Summer of big air and first times

The summer started when I got my new boat in Lyon and had the first session with it on Hawaii Sur Rhone at a low water level in the right channel. Check out the footage in the first clip. My second premiere I had later in the season at the German Big Air Championships over an artificial ramp. I even could achieve the third place and was more than happy because at the prize giving I was given my first ipod, so finally I got stylish too. But nonetheless I have to admit I rather prefer skis for ramps like that ;-) Check out a few jumps in the second clip.
