When I was booking flight tickets to Spain I hoped for good water level. We wanted to train In Ourense for European Championships which will be held there in end of July. We spent there 9 days.

Posted by Peter Csonka / May 22 '08 / 5 Comments

After the Bitches we went for one day to Augsburg to train on the local spot calls ‘’Waschmashine’’. This spot is amazing hard hole to train.
