Linus’ enthusiasm for boards is already anchored in his DNA. His father passed his passion to the young Linus when he encouraged him to wakeboard, snowboard, windsurf and skateboard at a very young age. It was only a matter of time before kitesurfing appeared on this list.
Linus was only 9 years old when he was allowed to kite for the first time. From that moment on, he took every opportunity to get on the water and train. During the week we went directly after school to the North Sea or Baltic Sea for extended afternoon sessions. His first appearance at a contest finally took him to the German Championships in 2008 and he promptly finished third.
Today Linus is one of the top riders in Germany and one of the best in the world. As a professional athlete he works constantly on himself and his skills on the water. At the same time Linus is always a surfer like us, who likes adventures, is relaxed and never too bad for some fun;)
