STORMCHASE OF THE YEAR! 28 october 2013


For the first in the last 2 or 3 decades, we had windspeeds today upto 73knots !!!
About Force 12 Beaufort - Hurricane windspeeds!!

To bad i justttttt missed that haha.
The hurricane windspeeds were around the afternoon. I  arrived a little bit later around 2pm.
The wind dropped down to a 8-9 beaufort.


With my mate Bart ter H.  walking on the pier. He was being my caddy for today! What a friend he is :-)

Dragging my 2 swags 3.2m2 and 3.7m2 along to the beach.
David van Eyk   stoked getting off the water, just had the time of his life !
Once we arrived to the beach, rigged up my point-7 Swag 3.7m2.  Which was the best choice for the moment.
 
 
At times the gusts were upto 10 beaufort, but most of the time it was a good 8 beaufort with gusts around 9.

The winddirection was unfortunately quite onshore

. Great conditions for some floaty jumps.


I was SOOO very curious how my BRANDNEW custom would do on these massive and rough conditions.
It was the first time windsurfing on my Custom 'Jesus Christ' Flikka board.

 Full control going out, feeling loose, enough lift and at ease going to mushy white waters.  Because of the control i was able to pull out some big airs.

Massive floaty Jump far out there
landing one of them jumps

I didnt want to demolish my brandnew custom right away the first session, so i kept it safe ;)
Here below i tried to manage to do some onshore waverides.

But most of all i was very much  surprised by its controll in such mushy conditions.
I really wanted a board that gives me good control in stormchase conditions. I think i found it just right here!

My board has 5  finbox inserts, i tried it out today with a quad setup. Many more fin setups to play with near future.  Now it was filled with,
2x Maui Ultra Xtwins 15.5cm and 2x 10cm Maul Ultra Xquads.
I had more then enough lift, but still very loose and manouvrable.



GoPRo Black Cam vieuw!   Had 2 Gopro blacks on board! Maybe someday whenever ;) ill find time to edit some vid.

Going out through the breaks!

 
 
Lets go one more time...

boardkings.com   sharing the stoke!!


 
 

What a day to try out a brand new board.
The board handled it like it should.  Cant wait trying out my Flikka JC5box in perfect clean down the line conditions. Time will tell.
 
Conditions: Stormchase, onshore, rough and mushy - Test #1 PASSED!
