Kayaking is my perfect way of traveling along beautiful coastlines.
I grew up in Eastern Germany and started kayaking 2002 at the big lakes in North East Germany. Quickly I have recognized kayaking on salt water is even more fascinating to me. Now I´m addicted to it and go on multi day trips on the big waters of Europe. Since many years now I live near Basel, Switzerland. In between one day by car I can reach many different coastlines around Europe like in the Baltic Sea, North Sea, Mediterranean Sea but also the large lakes in Germany/Switzerland.
Since 2008 I use Greenland paddles and appreciate their simplicity and versatility.
2009 I’ve started to support coaches and leaders of the German SALZWASSER UNION in trainings and tours on my way to become a coach/assessor and leader myself. Since 2011 I offer training courses and tours for beginners and advanced paddlers.
I enjoy to support beginners on their way to get into this sea kayak fascination by trainings, tours and workshops.

Des de 2008 utilitzo la pala groenlandesa de la que aprecio la seva simplicitat i versalitat. A 2009 vaig començar a ajudar monitors i guies de la SALZWASSER UNION en cursos i viatges en el meu camí per esdevenir monitor/assessor i guia.
Des de 2011 faig cursos i viatges per palistes principiants i avançats. M’agrada ajudar els novells a endinsar-se en la fascinació pel caiac de mar a través de formació, viatges i tallers.
