Day 10 and 11

February 8th, 2008

Day 11:

We went to Langebaan because this day it was too windy in Capetown. First I went out at Friday-Island and we filmed a little bit. Later we went to Sharksbay and we had a quiet nice session there. I could do a lot of tricks and was pretty happy with this day.

Day 10:

BIG waves!!! The forcast predicted 5,2 meter and they did not lie! I don`t know the exact high but we had a perfect downwinder from Bigbay to Hakat. The wind was very strong (up to 40kts), but this gave us the “extra lift”. I’m sure that there are less places on the planet where you can jump higher than between Capetown and Melkbos. Perhaps it’s because of the cold water or the perfect angle of the waves. Between all the freestyle training-sessionsan we enjoyed a Big-wave day in RSA!!

Day 8

February 6th, 2008

This day was not so good… The wind was very gusty and strong, the current was bad and I felt like a beginner on the water. My father and i went to Langebaan because we thought it would be nice for training but it wasn’ t. So lets hope that it’ll be better tomorrow. There are some pics of this day in the gallery.


Day 4, 5, 6, 7

Day 7:

Today we stayed in Capetown because the forcast looked good and four meter waves were predicted. The wind was really strong and we started the day with a downwinder from Dolphinbeach to Bigbay. Was really nice. After lunch we got back to Bigbay and Silvester and I went out on our 7’s. I was almost overpowerd and we did some nice big airs and some high Kiteloops. After a bad crash I stoped it for today and also Silvester quit his session.

Day 6:

No wind and a lot of rain. So we chilled in our house and worked on my new homepage. Silvester really helped me a lot and made this all happen. Big thanks to him.

Day 5:

This day Silvester, my father and I went to Langebaan because the wind in Capetown was to strong. When we arrived it looked not that good but after some waiting and a spotchange we went out on our tens. I landed some nice and powerd tricks and was pretty happy about that.

Day 4:

Today Silvester Ruckdaeschel, Henning Nockel, my father and I went to a lake called Brandvlei. When we arrived the wind was pretty bad and it was to less to kite. We waitet about one hour and then the wind came. Silvester and I went out on our 12m kites. Henning shoot some pics and my father filmed for our next video. Silvester did some really nice Slims and Backmobes. He did it with bindings so it looked really powerd. Wakestyle at its best. I also tryed some new stuff like Nukegraps to 313 and Nukegraps to blind. I sticked some of them. Some pics of this incredible day in the gallery. After this nice session we went back to Capetown for dinner.
