What can i say about this session which was on 24 september 2012 Wijk aan Zee - Netherlands I'm not sure if i ever sailed in such windy conditions before. Hurricane windspeeds from 50 upto 60+ knots / like a full blasting 11 beaufort (alsmost 12) I didnt had the right equipment today. Cant forgive myself leaving my Point-7 SWAG 3.2m2 + my SOS Rocketfish 68L at home!! I never expected it to be this windy. I was on my 3.7m2 SWAG and rigged it +4 cm above the recommended settings. Otherwise it got blown out of my hands straight away. As you perhaps can imagine, i was not having control. Overpowerd is just not the right word..more likely Survival out there. Anyhow.. aslike coach Jem Hall recently said to me: IF YOU DONT GO, YOU WONT F***ING KNOW! note: This session was before i followed the waveclinic in Ireland last october 2012, coached by windsurfinstructor Jem Hall. ... I KNOW, i know !! Long Lines and NO W**king !! :P

As i missed all of the windy days last week since i got back from my windsurf/SUP Ireland trip, cause of work and babysitting on my own kiddies :-) i just had to have a little bit of TOW this weekend. So when the wind died on sunday.. i had finally had the time to go on ;o) On the SUP it will be. With a surfbuddy of mine we went to Wijk aan zee. Minimal waves, 3-5 ft high, a light breeze offshore. A whole bunch of surfers swimming around, meaning the Surf was up! ;)
