The Nose Sink Hoss Tack

Good times, this move. One of my favorite nonplaning transitions, taught to me by ABK's Andy Brandt back in 2000. I saw the move, pointed, and said "teach me that!" He told me I wasn't ready, that I needed to...

Bonaire Windsurfing 2017

My wife loves windsurfing in Bonaire. She’s the one who suggests the vacation each year. I say (I really say this) “we could take a non-windsurfing vacation.” I swear I actually say that. And she always replies “I want to...

Ski touring in Austria

The winter 2016/2017 is brilliant. We got a lot of snow and a long lasting season. Since I stopped competing on the PWA tour I have more time again to enjoy this white wonderland.

Future Windsurfer: Little Girl Blown Around On A Door

This is GREAT! Note how the little girl holds on to her phone with one hand whilst riding that door like a pro. Catapults will mean nothing to her. #futurechampion.

Reason to Hate Mike Burns #341: Hydroplaning in Hatteras

There he is, wearing a shorty, hovering over the water as he windsurfs a foil on the Pamlico Sound. Mike Burns does it all, with a smaller sail and in warmer conditions that I ever do/rig/get. To quote Frank Messina:...

Ice session 2017

The water felt ice cold, but the session was fun. I tried my new Starboard Flare 103 and  Challenger 4Pro 5.4 for the first time. 15 knots were enough to have good fun in 4.3° cold water. Was probably colder than in Alaska, when I sailed in front of glaciers a few years ago. And […]

Private lessons, trainings & instructions

Lake Neusiedl is my home spot. It’s a shallow sweet water lake. You can touch the ground almost everywhere on the lake, what gives a safe feeling and helps when learning the beach start for instance. I will run together with Mission to Surf a windsurfing teacher instruction week in April 2017, 9 – 14 […]
