Why you like kiteboading?

After my sailing carrer, this is the best sport to combine speed, the feeling of flying and easiness.

Disciplines: Freestyle, Hydrofoil

Home Spot: Traunsee, Austria

Favourite spot: Wolfgangsee, Traunsee

Favourite Setup: I really like JNs Mr. Fantastic in 14 m in light wind conditions for using the kite’s huge power tot rain my tricks, combined with the Chit Chat 136. In less than 9 knots Mr. F is accelerating perfectly for hydro foiling. Wild Thing 10 and 6 m are my favourite kites for strong wind.

Favourite Tricks: Butterslide, Darkslide, Hydrofoil- backroll

Your Plans for 2015/16: To improve my handlepasses.
