// What Kitesurfing means to me
Kitesurfing is not a sport, it’s a feeling, a way of life. When I hit the water, I feel alive. I’m in my element, completely in the present, attentive. I feel like myself, like everything is how it’s supposed to be, everything is right and make sense. Kitesurfing gives me an adrenaline rush, makes me totally excited and at the same time has kind of a meditative aspect. Put shortly, Kitesurfing gives me the best feeling and the biggest smile ever.

// What’s up with the name, “Wake Up Stoked”?
I was looking for a name that would not only describe my passion for kitesurfing but also the whole lifestyle that emerged around it. It made me pursue a completely different kite-work-balance, change my whole life in order to live a lifestyle with more freedom and travel that would still give me the possibitlity to work in my profession at the same time. Kitesurfing made me change my priorities: I now wrapped my whole work life around kitesurfing, not the other way round as I did before, and this is my quest for a way of life that makes me wanna jump out of bed excited every morning – shortly put: Wake Up Stoked
