I started windsurfing when I was 8 years. At the beginning I did not really like it. Wanted to play soccer like all other kids. With 12 I sailed my first regatta. From this time i fall in love with this sport. Was getting nervous when the trees and the clouds were moving. I love this sport till now..17 years later ;-)
Fanatic: Just a side note - 17 years later he got on Fanatic and after his first season he's IFCA Slalom World Champion, European Champion and German Champion... ;-)
Team Fanatic since...

Compared to all other sailbrands P7 riders have to put the mast position about 1-2 cm more to the back
