Hip Notics 15/16

Hey everyone,

over the new year I went on a trip to Hip Notics Cable Park for 9 days to escape the German winter. First few days were awesome and sunny but then my plan didn’t work out anymore as it got colder and colder. Day temperature was max. 10 degrees with freezing water! Anyways I still had a really good time with my friends doing some off season laps. Did some cool pictures as well so all in all the whole trip as an absolute success! At this point I want to wish everyone a happy new year once again! Let’s make 2016 amazing!

See you soon on the water ✌️

Early morning session at Langenfeld

Hey guys,

This picture is from a great morning session at Wasserski Langenfeld in western Germany shooting the 2016 Liquid Force Stuff earlier this year. Just want to blog this picture now, because I am currently missing riding so bad. All cable parks in Germany are shut down now and there is no way for me to ride at the moment. The weather is getting colder and colder, as well as the nights are getting longer and longer… I really have to say. I hate Winter haha! During the cold days I am going to the gym often to keep my body fit and prepared for the new season. Anyway, it is especially hard for me seeing a lot of my good mates flying to other countries to extend their seasons with some warm weather laps, while I am sitting in cold Germany having to keep up with my studies. But of course school is important, too! At this point I really want to wish one of my best friends Ryan Peacock, who is also part of the United Wakers crew a safe winter trip and a lot of fun. I also hope everyone has a quick winter so we can get on our wakeboards soon again and shred!

Early morning session at my home cable

So yesterday I had a sick early morning session at my homecable Wasserskipark Aschheim near to Munich. We got up at half six and met up at the cable park at about half 7. I was really tired and absolutely didn’t fell like riding at all. In addition to that the weather was awful with 10 degrees and rain. However, after having arrived at the lake, I had a little run around the lake with my sister and a friend to warm up. After that run we got on the water, practicing some runs for the upcoming European Championships in Itlay in a week. I managed to land some good runs, but also had some bad stacks like a bad front edge after coming into the corner way to fast after doing a 315. Anyway, I’d like to thank the Wasserskipark Aschheim crew for giving the cable to ourselves in order to have perfect training conditions. Bet everyone would love having a cable park for their own.


Italy trip

Last week on Monday I spontaneously decided to take a train to Italy in order to ride at Star Wake Cable, where the Europeans are going to take place in two weeks. The train ride took me about 6 hours. My friend Timo Kapl was already out there. Riding with him was sick, because we pushed each other to trying new stuff. We slept at a house right next to the cable park with all the Italian boys, which was so much fun. I just had a great time out in the warm weather riding skins all day long. But unfortunately on Friday morning I crashed in the water and snapped my eardrum, which is why I had to leave a few days earlier than planned. But whatever still had a sick time and can’t wait to be back real soon for the European Championships.

I really love Star Wake Park. The atmosphere with the good weather and the amazing Italian vibes are just amazing. Also the people out there are very nice and the food is amazing! Everyone go check out Star Wake Park in Ravenna, Italy. Might be your next trip as well !


The Bricks Open 2015

Hey Guys,

so last weekend I’ve been to near Cologne to compete at the ‘The Bricks Open 2015’. The comp was on at Saturday, but my trip has already started at Thursday morning with a 5 hour train journey from Munich to Cologne. The weather that day was amazing and it was unbelievably hot for german conditions. After arriving in cologne at about 4 pm, I had a sick late evening session at Wakeboarding Langenfeld preparing for the comp. On Friday the competition training was on from 2 pm till sunset. The setup was really creative, but very challenging as well. Still so much fun to hit so many new lines at such a sick park -> The Bricks! I had a sick ride on Friday and managed to prepare all my lines and tricks for the main event on Saturday.

 

So on that Saturday I got up at 6:00 am to have a last ride in the morning before the comp. I didn’t really have a good ride, as I basically stacked every single trick I wanted to do in my run later on. Probably because it was just to early haha. This got my pretty worried, though, as I obviously really wanted to land my run. After the training session in the morning they sorted out the qualification groups. The format was everyone had 2 runs, best run counts with one line around the cable including one kicker hit and one air trick with a lot of rail hits! There were 40 riders registered, so there were 10 heats with 4 people, 2 making it through to the next round. I probably got the hardest heat with Dominik Gührs, Liam Rundholz, Max Reigbert and myself. I was sure I won’t make it through after having had such a bad ride in the morning. However, in the qualifications I managed to land my run, just as all the other three in my heat did. Everyone rode amazing and literally everyone could have made it. Then they called out the results of qualification group 5. I was so damn nervous to be honest haha! ‘In Group 5 Dominik Gührs and Bene Tremmel made it to the next round!’ I was stoked about the results, but still felt bad for my boys Liam and Max.

 

The next round consisted of a head to head format. You had to win 2 runs to make it through. They randomly put together the groups and I chose Nick Schäfers. A young little ripper from Langenfeld, Germany. I went out first and stacked straightaway, so Nick put down a solid run to win the first run. Second run Nick crashed so I only had to do a save run to win run number two. There was a third last battle to choose the winner. I went out first again and luckily managed to put down a solid run with hard rail hits. Nick went out as well and put down some of the sickest rail hits we’ve seen all weekend long! He literally killed it but the judges decided my run was a little better. This meant I made it through to the next round!

In the next head to head round I had to ride against some local rider M. De Ceglia. He rode sick, but I managed to win both runs against him, which meant I made it to the Super Final. Got me real stoked, as I didn’t even think I would make it through the qualifications after seeing that heat in the morning. But now I made it to the Final of the top 5.

The final consisted of Dominik Gührs, Niko Kasper, Alex Aulbach, Maurice Prior and myself. Dominik went out first, then myself, Niko, Alex and Maurice. I managed to land a solid first run with a Nose Moby Dick and etc. Unfortunately I messed up my transition rail hit, but whatever. Alex and Niko also managed to land sick runs. I was sure I was definitely not on the podium, especially because I stacked my Nose Moby Dick 5 in my second run. However, after the final they called out the results at the award ceremony. 5th Place Maurice Prior. 4th Place Dominik Gührs. I was so surprised I made podium!!! 3rd Place Niko Kasper. And 2nd Place Bene Tremmel! I was so happy and stoked I came 2nd at the Bricks Open!!! And the winner Alex Aulbach! Well deserved! Alex landed a legit run!

Anyway, I want to thank the whole The Bricks crew for putting up such a sick event, with a creative setup and a sick format!
Can’t wait for 2016 !!!

Thank you for reading and see you soon!

Wake Masters Competition Munich

Hey Guys,

so today I had a local German comp at my home city Munich. The setup was pretty sketchy, as it consisted of a tiny spine kicker and a short shape tube all at a system 2.o, which was probably only 3,5 meters high with a rope length of 5 meters. It was really hard to actually land any hard tricks, as the cable was shaking very bad, as soon as you did any air tricks. Anyway, everyone had two turns during their run, trying to fit the most and best air tricks, rail hits and kicker hits in. This was so stressful! However, I decided to ride Open Men , although I could have still joined the Junior Men category. In the final I was able to put down a solid run with tricks like a off water crow mobe and a hs fs 7, which were really hard tricks according to the challenging setup. Anyway I finished the final with a 2nd place and so got beaten by my bro Dominik Schwarz by only 0.67 points! Unfortunately couldn’t land my second run to take the win, but whatever. Still had tons of fun today. The weather was sick with about 36 degrees, as well as the location, right in the city centre of Munich! And to finish off the day I had a refreshing beer shower during the award ceremony. Successful day haha!

Thanks Bene 🙂
