Interview

Top 3 favourite kitesurfing spots?
Austria/Traunsee: Home sweet home – It’s always nice to come back after travelling a lot, to have a session with your friends.
Fuerteventura North: Amazing spots with all kind of conditions. Waves, flatwater and nightlife – you just have everything you want.
Brazil/Cauipe Lagoon: Cauipe is one of the best flatwater-spots I’ve ever seen. Amazing sessions in perfect conditions. Incredible how you can improve your riding at this place on earth.

Favourite gear set up?
Kite:
Vegas 10qm on 20 meter lines. The best setup for Freestyle and Wakestyle. Direct Bar feeling and a lot of power during all of my tricks – I just love it.

Board:
Team Series 135cm. That’s the board I use most of the time. With bindings or with straps, doesn’t matter. Just a lot of pop and super save landings. And the best of all: a super good design! 

Favourite music Top 5?
It is changing all the time, but at the moment:
1. Soundtrack to my life – KiD KuDi
2. Coastin’ – Zion I
3. It’s the beat – Simian Mobile Disco
4. Animus Vox – The Glitch Mob
5. Real Talk - Brix

Cat or dog?
No pets. If you travel a lot, it’s almost impossible. But I would love to have a little dog.

Vegetables or Pizza/Burger?
I try to eat healthy. Especially in times with a lot of training, it’s important to give your body everything it needs. But to be honest, it doesn’t really work all the time. So I often end up with a big Pizza or Burger in front of me, and I pretty much love it!

Girls or boys ;-)?
Girls what else?! ;)

Water or Champaign?
Beer

Car or bike?
Car! You definitely need one to go to the spot you wanna ride at. Not that long ago, I went to my homespot with all my kite-gear almost everyday – by bike. Actually, I prefer to throw all my stuff into the car, turn some good music on and have a nice ride to the spot.

City or beach?
Beach for surfing! City for partying!

Pink or black?
Vegas 2011 colour Purple/Green.:) I like the colourful style, makes me kind of feeling happy all the time!

Plane or roadtrip?
Roadtrips are pretty cool. It’s just a different kind of travelling. Living out of a car is a thing I like pretty much. On a plane everything is just easier. That’s why I think I prefer plane.

What did you ever want to say?
Keep on doing what you love to do. Don’t live in dreams. Live in reality!
