I could win the first Double Elimination

I am very happy today, when I won the Final against Tonky, I knew it was very close and so i was even more happy when I was the winner of this Heat and so of the first Double Elimination. I know some more will follow, if the wind does not play games like today in the afternoon..... But I will do my best to win also the next round...

only one day to go....

Only one more day before we start with our next Freestyle Worldcup here at Fuerteventura. Today we were sailing totally powered up with more than 40 knots after the spectacular slalom Race... tomorrow we will have our inscriptions and the opening ceremony. I hope I can improve my result from last year and win again here, but the competition is hard.... today i had a small training session in the lagoon.....

Dwarf 8 Event in Tarifa

I am waiting at Fuerteventura for the Competition to start, hopefully it will get a little better, at the moment everybody is almost killing themselves on the water, too many people in too choppy and gustry conditions.. it will be nice to sail with four people only in the Competition...

Right after the Contest here at Fuerte, I will go straight to Tarifa, where we do a nice Event with Dwarf 8 and the WET Shop Tarifa.... see Dwarf8.com

Bit unlucky at Pozo Worldcup

For the second time I competed at the PWA Wave Worldcup at Pozo and i was a little unlucky... My jumping was good enough but I couldn´t find the right waves to perform some good waverides and advance one round. After some Slalom days and some Freestyle Training today I could finally sail in waves again and straight against my friend Diony Guadagnino, who sailed very strong and got into the next round... Now it´s time for me to get prepared for the Freestyle Worldcup at Fuerteventura....

I won Lanzarote... just a great Event !!!!

We had really sick conditions at the 2009 Lanzarote PWA Worldcup with lots of wind and huge Waves..... I loved it and I could win here again, for the third time !!!! I still cannot really believe it ! I am really happy about my result and was pretty relaxed.. too relaxed to be honest and so i was sleeping during my single elimination heat, some people think it was on purpose but was really not true, I always want to win and was really angry about me having lost that heat.... but I could fight back and win ten Heats !! I never had to do this in my life... was a very different experience but i hope it will never happen again !!! now it is some time to celebrate before the wave event in Pozo ....
