Last friday 31-08 i missed out on a huge swell and big winds, again cause of surgery and recover i couldnt go out. Bad timing i guess, but I found some time to edit a vid from last weekends session!
An impression of how it was like on the 25th of august @ Wijk aan Zee - NL.
It looks like it was quite a Tablesesh!
Finally some wind. Its been a while that ive been wavesailing. Stoked!
It was an on and off day with very heavy HAIL periods. That combined with a little sunshine! :-)
I think it was about a 6 beaufort to its peak in the hail a max of 10 beaufort. In those moments i couldnt see much sailing back to the beach.
I had no Point-7 Sails to use, as i sold most of them allready. My new ones are coming withing a few weeks. Luckily i could borrow a Maui Sails Legend 4.7m2 from Bart. Most of the day i was underpowerd, and yet at times fully powered up. At the end of todays session it was good for a 4.0m2 only i didnt had any strenght left to walk the walk and change my gear :-)
Hope you'll enjoy the vid.
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?
