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!

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!

Some weeks ago, I told you about the comeback of NewSchnitzel, the biggest German Wakeboard-Company! Now they are back on track and just published their brand new product-poster for 2010. As there was not enough time to do a whole catalog, they will inform about their stuff with a poster. I like the artwork, not only because they used one of my pictures for the backside, where Steffen Vollert is shown.

About a year ago, NEWSCHNITZEL was said to be dead! Just a few month later there was hope again and the wakeboarding scene, especially the German, was happy that the guys around Hardy Tunnissen found a way, to continue their mission. But again there where problems in financing, although the designteaser for 2010 showed maybe the best collection ever! So for the last month the guys from Stuttgart were searching for new possibilities to continue what was expected to be great! And finally they told us: the Schnitzel-Story continues!
