North Sails is back

Wednesday 07 April 2021

In 2019 North Sails windsurfing changed its name to Duotone. As a fan of North Sails, I didn't like it. North Sails is coming back now. Pieter Bijl has been spotted prototypes for a while now, now there are official photos. They are based on the 3Di technique. These should be lighter and more durable [Read...]

27 March 2021: Chilly sunny afternoon

Tuesday 30 March 2021

Forecast was max 8 degrees in the afternoon and WNW, so perfect for the Grevelingendam. Jurjen was sailing with 5.3, so took the Banzai 4.7. Good opportunity to try my own Goya One 3 Pro 95. Used the original 21/11cm fins. Nice board, enough volume, jumps easy, only in the air I notice that I have to get used to it. It was cold, but with the sun it was ok. Unfortunately not the perfect wind direction, but nice sailing. Very happy with the One 95. [Read...]

14 March 2021: Nice freeride session at the Grevelingendam

Tuesday 23 March 2021

After yesterdays storm, today WNW 5 bft, perfect conditions for Grevelingendam, no sun and therefore slightly colder. Sailed the FSW 102 with Banzai 6.0, had to use the AL360 180-230 boom. Started with minimum trim. Slowly the wind increased. Increased the trim, took a smaller vin, that helped. Later changed to the lower outhaul. Trim range of the Banzai is really huge. It was fun, a little cruising. Nice to have sailed on the Grevelingendam again. [Read...]

13 March 2021: Weather storm and sun

Friday 19 March 2021

Again a lot of wind, with Jeroen went to Kabbelaarsbank, where Jurjen later also joined. Sailed AHD with 3.7 and Wave Warrior 22cm again. Wind was strong, especially in the gusts sometimes spicy. Lovely jumping in the low steep waves. Gybing went clearly better than Thursday. Sailed until I started bobbing/sinking too often with the AHD, not a good idea: time to stop. It was lovely, not too gusty, lots of sun, but colder than Thursday. [Read...]
