Your craziest, best, funniest or most adventurous ride ever: The first pumping was in March when the weather was very cold. I thought a wetsuit would do just fine. I had no gloves, no neoprene shoes and no hood. Nevertheless, I quickly realized that the coldness of the water should not be underestimated. I was still in the water for hours and was then very happy for the warm shower. Nowadays I always have snacks, tea and good clothing with me so that I can glide on the water for as long as possible.
Other hobbies than riding a board on liquid water: Yoga and Kochen.

Pumping is certainly not the easiest sport. But you learn a lot about yourself.
Patience and persistence play an important role in this.
