For 23 years now windsurfing is the most important thing in my life. Growing up directly at a beach of the Baltic Sea made this ocean my home spot. My wife´s family lives on the island Sylt, the well known surfspot in the North Sea, which is my so-to-speak 2nd home since 1998. Up to 4 times a year I travel to the Atlantic Ocean & Mediterranian Coasts of France for windsurfing as well. Since the end of 2011 I spend lots of time on Tenerife living directly next to Dany Bruch and surfing at El Médano. Training together with Dany at this spot made my level rise a lot. After travelling for years and training at all these different places my surfing skill have reached a so far peak and I´m really keen on showing what I learned and see how far it can get me.
Last year I participated in the PWA world cup Sylt but unfortunately there was no wind. In June 2012 I took part in the Soulwave in Klitmöller/DK. One month later I enjoyed surfing at the PWA world cups on Gran Canaria (25th place) and on Tenerife (17th place). These events have been perfectly organized and I had lots of fun with the other competitors. The PWA world cups in Klitmöller and Sylt in September are the next challenges I´m looking forward to. Lets see how far I can get. Stay tuned. Mick

location: Dahmeshรถved Due to the gusty conditions on our local spots I prefer powerful and light sails.
