06 July 2021: 3rd Tuesday in a row surfing

Saterday 10 July 2021

finally: SSW to SW 20 to 32 knots predicted: looking forward to it. Sailed with Fanatic Tri-Wave 89 with Banzai 4.2 and MFC 19/10cm fins. Wind started south. With the tide came in, the waves become more fun, waveriding, more jumping. I made a couple of front-side attempts. It was a lovely day. The wind was gusty, waves often not great, but finally the right direction. The Tri-Wave certainly did not disappoint with the 4.2. Next time more head-to-head testing with the JP FSW 84 to compare them. [Read...]

29 June 2021: Another nice Tuesday night session

Wednesday 30 June 2021

Almost a repeat of last week, just a little less wind. Wind seemed a bit minimal for the 6.0, sailed with the JP FSW 102 with Banzai 6.0 and MFC 29cm. Water was not flat, a bit low, but tricky chop. Occasionally I could find a steep wave and I was able to jump, not much for waveriding Together with Ron and Stefan did some duck-gybe practice. Set was often a bit small, even with minimal trim. Very little floating. Nice sailing, unfortunately few nice waves to play with. Unfortunately, no sun. [Read...]

22 June 2021: Great session

Wednesday 23 June 2021

NNE 19 to 21 kts wind predicted, perfect for Brouwersdam south. First time with the Goya One 3 Pro 95 at sea. Sailed with my Banzai 5.3 and MFC 21/12cm fins. Wind was super constant. A lot of nice waves to jump and some for wave riding. Fins might have been a little large. Jumping took some getting used to: shorter board. Waveriding was great: board turns tight without spintouts, especially for a board this size. Sailed until I was completely empty. Unfortunately little to no sun, but otherwise a perfect afternoon, enjoyed! Hopefully I will be able to sail the Goya One 3 Pro 95 at sea again soon. Next time hopefully with SW wind. [Read...]

05 June 2021: Light wind and chop

Sunday 06 June 2021

Wind WNW, and not so strong: best spot: Blokkenpier, from there along the beach to the kite spot. Sailed the iSonic 117 with S-Type 7.3 and SL-X 43cm. After every gybe, it was bobbing. Waiting for a gust and then a couple of pumps to get planing. Hopefully helped by a wave. Once planing I could usually plane the whole length of the beach. Very long runs. It was tiring sailing, the chop/waves and also a lot of pumping to get planing. Temperature was quite good but unfortunately no sun at all. Wind was not as strong as predicted, but still a nice session. [Read...]
