New spots, more action ...

This time we searched for new place for filming. Somewhere in Egypt there is small lagoon and nothing around. We had a really amazing trip. We were sleeping in small kushas and eating just beduin food. Wind every day from morning till afternoon. Like paradise... check the pics

Dahab again!!!

Time is flying with light speed. Two weeks are behind me. We are having a really good time here in Dahab, it's windy every single day, sometimes 5.3 weather, but better than nothing. From 7. till 14. august I was teaching for Quiksilver windsurf school. We had around 50 people and they all learned a lot. Check for more HERE. Now it's time for real action. The best freestylers are here and we started a project today. Top video started to grow (Andy Lachauer, Yarden Meir, Steven Van Broeckhoven, me, ...), stay tuned, it will be sick ...

Fuerteventura Grand Slam is finished, time for new stuff !

The third event for PWA is over. The wind was blowing every day more or less, it was very gusty but at least we could sail every day. Last two days we also got some waves so it was very hard to sail. I already mentioned how it went in first single. If I sum it up shortly... in first single I won against Edvan de Souza from Brazil, second heat I lost against  Taty Frans. In first double elimination I waited for Leo Ray. He was sailing already a few heats so he was in good form.  My sailing got bad and Leo advanced. Second single elimination was on. I won against Dai Nagamine from Japan then I lost the second heat against Andy Chambers from England just for a little little bit. In double I had a good chance to climb up again but it appears it was not my day. I lost in the first round against Gaubert from France and my road was over. At the end I finished on 29. place which is pretty bad result after Lanzarote- 9. place. There is one more event in Sylt and I will work hard to improve my overall ranking result. Two more days in Fuerteventura then off to Egypt. There will be interesting things going on... new freestyle project with the best freestyle windsurfers... and before we have also clinics with the most professional teaching quiksilver windsurfing school check it out HERE ... stay tuned !

Fuerteventura Grand Slam - Freestyle day 6

The wind is increasing every day very fast and on day six we have around 30kts<  at the beach of Sotavento. Past days were not so splendid for me. I had a good heat against Edvan in first single elimination but in double wind was not on my side. I chose 4.5 which was too big as the wind picked up. We started already second single elimination, I won first heat against Japanese sailor Dai Nagamine and now I am ready for next heat against Andy Chambers K540. The conditions are looking very hard but I will do my best. Stay tuned...
