German and Austrian Barefoot Nationals

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

The 2013 German and Austrian Nationals took place in Wallsee, Austria. We had a great week of training with perfect conditions  before the competition started. The tournament started on Friday the 9th of August and ended on Saturday evening. We first started with slalom and afterwards tricks. The conditions weren´t really good so we had to wait for the next day to ski the second round of tricks slalom and jumping. The next day it was still a little bit windy, but it was good enough to ski the second round of tricks and slalom. In the evening, the wind stopped and the water was good for jumping.

I hit a new PB with my first ever landed invert jump in a tournament (18.9m) and could get the third place in the international competition behind Stefan Wimmer (25.3m) and Lukas Heiss (21.6m). After we finished the tournament we held the award ceremony in a restaurant near the river. In the German valuation I received second place in jumping,  third place in tricks and fourth place in slalom.

Best wishes
