Michi: I often have incredible luck with my trips, also because I usually travel during peak wave season to the right destinations. As I´m always searching large swells I have some unforgettable memories:

March 2001 : massive cyclone swell in New Zealand.

July 2001 : biggest cyclone swell of the decade at Australia´s east coast.

July / August 2001  : best Indo season since years, one month with waves over 6 ft and three really large swells.

2003-03-10: The biggest swell ever bombarded Europe. I was surfing the biggest waves of my life on Madeira while Belharra had 70 ft. waves and saw the biggest waves ever ridden in Europe.
