Professional Kiteboarder and Wingfoiler Stefan Spiessberger talks about his hometown Ebensee in Austria. It is exactly here where Stefan Spiessberger’s career started, where he first fell in love with wind, water and surfing. In this video, we take you on a journey to where it all began.
ION say: “We are delighted to announce the release of “Homeground Adventures”, a video featuring Stefan Spiessberger exploring alpine spots on his Wing. Two weeks ago we kicked off the series with “Between Highs & Lows” telling the story of William Robert’s comeback to Freeride Mountainbiking after a severe injury. Homeground Adventures is the next episode in our video series Write Your Own Chapter. Travelling the world in the past ten years has made Stefan appreciate being home again. Austria’s Alps might not be the windiest place, the warmest neither. Unridden spots where everything has to come together, are asking for adventures. In this chapter Stefan showcases why Austria is the unique Wingfoil destination no one talks about. Adventures in alpine territory, conditions that make you go out of your comfort zone and a rad surf community. Stefan wouldn’t want to have it any other way. Seek your freedom and Write Your Own Chapter.
▬ Write Your Own Chapter by ION ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ We are pioneers and passionates.
We’re in a constant state of dreaming. We are home though our mind is already on the next trip. We set out to escape the ordinary to express our creativity. Every trip is different. Every route is unique. Every ride is special. Heading out is the spirit that keeps us alive. We all share the same obsession. Experiences feed out imagination. The thrill is the fuel, that drives you beyond limitations. You never think of stopping, only sometimes remember the pain. The elements are our best friends and our worst enemies. Challenges are your inspiration. Imagine the impossible. Break free from the status quo. Be as addicted as ever. Be as radical as never. Be high when you are low. Be at full strength when you go. Be stoked by your confidence. Be in your very own flow. Be this, be that. Be real, be rad.
