29-9-2012. Cruising at The lake
Had a busy day. But found the time to surf max 1:45 hours in the afternoon before i had to rush home again. :-)
I wanted to improve my gps pr on the hour. Its like 31kmh so far. But it didnt work out today. To many windless moments. Ended up with an hour of 30kmh. ;-) just 1kmh below my pr.
I didnt do any downruns or whatsoever. Just cruising up and down the lakes, endless jibing for max 1:45 hour non stop. I didnt fell of once. :-)).
Mistral AB+ 123L
About the sail i was using 7.9m2 AC1 2k12.
Is such an inprovement to the former ac1 2k11 . They feel lighter in hands and the rotation is so much better now. Havent done any speed/downruns with it but someday i will and see how fast i can go with them. I do need to try out a wider boom one of these days. On a al360 e3 carbon waveboom160-220. The sail hits the boom to easily and i always have to pull the uphaul a bit more then needed. So it wont go far over the boom. Anyways it was a nice day to be on the water again.
Todays windstatistics on the spot 12-21knots max.
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?
