How i became a windsurfpro...
I was born in 1979, right between my two brothers in the small town Aurich, close to the north sea. My parents own a little wooden house at a lake, so i had contact with water since i was a baby. The lake is located close to our hometown, so we could reach it by bike easily and it was just a question of time, until we tried the old board of our parents. The 'virus windsurfing' infected me. I put all my money together and bought my first small board, a Fanatic Mosquito. Finished school with the abitur in 1998 and moved to the island Norderney for a year of civil service. That was my entry to wavesailing.
I started competing and got my first sponsors. Boards by Fanatic, sails by ART, later Arrows, clothing from Chiemsee. Since that year on Norderney i was ranked top 3 in the discipline Wave-Freestyle in germany. In 2000 i moved to Kiel and started studying sport-science. In the same year i entered my first Worldcup of the professional worldtour PWA.
The last years i've been travelling to most the PWA-events all over the world. For training in wintertime i mainly go to South Africa or Hawaii, or travel around the globe to explore the unexplored coastlines for Wind and waves. Since beginning 2006 i was sponsored by Neilpryde, since 2009 by Simmer Style.

Az a vizi sport, amely a szörfozést és a vitorlázást kombinálja a windsurf (magyarosan: széllovaglás). Az eszköz maga egy 2-4 méter hosszú testből és a vitorlázatból (rigg) áll. A rigget a testtel a windsurf lelke az árbóctalp (gyökér) köti össze, ami nem más mint egy szabadon forgó kardántengely. Különböző célokra (tanulás, sebesség, szlalom, freestyle, stb.) más és más windszörf tipus alkalmas.
