Hightide SUP event Haarlem- Mooie Nel 1th of july 2012
Going SUP 100% with my family ! a great event was organised by Hightide, at the 1th of july.
As my sister and her husband were going to SUP for the first time, they joined in a SUP clinic.
on the left my Sis,brother in law and the little one is my son.(the one with his own carbon paddle ;o) )
My surfbuddy Martijn de Man... to bad he cant go windsurfing anymore because bad knees...he is now fully admitted into the SUP-ping. Way to go Bro!
it was to windy for the rooky suppers, thats why a boat brought us to the other end of the Mooie Nel / lake. What an organisation! thumbs up.
Here is Pascal doing his first few metres..he enjoyed it a lot and told me afterwards he found it very easy and fun to do! He was one of the less who didnt fell of his board at all.
My Sis Daisy! enjoying it a lot, after todays supsesh she is searching for her own SUP and calling me reguarly to go supping with her :-) Stoked!
My boy on the custom malibu windsurf-Sup. It was to windy for him though, on the big lake the wind took him along and made him drift away quickly. But got picked up two times by the organisation. If they werent around i wouldnt be supping in such strong winds with him anyway. once more thumbs up for the crew!
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?
