Monday 23 January 2023

Do you have a router and are you looking for a way to use it with a guide rail? In this blog post you can read how I use my unbranded (KBM) router with my DeWalt (DWS5021-XJ) guide rail.

04 January 2023: Great start to the year

Sunday 15 January 2023

I had a great start to the season today. It was dry with solid SW winds, forecasted to be between 35-48 knots. Most surfers were sailing with 3.2-3.5 sails, I used the 4.2 and the Goya Thruster 81.

Friday 30 December 2022

Wind dead south, almost ZZO. So the water was very, very flat. Sailed the Banzai 5.3 with the Wave Slate 96 and 21/11cm fins. 5.3 was the largest size I had with me. With minimal trim in the 5.3 I could always plane, but 6.0 would have been better. Not cold, no rain while sailing. Unfortunately, the direction was very SO. [Read...]
