Costa Rica

Greetings from Costa Rica

a wonderful country that offers so much! The right place for Jürgen and me after a quite stressful and moving year. We used the opportunity to go back where we feel at home, in our kayaks and in the nature. What’s nicer then sitting on the see, waiting for the amazing wave and feeling the …

Finally back from Chile

After three month of kayaking in Chile I am finally back home. I am glad I made it back before the earthquake and feel really sorry for all the aggrieved people. I must admit three month of paddling was exactly what I needed, day after day with nothing else to do apart from kayaking. Isn’t …

Two weeks ago I went to Slovenia in order to teach people to become a VDKS (Association of German canoe schooling) kayak instructor. As the timetable for this type of course is usually quite full, Marcus, Lothar and I decided to do a good morning run on the big gorge of the Soca, getting up …

Between duty and the search for water in France

What can you do, if you had to write your thesis, but really wanted to go out and paddle?! Just do both! After spending hours in the copyshop, I went to France, visited my twin sister, studied during the day and went playboating on Hawai sur Rhone in the evening. What a faszinating wave! After …

Last days of summer

Automn is slowly sneeking into the alps, but there are still some fun rivers to run. The last two weekends I found the time to drive down there. We were blessed with lots of sunshine and quite high waterlevels on the Ötztaler and Venter Ache.
