It’s been a while since my last blog post on “The way to get stoked” and this has a reason. The New Year started a bit disappointing for me as I have been in hospital twice in January. I had a surgery in mid. Jan. where they took out a little encapsulation which I had from surfing during the winter. After a week the stitches came out and I was back on the water.
Then after my birthday I went kiting where I suffered a crash whilst doing kite-loops. It was a quite strong day with 30-35kn onshore conditions and low-tide. Somehow a gust hit me and took me straight to the beach where I got knocked out. I woke up in hospital and lost my memory about what happened. I was riding with my friend Alex who noticed the accident and acted perfectly, taking care of me till the ambulance came. I am pretty lucky that I didn’t break my bones as I took a huge impact on my leg. I am still out of the water but my leg is recuperating quickly which gives me hope to be on the water soon. All this gave me extra time to put a video together for you guys which got captured during this winter, check it out…
My plans for this year according to the PKRA schedule are riding some contests (freestyle/wave), in Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote & Marocco in March-August. In between I will go to Germany to spend some time at the cable-park with my girlfriend, Marion. After the summer I really love to go to Ceara in Brasil and spend time there from September-Dezember for training. Visiting Brasil is a big dream for me which will hopefully come true. I’m going to work on videos about trips during all this time and this for I hope you follow me on my page. Stay tuned ;-)
