(machine translated in 2018) Prediction: this morning was still wind, to hour or 1, then quickly decreasing. So I was early in Zeeland. Only a single surfer at Kabbelaarsbank. Few hours tested many different fin configurations under JP FSW 84 Pro 4.7 with the Ice. I start to feel reasonably at which fins good and which work less. Which fins for which and when work well. Very happy with the extra options under the JP FSW 84 Pro. It was delicious sunny. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Finally the converted 84 Freestyle Wave Pro with Thrusters test. Few hours with the Ice block dam on the dangers arising from the 84 5.3 FSW. Wind direction to southern for the lowdown. Number of different setups tried. Very fun and educational. It was less hot than yesterday, but have certainly not had cold. Wind was good, unfortunately he fell away quickly. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Few hours at Natural High dangers, very quiet, but just light winds. With the Ice 5.3 on the Syncro 103 dangers. Too many floated around, difficulty with altitude. The weather was good, had better deal with the 6.6. But nice to get on the water. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) On the Grevelingendam turned out to be the the WSW at 5 mph, always tricky. So opted for a slightly larger set. isonic 101 with the Trans-Am 6.6, only bought to see if a better fit than the more free race 6.6 me pure freeride Natural. Unfortunately with not paying attention with rig up: in the middle of the Grevelingen: pop, sailing slack. First reaction: cleaner string broken, torn sail? No, top put out through the top of the mast trunk! Oops. Should bother surfing back to the side, there turned out to be there. Again rigging and go. Not the best day, cold, many rain, first hour was the best. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Finally a good SW predicted. Because of conversion of my JP FSW 84 Pro I had to borrow a board: M. Fanatic Freewave 86, thereupon the Ice 4.7. Still on M. JP Freestyle Wave sail, 84 Pro 2013 fun, I now look forward to my own converted FSW with extra thrusters. Wind rose significantly and even here at my JP SingleThruster Pro 75. Not the best day of the year, wind fell out. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Late afternoon just enough wind to sail. Started with the iSonic 117 and my just purchased Warp 8.0, but there turned out to be the wind actually too minimal for. Nice moment to my JP Super 90 Lightwind give it a go try: S-Type 9.5. What is that thing big and especially wide in the back, who has a need, even the 70 cm long fin works really still under. It was a beautiful afternoon to light again to test stuff. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Surfing with Juanfer day 2, this time at sea. W/SW predicts. I Syncro 103 with Ice, Juanfer 5.3 4.7 the FSW 84 with Ice. Weird weather, wind turned NW, awkwardly at the block dam. The rain had not needed today, but the wind was good. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Surfing with Juanfer day 1. I started with the iSonic 127 and Daytona 7.8 and later the Mistral Syncro 5.9 103 with Duke. 7.3 the iSonic Juanfer 117 with Spirit. Even when I was full-power with the sailing was Juanfer 5.9 (10 kg lighter) still on the 117 with the 7.3: "I'm fine, it is narrower then the 9.5 I'm used to." Was a very fun day, was very cozy with Juanfer. Class, good weather. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) S2 Maui test day on the Kabbelaarsbank. isonic 117 with Daytona 7.8 dangers and a while the S2 Maui Banshee 7.6 tested: airy and easy sailing sailing. Class with the Daytona 7.8 on the 117, and fine I Fabienne with the Daytona still tracking. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) End of the afternoon wind predicted, so a few hour packed with the meat. 6.6 on the iSonic 101 natural hazards, for the first time agree with carbon fins. Was a nice evening, wind was gusty, but was good. Bad news: Benno and Fabienne I could not keep with the Natural. Jibes I can happily still better. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) We had agreed to go surfing and surf with friends after a BBQ. It was very busy on the Kabbelaarsbank. Started with the iSonic 101 with Natural 6.6 and S10 37 cm, which was often far too great. But wind was very gusty, and behind the port it was worse. Then the Syncro with Ice 5.3 getting caught. Yet but wise the extra volume 5.3, seemed like a good idea with this gusty wind. Was delicious, easy. It was not the best surfing day of the year, before that it was the wind way too gusty.

(machine translated in 2018) Another day with wind predicted, another afternoon of smoking. Wind similar, so again for the same set of chosen: JP Freestyle Wave 84 with 5.3 Ice but now with the Select Wave Warrior 24 cm. Wind was on the water less, giving you more west parallel to the side and so also compared to the waves. Few very beautiful waves know. 3 a 4 hits, even a aerial-of-the-lip done. Was pretty quickly tired, not crazy to yesterday. Was a nice afternoon, plenty of sunshine, fairly constant breeze, there were nice wavy. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Grey, but dry afternoon browsing the Brouwersdam. 1 set used: JP Freestyle Wave 84 with 5.3 Ice and Makani Kaku 26cmIn first it was low tide, waves, barely at the end was the flood and the waves were also gone. First time with the Kaku 26 cm: after sanding the print a top fin. Sometimes I had better with the 4.7. The 5.3 was often too big for the good one. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) For the first time in 1.5 years finally on sea hazards. Wind was harder than predicted. 4.2 all day with the Ice hazards. Started with the AHD, ideal for the harder wind, when that went are switched on the JP FSW 84. Was a top, clear blue afternoon sky. There were even a few girls in bikini to swimming. Some careful jumping. [Read...]

Started with the iSonic 127, S-Type 9.5 and SL-P 51 cm. In early minimal, wind rose slowly to that much was too large, direct switched on: iSonic 101 with Natural 6.6 and S10 37 cm. Diet by dangers to those also was too large. It was delicious, hot weather, nice breeze, bit gusty. Not too busy on the water. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Wind forecast took towards the weekend, but there was still 12 a 16 knots predicted. Delicious the time taken to Daytona 9.0 on the Epic 520 cm mast to trim and to try different fins. 47 cm Boss is on the small side, the C3 D2 52 cm and Select 50 cm seem very good, very different and both are not too large. Weather was great, nice and warm and fine breeze to have a good trim for the 9.0. [Read...]
