PKRA Venezuela: 13th

April 24th, 2007

Today we woke up early and started the Double Eliminations at 10.30 AM. I was against Christian Holley in my first heat, who is one of the guys riding pretty strong this year, doing Frontmobe 7’s, etc. So yeah, I had to give it all, so I went out on my 11m to be super powered and then landed a sweet Switch Front and Switch Back 5 and a KGB to blind. So I won that heat, and now was against Tom Hebert, a big name in the KPWT.

I started my Heat with lots of power, landing some sweet moves, but then went worse and with the kite higher in the second half of the heat. Tom also went very powered, riding his kite very low and crashing a lot. When I came to the beach I wasn’t satisfied with my performance, even if most people argued that I had the better head. Tom advanced in the end, which means I’m 13th, which sucks! But sincerely, who cares, if the parties are right, aiiy?

Competitionssssss…

April 7th, 2007

Yesterday and today a Local Competition took place in Coche. There were separated categories for International Riders, Locals and Masters, so I entered in the Internationals to get used to competition riding again. In the end we were only 6 guys in the internationals, so there weren’t many heats. On Friday I did the first heat were 1 of 3 guys advanced straight to the final and I won that heat. Today in the morning it was time for the finals, I had to go against Petr Tyuschkuwitschk from Russia. We both ride pretty well in that one, I did everything without leash because it just opened after the second trick I did in the heat, so it was a heat full of Adrenalin for me and I was happy not to lose the kite, anyway Petr did better and advanced.

A bit more than One week ago I arrived in Venezuela. Which doesn’t mean I arrived at Coche back then yet! When the plane landed at Porlamar Airport, I carried nothing but my stuff and a credit card with me, just thought, that was enough in 21st century.I was wrong.If you really want to understand the situation, you must know, that according to my travel mate Pile (pilebrückmann.de) everything was planned and organized (he already was in venezuela since a week).
