Freestyle.ch

At the 10th of July 2012 i was in a training camp with the swiss snowboard team in magglingen. during a little break i checked my mail: i got an interesting e-mail from Julie of the freestyle.ch event organisation. the titel was: Personal Invitation *freestyle.ch* Zürich 2012! first i thought they want to invite me as a special guest or something like that, as they did it the years before. i opened some other mails and read and deleted them- just rubbish! i scrolled back to the mail and started to read it….

Freestyle.ch, which attracted 32,000 to Zurich’s Landiwiese Park last year, is already eager to divulge what it has cooked up for this year. Getting it just right for audiences requires thorough thinking, but preparations are already in full gear for Europe’s largest freestyle sport’s event to be held on September 22/23 at Zurich’s Landiwiese Park….

all this informations i already knew! but then the following sentences made my heart pounding…

We’ve been fighting for a long time and are now very happy to invite you as one of first two female athletes to be part of freestyle.ch’s CROSSOVER SESSION (Snowboarder vs. Freeskier vs. FMXer vs. Mountainbiker).

It was unreal for me, many many years i went to zurich as a visitor and this year i will be a real part of the whole contest and ride at the cross over session! I was really happy and super stoked! As i know it is not an easy ramp to ride! But therefore i have six more weeks to train and i swear i will train hard! I can’t wait for the event!

this summer i get the change to go to hossegor with the swiss team. we had some nice surf and tennis sessions and as well we did some fitness. it was wonderful to be back at the ocean to smell the salty air, to listen to the waves….

not two weeks back from the first  hossegor trip i decided to go back to france to lit et mix with two friends of mine. we took our tent, wet suit, bikini, sun glasses, sun cream…. at the camping lit et mix we met some friends from back home and we could share the camping space with them. our tent wasen’t even built up, we run into the next two friends from switzerland! unbelievable???! every where you go you will find this swiss peeps :)!

first day at the beach: we went to a surf rental to get some boards but they wanted to let us pay 17 euros for day. we thought it is a little bit expensive. we react and took the car and drove back to the hossegor outlets. my friend and i returned back to the camping with two new surfboards. from that time on we had our own boards, no one could stop us go surfing every day!

Image

after 4 nights sleeping in the tent we moved to an apartment more up north to hourtin. our two friends which only came for this week, were all ready at  the apartment waiting and they couldn’t wait to enjoy the waves and some good summer days! during this 10 days we had wonderful weather, i could get tanned every day, could go surfing every day twice… summarized we had magnificence vacations! from a little group of three people we grow to a funny group of 7 people!

Image

that’s how my summer is! i all ready know what i will do next summer- booking a larger house in france and go surfing with even more friends :)! right?

Imageps: i wanted to take some wine home to taste it with friends. back home my mum teached me that the bordeaux wines have to be store for some more years until they are in a good age! now i need to wait a little bit and see how the wine will be in 3 or even more years! yes i am a wine tourist!

Magglingen

Snowboard: Das Swiss Snowboard Freestyle Team im Trainingslager in Magglingen

Um auch im nächsten Winter wieder an die Erfolge der vergangenen Saison anknüpfen zu können, trainiert das Swiss Snowboard Freestyle Team in dieser Woche unter der Leitung von Nationalcoach Pepe Regazzi und Konditionstrainer Diego Schütz in Magglingen. „Von Montag bis Freitag absolvieren die Athletinnen und Athleten täglich 7 bis 8 Stunden Training“, erklärt Schütz. Dabei stehen Sprungschule, Konditionstraining sowie Akrobatik- und Tanztraining auf dem Programm. Am Montag haben die Snowboarder zudem ihren Teamkameraden Iouri Podladtchikov, der mit einer eigenen Skatetour unterwegs ist, in Lausanne besucht.

„Heute ist es relativ easy“, berichtet Christian Haller an diesem Mittwoch: „Am Morgen stand Sprungschule auf dem Programm, jetzt Wasserspringen und danach noch etwas Rumpftraining.“ Also ganz easy sieht anders aus, doch die Snowboarder sind topfit und voll motiviert im Sommertraining. Die Stimmung ist locker – Max Buri sucht verschiedene, wenig haltbare Gründe um nicht ins Wasser zu müssen –, konzentriert – beim Stretching am Abend sind die wilden Snowboarder so still wie Taucher unter Wasser – und immer kameradschaftlich. Der ausgezeichnete Teamgeist, der die Schweizer Snowboarder schon so weit gebracht hat, ist während des ganzen Trainings und auch danach hör- und spürbar.

Neben Christian Haller sind auch seine Schwester Ursina, Sina Candrian, Isa Derungs, Nadja Purtschert, David Hablützel, Lars Bachmann, Michael Schärer, Lucas Baume, Max Buri und Pat Burgener in Magglingen. Burgener verbrachte Ende vergangener Saison noch einige Zeit in Alaska und wird im nächsten Absinthe-Film seinen ersten grossen Part erhalten. „Das war super, wie bei „Into the Wild“ – wir sind eineinhalb Monate im Camper unterwegs gewesen”, erzählt Burgener strahlend. Der Film wird dann im September in der Schweiz Premiere feiern. Bis dahin werden die besten Schweizer Freestyle Snowboarderinnen und Snowboarder noch fleissig weitertrainieren. So wie Isa Derungs, welche am meisten von allen vom Sprungturm gesprungen ist und unablässig an ihrem doppelten Rückwärtssalto gefeilt hat. Ob man in der kommenden Saison von ihr also Doubles sehen wird? „Nein nein“, winkt Derungs lachend ab, „nur damit die Bewegung mal im Kopf ist…“
