Butt session @ horst
A cloudy rainyday. Only enough wind when there was thunder going on.
When i got on the wind just left and it cleared up.
As i wanted to try out my newest lightwind board mistral-AB+123L i went into the water anyway.
It took about an hour before the wind picked up and was enough to go planing, combined with some more rain.
For sure it was a Joyfull session ,but okay i at least planed for a bit. Shortly after the wind vanished totally and the sun came up. Heard that the boys at wijk aan zee had a better (wave)session. 6 beaufort and sun all day long. Next time!!!! :-)

I’m 38 yrs old. The last 25 yrs I've been surfing along the Dutch coastline.
My fave dutch spot is IJmuiden-NL. At times I'm travelling around in search for the best wind and waves.
I enjoy surfing in South Africa/Capetown, France/Bretagne, Ireland/Brandonbay, UK/Cornwall, Denmark/Hanstholm.
Besides wavesailing, i am also into SUP’ing/Wave and cruising around on a SUP with my loved ones. Just love to spend time on the water.
Occasionally i go GPS-speedsurfing. My PR so far is max 78.5 kmh with an average 74kmh (5x10sec). Would like step up and go over 80km/h.
The main issue, i mostly go wavesailing in hurricane conditions.
Wavesailing always been my #1 passion. In that catagory id like to; work on my wavesailing techniques, land more backloops, tweaking tabletops, do Frontloops, with force 10-11 do insane high jumps.
Wouldnt want to miss out on a stormchase for the world. My 5-Oceans 3.0m2 3batten is ready to get wet! I’m ready for the next stormchase! Are you?
