Philip Köster - Man of the Hour

In case stacking up trophies wasn't enough, Philip Köster is making his way into the mainstream media in Germany. After being chosen as the face of the Volkswagen's Beetle and starring in their ads, Philip has just scored another TV commercial for the famous German brand Zott and their Monte, a creamy chocolate and hazelnut dessert. He stars in the advert along with his sister Kyra and shows off a few tricks.

The pretty funny making-of is also online, with a bit more windsurfing action and special appearances from the Tiki. Philip is riding his Kode Wave 77 Wood with a Neilpryde Combat sail. We know it's in German but captions are available!

Milk and chocolate aren't enough and the superstar is hungry for more! After winning his second PWA Wave World Champion title this year, Philip attended the BOOT Düsserldorf Tradeshow last weekend where he was awarded yet another trophy! For those of you living on another planet, Philip is now officially the Surfer of the Year 2012 with a staggering 65% of the votes!
