Forecast 25 to 35 knots southwest, about 13 degrees and probably dry, perfect for the Blokkendam. Not early on the dam. It was quite busy. Saled the Banzai 4.7, first on the Goya One 95, later on the Fanatic Grip 93. Sailed on until the wind began to die down and it became dusk. Amazing afternoon, not really cold yet, good wind and especially last hour really good waves. Very happy with the Grip. [Read...]

Wind at the Grevelingendam just not quite west, just a tad too much south. On the Brouwersdam, just a little north. So not really great anywhere. The Brouwersdam with a little north is always better than the Grevelingendam with a little south. Used the Banzai 5.3, first on the F-Cross 113, later with the Goya One 95. It was lovely, wind fairly constant, lots of sun: delicious. Next time with this direction: start at Brouwersdam itself, and sail from there towards the lighthouse. [Read...]

Forecast was: west wind 25 to 40 knots: Grevelingendam. Unfortunately, the wind turned out to be just a bit southerly, so there was hardly any wind near the shore. When I arrived, the wind wasn't there yet. There were also a lot of showers, so I doubted I should turn around and go home. Did a lot of equipment trimming. Sail with the Banzai 4.7 on both the Goya One 95 and the Fanatic Grip 93. Tried a lot of different fins. Luckily the rain wasn't too bad, wind wasn't super gusty. Unfortunately, the direction was just not right, so we really not possible to plane near the shore. It was nice on the water. [Read...]

Strong wind predicted in the coming days. Yesterday storm, too much for surfing: 45 - 75 kts. Good wind and SW forecast today. Sailed the Banzai 5.3 on the Goya One 95 with MFC 22.5/10cm fins. Unintentionally caused a problem for a kiter, bummer. Wind direction was only good for a short time, usually bit too south. Luckily almost no rain. Wind was wonderfully constant. [Read...]
