My 3 days in the Gorge are over, on friday we sessioned the new box, which proved to be much better than last years kitepunks funbox. Props to the slider project crew and contributors.
After 3 weeks on the road I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed again. Need a travel time-out, July should be the last busy month of the year, after that I’ll probably settle down in Hamburg for a while.

OK, before I start talking about what’s going on in my life, happy new year to everyone out there reading this. Hopefully your dreams and wishes come true and you’re not waisting any minute of your precious life.
In Brazil Alvaro and I started a new video project called ‘Another Dimension’. After seeing what happened to our ‘Choice’ footage which we sent to Stance a while ago, we ourselves will edit and publish ‘Another Dimension’. We’re going to tour some more spots and try to get some nice 30 minutes together for you. Every stylish rider we meet on the way will be featured in our little movie, so far we recruited Kim Albrecht and Pablo a.k.a Frank for Brazil.

09 I will only compete in alternative style competitions and film film film. Bye bye PKRA.

Been staying away from the water again for a couple of days after sliding Kims slider with my left hand, but tomorrow I will be back on it. Only 6 days left here, will spend christmas with the family at home and then I’ll be back on the road again, destination unknown.

Just bought a ticket to Fortaleza, I’m leaving next week and will stay there for 3 weeks, I know, going to Cumbuco is a huge sign of lack of creativity as everyone has been there already (yeah I’ve been there 3 times already) but if you really think about it the most important thing is not the spot but the people around you and since Kimi has been bombarding me with some sweet slider pics of him at Cauipe for the last week and Alvaro and Alex are there 2 to film we got a nice little crew together to have some fun… Can’t wait to get out of the 5/3 I’m using here in Spain and jump into a pair of board shorts, do some downwinders and hit the rail…

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.

Yesterday MJ and I got up at 6.30 to go to the cable with Brian Wheeler from Kiteboarding Magazine. Moe was also supposed to come, but as he didn’t turn up, I was all alone on the water for an hour. They opened the cable only for us, so it was dead flat water, the light was still beautiful and when I felt to the water, I just had to wait and catch the next rope passing by. Some good shots are going into the next Kiteboarding issue. After the session we went straight to the airport and I just arrived in Hamburg a couple of minutes ago. Thanks again to Brian for the cable session, who by the way totally ripped once in the water, doing a pete rose of the kicker and a sick hasselhoff (and that cable is really low)
