Without water, another important element, there would not be live. I was always fascinated watching the waves roll in while having a walk on a beach. Water covers 2/3 of earth ´s surface so apparently I had to find something to include it in my sports activities.
In teenage years I started diving and the sensation being under water is breathtaking. Floating a few meters underneath the surface one is about to enter a different world. The variety of fish, corals and other underwater creatures always blows me away. Diving with sharks in the Bahamas for example was a unique experience, so was cage diving with the great white in South Africa.
When I started kite surfing I knew that this sport was made for me: thrilling, action, speed. With different kites I can adapt to varying wind speed and enjoy every moment at sea.
And now sailing: I never thought that it could be such an equalizer. Once I am on the boat and set sail, when one only hears the wind and the water against the hull, I live the perfect moment.
To add some spice to that peaceful way of travel I built an underwater wing which is drawn behind the boat. Hold your breath and discover the new way of fun.

Most common mistakes when it comes to sea-sickness is boarding a vessel with an empty stomach, not bringing enough clothes when you feel cold or when you think you can manage a cruise day while experiencing a hang-over. While most… Continue reading Drunken Sailor
I love it when we can combine two of my favorite activities in one weekend: hiking and sailing. On day one we decided to escape the city and enjoy the weather on the mountains. Our goal was the tallest peak in the Northwest of Mallorca, Puig de Galatzó: 1026 meters above mean sea level. Equipped… Continue reading Weekend Fun
