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!

Only few more days this year, so I have to hurry up to get those recaps done. Next was the ION “resolve obstacles” videoshooting which I joined for taking some photos, too. It took place at TURNCABLE, which is known to be always worth a visit. We had a small but nice team: Sebi Thums, Benny Sae-Chong, Sandro Reinhardt and of course a groom I didn’t know before, Max “STYYYLE” Reigbert!

Max - going biiiiig!

It’s been again quite a while since my last post. The summer season was a busy one, but now there is time for a little recap. I will try to write some posts within the following days or weeks about my personal summer in photos and of course wake-season highlights. Lets start chronological with my first event of this year: TurnOn Thannhausen. Of course nothing special about those pictures taken there, but my second helicopter flight! Good memories though…

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…

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.
