Ozone News:Glorious May - news in from Germany

Written by Ozone on . Posted in Industry News

In Germany, due to a bunch of national holidays, the month of May is THE time for weekenders at the coastline. Driving through the city of Kiel before one of these long weekends makes you think that 80% of its population have got to be kiters, windsurfers or surfers.

Vans are being packed at every corner and boards are being tied to roofs while sails are maintained in front yards and wetsuits, wax, sun protection and spaghetti are hectically being stashed inside.

At these occasions the luck of residing in a city located relatively close to the danish border leads to an enormous stream of Kielers tripping up north to Denmark. A couple of days are reserved for the hunt for waves and wind - feeling slightly exotic as „Hvide Sande“, „Nørre Vorupør“ and „Klittmøller“ just have a different sound to them than „Grüner Brink“, „Timmendorfer Strand“ or „Sankt Peter Ording“.

Even the drive of four to six hours (depending on where in Denmark to go.) suddenly seems a lot more worthwhile, with three or more instead of just two days on the water are to be had.

A bunch of Ozone riders have been taking the same old spin for a few weekends now, too. The old cyclus of wavehunting, hanging with friends on the beach and cooking Spaghetti in the evening before falling into the van - wrecked but happy. This year the temperatures were sometimes tough, to say the least. Nights in the van with two winterjackets, snowboardtrousers and a beanie are usually not the rule for may in Denmark – but happened this year. Still the trips wer worth every shive. Have a look at some amazing pics, taken by Lena Ley, Erk and Katrin. And make sure if you ever have the chance and the wind is blowing from westerly directions: Get yourself in a van and share a ride to get your dose of  beautiful coastal Denmark!
