10 Augustus 2019: First time Kraaijenbergse Plassen

sunday 11 august 2019

Away with friends for the weekend, but storm in the Netherlands. Then you want to go surfing anyway. So to nearest spot: the Kraaijenbergse Plassen. Used the iSonic 101 with Crossride 6.6 and SL-X 36cm. Wind was, as expected on an inland lake: on/off. So often floating, but also often planing. Difficult conditions, but still nice session.

07 Augustus 2019: Sunny and Gusty

thursday 08 august 2019

17 A 20 knots predicted, took the afternoon off. Went to the Kabbelaarsbank. Used the iSonic 101 with Crossride 6.6 with SL-X 36cm and Busca 34cm fins. Wind was extremely gusty and turned a lot. In the stronger wind, the 6.6 was just not too big, and could almost always plane. That Busca is great. It was crowded on the water, so had to pay close attention.

31 Juli 2019: Nice day at sea

sunday 04 august 2019

Good wind predicted: 20 to 25 knots, so of to Zeeland. Used the Ice 5.3 al day. Sailed a lot on the JP Single Thruster 99 Pro, tested with different fins. Also used the FreestyleWave 102 to compare. Sail was often a bit big. Weather was delicious, nice and warm and the sun showed itself. Today, the SingleThruster 99 was more fun than the FreestyleWave 102. Was nice to sail together with Martijn and Marvin. [Read...]
