- Inline- Skating is gliding joyfully over the street and a little bit like flying
- Inline-Skating brings happyness and success to everyboby:
1. better fitness without stressing spine and joints
2. better skill better power
3. faster and foreseeing reaction
4. better balance of the body
5. more self-assurance because of feeling better
6. good figure
- Inline-Skating means being tolerant, and to show a great responsibility and consideration towards other people and environment.
Now I live in my beloved mountains in Hohenschwangau.
I go on my own track (which is not overrun by tourists ) directly up-hill from my home, to the castle Neuschwanstein, into the mountains, into the nature resort with untouched nature, a former hunting area of the Bavarian kings.
In the summer I start with Inline-Skates, in winter with ski with the skates for the ice in my rucksack, from my home straight to one of the lakes near by.
As I want to share my joy and enthusiasm with other people and friends I am engaged in tourist service.
Not only do I give lessons, I also make guided tours ( I was educated by the DAV the German alpine association)
