(machine translated in 2023) Prediction was minless than yesterday, but West. So off to the Grvelingendam. Unfortunately, the wind quickly subsided but eventually sailed with 8.5.


12:15 0.5 hour Wind: W 14/20 kts
Board: Fanatic Skate 111 - MFC Style Master L
Sail: North Disco 5.9 - North Viper 75 430cm - North X-Composite M
  (machine translated in 2023) Wind seemed stronger than eventually on the water. Couldn't walk a height and barely plan.
13:00 0.5 hour Wind: W 12/15 kts
Board: Fanatic Skate 111 - MFC Goya Freemove 31cm
Sail: North Natural 6.6 - North XC65 460cm - North X-Composite L
  (machine translated in 2023) Well that didn't help anything, first planing back, then bobbing back. Unfortunately the 7.5 is not included so just the same for the 8.5. The 200-250 boom also seemed weird. Maybe it's the width of the boom or the trapeze strings, but it didn't feel quite super.
13:45 2 hour Wind: W 12/15 kts
Board: HTS Super Fast M - Select Lightning Evo 45cm
Sail: Arrows Dragster 8.5 - Arrows Ultimate Race 490cm - Arrows Ultimate Race 190-240
  (machine translated in 2023) Finally enough pressure in my sail. Downhaul on or just over max. Sail was good to keep and the Super Fast ran great again. I didn't hear the 45cm Evo whistle. The Evo are very nice, but look a lot like the North Shore Ultra Slalom: You can't walk height with it at little speed! If you make speed first, you'll be fine.
