Toby Braeuer: he finally got a discipline to be crowned world champion

For the first time in the history of kiteboarding, there will be a Airstyle World Championship event, as part of the the Beetle Kitesurf World Cup, in St. Peter-Ording, Germany.


The new spectacular discipline promises spectators extremely long and high jumps and fancy tricks. Whereas freestylers do quick radical and complicated exercises with high speed and short airtime, the important factors in Airstyle are the originality and fantasy, as well as hang time (the time kiter is in the air).

The Airstyle World Championship demands a top overall performance and an action loaded show. So, the flight artists will get up in the air and use their kite boards to perform artistic moves.

Toby Braeuer, from Hamburg, is regarded as one of the favourites for the title of Airstyle world champion. Who will be claiming gold, in the end?

The 2012 Beetle Kitesurf World Cup takes place from 6th-15th July in Germany's most popular summer destination, St. Peter-Ording, locted at the Northern Sea. The event attracts 150.000 visitors each year.
