(machine translated in 2023) Disappointing wind,
Unfortunately, I had to miss the storm of the day for it. But good winds were also forecast for Sunday: 22 to 30 knots.
We could borrow the Camper from Mijke's parents, so we could enjoy a day in Zeeland, eat inside and change clothes.

Upon arrival, Martijn and Jurjen were already sailing. Martijn came to the side with difficulty in plane with a 5.7. But I weigh almost 20 kilos less so it should really work with 5.3.

Freewave 104
Nice day to test my Freewave 104 for the first time. The Ice 5.3 on it and Mistral Freestyle 23cm underneath. Once on the water, the wind was quite disappointing, could often plan, but not spacious. Yes on the back it was sometimes very tasty. However, the wind quickly subsided and only stopped and a large set was caught.

iSonic 115 with 8.3
I doubted for a moment whether I would go for 6.7/7.3. But since 5.9 was far too small, this would also be on the edge, so only the 8.3 rigged. Because I didn't have my GT85 with me, I grabbed the iSonic, that should be possible too. With the largest fin I had with me, Hurricane SRA 44cm underneath. Set of lipe good, speed felt good too. All the gyben with the iSonic and the 8.3 on it didn't go great. I kept falling silent halfway through the gybe. I really need to practice on that. But otherwise really delicious dangers. Until the wind really fell away completely and I could come back half bobbing and sometimes just planing. So I stopped.

All in all, the wind was disappointing, but nice surfing.
