Some weeks ago, I wrote a short blog on the upcoming German Wakeskate Championships at Blaichach.  The event already took place last weekend. It was a very chilled and well organized one! The guys who organized this event wanted me on short term to cover the event, which meant to be a good job! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that much with us! Cloudy nearly whole day long!

But this had no effect on the riding! There where some surprises, already in the qualifying, but in the end Jan Kissmann won the Open Category, well deserved! He killed it whole day long and I really liked his style as well as he is a sympathetic and friendly guy! Thumbs up and congratulation Jan!

In the evening, the event-organizer, realized a Best Trick Winch Session presented by Red Bull at the party location, which was located in an open air pool with a lounge area. The setup consisted of a gap-slide, which was used for tricks off that slide. Luki Suess also showed us the possibility to shred the gap with an Ollie!

Jan rocked also that winch jam-session, pulled by two Neverride winches, and ended up winning with a 3-Shuv down the slide! The bad thing about that session was permanent rain, which made work much harder and gave us not to many possibilities. Even though I’m really happy with the outcome of that long day, which ended for me after 24h awake, some hundreds of pictures shot and 700 km on the road!

Hopefully the summer comes back again, soon, because I’m already planing some photoshootings, which need sweet weather instead of rain and cold…
