1.) You have accomplished alot since the 80s. You invented several tricks, written freestyle instructional books, competed around the globe and dominated multiple contests. How and when did you start skateboarding? why do you choose freestyle? How popular is freestyle in Germany in the 80s and how popular is it today?

I started in Dortmund / Münster in May 1983. I started with Freestyle because that is all I know how to do at the time.
Halfpipe skating did existed though. Miniramps, skateparks and longboarding did not exist in Germany at the time.
Not even the Streetskating, as you know it today.


In the 80s, freestyle skateboarding was just as popular as halfpipe skateboarding. Skateboarding was a great family.
At the present time, Freestyle skateboarding is not popular in Germany because not alot of people know much about it. As long as the big skate companies do not want to know about freestyle, freestyle will not grow. On top of that, there is no professional federation, organization that brings freestyle worldwide again.

World Round Up is an organization dedicated to freestyle. Very nice. I have a lot of respect for these people and it bring me joy every year. But if you ask a skateboarder in Germany, what is 'World Round Up'? Only freestylers and friends will know it. Here in Germany, Freestyle Skateboarding is something strange. There are also no offspring. In Berlin I am the only Freestyler.

2.) You skate alot more than the average person. How many decks, wheels, and trucks have you used since you started skateboarding? I know you compulsively keep a list of all this. Also, how many contests have you entered?

How many decks, trucks and wheels have I used in 35 years? Let's put it this way:
Every 2 to 3 weeks = 1 deck. Every 5 to 6 months =  a pair of trucks. Every 4 weeks  =  a set of wheels. Every 2 weeks a pair of shoes.
How many competitions. As of today (22nd Feb 2017) =  106 competitions.


3.) You have been rumored to train excessively, especially in the 80s. How often did you practice in the 80s and how often do you practice these days? Why did you stop skating for a short time in the 90s?

How often I train? In the 80's, I skated 5 to 6 hours daily. In this day with my age  = 3 to 4 hours a day. It's my job. I do not only train for competitions, but for shows. On the stage, I earn my money. In the 1990s, I took some years with Skateboarding pause, for private reasons.

4.) You are 40+ years old and still skating at a very high level. Do you regulate your diet or exercise to maintain your body at a healthy level? Do you have any injuries?


I wish I was at 40 years old. That would be good. I am 53 years old.
My day consists of: 7 o'clock to get up, 9 to 11 o'clock. 12 am to 3 pm office work. 4 pm to 8 pm. Not to forget, gymnastics morning and evening. I currently have no injuries. Eating well is also important. No alcohol or drugs.

5.) You have some of the most consistent and smoothest styles out there. You are also extremely good at linking tricks together with little 'setup' time. A perfect formula for contests. What are your ideal rules and guidlines for judging in contests?


Over the many years I am trying to keep a good level. This is because skateboarding is also a job for me.
Rules for contests is a touchy topic. One should keep the 80's freestyle rules. All new rules, such as 1 minute run or skaters against skaters do not lead to the more viewers. 2 minute runs is still the most popular. I only say Paderborn. Each year on a Sunday freestyle contest with 2000 to 3000 spectators.
