3rd of april 2013. Location: Strand Horst.
This freezing winterperiod finally came to an end. YES !
Today i finally had the time to go out and get to play a bit at the lake nearby.
Rigged up one of my brandnew Point-7 race sails AC1 2K13 6.3m2.
Damn its a fine looking badass sail!
I took my time to get my settings right on the AC1 2k13 and went off.
the sail feel lighter then my former ac1's.. very stabile with lots of drive trough windlulls.
The challenger sails teamriders Aart V. and Armand R. were out there enjoying their new Challenger Aero racesails '13.
Today it was Black vs White ..... Point- 7 vs Challenger :-)
As its been forever ago (6months) that ive been on a slalomboard, it took me like 5 minutes to get used ;o).
Gopro hero3 black screenshots!
taking a little break with my speedbuddy Aart V.
full speed going in.
nicely powered up
Always wave when there is a camera around... SPEEDCRASH :)
Easterly wind (totally offshore at the northsea, not able to do a wavesession), with a force 6 beaufort and SUN! 16 upto gusts 29 knots. What can you wish more.
The rotating goes superb!
Jibing full speed , doing my downwind runs... as its been yesterday hehe.
and what about speeds?? well ive been cruising a lot today, it was quite choppy with this winddirection. The lulls werent long enough and close to the beach there was no wind at all. But so now and then had nice speeds. as on this picture below.
The quiver i used ; AB+54/78L + Point-7 AC1 2K13 6.3 + C3 Slingshot 23cm.
but as the wind dropped during the afternoon i switched boards to a bigger version of the AB+59/95L / C3 Slingshot 25cm.
