03 January 2024: Nice start to the year

Sunday 07 January 2024

Tail of storm Henk, should stay dry for most of the afternoon. Sailed with the Banzai 5.3 on the One 95 with MFC 25/8 thrusters. Wind was WSW, so mainly sailing along the beach. Because of the direction you could find waves on both sides to jump. In general, the water was very flat. While jumping, almost hit Gert-Jan. Nice start of the year. Nice session, too bad there were so few waves. [Read...]

28 December 2023: Afternoon front-side wave riding

21 December 2023: Storm Pia was a bit disappointing

Thursday 21 December 2023

First day of my Christmas holidays, 11 degrees and wind force 7 predicted: Storm Pia. Sailed with Banzai 3.7 on the Goya 81 with K4 Scorcher 20/10cm thruster set I found Pia disappointing this afternoon, 3.7 with minimum trim was just too small at the end. Temperature was not disappointing, sailed without gloves. Had no rain. Even a short bit of sunshine. [Read...]
