Nice, weak, gone..

Maasvlakte 2, Hoek van Holland
Windsurfing: Waves
17:30 pm - 20:00 pm Wednesday. July 10. 2013
my rating 3 star rating
Wind Direction: N Wind Strength: powered   using 5.1 - 5.5m sail. Swell Direction: W Swell Size: waist Tide: Mid - Falling.

Decided to take P2 instead of the most outer parking 1 because we saw nice waist to shoulder high lines with cross-off cconditions compared with P1 wich had bigger messy waves with a strong current.

Unfortunately the tide killed the waves rappidly and the good wind stayed for 30-45 minutes then it became really unsteady and got weaker and weaker as cloudes came closer in the clear blue sky...

Hoping under the clouds the wind would pick up again we stayed, but the wind stayed away...

Again I was focussed on trying the forward so in the second run I wanted to go for it! .... preparing by holding my hand wide on the boom...sailing wide to the wind....thinking about all the things-to-do I rememered from the instruction movies......hitting a wave...and my whole body reacted by NOT making this "in-the-air-catapult" ..... So it was a No-Go :(

It didn't even come closeand it looks more like a donkey-kick/ table-top attempt HA HA

the next runs I was figuring out why this happend and what my steps could be to "turn this switch in my head/body" then the wind became to weak...

Next time I will try fist a sail only for 3 or 4 times to get the feeling and ten more low-speed (as advised by other surfers) attempts
