European Championship Podersdorf (Austria)

I just got back yesterday from wonderful Austria!! We had there the first stop of the Kitesurf European Tour, and I'm just supper happy for my results, both in freestyle and Course Racing.
I'd lide to give special thanks to Ronald and Julie for "adopting" me and treating me sooo good. Thank you guys!!
In freestyle, althought it is not my priority at all, I ended up in 4th place. I have to say that the conditions were not easy at all, as the first day, when the single elimination was done, the wind was super gusty and sometime with more than 30knots.

My great surprise was in Course Racing were I finished in 2nd place, after being 3rd the whole event. On the last day of competition, they decided to do the skippers meeting at 7am and we had the firts announcement at 8. Very light wind came but that gave me one winning race and a 2nd place on the last one, so I got a final 2nd place!!
The only bad thing about all, was that a jetski run into my 6m kite and they hat to cut the lines to relise it...
On the other hand, I'm gonna miss the next stop of the Tour as tomorrow I'm leaving to Cape Hatteras (US) for one month for a fotoshoting with all the Liquid Force Team. I'm really excited about it and I just hope Barcelona Airport will be opened tomorrow (volcano aishes). I won't miss indeed, the competition in Germany (Sylt) end of June!
So CAPE HATTERAS...here I come!!!!
