Slingshot Kiteboarding just launched their new 2016 RPM.

It was an honor to be a part of the product shoot last fall in Brazil. Working together with all my idols really was a dream come true. The vibe was amazing and Andre Magarao was delivering behind the lens.

I can say changing to Slingshot was one of the best decision of my life. I enjoy every second and have found a completely new motivation . Now I just have to finish my last exams until I can finally head down to cape town to score some sessions on my new kites.



New shores

After being an Airush teamrider for 5 years, I just switched to Slingshot.

It was a hard decision for me to leave the brand that I have grown up with, but I felt like I wasn’t moving forward anymore.

I’ve always liked Slingshot a lot. They are pushing the spo

rt exactly in the direction I am also going and I am looking up to their perception of the sport. Projects like the woodgrain videos inspired me so much during my development. I feel very stoked and honoured to be in the same team with some of the best kiteboarders in the world and I am looking forward to a bright future and some fun projects.




Video: The Getaway – Kitesurfing a secret spot

Doesn’t every kitesurfer share the same dream: A perfect spot only for himself, all day long.

Niklas and myself recently made this dream come true.

After leaving everything behind, ignoring a rather shitty wind forecast and exploring a spot we had no idea what it’s gonna look like, we found the ultimate playground.

Best trick King of the Lagoon 2015

I am stoked to take home the best trick award from this years King of the Lagoon in Büsum.

The event started on a Friday afternoon with a training session in the park. The wind was solid and I could get used to the features really good.

The next day the real competition started off with some good winds and I managed to win my first heat. As the day got older, the wind got lighter and lighter and in the semi final I wasn’t able to go over the kicker with enough speed anymore which left me unable to show off my moves. As the judging criteria was divided in the 3 categories slider, kicker I was really unlucky and missed the final round. Just one kicker trick would have made the difference. Bummer, but that’s life. I hope to get some bigger kites soon for next year so this won’t happen again.

Looking forward to the summer now.
