23 degrees on 12 October, and wind, then you should go surfing. Unfortunately the direction SSE. Used the iSonic 127 with Warp 8.0 and Boss 44 cm The weather was great, wind just not strong enough. Good to known that I can still pump a board onto a plane, even though I'm not in top condition. [Read...]


Good weather predicted wind force 4 to 5, and a day off from work: surfing. Wind further south than predicted, and so nearly South, and so gusty. iSonic 117 with Daytona 7.3 and SLP-42 cm, later wind picked up, switched fin for the SLP 40cm. It was a very good day, lots of sun, but very gusty wind. Fine to get back on a free race/slalom set. [Read...]

10 degrees and 20 to 25 knots forecasted, top for an afternoon of surfing in January. Started with the Busca 34cm under the iSonic and the Warp 6.3. For the first time since my accident once again with the 6.3. Later took the Venom 32cm. Was a nice afternoon, sometimes very heavy. Was usefull, I train too little with the 6.3. It was not really cold by 10 degrees. [Read...]


Slalom training. Wind less then expected, sailed with the iSonic 127 and Warp 9.0. Tested different fins: Sonntag SL-P 46, 48cm and Busca 46cm. Usefull but cold afternoon, the SL-P 48 cm seems too big. Should spend some time to find a better trim need more pressure on my front foot. [Read...]


A day of slalom training at Herkingen with Jurjen. Took the iSonic 101 with Warp 7.0 en Boss 37.5cm fin, perfect for today. Great conditions for gybe training. The Boss gybes really easily, especially on flat water every gybe is a planing gybe. In chop it takes a little bit more commitment, but still easy. Too bad for the rain today, for the rest great day on the water. [Read...]


(machine translated in 2018) Rarely seen so busy on the point. A lot of acquaintances. Few hours with the iSonic 101, Venom 36 cm and Warp 7.0 dangers. Train in harsh conditions, because sometimes waves and wind were pretty tough. [Read...]


(machine translated in 2018) Together with Rob an afternoon on Kabbelaarsbank hazards. Snuggle up with the Warp 7.0 on the iSonic 101. Different fins tested: SL-P 35/37 cm and 36 cm Venom. In the chop is the Venom 36 cm still favories. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) After getting my iSonic 127 just go boating on the Lake Veerse Meer. It was pretty busy there, many well known of the club.

It was good pump training. Weather was good. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Wind was a lot less than predicted, ideal for the 9.0 LW to trimming. First time with my new Severne Enigma boom. Board was the iSonic 127 with Boss 49 cm. Good trim, wind went from a minimum to a maximum of 9.0 for the LW. The iSonic seems leak under the foot band. Informative/useful day. [Read...]


(machine translated in 2018) 12:00 from wind, something more than yesterday. All day dangers with the Warp 8.0 on the iSonic 117. Waves were higher and it was thereby heavy. Luckily today called 2 x through the preliminary rounds. Not that I have much chance in a B-final, but immediately saves a few places. Eventually 20th ended this weekend. Were the foreign PWA guys not been there I was just 16th again as always. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Wind came late, but luckily we were allowed to sleep late of the organization. Eventually the whole afternoon/evening with my new iSonic 127 North Warp 9.0 LW on the dangers. Level was high, certainly by the presence of Dutch and foreign PWA surfers. Today did not succeed to go through the qualifying rounds. Lelystad remains difficult in/out of the water. We have to 19:30 hazards. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) The plan was to take a long-distance to sail to determine who in which fleet arrived. Lack of wind did not. Too little wind also for official matches, so fun-races. I was in the B-fleet. 4 heats hazards. 2 x 4th, 1 x false start and last race 1st. Very happy with this result, I could very well come in the B fleet, about the level that I have always had.

(machine translated in 2018) Today 2nd time slalom training by 2017. 30 participants, very busy. Little to no wind. But good to get some light training again and stuff to test. Started with the iSonic 127 9.0 with Daytona and Boss 49 cm. When the wind was almost gone with the JP Super 90 Lightwind on the water, to the wind really was gone. The weather was great, good, nice and warm. [Read...]


(machine translated in 2018) There was ONO predicted, which can on the Grevelingendam pretty good. Ideal opportunity to agree to be friends with the Super Lightwind 90. The S-Type 9.5. First tried, then the Select S11 Deboichet 63 cm 61 cm. Wind rose slowly to the 9.5 really was too large. Stopped to forces to spare for the weekend. Very useful training. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) WNW predicted, perfect for the Grevelingendam. By work I couldn't asked his, so an evening session. For the first time since long again my favorite slalom set of hazards: iSonic 7.0 101 and Warp. Few different fins tried. Also the Trans-Am 6.6. It was cold, winter suit away, cap and even gloves were needed. There was whose on the grevelingendam, not fine. Luckily no rain, or hail, and lots of Sun. [Read...]


(machine translated in 2018) Last day of El Medano, a little more wind than yesterday: For cambers chosen: S-Type SL 6.6 on the Goya Bolt 105. That was full-on, in the beginning really borderline in terms of sailing large and then big waves. Perfect hard weather training. Walked around all day with a smile, what am I glad that I turn on this level. El Medano was fun, 5 of the 8 days. Lovely weather, 20 to 25 degrees, most days with shorty dangers. [Read...]
