agreements with local restaurants for food and drinks. Its a small event, but its a nice vibe and good fun, so its good to be here!
We will also post some short clips on ridelegit.com
Lately my travels go all wrong. I arrived at Malaga airport yesterday morning 11am, just 20 min. before my flight to Sylt was supposed to leave. Somehow they managed to get me into the plane by time. But after waiting for an hour in parking position, the pilot announced one of the brakes of the airplane was broken. After another 2 hours seated in this thing, they send us back to the airport where we had to wait another 5 hours with a lunch budget of 8 Euros. In the end of the day most passangers who were going just to Dusseldorf were sent to a hotel in Malaga, while I got to fly to Berlin, because there were no flights from Dusseldorf today. So I got a night in a hotel in Berlin and then made a small trip through the city center. Now Im back to the hotel and waiting for my flight to Sylt, hopefully this time things work out. Oh, and I almost forgot, they also lost all my luggage….
