Alexandra Rüger and Christian Laskowski are from Germany and now live near Hamburg. Alex flew kites since she was a little child, and with her parents, the STAR -Team, she had been to many kite festivals. Christian knew kites from a young age, and has a passion for sport kites.
Alex and Christian met in the summer of 2007 at Kite Festival in the North of Germany. Both knew quickly, that they were meant for each other, and it was clear that one of them had to leave their homeland. Soon, in early 2008 Christian moved up north.
