September 10 - 2010



As soon I returned to France, Thursday, I worked a good part of the day on internet with Nils, the communication manager North Kiteboarding International.
We select some images from Indo for the next catalogs and advertisements North …
The same evening, after work, he went to do some stand up paddle on a river, near Munich, with his friend Marcus. Standing on a surf board on whitewater, I imagine that it can be really fun.

They were found several hours later, both inanimate.
Obviously, the circumstances of the death are unclear.
Some website speculates on the “Drowing machine” or dam-type threshold. Phenomenon well known to kayakers, it usually occurs when there is a step to pass over a river. More important is the flow and turbulence more it’s difficult to come back to the surface.
Another case cited, the leash, which, by blocking under a rock, could be the cause of this tragic accident. A report, and it is a very important fact that the two men were not beginners and were equipped with life jackets and helmets.

I joined the office of North Kiteboarding Wednesday in Germany for the funeral.
There were many people, riders of all worlds, kitesurfing, snowboarding, surfing … Nils was someone passionate fan of surfing, snowboarding, but not someone who rushes head down.
I felt it in his work, and he gave 150%, during 5 years, to grow the brand further, pushing riders from the team and kitesurfing.
Thanks for everything … and as he said …. Rock’n Roll
