Why Kitesurfing :
Since I have been a small boy my biggest dream was to become
a surfer so that I got some windsurf lessons from my
dad at the age of six. At the same time my father bought
his first kite and he practiced a lot with it. I was so
fascinated by the kite.
The only problem I had, I was at the age of six and my body was too weak for the force of the kite.
Three years later I got the permission to give it a try for the very first time. After I had the perfect check on kites at the age of ten we spent our vacation on the German ocean island Sylt where my dad taught me how to handle a Kiteboard. Currently I am totally hooked on kitesurfing .
