Most traumatic experience: I had an knee-injury in September 2009, after trying
to land a big kiteloop. 8 Months without any kiting was very traumatic. In Novembre
2009 I had a knee-surgery and got a new ACL. Now I'm still recovering of my injury,
but I'm back on the water again since May. That feels good and my knee is getting
better and better again. Hopefully I'm back on my old level soon.
