Finally good wind from the right direction: WSW, perfect for the Brouwersdam.
Sailed the Banzai 4.2 on the Wave Slate 96, first as thruster, later tried quad setup.
Not expecting that we would really get 40+ knots.
Impressed with the control of the Slate 96. With 40+ knots still just golfing, board never felt too big.
First time sailing the Wave Slate as a quad, I liked it quite a bit, I'll try it more often.
It was wonderful to have a really good wave session again: enjoyed. [Read...]
Finally good wind for the Blokkendam. Wind forecast: WNW turning to WSW and increasing. On arrival disappointing wind, had just decreased considerably. Sailed the E-Type 6.6 on the F-Cross 113 with Select 35cm. Long runs towards the lighthouse of Ouddorp, jibing and back again. I could easily get upwind so I was further from the dunes and the wind was better.
Less wind than predicted and hoped for, but wonderfully sailed. Lovely sun wind not too gusty.
The F-Cross works very well with the 6.6, so this iSonic 101 is now for sale. [Read...]
