Last weekend I've been together with the DSM Group in Essen at the FIBO 2012 - the world's leading trade show for fitness, wellness and health - to promote FloraGLO Lutein. There I showed the Visitors how snowboarding works and furthermore we gave away energy shots to exemplify how FloraGLO Lutein can be used. Now I ingest it for more than a year, because it helps reducing glare and increases contrast sensitivity. So in Essen we messured my eyes again - with great values! Thanks to FloraGLO Lutein! My eyes are totally ready for the upcoming season!
Right now I'm in Portugal with the Austrian Snowboard Team. We have a surf/stamina trainingscamp here. Weather hasn't been to good the last days but today the sun is shining and the waves should also be really good...

So let's go surfing!!!!

Finally I am back on my snowboard. Its been almost a year since my main injury but after three surgeries, lots of physiotherapies and daily work outs i am totally recovered. 
The last days I have been snowboarding in Innsbruck. It was such great fun to be back on the mountain and hang out with my friends.
Here is a little edit of my first days on snow. I just hit the small kicker line since it was only my third time snowboarding.

I wanna thank all my sponsors, DSM with FloraGlo Lutein, O'Neill. K2 Snowboards, Smith Optics and 69 Slam for the support during the hard time of my injury.

Bad Bad News

I still had a lot of troubles with my knee, although I underwent surgery in the end of September. It hurt almost all the time, when I was climbing the stairs, when I had to walk long distances… so I was unable to work out and get my strength back. After multiple alterative treatments (including acupuncture) without a positive result we decided that I have to undergo surgery again. Dr. Hoser suspected some kind of inflammation. He performed surgery on Friday and he really found an inflammation in the area of my ACL.

After my second surgery I hope that my knee gets better soon. The next three weeks I will be working out as hard as I can so I can snowboard again in January.

My Knee was supposed to get better over the summer but when I first went snowboarding in September I recognized that it didn’t. So I went to see the doctor and he had to tell me that the cartilage in my right knee is injured. It happened when I broke my fibula in March but he couldn’t see it then. My doctor performed surgery the next day.
I am working out ever day to get my muscles back. I don’t know when I can snowboard again. It depends on how fast the healing process goes.

Bad News

My Knee didn’t get better after my Slam. Actually it got worse so I went to the hospital. The doctor diagnosed a broken fibula. It is not that bad because it is just a rip in the bone. But I can’t snowboard for the next 4 weeks.

I am really disappointed because I got an invitation to the European Winter X-Games and I am not able to go there.
