from SOS RF82 tri TO Goya Quad 104L @ WIJKIKI 26-april 2012
As the forecasts were quite good for today, i took a midday off from work and
drove to Wijkiki asap!
rigged up a sado2g 5.0m2 and took my SOS Rocketfish Tri 82L.
The Torb inator :-))
BoardKings team member Erik Haans
I had my bits of fun out there and shot a bit of film with the gopro hd2.
-------update: 9-5-2012: a short muvee of todays sesh!
for a while the wind was on and off.. and later on it unfortunately stayed off.
It didnt take long before the wind dropped to a minimum. walked back over the dunes to the parking and rigged up a another set
At the end of the day i was testing the float of a Goya Quad 104 2012 from Lampie, Martin ten Hoeve.
i borrowed his 5.9m2 aswell, as i didnt brought any big sails with me.
the wind was too less to do a bit of planing.
When i walked back over the dunes to the parking for the second time..it was starting to blow again. ofcourse!
Overall it was a nice session, but short cause of the dropping winds..A huge stormchase anytime soon would be appreciated :-))
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?
