great bouldering action :)

Videoclip to 'Single for a week' filmed in Sardinia ... 
jups, the mediterranean can have some awesome waves!

aug - sept 2008

  One week israel, two weeks sardinia and three weeks
  west of france. Seeing friends, surfing all kind of
  waves, windswell and groundswell in all sizes. 
  After every trip, back to CH to organise stuff for 
  the al-berto music project. Crazy intense times, 
  but it was worth the experience. Below some
  impressions of the Quicksilver Pro in Hossegor

  42 days of riversurf in 3 months. I am so happy

  with the help of some mediterranean swell.

  The waves are sometimes perfect, too.

  Dave Gisler does the first ascend of Kiana 8B in Engelberg!
  It is a steep 6 mover line on tiny crimps, with a savage crux.
  Dave thinks it is an 8A+/B, but in the end its Barti who writes 
  down the grades into www.boulderberg.com :)

  Barti cleaned the line in 2003 and in 2005 they started to
  work on Kiana. Last year Dave was already very close to
  send it and Chris from Wales climbed the stand start 8a
  ... today was the day ... yepeah!

20. august 2007

  There was a lot of rain in the last two months over Switzerland. So there
  was not much climbing to do. Barti went looking for waves around Lucerne
  and found heaps of static waves. Most work only once or twice a year though:) 

19. july 2007

   toenails rock


   28. august 2006
   2 months in switzerland, 2 months away from the ocean.
   But there is the swiss river surfing on the standing wave
   of bremgarten. Such a good community. The wave is tiny
   and the people are so psyched to ride it. They gave me 
   a complete new view on surfing again. 

   9. july 2006

   The last 4 months have been the most beautiful of my life.
   I had the chance to live the here and now wherever I was.
   Wherever I was I felt like home. Now I am home and the
   happiness goes on cause the wave of life is everywhere.
   Surf it everyday and drop in into life, don't hold back
   cause you might drown in boredom. 

   3. march 2006
