Today we had newly fallen snow. Instead of standing in a line at the lift we decided to ascend a local mountain to get into untouched powder…

On Saturday I met my brother and some friends to enjoy a few good days in the alps. It was just insane. 30 centimeters of powder on my first day back in the snow. I’m loving it. At first we went on some hikes to get into snowboarding again after the long summer season. We found a sweet lip to use as a take off, and started out the season with an epic kicker session. My brothers grabs in front of the backdrop of the Starnberger See and my first Backflip 180 in black and white. Yesterday it began to warm up again. So we decided to switch the underground from snow to ice. We had a lot of fun climbing up a huge frozen waterfall.

Some weeks ago we had the chance to interview one of Germanys best kiteboarders, Jan Schiegnitz (“Shigi”). He is a member of the Windfinder Kitesurf Team and is sponsored by Liquid Force, NPX, Schwerelosigkite and Dandie. He has also released a calendar with beautiful shots from Germany’s best kiters – would make a perfect christmas present, go to justkite.de and have a look! click the pic

The new Envy is finally available. This kite is so much fun. I have never flown a kite which is so stable, so easy to control and offers so much versatility for easy cruising, wakestyle and freestyle. The Envy is a blast from the first moment on, and will never get in the way of your progress. That’s most importantly, able to enjoy your time on the water. For me thats it, what it is all about. Check out the new Envy. It pays to buy good kites.
