In 2001 as a 10 year old boy I fell in love with kiteboarding. Ever since I was dreaming of travelling the world and push the limits of the sport. After finishing school in 2010 I fulfilled my dream and followed the World cup ever since. Winning 3 European and 8 German Titles means a lot to me!
Nevertheless every freeride session or new trick can make me just as happy. During the World cup in 2014 I broke most of the ligaments in my left knee which turned my world upside down for a while. Now I am on my way back and I feel so much motivation and inspiration. Until I learn the new tricks which are popping up in my head I will travel the world and discover new spots.

- 2013: European Champion

There is much I want to accomplish but I don’t think of it as a bucket list. Rather I enjoy the process of inspiration and creation. For sure my biggest goal is to come back stronger after my knee injury! Despite that I wish to travel the world and build the best gear for my style of riding.
To land a new trick this year after my enormous knee injury in 2014.
Like any other board sport the level of technique and power multiplied over the past years. For sure it is about keeping up and pushing the limits but it´s also a lot about defining the sport by your very own style.
There are many things which I enjoy to the fullest. Sticking a trick perfectly, a session with your best mate, winning a comp or riding in front of a special scenery can produce a lot of endorphins!
In my head. Riding is way more fun with friends – when I am alone I prefer to visualize tricks in my head.
Most nervous I am when preparing all my gear. I want it to be perfect and also prepared for any conditions – if so I can fully focus and get sharp for the comp.
I guess my parents. Definitely I am their biggest fan.
Don´t give up when making your dreams come true. By my parents.
Get into the best shape ever, travel the world and design incredible gear with Gaastra. Oh – and enjoy every moment of it.
Your Paragliding Pilot shows you the most beautiful peaks of the Bavarian Alps in 3 – 4 tandem flights.
Depending on the wind direction, you can, for example, fly by magnificent peaks of Hochfelln in the early morning. These flights offer scenic views of the Chiemsee and with luck of the Salzburg basin.
At noon you could experience paragliding the summit Hochries. Of course, only after a long lunch on the summit hut!
The tandem flight in the afternoon can, for example, start from Brauneck.
If there is enough time and the stomach of our guest still “airworthy”, we provide paragliding near Blomberg as an evening flight.
Fly with your personal tandem pilot on a day three or four peaks in the Chiemgau, overlooking the Chiemsee and the Alps.
-Tandem flights from Hochfelln, Hochries, the Kampenwand or other mountains.
-Shuttle to all flight areas.
-All mountain rides with the respective cableway.
-View photos or video of the tandem flight day.
Our flights “pilot for a day” are only weekdays from Monday to Friday and only by appointment!
Your pilot will inform you about the weather while flying a paraglider, the technique and the interplay of landforms and wind.
You can concentrate entirely on the view from above and the fly – on request the video from the entire day.
Flight time depending on thermals
Total time 8 Hours
The Basic flight is the trial tandem flight in our program, so to speak the “small door” to the world of paragliding.
Tandem paragliding has something special. In completely calm air without thermals you float down into the valley – a heavenly feeling. The Basic flight with the help of your tandem pilot offers the chance to take over the reins and even drive yourself.
Your tandem flight pilot will be there to answer all your questions about the paragliding flight. During the flight filming and photography would also be ideal by our photo rod because of the calm conditions in the air.
After about 10 – 15 minutes your tandem flight is over, and perhaps you will catch – the flight Virus…
-Thorough training of tandem paragliding: take-off, flight, landing phases with your tandem pilot.
-You are insured with us, your pilot signs all flight insurance in your presence.
-You get a helmet, gloves, and in bad weather a flight suit.
-Tandem flight with your pilot. If desired, you may drive yourself!
