Uppps…it’s 2012 and I haven’t finished last years recaps yet. My bad! Anyway: all the best for 2012 to all you guys out there!

But let’s get back to the recap thing. Last september Nico von Lerchenfeld was host for the 2nd edition of his Cash For Tricks Jam at the INTERBOOT tradeshow at Friedrichshafen in the very south of Germany. Nico is a hell of a guy and I was stoked to be invited for shooting the jam and of course do some media stuff. If you remember we weren’t lucky the year before because of worst weather ever…this year of course, it was all good. Well, let’s say: PERFECT!

Everyone went home winning some cash!

O’Neill Wake The Line 2011 was the biggest wakeboarding event I have been to by now. As I was asked to take photos for UNIT Parktech there, I spend some more days at Cologne. First day I attended some media-stuff with Daniel Grant and after that: took him to LA cablepark, which was probably the most important thing for this kid. ;) Anyway, it was fun. The shot below was taken while Dan was doing some riding on the kicker for the media, whilst the building of the rails and stuff was going on.

As winter is approaching faster than expected, or at least the temperatures are not that cozy anymore, I had to end my season some weeks ago. The last cable shooting took place at Turncable Thannhausen, where this years Ropebash by Wakeboarder Europe Magazine took place. I was happy to be invited again and attended for some days. We had some nice setups for shooting, but the pictures can’t be shown by now. Maybe you’ll see some of them, taken by me or some of the other photogs in upcoming ads or magazines?! We’ll see.

But as I was cleaning up my harddisk, I found the shots of a shooting earlier this year, also at Thannhausen. Those shots were taken when Marvin Kalter and me were spending some days of nice shredding and shooting at this incredible cable spot! This shot of Marvin in this kitschy sunset was printed in Alliance Wake UK. I kinda like it.
