Website updates

I made some updates to my website It's mostly performance updates, but I also added some shots in the Snowboard and Personal Gallery.

River Surfing

Some photos from Munich's famous river wave at the Eisbach. Even though it's very cold these days a lot of people go for a little happy in-city surf there. It's great fun to watch, both: the surfers and the people waiting for their bus there watching the surfers. Check out the image on the bottom: two young swans missed their landing spot and hit the wave as well... little nature flavour added to in-city surfing ;)
Rider: Christophe Schmidt, who's home in all board sports

it's not winter yet

I'm really looking forward to winter. But right now you still have to wait for the winter to come and ride at the glaciers. You can either get quite good or bad conditions at this time of the year. Last weekend was rather bad so we just ate some Kaiserschmarrn and said "hi" to the birds.

good bye birds.

what to do in Helsinki with only one hour time

As I wrote below, I visited Helsinki for the weekend. Since I spent a lot of time at the trade show I didn't have much time to cruise town this time. But it would be a wasted trip if I didn't go downtown for at least a little bit. There's much do to and see in walking distance.
There's the famous market hall located at the harbor. The building in the background on the right is the president's "palace" right behind it there's the famous white cathedral. But first I walked through the hall and grabbed some delicious snacks... mmh yummy

the market hall, lot's of snacks are waiting inside

don't let the birds steal your food

Board Expo

This weekend I visited the annual "Slammer Gaala" and Board Expo trade show in Helsinki Finland. Here are some snapshots:

the Slammer Gaala stage

the crowd

Finland's finest knitwear brand represented with one booth only for "Phone Hats" this year.

I don't want to get political here on my blog, but Spiegel got an awesome collection of photos here.

work examples post

Two examples of my work. One is a photo of David Benedek used by Swatch for various purposes. This one shown here is from their catalogue. The other one is a page from an article in Snow Style, again... I know, but I can't help I like seeing my photos embedded in japanese text ;) Terje Håkonsen appearing in a TTR article.
