(machine translated in 2023) Winds were forecast later in the day. It was also raining all the way through. When we arrived at 11:30 it was still quiet on the water. First a cup of tea and by 13:00 go rigging. Wind ended up being much stronger than expected, but I did a great job.


Present: Arno (Mr. Q), Jurjen

13:00 0.5 hour Wind: SW 16/20 kts
Board: JP Freestyle Wave 84 II - Mistral Freestyle 25cm
Sail: North Disco 5.9 - North Viper 75 430cm - North X-Composite M
  (machine translated in 2023) After 1 rake in the bay with the Skate 111 immediately went to the side for the Freestyle Wave. That went a lot better. Although the wind increased quickly and the 5.9 was soon too big.
13:45 2 hour Wind: SW 18/30 kts
Board: JP Freestyle Wave 84 II - JP Freestyle Wave 25cm
Sail: North Dr.X 4.7 - North XC60 400cm - North Progression Comp A+
  After doubting between 5.3 and 4.7, I chose the 4.7: good choose. I was soon on the beach trimming the DrX to max. Set worked very well, I'm starting to get more and more addicted to the FreestyleWave. What a great board. Jumps super, jybes delicious and all that with mega control and early planing. Only drawback: Does not turn as easy as my old Naish 8'5". After a while, the 4.7 was actually too big, but still sailed through because I had to be home on time and didn't have time to rig.
