Wijk aan Zee was going OFF with SIDE TO SIDEOFF conditions 22th-Nov.
It's been a while, that I've been on the water but last sunday the 22th of november i just didnt wanted to miss out on this one.
The forecast was great. Side to sideoff conditions with loads of wind.
During the drive towards Wijk the wind was around 6 to 7 beaufort, with a little peak of 9 beaufort. The sun came in and the wind dropped when i arrived. I decided to rig on a 5.0 m2 Sado 2010 with my SOS 82.
A save combo as i didnt knew what the wind was going to do. The Parking was way crowded, but got lucky to park next to The Lamp at the entrance of the dunes.
Bought a P7 rdm mast from the Lamp and rigged up my set.
The Lamp was going off today as always. I heard from him he changed today 4 time his rig? everything the wrong choice of sailsize. Im glad id sticked to the 5.0m2 all day. Saved me a lot of unnescaserry walking up and down the hills.
My dad came by today to shoot some pictures. Ive taken a few pictures aswell myself.
My surfmates Torben and Martijn also at the spot.
The funny thing was, all sailing POINT-7.
Torben had a 'test'P7 sado 4.7 m2 from zuidwest6.nl
and Martijn rigged up his good old sado 4.7 2009
There was unfortunately a lot of action moments missed on camera today, but a few nice close shots were taken
At the least, wanted to mention that it was a great day to be on the water again. Í've had a few really nice waverides on the bigger waves from today. Hoped that one of them was spotted on camera but unfortunately they were not. Felt great to have big spray at the topturn.
For now the SOS VS P7 worked out great. Hopefully more bigger and better days to come soon!
