Stefan Wimmer: Barefoot Training in Italy

At the beginning of September, Filippo texted me that his federation wants to organize a training competition in Recetto, Italy from 12. to 15. September.

For me it was great to ski a small training competition before the European Championship in October.

My decision was clear because in that time of the season the weather conditions in Austria start to get naff.  So I planned a short trip to Italy that I can train with Filippo for 3 days. My girlfriend Karin and Madeleine, a good friend of mine, came with me to support me at my competition.

On the way to Italy:

We arrived in Recetto on Friday morning and put the ramp into the water.

It took us about 2 hours to fix everything and than we started with our training.

We did two sets of slalom and tricks and in the afternoon we did a jump set.

On Saturday we planned to do a small traininig competiton of 2 rounds (slalom, tricks and jump).  The weather was good all the time but when we started to jump the conditions got bad. So we decided to jump 2 rounds on Sunday.

On Sunday morning we started at about 8:30 in the morning with another round of slalom and tricks and after that we jumped.

It was a really nice training weekend for me in Recetto and it was nice to meet a lot of waterskiers from Italy.

I will come back for sure next year  to ski a competition in Recetto.
