Kitesurfing in Denmark

On Tuesday last week Hans-Peter Seibold from Salzburg and me (Bernhard Gruber) we drove to Denmark for Kitesurfing holidays. The Distance from Salzburg was 1270km’s and we need 11.5 hours.
Unfortunately they don’t have the euro, so we had to exchange the money. On Wednesday we arrived early in the morning and we checked in to the skaven camping near tarm at the ringkobing fjord and we joined the kitecollegues Markus Mühlbacher and Daniel Ripper from salzburg. We slept for some hours in our tent and then we go to the beach, yeah thats life. sun, sideonshore wind (southwest), lot of place, lot of time…. Rocking Rocking Rocking.
at evening we did some nice cooking with the camping gas cookers. we were very lucky to have Hans-Peter Seibold in our team, because he is a professional cook. His Slogan is “… I COOK THEREFORE I AM…”
On Thursday and Friday we went kitesurfing at the skaven beach too. It was raining sometimes in the night or in the morning, but when the sun came there was wind. and we are not made from sugar so that was no problem for us 😉
at the evening we also tried some games like slacklining, the wikinger game, and the crap game “mäxchen” where you have to try to lie as good as possible which was not easy but very funny.
we had also nice neighbours at the camping place (frank, tina and christian from denmark).
On Saturday we drove to Hvide Sande, that’s a very good spot beside klitböller for wavekiting in the northsea.
it was strong northwestwind with waves up to 1.5m predicted so we took our smallest kites to the south beach of Hvide Sande and got some information from the lifeguard.
First it was “normal” strong wind with some waves.
to get outside need a little bit of experience but with a little bit of downwind direction of the board or jumping over the beach break we got outside to the nice great waves. what a feeling. i remeber my last holidays in vietnam in mui ne, where we also had such condition every day but with warmer temperature…
we did a three hours wavekite session and the wind was getting stronger and stronger. i did some high jumps with my 10m² north vegas 2008 but 3 times i lost my board and one time my kite dropped into water. on two times i had to go outside to the beach and every time a kiter brought me my lost kiteboard to the beachside. so thank you very much. the wavekiter here take care for each one, because one fault and if you are unlucky you can end somewhere in the ocean. i think in austria we also should try open our eyes and help each kiter with problems if possible and needed.
Hang Loose!
We met a judith, a windsurf instructor from hamburg who is working in Bork Havn.
Thx for Hans-Peter for taking many nice shots!
Markus dropped his kite into the water and had to go out to the beach because of an open vave from the maintube.
On Saturday evening we felt very tired into the bed.
On Sunday we did some Kitesurfing in skaven Beach again.
On Monday we (Markus, Dani and Bernhard) did a Downwinder from Bork Haven to Skaven. First we did a one hour flat water session with offshore wind and then we decided to go to skaven. that was really great. you can imagine you can jump every time and you don’t have to take care not to drift away from your starting point. we had a lot of fun and we tried many jumps! muhaaaaaaa.
then we drove back to bork havn and visited the bork haven surf shops for some burgers and fish breds and danish girls ;))
do you know that the danish girls don’t wear underwear? really!
ok. Monday evening was our last evening so we did a nice cooking again and visited our neighbours for some gammel daenks (alter däne). that is a strong alcohol and a daenish coffee. thx!
On Tuesday it was a sunny day again so we used the nice weather to clean and dry our kites.
At miday we checked out and hans-peter and me we drove back home to austria. Markus and Daniel they drove to Römö and then to St. Peter Ording to visit a Championship from the Kite Professionals.
On Wednesday at 2:30am i arrived in losenstein.
What a nice Holiday! So anyone who is interested to go to denmark for wavesurfing in the autumn, just call me!!
the bigger the wave the better! Wowww!
