The Event is over and everybody is on the way home. I fly tomorrow back to Austria. I’ ve seen that there was good south east wind yesterday and I hope that there will be some more when I am at home.
I wanted to train a little bit today but the wind died and so I rested with Alvaro Onieva and Alex Pastor.
On the last day of the Competition some races were helt and at the end we did an freestyle expression session. I had a show- heat against Mario Rodwald from Germany. We did some nice stuff for the spectators at the beach. After that it startet to rain and I packed my stuff.

Today was the second day of the PKRA-event here in Mexico. Conditions have been much better than yesterday…
Skippersmeeting was at 9 and we startet at 9. 50. I warmed up and then I had my first heat against Mark Jacobs. He is a very good rider from New Zealand and it’s very hard to ride against him, as nobody knows, what he will do next… ;.) The conditions here are “super-hard”. Gusty an soooo choppy. My arrival was on Tuesday and because of this fact I had no possibility to check conditions here before my first heat. I was really happy to land a lot of tricks and to win this one.
My second opponent was Julian Hosp from Austria. I know that he can ride really powerfull and so I tried to give my best. Jules did a good job too but in the end the judges gave me the better end.
In round 3 I was against Kevin Langeree. Actually he is number 2 in PKRA-ranking and at the moment his shape is excelent! It’s clear that every rider tries to give his best and a little bit more when he’s against Kev in the same heat. I had a good run and sticked a lot but at this early time of the season he could do a little bit more - that’s it… It’s no shame to lose a heat against Kev in this shape (he won the Single today) and hopefully I can improve my performance during the long season 2008.
Tomorrow we will start the Double and I have to wait fo my opponent. Lets hope it’s getting not too hard.
Thanks for all your wishes and please wish me good luck for tomorrow.
