Lets post some more of the last season. In mid September we headed north for the last part of the Red Bull “Fred & Nikki” missions. Finally we filmed at the sweet KÖRKs Strandarena close to Rostock. Fred and Nikki where threatened to ride all day. Ok, of course they wanted to ride nearly whole day long.

The next recap story is about the 2nd mission with Fred and Nikki. The spot search brought us one of the sickest winch-spots I have seen so far! The “Zeche Zollverein” at Essen in the so called “Ruhrgebiet”. An area where coal-mining was one of the main industries for quite a long time. The spot is now a protected cultural place and that is another point why it was so special to be able to winch there.

Here are some impressions I took with my pocket-cam during the spotcheck:

Although I have been there not for photographing, I want to share this project here, too. We went to the “Weißsee” at Austria in order to do some winching with Fredy von Osten and Nikki Gührs. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t our friend while been up on 2300m above sea-level. The only good day, was the arrival one. We had like 10 centimeters of fresh snow – at the end of July!!! – and the sun was shining. Here is one shitty mobile-cam-shot which quite nicely shows what it was like.

Another year passed and we had again a super successful season for our German Wakeboarders. And now it’s time to vote for this years Rider Of The Year! mag71 and thegapmagazin.com just started the voting and I’m quite happy, that one of my pictures made it to get printed on those ROTY flyers and posters as well as being spread in the Internet. As in former years the acting ROTY is seen in on the flyer: last year Dominik Guehrs took the win and so he made it to print for 2010. Here is the final version…
