just got my new gear for the upcoming season yesterday. Thanks to Kokatat for this incredible support and for providing the best drygear on the planet. Looking forward to stay warm and dry on the upcoming trip to cold and rainy Norway. I just have to wait a few more days until the new Maximus Prime PFD is beeing delivered.
We just tried out the new playboat made by EXO Kayaks in Italy. We didn’t have to much time and – as you can see – playboating is not our life :) But we enjoyed the few cold hours in Plattling and for sure, we’ll be there more often in summer. Check out the 2min video of that day.
Finally here is the english version of our teaser. Enjoy it. The movie is on its way to be finished soon.
Finally it is done. After many long hours at the cutting table, we are proud to present the trailer of the upcoming movie “Adventure Rio Amazon”. The english version will drop in the next couple days.
The next two months I’m traveling through South America for kayaking. First stop is Peru. After we finished kayaking there, we will move to Boliva or Columbia. We’re not sure yet, it depends on the water levels and the local weather forecast. In this time we will update another blog:
Be sure to check this blog to see what we are doing in the southern winter.
I would like to say thank you to the brands who are supporting our trip: Exo Kayaks, Accent Paddles, Kokatat, hf°, Oakley, Bench, Rollei and the AKC.
Every year in autumn there is a big event, organized by the AKC (Alpine Kayak Club), called Rissbachfliegen – or in English “Rissbachflying”. Right at the border from Germany to Austria there is a short and impressive gorge of the river Rissbach which contains three drops. One 15ft. entry and two more with about 5ft. followed by very sticky holes.
We are standing at the edge of an impressive deep gorge in the middle of Siberia and watching the Kitoy River from about 300ft above. In front of us the river flows down the famous Motkin Cheeks and we are discussing if it’s runnable at this flow or not.
While taking a look from this height above the water we are not sure if it is really possible to portage the main rapid over a big syph on the river left. After about half an hour we decided that we will give a try to make a second descent, running these rapids.
Just started the season on the Brandenberger Ache “Brandy” in Austria last sunday. Amazing waterlevel, awesome team and cool saturday night in the club house of the Kayak Club Kramsach. Only my fingers got a little bit cold in the deep gorges. Awesome ride “top to bottom”.
Looking forward to an amzing season 2012 without accidants (hopefully).
here is our full movie of our trip to california in 2011. Finally I finished it.
Take a look at my other videos on the link above!
By the way: I will switch to english now because I couldn’t find a good plug-in for that wordpress blog to change the language. Do you know any?
