Messy and Mushy ! @IJmuiden-NL 26 may 2013

 Dejavu from last wednesday!

kill and attack! ;)
My board doesnt like kiters that much i guess.

Started the day with a Salt 3G 5.6m2 around 2pm... but that was just to minimal. I was not really able to plane. Decided not to wait to long and walk the walk.
Switched sails and took my 6.2m2 again.

The wind kept on dropping and stayed around 8.2 m/s to a max of 10 m/s. Sideonshore.

Wouter E.  took some pictures with his cam in the late afternoon when he was done windsurfing.

Once again it was really fun to be out there at the spot, that with almost the whole team of Boardkings complete!      Although the conditions where minimal as F..%

 Jacco testing his lines, the classic way! :-)
into the jibe.

 Bart ter H. first time on his brandnew Fanatic Quad 101 2013 !!! unfortunately not enough wind  for him on the Maui Sails 5.7m2.    But the big man, needs bigger conditions to go big.  Next time Bart, it will be your day!! That board still needs a good spanking!

I offerd Bart also a spin on the 5-Oceans 6.2m2, which he accepted ofcourse :-).

Huh...Erik H.  what was he doing on the spot? :o) He always goes to some kiddylake with north west directions, but today he surprised us all to come around and play in the real world wave conditions. :-))

I tried seriously to do my very best and make something out of it.


Hang Loose!

 Smashing those little waves!
Nice spray on the top.

More pictures from today, you can find on the facebookpage/boardkings see here below

Testing day @ IJmuiden 22th may 2013

Testing day... 

           the new NIKON telelens that is !!!  ;-)

on a Mushy day @ IJmuiden

From now on i have a really nice telelens  in my quiver :-)
An insane piece of machinery, the Nikon 300mm AF ED F/2.8. Combined with my Nikon D7000.

See below the difference with my former telelens. The second one from the left  Nikon 80-200mm F/2.8, third one a  Nikon 35-70mm 2.8 and on all on the rightside a Nikon 50mm F/1.4.

What an amazing lens! its heavy, huge and it comes with an aluminium flightcase.

Okay, its not the newest one... (Read: its old!) But it is a proffesional one which still works outstanding! I'm very happy with it.

The whole morning it was windy enough for 4.7m2, but had to miss out on that one.  I arrived around 1pm and the wind dropped allready.  Rigged up a 5.2m2 and tried to plane a little.

I made some pictures from the other guys out there, and the ones where i am on sailing those were  taken by my dad, who came around for some fresh air :).

Hereby some nice pictures from todays onshore mushy session @ IJmuiden

Here below its me, the funny thing was were were all 3 using exact the same sail/size Point-7 5.2m2 Salt 3G

  Torben on the right and im on the left.

My Flikka ED'S box Custom got always fans around him :-)

 the wind turned more onshore and became less and less.. around 4:30pm,  i switched sails to a superlightweight 5-Oceans custom 6.2m2 !!  Tried to do some turns anyway, but for sure IJmuiden was not going off today. Still i had my bits of fun out there.
