Thank’s a lot to my “sponsors“, they give me with their equipment the chance to get some nice sessions on the water… all around the globe.
for my waveboards I got a deal with Tom Hautzel, who is the german distributor of Firewire kitesurfboards.
actually Firewire is a famous surfboard brand, but after Felix Pivec joined them, they got also pretty big in the kite waveboard business.

From June 2010 I’m on the new Ozone C4 Kite, which is a C-Kite shape with lots of speed and power. At the moment Ozone is not very big in Germany, but I trust in their kites and will help them to get bigger. If you see me at the beach, just ask for a testride.
