I was born in 1987 and later on I got my hands on a kite for my first time. My father told me how to use the wind really early. In the following years I learned more and more and got my first own kite. That was the start of my career J. Now there is no life without kiting.
In 2007 I competed for the first time in the German KLB championships and got the 1st place in 2007 and 2010. Now I’m not competing anymore due to safety reasons for my job as a physiotherapist, but I’m out as often as I can when there is wind to push my level and get high.

I want to go kiting as often as possible, next to my job as physiotherapist. I want to have some awesome kite-trips around the globe in the next years with friends & teammates.
The only difficulties are that you are looking for right wind at the time you have to go out! J When there are perfect conditions you feel good and push your limits against yourself.
It’s awesome when you are out and feel the wind in your hair. Perfect to fly high and lose gravity with a lot of hangtime and huge heights. That’s a superkiteday!
I train at different spots. For water sessions I’m most of the time off to Holland with some great spots. On land I can train at my homespot in Duesseldorf. When there is no wind I train with fitness and running.
I take my inspirations from different riders around the world, combining and mixing it with my own thought of good riding, but the biggest key is that you need a lot of fun in what you are doing.
I’m not competing at the moment due to safety reasons for my job, but when I was competing, I was always nervous of the conditions. When it’s too gusty, you can’t land all your tricks safely.
I think my biggest fan is my family. They supported me all the time when I was young and made this all possible. And of course my girlfriends which show a lot of patience when I’m out for session and don’t come back for hours.
Do what you believe!
My future plans are to make a lot of good trips and sessions on water, land, snow and produce nice pictures & videos.
Rafting Isar – Lenggries – Bad Tölz , … the ideal beginners tour for wild-water Rafting.
Meeting point: Action & Fun outdoor center in Bad Tölz, Königsdorferstrasse 22f.
Time: Tours are every Saturday and Sunday at 10 am and 2 pm. For groups of at least 4 people tours start every day.
Description: In front of the panorama of the Bavarian Alps you experience this river journey on the wild-romantic Isar as an ideal and light entrance in the Wildwasser-Rafting. In our outdoor center in Bad Tölz we provide new white water equipment – you only have to bring swimming clothes, closed shoes which can get wet, T-shirt and a towel.
After a short shuttle by bus to the entrance in Lenggries and the boat / group division (up to 10 people per raft), the boat leaders explain and show you everything you have to know – safety talk – and will experience.
“Forward” and off you go into the pleasure! With the wildwasserrafts
we drive over gentle, but also rather sparkling Isar waves and waters. The highlight of the tour is the “small Isar cataract”, which we drive through with suitable water level and by request of the guests also a second time. WW-level I-II, one part III.
End and exit of the boats and the tour is again at the outdoor center in Bad Tölz. (Tour duration approximately 3 hrs)
The price per person includes equipment and shuttle to the entrance.
The Thermal flight offers the feeling of the thermals in the air during the flight and the paraglider is a bit longer.
Your tandem pilot will be looking through the power of the sun, causing updrafts. Besides, many circles are flown and maintained constantly at new sites for even better thermals out. Using these thermals your tandem pilot can extend the flight time artificially.
Please note: By mid-September the thermals are usually strong enough to extend the flight. In other seasons there can be only for a single day.
Often filming and photography are possible during the thermal flights due to the still relatively quiet conditions in the air.
After 15 – 30 minutes, you begin with the landing. Many passengers already dreaming for the next paragliding flight…
-Detailed briefing on the launch, flight, landing phases with your tandem pilot.
-We have assured the tandem flight, your pilot signs all flight insurance in your presence.
-During the preparation you get a helmet, gloves, and in bad weather a flight suit.
-Tandem flight together with your pilot.
Flight time 10-25 minutes
Total time 1.5 Hours
