Honored by the mayor of my home town

On 11th January the mayor of my hometown honored two young persons for special archivments. I was one of them because of my archievments in freediving.

In the pool of that little town I found my passion....It was the summer of 99...already 9,5 years ago.

Way to less time

Back in germany I promised my sister (and my mother) that I´m gonna join the deep dives on my sisters AOWD Course. On the day after the night dive we went to Canyon and Bells-Blue Hole for that. It was very nice and I was surprised how well my sister is diving.
Since I was diving on that day I lost a lot of time doing things for my house.
Anyhow I managed to get a nice small table for the living room witch is now not so emty anymore.
Finally a good friend from switzerland Pat arrived and we had some good dives together...even if we had some issues with our health.
On NEW Years EVE we went for dinner to Blue Beach and for new year we went back home to my was very nice and funny.
Well, in the end it I could´nt fix as much as I would, could´nt spend enough time with friends and could´nt dive as much as I would. On my flight back home I had a nice view...A nice view back Home to my precious Dahab.
Anyway...I come back...soon I hope

Judge in Berlin

Last Saterday (15.11.08) I was invited to the 11th Night of Apnea in Berlin. Not as a athlete - I was invited as a judge.
For me it was to first time working as a judge and I was quite nervous in the beginnig.
When I arrived at the pool many memories from the past came to my mind.
The first time I was here was at the 2nd Night of Apnea and I was 13 years old...the youngest competitor of the world.´s been already 9 years.

I was judging with Christoph Leschinski and Hans Pütz. At the Static Part of the Competition they took me into the middle to see how I was doing. My first athlete was Wolle Neugebauer and a static attempt.
Everything went very good. I just had to disqualify one person because of a wrong surface protocol. The dynamic competiton was also very good and all athletes at my lane did a great performance. It was a very nice and interesting weekend.

Bavaria Blue

Yesterday night we arrived at Percha at Lake "Starnberger See" to do some deep dives.
This morning we prepared our platfrom whitch is more like a houseboat with filling station.
It is very nice to be home in bavaria (the south of germany) - The water is clear and the sky is blue. Look like a perfect day!

Viva Espania - but no time for freediving

Just sitting here in Cadiz/Spain in the hotel lobby. Almost the whole week I was on one of our boats here and unfortunadly I could'nt freedive at all. The reason was that all the time we had to work and no time for anchoring somewhere. Also the underwater conditions in the atlantic are not so good as thought. Aleast I saw some dolphins and this was very great. I never saw wild dolphins before.

Anyhow...we had a great time here in Cadiz and we are very happy to spend the last night in a hotel.

Just got a photo of my new sofa from nikki:

5 Minutes

Todays goal was 5 minutes and I reached it again very easy.
I also got this special feeling back after that static session. Almost forgot that static really can be fun :-)
The rest of the pool session I spend with empty-lung-dives down to 5m which felt quite good.
Just came from the gym...had a very nice workout there :-)
Unfortunadly our flight to spain is delayed by two days. the reason is that our diving boat has to fight with very bad sea conditions. the good thing is that I can have some more static sessions until friday. But still - I already can hear the calling of the sea. My monofin is already on the diving boat ;-)
