Euskadi

I´ve been on a perfect trip to Euskadi (the Basquecountry in Spain) the last week. It is an absolut stunnig landscape there with mountains that are descendnig into the atlantic ocean.
I was invited by the Office of „Surfing Euskadi“ which is an organsiation that tries to show the world the perfect conditions there for surfers of all levels. The breaks on the Basquecoast reach from mellow beachbreaks for beginners (there are surfschools and camps everywhere around) to the World Famous left of Mundaka (when it´s on you´ll find no better in europe).

But Euskadi has a lot more to offer than only perfect surf. It´s an country that is blessed with beautiful landscapes behind every corner, modern citys (as Bilbao with the famous Guggenheim Museum) great architecture and cultural offers, a superb culture of food and drink (thats kind of religion) and super nice people that offer you a warm welcome everywhere you go.

Thanks to all that made this trip happen and especially to our guide Joakin who gave us the feeling of a trip with your friends. I´ll be back for sure …..
So should you ever get the chance to go there …. DON´T MISS IT!!

Last saturday was one of the hottest days in munich this summer and the day for the third stop of the Munich Be(a)st Tour 2012 @ Hirschgarten Bowlpark.
It was a perfect day with great people, incredible skating and a lot of fun.

The Munich Be(a)st Tour is a newly invented skate contest series in 4 of the best skateparks in and around munich and is organisated by the „Skateboarding München e.V.“ to get the munich skatescene back alive. Please take a look at their website for more information about their work and the ways to support them …. COME ON, DO IT!!!!

Here are some impressions of this great day:

I´m super proud to be finally part of the „RadShot“ project.

It is the Photoblog of Ed Blomfield, the Photoeditor from UK´s finest Whitelines Snowboard Magazine, where he features shots from the past season that didn´t make it into the printissue.
He updates the blog nearly every day with a new Bängershot from the best photodawgs from all over the world.

So to have a good white start for every day put it into your linklist, like it on Facebook and SPREAD THE WORD.

So here we go with my introduction shot:

Summer work

Even when the summer in Munich doesn´t deserve his name, I´m really into summermode and doin some other work than racing trough the mountains and trying to get good shots.
And the other side of my workinglife is the graphic/layout thing.

And when the summer here isn´t happening and you have no money to follow it there is nothing better than having it on your screen, so this year I started layouting for „Tide Mag“ a Munich based surfing magazine. It´s quite a lot of fun and you have the best surfspots and surfers around the world right on your desk.

End of Jule the first issue I have completly (exept one story) layoutet came into the shops nd I think I´ve done a good job. But hey check it for yourself and get an issue!!

For more information about the mag and surfing check tidemag.com

Here are some snippets from the issue:


That is you should look for in your local bookstore

Sorry for being a little lazy with updates in the last time, but it´s summer and EM time so there was nothing worth blogging.
But now there are news more than worthy for an update:

Since this week I´m official the new staff photographer for Head Snowboards and I´m more than stoked on this.
Because it means I get the opportunity for travelling and shooting the whole next season with a great team all over the world …. YEEEEHHAAAA!!

For more information about the Head team and their great products take a look on their website.
