ICE COLD WINTERSESSION @ IJmuiden 10december 2012
The other day i took the monday off work.
A northern swell was hitting our coastlines combined with crossoffshore winds.
Didnt want to miss out on that one.
When i arrived in the morning around 10:00am the strong wind i hoped for was allready gone , bummer.
The biggest sail i took with me today was a P7 salt 3g 5.6m2.
Rigged the 5.6 and underneeth my quatro quad LS95.
This combo rocks!
The wind was very minimal, at times 3 beaufort. behind the breaks it was sometime like 5 beaufort. the temperature was just 2 degrees above zero! seatemperature was even warmer this time (6degrees) Yikes.
i hardly planed on the way out, it was just a joyfull waveriding kinda day on the way in.
A Vid from todays mellow wavesession will be coming online soon!
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?
