When I woke up my muscles were hurting I was tired of the powersession of yesterday..the wind was NW and should go to West or WSW in the afternoon.. Very in doubt if I would go to the Zandmotor or Ouddorp.
Then I saw right before I left that the direction was still 277 degrees and I decide Ouddorp. Steps called (right after I posted it would be Ouddorp) he was standing there and it looked beuatifull!
On arrival I decided 4,7 and small board as I saw a 14-17 m/s on the measurements, it looked less..
On the water this was a bit under power now and then, but mostly OK
Waves where beautifull, on my first run I met a nice steap 2 meter shorebreak and got my first air...flying high! The I came on the second bank, waves where bigger her, up to 3 meter, and more current...in the gusts I was well powered and had great flying jumps there too.
On the way back the shorebreak was also nice to ride, not as long line as the Zandmotor (of course) but still 2 or 3 turns possible if lucky.. Those 2 meter waves where great! And als have ride 3 or 4 almost logo high waves, sometimes those "monstersets" cam in..
In the middle of the session I checked my boom as I heard a croaking sound and my boomhead was almost breaking..made a safetyline (see red line on the picture) So the last hour I didn't jump anymore and only did the waveriding in the shorebreak :)
(next time West= Ouddorp!! I forgot it could be like this...would be nice if Jacco and Pont would come there too one day)
