Almost a repeat of last week, just a little less wind.
Wind seemed a bit minimal for the 6.0, sailed with the JP FSW 102 with Banzai 6.0 and MFC 29cm.
Water was not flat, a bit low, but tricky chop. Occasionally I could find a steep wave and I was able to jump, not much for waveriding Together with Ron and Stefan did some duck-gybe practice.
Set was often a bit small, even with minimal trim. Very little floating.
Nice sailing, unfortunately few nice waves to play with. Unfortunately, no sun. [Read...]

NNE 19 to 21 kts wind predicted, perfect for Brouwersdam south.
First time with the Goya One 3 Pro 95 at sea. Sailed with my Banzai 5.3 and MFC 21/12cm fins.
Wind was super constant. A lot of nice waves to jump and some for wave riding. Fins might have been a little large. Jumping took some getting used to: shorter board. Waveriding was great: board turns tight without spintouts, especially for a board this size.
Sailed until I was completely empty.
Unfortunately little to no sun, but otherwise a perfect afternoon, enjoyed!
Hopefully I will be able to sail the Goya One 3 Pro 95 at sea again soon. Next time hopefully with SW wind. [Read...]

Wind WNW, and not so strong: best spot: Blokkenpier, from there along the beach to the kite spot.
Sailed the iSonic 117 with S-Type 7.3 and SL-X 43cm.
After every gybe, it was bobbing. Waiting for a gust and then a couple of pumps to get planing. Hopefully helped by a wave. Once planing I could usually plane the whole length of the beach. Very long runs.
It was tiring sailing, the chop/waves and also a lot of pumping to get planing.
Temperature was quite good but unfortunately no sun at all. Wind was not as strong as predicted, but still a nice session. [Read...]
