Simply too good to leave…

Simply too good to leave…

Believe it or not guys: I’m still in Jericoacoara, Brazil !!

Huh, and it took me yet again almost another 5 weeks to update you on that .. sooorry!! then again, nothing world-moving has happened lately as it’s the quiet season, winterbreak… also us kitesurfers need a bit of peace & quietness some times…

As u guys might know, I come to Brazil every year (due to the World Cup Finals) and usually stay for 3 months. Each year so far, after 3 months – one would think that should be enough, yeag…? – I was majorly sad about leaving, however, did leave…This time: I s t a y e d :o )

YEEEEAAAAHHH, I did change my ticket and decided to hang out until mid-January 07. the conditions here are simply ‘too-good-to-leave-behind’. not yet anyway!! yeah, p e r f e c t training-grounds. jericoacoara definitely has everything a kiters-heart is seeking!I have kind-of-a-daily routine which a l w a y s includes the downwind from Prea to Jeri. most of the time obviously with my super dooper new 2007 Fanatic Mc Queen 2007 130cm Freestyle-Mashine, working on various new tricks .. however, often I also go surfing the sweet waves along the way with my beloved Rocketfish.

In 10 days it’s X-Mas and people tell me Jericoacoara will get crowded as hell around those days – yeah, the grapevine tells me about 20.000 people .. and that in my peace-paradise Jeri..!!? – so not quite sure yet as to what I will do but I think, I will go some other spot over the holidays to escape the crowds!? will keep u updated .. promise ;o)
