Esinemised ja näidistreeningud Eestis

28.07.2013 Esinemine DPD suvepäevadel Karepal. Käisime seal järgmiste inimestega: Rando, Kevin Hallop, Danil, Mairo ja Märt Oona.

10.08.2013 Pärnus Augustiunetuse ürituse raames esinemine ja workshop. Sinna tulid kaasa samad inimesed + tädipoeg Jannu. Esinemine ei tulnud just kõige paremini välja. Peab ikka tõdema, et improvisatsioon sobib paremini :D . Aga sealt sain küllaga kogemusi, et kuidas järmine kord paremini esineda. Peale esinemist lasime ka teistel proovida ja kui jälle ise liinile sai, siis tegi improt. Esimest korda elus sain improvisatsiooni eest ka raha, nimelt soomlased, kes juhtusid vaatama olid nii vaimustuses ja helded, et andsid lausa kask 5 eurilist. Peale seda võtsin ma enda Gibbon Capi ja läksin publiku käest meelelahutuse eest sente küsima. Lõppkokkuvõttes õnnestus teenida 5 Big Mac eine suurune rahasumma ja publiku raha eest saimegi söönuks. :D Vägagi korda läinud päev.

Slacklife in Germany

I had one free day in Estonia and on 6.july at 6am I took a plane to Frankfurt. From there at 11.30am plane to Munich. I was picked up by Germany Gibbon staff from airport. At first we went to see the competition area. It was gorgeous, surrounded by Greek pantheons. I meet a lot of new people from Gibbon Family.

Next day was the Munich Worldcup day. I had good feeling because I had  to compete against Jaan Roose. And finally we could speak Estonian in Gibbon Family. The competition was not so good for me because I had hurt my knee in Spokane and it didn’t let me to land my hardest tricks. But finally there was competition between Estonians.

At the same day there was the biggest slackline competition in history.
Carlos vs Jaan was the best competition I have ever seen. Totally new generation.
10.july night we arrived to Outdoor camping area. Before going to sleep  Andy Lewis discussed about that match between Jaan and Carlos. He thought that there should be video analyses after contest.
11.july we checked out the Outdoor competition area and there was One Trick Competition. I didn’t competed because of my knee injure. But Jaan Roose showed his best combos like backflip to backflip to backflip, backflip to back bounce to front flip, back bounce 180 bf feet, dk backflip backbounce and many others.
I walked highline first time in my life. It was 40 m long and 300m high. Here some pictures:

The ending of USA slacklife

Sorry for so big pause.
Ocean City, Maryland with its endless beach, every day and night there were events and DewTour was incredible. Slackline on the beach- I love sand! First day in Maryland, Me, Gabriel and Gappai went out at 1am to Promo Slackline. Using city property without licence, we had fun. Second day in Maryland I went running at the beach in the morning and found one good spot for strength training:

Third day, we had free time to practise combos and I think I slack lined for 6hr.  It was usual before competitions.  After training I spent time in pool and relaxed.

Me and Alex Mason had a same plane trip through Las Vegas, we saw all the las Vegas, but only through window. But at least I can say that I have been to Las Vegas and finally we arrived to Spokane.

 For now Spokane World Cup is over, its been one hell of a week. In my first round I landed best combo of Spokane World Cup. Its called buttbounce front flip to feet to front flip to chestbounce. In that competition I injured my knee, so I will take it easy before Munich World Cup and Outdoor Open competitions.
Hopefully you continue to check out my blog, because My Slacklife in Germany is going to be up soon.
