30 Mei 2019: Heavenly day at sea

sunday 09 june 2019

Ascension day 2019, Sun and wind. Started with the Duke 5.9 on the FSW 102 and MFC 29cm. Soon switched to the Single Thruster 99 to test it. Opted for the MFC 22cm with 12cm K4 Ezzy thrusters. Waveriding is very nice. When the wind decreased took the FSW 102 again, sailed until I could hardly plane anymore. Top day, sun came early, so delicious weather. Pretty fun waves. Could do some good testing of The Single Thruster 99, but need more time to test, the FSW 102 is a really good board. [Read...]

Long mast extensions 2019: There is no perfect one?

friday 31 may 2019

My 7 year old Neil Pryde UXT 48cm is broken, does not lock well anymore. Time for a new one. I am looking for a long 46cm+ extension that is solid and easy to use. That is not so easy in 2019. The Duotone extensions are too short, other brands have other disadvantages. [Read...]

16 Mei 2019: Afternoon turning winds

sunday 19 may 2019

Went sailing with the slalom competition guys at Oostvoornse Meer. Wind direction NNE, which is not at all favourable. Used iSonic 127 with Warp 9.0 and Z-Fins 46cm. Used a Power XT 2.0 for the first time: impressed. Wind was extremely gusty and turned a lot. Not a very nice session. Worked on the trim of the 9.0 a bit. Not really nice sailing, but instructive.

11 Mei 2019: Competition Training

tuesday 14 may 2019

Wind predicted: 14 to 18 knots, good wind for slalom training. Used iSonic 117 with Warp 8.0 and SL-X 43cm. Started with 5 practice starts. Then a total of 10 practice races. Had a collision with Coen, luckely no damage. With 16 people on the start line it is difficult to start well, couple of on-the-mark starts, few over-earlies, halve of the starts bad. [Read...]
