(machine translated in 2023) Changing day
Wind was predicted, quite a lot of wind, and the wind was expected to decrease around 5 a.m. After arriving doubted, it didn't look so hard, but many surfers were working with <6.0.

I went for my Daytona 6.6, on the S-Type to speed behind the dam.
Once on the water I found the wind disappointing, I could sail wonderfully, but no speed weather. First rakes did not go faster than 53 km / h at all. Only later did the wind increase and the speed slowly increase. Snelehid stuck at 59.9 km/h. I found it very busy for speed and decided to grab a play set anyway.

I wanted to rig 5.9 or 5.3, still had doubts, is there a surfer who did not come off the water and he advised 4.5. That didn't seem like much to me, but I still caught the 5.3 trimmed at max. When I got to the water's edge I felt a strong breeze. First part in the bay it was still nice, but further out it felt hard. Sailed back and forth a few times but then went to Max trim. But that really didn't help anymore, wind started to increase rapidly.

On the side quickly 4.2 rigged, JP still under it because wind could also be gone like that. This was already a lot better, more control, nice sailing, gyben. Will there be rain. Wasn't anyone on the water anyway so they sailed through. Wind became even stronger, but it was really time to get the AHD Wave out of the cart.

With the AHD Wave and Voodoo 4.2 hoet was good, but when I just sailed away it already felt smaller, was the wind less? Yes, after a few long rakes I could hardly plan anymore, I could barely make it to the shallows. And then the whole piece had to float back. And that's a long way off Herkingen. End of day. Nice, but weird day.


14:15 1.5 hour Wind: W/SW 18/30 kts
Board: Starboard S-Type 104 - Lessacher B+F Speed 35cm
Sail: North Daytona 6.6 - North Viper 75 460cm - Neil Pryde X9 180-230
16:15 0.5 hour Wind: W/SW 24/32 kts
Board: JP Freestyle Wave 84 II - Mistral Freestyle 23cm
Sail: North Ice 5.3 - North Gold 430cm - Neil Pryde X6 145-195
  (machine translated in 2023) From the beach the set ran very well / nicely. But soon it became big, and even so big that I no longer had control over the sail. Board still controlled, but fun is different.
17:15 0.75 hour Wind: W/SW 28/36 kts
Board: JP Freestyle Wave 84 II - Select Wave Warrior 22cm
Sail: North Voodoo 4.2 - North Gold(a) 400cm - Neil Pryde X6 145-195
  (machine translated in 2023) Sail was very big and board was going to bounce a lot, couldn't make it run nicely anymore. Time for the real little work.
18:15 0.75 hour Wind: W/SW 12/32 kts
Board: AHD Pro Wave 255 II - Select Wave Warrior 22cm
Sail: North Voodoo 4.2 - North Gold(a) 400cm - Neil Pryde X6 145-195
  (machine translated in 2023) When the wind was there, the set was super, what a control. However, without wind it is a disaster to float, also have to walk.
