Starboard is testing a more first eco-friendly board construction. The Eco Board Project ambassador Florian Jung is testing the construction in South Africa. Starboard: The Ecoboard Project was started with one objective in mind: to be as energy efficient as possible. This starts by using raw materials that have a lower carbon footprint than those used today but with equal or improved mechanical properties. By being one of the fastest growing trees, Balsa wood could be one of the solutions to reach this objective. [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) Still tired from yesterday, so bit quiet freeriding. Started the Angulo Magnum 135 and Ezzy Cheetah 7.5. 85 cm wide board so easy in plane. Wind rose so board exchanged for a Fanatic Blast 130. Piece more lively and more playful. Wind rose even more, so smaller sail with 105 Goya: Goya One Banzai 6.3. The One had a 28 cm 105 vin who actually was too small for a miimaal gepowerede 4 lats 6.3. So other board with larger fin get caught: Angula CV1 100: top board. Top afternoon, lovely weather, wind took good, not yet enough to with real wave stuff lol. [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...]

(machine translated in 2018) Only the morning wind, so wind early to TWS, same as yesterday late afternoon, so Goya Bolt 105 with North E-Type 6.6. And that was delicious. Very fine freeride set. In the begineen flying fish just for me considering: fat! Unfortunately my GoPro. When those Goya Bolt 105 a top boardje. That was really a few hours. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Unexpectedly however, wind, not much but still had to can. First the NCX 7.0, which was clearly too small. After that I could happily the Falcon 136 with Warp 8.4 F2017 suits, it was minimal, but could with good pumps much planing. Then to the side gone and the AHD AFS-1, a foil board getting caught. First with an Ezzy 6.1, but it was too small. Then again with the NCX 7.0. Now getting enough pressure. Foilen is damn hard, and very vemoeiend. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) First day wind in El Medano, from the wrong direction yet though. Taken the time to get used to the spot, so a free race taken set: Goya Bolt 115 with Severne NCX 7.0. Light and easy sailing set. Wind was quite gusty West wind, the mountain is in the way. Finally reasonable mn turn found on the water. Short-arm was too hot. [Read...]
