On the road

I've been doing several roadtrips over the last couple of months, following the south western coastline of Australia. It was mainly my partner Marion, Dan, Alex and myself, with our Van's packed up to enjoy unexplored beaches and campfire storie's... READ MORE

How To: 313

The 313 was one of my first handle passes on my switch riding side. It's a railey, followed by a frontside 360 rotation, passing the bar in the air and landing heel side. If you are already doing railey's to blind in regular, the 313 on your switch side will come easier as its the same rotation. Let me take you trough a few personal key elements I figured along the way... READ MORE

Session at the Pond

The Pond is the place where we are spending many sessions this season. It's a lagoon in Perth with a horseshoe shape and an open side to the sea. If you are regular footed or like to do switch tricks like me, this is a great place to ride. I was on the new Hadlow Wakestyle Board (Flexifoil) which is great fun. Going upwind is easy (with or without fins), it's light and has a strong pop. SEE THE SHOTS

Sharing waves with Mark Moore

Summer is here, the days are hot and the wind is pumping in the Southern Hemisphere. It was time to catch up with Mark Moore, the wave wizard and get some inspiration. I was out on the new Flexifoil Shiva wave kites, 9m that day, enjoying a few powerful turns in Perth's small waves.

The Big Pull

When the wind blows 35knots there is only one way I want to go...
I'm carrying as much speed as I can, digging my board edge into the water, eyes fixed on my take off. When the 6m kite pulls me out of the water I remain in control of my altitude, choosing the moment I'm sending it in for a loop. READ MORE!

Between Storms

I'm back in Australia and the weather has been crazy lately! We had many fronts passing trough the west coast with heaps of rain and plenty of red arrows on the wind chart.
In the beginning of 2013 Europe has suffered from a cold winter and late spring and this is the pattern that we see these days over here. This time we got lucky with sunshine and decent wind for a freestyle session. Guess who was stoked to get out on his 8 and 10m Hadlow ID's for a freestyle session? READ MORE...

How To: Nollie start

The Nollie start is a nose jump pier start and a nice way to get going at the cable park. It requires timing and balance but once learned it's fairly simple! READ MORE...
