Here is the next part of my recap story 2011. In august I joined the Chill And Ride powered by NISSAN for the 3rd time. And if you remember those posts from last year (if not here is the 2010 link), Chill And Ride ha something like the best weather deal! Same this year. As our summer was again not the best, everything changed for exactly this weekend at Freistett. More than 30°C all day loooong. So it was again quite perfect for the photo-documentation of the event.

Last weekend, I’ve been at the biggest European boat gathering for the second year, now! It was again a blast! All in all still quite exhausting because of all the parties, but definitely worth a trip! So mark your calendar for Chill And Ride 2010.

Seeing the new European Champion, Dan Nott and of course also Dominic Lagace ripping the wake was a highlight for me! Thanks guys for your show throughout the whole event! You did go BIIIIG or even LASER, as Sandro Reinhardt would say! Those who where there, might understand me! ;)

Some weeks ago I had a small shooting at Pete and Tobi Reißmanns Xstar with Steffen Vollert on bo(a)rd. Our gain was to get at least one shot to be used for this years Chill And Ride poster. The problem was, that the motive was something I am not so much used to. We needed the rider just big in the sky, grabbing, without any relation to the surrounding or anything else. Just a “Rider in the Sky” as I normally avoid! ;)

This new target was not as easy as I thought, but after some minutes of “training” I got shots where no hand was cut of or the board wasn’t completely on my picture. Steffen gave his best, to grab his signature board – the NEWSCHNITZEL VS SWS – everywhere you can imagine! In the end we decided to take a boned Indy grab. Stylish one, Steffler!
