Lunchbreak Speedsession @ Horst 5-9-2012
working all day long was initially the plan.. but windspeeds of 40 knots cant be missed.
took a long lunchbreak of 2.5hours that ive been away from the office. I went to my speedspot asap.For the first time i rigged my smallest point-7 ac1-2k11 5.6m2 combined with my barely used AB+46 SPeedboard. the wind was still howling at the time i was riggingg up my gear. unfortunaly when i got on i had like 2 laps that it was windy enough.. the wind decreased big times afterwards. Ended up to much underpowerd,sinking, things like that. I sold my 6.3 and 7.2 allready several weeks ago.. that would of been the best combo a 80liter board with a 6.3m2. Im waiting at the moment for the ac1-2k13 sails to come in. if id arrived two hours earlier, a 10-12am sesh.. i could burned all of my Pr's for sure. sometime you win, sometime you loose. ;o) as it wasnt all that anymore and i didnt have bigger gear with me, i rushed back to finish up work.i found these pictures on the web, from a photographer, calls himself lighthouse;Thanks for the pictures.
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?
