Here is my newest Video. Episode 6 already of my SEEN Webseries. I will post a longer post about Windsurfing, Spots, Travel and much more in Sri Lanka soonish, but I am pretty busy right now – finishing some work on the Lake, getting my last session in Austria tmrw, flying to Amsterdam on Tuesday for some exciting news coming soon and then travel to Brazil next week…
Back in Europe, back in reality, but hey this trip was the hell of a ride. Epic. From the Windsurfside of life it was a lot of lightwind Windsurfing – I was most of the time on my 5.2 Idol LTD 2018 and my 100l Flikkaboards Freestyle (but the compact one with just 210 length, an epic board btw). After the 4 weeks in Sri Lanka, I ve to say I got better in those lightwind conditions and in the end I got some proper sessions with my 4.8 aswell. Some days I could use even my 4.4.
But what made this trip an incredible one? That’s actually hard to say, but I like the friendly local people, the food, the cultur, the adventure aswell the amazing DESILVA Windresort Crew. Beside Windsurfing in Kalpitiya in the North West of Sri Lanka, I traveled also down to the south to catch a few waves in Weligama, as there was no swell in the famous Arugam Bay.
What’s also great about Sri Lanka is, that you can check some cultural places and somehow they have a lot of energy – hard to describe.
Anyways there will be a few videos dropping soon – SEEN 6, JBL Sri Lanka Stories and probably a Sri Lanka Impressions Videos aswell. And I will give you a proper Sri Lanka Story and Guide aswell on my page in the following weeks, so stay tuned.
Whats next?! Actually I am trying to make a winterplan these days, looks like I am heading to Brazil in the end of October.
Soooo thats it for Fuerte! Anyway it was quite windy haha. I realized one more time that 4.4 is the perfect sailsize, I learned how to Pasko on the way in, I ducked my sail 200 000 times, I tried to loop on my bad tack, and I crashed around 1 000 000 sailducks – ah yeah and I survived 55 knots with 4.4. My highlight of the trip was a lonely evening session with 4.0 and my waveboard -with waves. I could ride them and really play on it – unfortunatly we thought this happens more often and did not film – yes, because of the flying sand – so we missed all my best session. Anyway I put together a quick edit at it would be sad not to use the footage as some of the shots are pretty good, while some shots are not that brilliant. Anyways thanks to Theresa who made this video possible. We are going to Sri Lanka already this week – so there is more coming… very soon!
Recently I made a little poolparty to test out the JBL Pulse 3 and sure we captured a video of it. Hope you like it.
After 5 years I am back in Fuerte Ventura. It’s windy everyday and sometimes it’s even too windy. Before I came here I got a new Freestyleboard from Flikkaboards. It’s a compact Freestyle 207cm long, 62cm wide, 90l big. It’s awesome as usual. So I wanted to give this little baby a own Video and as there was a huge hightide we did a small session in the lagoon. Unfortunatly the Waterhousing steamed up very fast – so its just a few moves and positive vibes. As I got a new Freestylewavesboard aswell – there will be another Video soon 😉
After 9 years on Gaastra Sails it was time for a new adventure – so from now on I will be on North Windsurfing Sails. I will be using the Idol LTD for Freestyle and I have some Super Heros aswell for some Wavesessions. Here is a short Video I made during the USD Next Generation Week.
Here are two new Videos from JBL online! One is from Brazil last year, and another one is from Tarifa earlier this year. Hope you like it.
The JBL Charge 3 is waterproof, you can recharge your phone if necessary and has an awesome sound. You can find all the Infos here. de.jbl.com
And here you go: JBL Flip 4. The best thing about is? You can connect a lot of speakers together to get a better sound, a yes and its waterproof aswell.
As it’s a very busy spring for me (with more content coming soon) – I keep it short this time. Here is a small Gopro Video from a light 4.4 session very early morning last week.
In my new Video SEEN 4, I take you to Tarifa, in Winter. What in Winter?! Yes, you heard right. I spent already a few winters there, for some good reasons. Everyday different conditions: waves ,chop, flat, strong, light; SUP, good match for my budget, lots of space on the water, high level. Anyways you can read on this page already a lot about Tarifa. So here is SEEN Episode4.
