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.

As the 2011 is nearly over, it’s time to get the last view recaps online. First one is from the Telekom Playgrounds, which I attended once again. Weather was as usually, i’d say “hamburgish”! But this couldn’t stop the riders to throw down a sick contest at Pinneberg and of course the organization was again perfect (as expected)! The bad thing about the comp was Fredys defeat, which nobody expected. But hey boy: that’s what always can happen. Send it next time…

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.

Some weeks ago – maybe alreay a month now – the Billabong and NewSchnitzel Stretch Your Summer Tour stopped at Wertheim, close to my hometown, for a nice testing at the boat. It was quite a chilled day and although I nearly lost my camera, I came home with some shots and of course, good mood. I once again had to fight the difficulties of boat-photography and as we had a chase boat for quite a while, it was even harder. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to shoot something like that again, soon!
