Gunnar Biniasch News:Long overdue Update

Written by Gunnar Biniasch on . Posted in Riders News

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since my last update.  The reason for that is that I have had to take a hard look at my future in kiting.

I have decided that I am going to take a break from competitive racing for at least next year.  After 5 years of being in the game and my Back Injury still not being 100% healed I need the time to clear my head, fix my body and get back to doing other kiting stuff.

 

Racing has been great, but I have lost a bit of my motivation and the politics of the whole Olympic fiasco has been draining and left a bad tast in my mouth.  I am going to wait and see how the chips fall.  Is there even going to be Sailing in 2020 at the Olympics?  Should we be campaigning against the ISAF together with Windsurfing to get Medals for Board Sports instead of Sailing.  Imagine this:  The Board Sports Federation:  Windsurfing, Kiting, Wakeboarding, Surfing and SUP taking the 10 Medals away from Sailing in 2020. That would be a bright future and we wont need the ISAF and their politics. Lets see what the future brings.

No matter what happens I will be taking it easy in 2013.

  Next year I will be mainly focusing on three things:  Developing the Magma Foiboards, Slalom and Oldschool (Airstyle).  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also have another really important project called Xenia :-)

She was born on the 22nd of August and will probably be taking a lot of her daddies time from now on :-)
