As i havent been wavesailing for a little while, my hopes were on for today.
Martijn de Man and Me
I did had some doubts in the beginning about sailsize. Only in the gusts i was planing, but most of the time i was sailing underpowerd. With the low volume <68l i definately made a wrong choice on sailsize.
I tried De Mans equipment aswell. He was on a sado 4.2 and 75L Fanatic customboard with a too big of a fin. He should put an MU fin Xwave underneeth..The 75L custom singlefin from Martijn went quite nice upwind, but it wasnt my fave in the waves. Im too spoiled having my SOS boards. It didnt fell loose as any of my boards. Martijn took my SOS68 for a spin, and got positively surprised about it. I didnt thought he could go out on such a small board.. As he is normally always on bigger boards then i am.
The second part of the afternoon from where i changed sails from 4.0 to 4.5m2. i took my Gopro hd cam out to the water. I've made some shots
So for now a bunch of shots, that from todays session.
