Looks like the off-season is coming to an end… Tomorrow I will leave Austria together with Stefan Spiessberger to go to Dakhla/Morocco for the 1st Pkra Tourstop of the 2012 season which starts on the 28th of March.
We go there a week in advance to check out the conditions and to get used to the spot. The wind can get all possible windforces there and the water will be quite choppy. So its gonna be a tricky competition. Not only for the conditions but also for the start of the new judging system on the tour. We will have a best trick format from now on in which you have 12 attempts to do tricks and only the 7 best scored tricks will count. Lets see how that works but for sure the competitions will get more interessting for spectators cause now you have a live-scoring with points for each trick so it will be easier to understand and follow.
I hope the training over the winter pays off and that I will get into the competition routine fast to improve my ranking and to get good results. I will keep you up to date via my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/mikeschitzhofer so if you haven’t liked it so far please do so!
