German SUP Championships Ocean SUP & WINGFOIL FESTIVAL 2022 – Technical & Longdistance.
Very tight and fair battles with Susanne Lier in both races.
The “downwinder” had some tough upwind/ sidewind parts. Conditions made for the 404 Jump where I could lead until 1 km before the finish. Congrats to Susanne Lier and Paulina Herpel
On the next day we had the final of the Technical race. Wind and waves made it a real ocean race – and it was a thriller! Leading from the start, Susanne overtook me but I could overtake her again at the beach run. All ended in a final showdown running to the beach through the water, where I almost fell. All my friends, the kids and parents cheering made me fly but arriving at the finish my legs just couldn’t keep up anymore what a crazy race but I’m super stoked about this title!
This year my focus was more on coaching others, so it was difficult to get my own training program in. But spending lots of time on the ocean payed off. I went into these races without expectations but to see the happy faces and personal success of everyone I train and support, gives me the mental strength to perform. Thanks to everyone for the massive support and cheering congrats to everyone for their races in difficult conditions.
And big shout out to Lena Albano and crew for the great organization and to all my sponsors! German National Title No. 8 in the books .
