Last Weekend the Austrian Championships (Surfgames) took part in Podersdorf. And WTF?! I am Austrian Freestyle Champion now. I am so happy, so stoked – it’s hard to find the right words for it!
Anyways we had two days of 5.2 wind – I ve to say after France this setup felt huge – but heat after heat I felt more confident and sailed better and better. I could beat Chris Sammer this time in the Winners Final of the Single Elimination and during the final of the Double in the sunset with a lot of friends, teammembers and supporters on the beach I faced Tisi Kraschitzer for the final showdown. This time I sailed again super solid – and when I was planing out of a massive Kono mid of the heat I already knew today is my day! I finished strong with double Puneta and an Airfunnel followed by Shakaflaka…and that’s the end of the story…I am Austrian Champion now.
On the next day the wind was a bit lighter – so there was a best Trick Contest…I felt really tired and even a bit ill – but still managed to pull a few decent moves on my big gear and finished 2nd.
I am still so stoked. Thanks also to JBL for the Music in my ears to keep my stoke alive!
