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:

Last May the second Wakeskate Trash took place at Thulba Cablepark. I went there in order to see some of my wakeskating friends and perhaps get also on the water. In the afternoon, Kai Kissmann and Dennis Knasiak decided, that we need to go winching…as there is a relaxed spot close to Thulba, we moved there. Unfortunately we didn’t get to much shots because of an upcoming storm. My favorite is the lighttest, though…
