Didnt know what to expect really by arrival. Filled my car with a bunch of sails and boards. Should be able to do something out there.. Rigged up a custom sail from 5-Oceans. Curious what that'll bring. a 5.0m2 and a quad ls95 should do the job. right away able to test the high end of this board, in medium wind conditions. Most people were out on a 4.7m2 on 80liter boards. The 5-Oceans is an extremely lightweight sail. It for sure didnt took long to get used to. The swingweight is insane. The wind was quite strong, but on and off the same time. i think overall during the day 5.0m2 was a good choice to be on.
Had a busy day. But found the time to surf max 1:45 hours in the afternoon before i had to rush home again. :-)

got on around 15:45.. FLAT as a pancake.. crossofshore..within an hour it was 3-4meters max sideshore with a MAX speed upto 61knots BIZARRRR that is. Cant forgive myself not taking my new SWAG 3.2m2 with me in the car. Yesterday i was with my son on the lake with the swag 3.2, but today it definately could be abused bigtime in this biggest storm this year /ever? Beside that i left my stormchase board, my SOS rocketfish68 at home aswell :S. only took my quad LS85and LS95 with me.. sails 3.7m2 upto 5.6m2. Asyou can see i was not expecting to use a 3.7 anyway. Ended up extremely fully overpowerd with the 3.7 point-7 SWAG and a quatro quad LS85 underneeth.. one word : survival.
