I was hoping for North and this morning the wind started there! On the way to the spot the wind was turning to Nothwest..

So on arrival the wind was right ON-SHORE...for windsurfing not the nicest wind, but when enough power it can be good. The wind was strong so I decided to rigg the 4,7

This choice was the right one, the wind was gusty, but most of the time (75%) I had enough, sometimes it was pretty heavy..

The waves where messy and sometimes there where pretty clean areas and nice steep ramps. So i have made some jumps...and in the end I made some rides down "the walls" too :)

All together it was a nice day, getting colder now, time for my thicker wetsuit!!

Steps was kiting with his 9m wich broke after a washing wich hapend because of a broken mid-line. Later he pumped his 7m kite and tried his directional board for the first time. He wasn't very happy, too much backfoot presure...I thing he should try with side shore again..

Hope next session is side again.

He Ridge255, Ik was om 15:00 op de parkeerplaats, maar ik vond de wind er On-shore en er braken behoorlijke golven, dus besloten om op de Dam te gaan varen maar bij een andere windrichting kom ik zeker hier een keer varen. Ik begrijp dat jij goed hebt kunnen varen ?

Leuk! Altijd leuk om weer nieuwe mensen te ontoeten...Was idd goed genoeg, side-shore is leuker omdat je dan meer met de golven kan...maar dit is wel mooi om gewoon parallel tussen die grote bakken te cruisen!
