Another floaty aerial.

“Running from avalanches”

By | News, Uncategorized | One Comment

I flew out of Boston just hours before the first heavy snow storm hit end of Jan. This storm was followed by 3 more and Boston received the most snowfall since the 60′s, but in fact all in one month which made it seem worse than ever. I fortunatley ran from that avalanche and arrived in Cabo verde for a few more.

Although Nowadays Ponta Preta is more crowded than it was 17 years ago when I first dicovered it. You still get awesome days with nobody out. This particular swell, one of our sessions in the early morning was just Kai K. , Mitu Monteiro and myself at bombing Ponta Preta and also the “right of the left”. The right off the left is the next peak over at Ponta Preta that gets really big , moves really quick and gives you the chance for 2 big bottom turn/ top turn combos before you need to quickly cut out of the big closeout that breaks in front of crazy boulders. Mitu and myself had a special session as it absolutley pumped wave after wave for an hour straight.

Fellow rippers Brawzinho and Kauli also flew in for this swell and we traded off sessions at Ali Baba and Curral Jaoul. That’s the cool thing when we get a big swell in Sal . I usually just disappear from my beach club for 3 days, stopping in only in early am for breakfast and throwing a few Changos in the tuck and then in the evning for some fresh Tuna. You can pack so many amazing sessions into a short few day span that you’re usually feeling pretty satisfied .

I’m pretty excited that after so many years, I’m still able to get a big amount of excitment out of those swells , yet I’m in a position in my windsurf career where I get to just carve for myself.. No worries about judges, photos or whatever. Just enjoying it for what it is and in this case of this session was able to avoid all the avalanches both in Boston and Ponta Preta…. and come out unscathed ;)i

Below here we have a few words by Henning himself explaining the 2014 season. Thanks a lot Henning for the update!!

2014 is nearly over, its time to summarize the windsurf season. I competed all events of the spanish funboard tour AEF and could win the title “Grand master” result of winning that category in 3 of 4 events. I finished as 2nd master 2014, and i am in the Top 10 of the overall ranking on 8th position.
Last but not least I finished the AEF tour as 9th in slalom and wave.
Really happy with the 2014 season, we had some brilliant events, met great people and had exciting slalom action.
I would like to thank especially Pieter Bijl from Angulo Boards, Renato Morlotti from GUN SAILS and Timm-Daniel Köpke from Maui Ultra Fins for their great support. Lets get rumble 2015!

As we can see Henning is supporting us by always smiling, he is clearly super stoked to be windsurfing and with that share our passion. Henning we wish you luck for the 2015 season. I’m sure can make it to be on top!!

Henning

Henning is not only spending his time racing the Magnums around. When the time and conditions are right he loves to get some wave sailing action. Living in the south of Spain these conditions mostly present it’s self in the winter time. Good times on the water and the best way to stay in shape! Keep shredding Henning!
