Hello Family, Friends  and Sponsor 🙂

In about 30 hours I will start my adventure to take part in the Fantastic speed event in Luderitz located in Namibia.
I am flying from Copenhagen to Frankfurt, where I meet up with Erik Beale who was the first windsurfer over 40 knots.
We fly on to Windhoek in Namibia and pack all our things in the van which we then drive another 850km.  The roads are fantastic so no problem but we should be sure to have plenty of water as we drive through the desert for 7-8 hours.
To those who have not followed my travels to Namibia before, I would say that it is a country with incredible kindness and you feel very welcome. So if you want to experience something completely
different you should visit Namibia as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed.
You can follow my adventures on this blog.
I want to thank my family, friends and sponsors who support me.

My Best support is of course my family ,Jeanette, Max, Bob and Olivia. I Love You All so much. 🙂

Mom, Dad and Sister with family you are wonderful. I love you guys

Then time for some sleep at a hotel close to the airport. On the morning 6/10 is it time for 90 km with car to Luderitz.
After 10h drive it`s time for a Big Coold beer at the Hotel Nest and hope for a good night sleep at the hotel close to the water

The Roots-shapes boards by NICO looks amazing and run perfect in my lightwind test. I will take the board to it`s limits when I get strong winds
