Podersdorf was pretty epic again. It is one of the biggest events in Kiteboarding with more than 100.000 spectators during the 10 days of the event.
The Team-Challange was held for the second time. My team "North Kiteboarding" with Bernd Faschingleitner, Barbara Stechauner and myself was quite on top this time. We had a pretty bad start in the comp with loosing our first heat against the strong team "Kiteboarding.eu". But it was a good wake up call and we managed to win every heat after this one.
Many PKRA Riders joined the event so it was a good preparation for the upcoming World Tour Events. I was pretty stoked to win over PKRA Riders Eudazio da Silva and Ewan Jaspan with some pretty good heats.
In the end we made it all the way to the finals and lost in a pretty close heat against Team "Kiteboarding.eu" with Gisela Pulido, Mario Rodwald and Toby Bräuer.
I'm stoked about the result!
