IJmuiden - 16 mei 2012
I had a tun of things to do this morning.. so i got on late... To LATE..
As everyone was sailing 4.7-5.3 earlier this morning.. i had no other choice to rig on a Sado 2g 6.4m2.
I had a few laps that where worth while, but shortly after a low end tuned 6.4m2 couldnt even make me plane anymore.
Watertemp 12,8 degrees Celsius
Windspeed 10,2m/s gusts 13,8 m/s and getting less by the minute... when i got on it was like 7,5ms max 11ms.
Winddirection 312 degrees.
Some GoPro2 shots ; wavesailing the 6.4m2 on a Quad LS95.
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?
