(machine translated in 2023) Top day with pieces
There was 12 to 16 knots W/SW predicted. That was 16 to 26 SW and that with sun and hot water. Great day.
Unfortunately, a sail piece and a piece of the footpad of my S-Type 104 loose, but my mood was so good because of the super surf weather that even a sail broke could not dampen my mood.

After the last regional cup I wanted to test slalom sailing with Heuptrapeze. This was the first opportunity to do so. Had my North Hip Trapeze on all day. Control was good. Must test with other surfers.

On arrival it was just raining and the wind was gone. After the rain started rigging. I went for my Daytona 7.3 on my iSonic 111. Perfect to test some fins. Martijn was faster and was the first to hit the water on my Daytona 7.8. Martijn had just returned from the water when I walked into it. He went smaller. 7.8 was too big even for him. I briefly doubted whether I should go on the water with 7.3. But I'm not a sissy and wanted to test my Deboichet's.

Daytona 7.3, iSonic 111, Deboichet SL2 38cm
First time sailing with a modern Deboichet. I liked it right away. Control was sometimes on the edge.
I had put adjustable strings on my X9 to be able to sail with hip trapeze, but it was so long that they started to spin slightly. Not really nice, maybe a longer search.
Wind was very strong for the Daytona 7.3. But could still keep the set on the water pretty well. Perfect weather to test the SL4. So quickly start changing fin.

Daytona 7.3, iSonic 111, Deboichet SL4 38cm
After a quick pit stop, quickly back on the water. What a check. Board always seems to go with the wind. So walking on the wind and altitude is very difficult. But what a rest. However, the 7.3 was so tiring that I stopped pretty quickly. Gyben also hardly wanted to succeed. Sail too big? Nice moment to test my RAM F8 6.3.

RAM F8 6.3 piece
After rigging the 7.3 immediately rigged the RAM 6.3. With the downhauling, I didn't get enough loose-leach. So extend a little longer. Try again. And still it didn't work with my crank. Looking at my sail I see a crack at the 3rd camber. Quickly removed the tension. I still don't know if I broke it or if the crack was already there when I bought it. When the tension was off, you didn't see the crack. Then set up another sail: Crossride 6.0.

S-Type 104, Crossride 6.0
I hesitated for a moment to get my Duke 5.9, but it was too flat to jump. And could immediately train more with hip trapeze. So the Crossride 6.0. S-Type under it deliciously sailed. Would have liked to sail this set all day. I really noticed after a while that a piece of the footpad came loose. If I continued with that, he would definitely tear off. Less beautiful. So off to the side for another set.

Freewave 104, Crossride 6.0
After a sandwich and some doubts about another sail I started with the Freewave under the Crossride, if that didn't work I could always change the sail. I knew from last time that I had to take 2 foot straps behind to put enough pressure on a long fin. So after some screw work quickly up the water. Mast foot had to go far in front, but ran nicely, could make some nice jumps.

Although I had some material luck today, this was a really great day. What a beautiful weather. Super enjoyed.

Present: Martijn (Volvosurfer)

11:00 0.5 hour Wind: W/SW
Board: Starboard iSonic 111 - Deboichet SL2 38cm
Sail: North Daytona 7.3 - North Gold 460cm - Neil Pryde X9 180-230
  (machine translated in 2023) First time with my SL2 38cm, first time slalom sailing with hip trapeze.
Set ran well, Daytona 7.3 was trimmed at max of max. Control was not 100% in the chop alone. But all in all, I really liked the set, with hip trapeze. Can sail the set for a long time.
11:30 0.5 hour Wind: W/SW
Board: Starboard iSonic 111 - Deboichet SL4 38cm
Sail: North Daytona 7.3 - North Gold 460cm - Neil Pryde X9 180-230
  (machine translated in 2023) First time with the SL4. What a check. 7.3 was max max trimmed. Was just to keep. But with the SL4 38cm under the iSonic all control. Height walking does not do the fin well, but half wind and certainly ample wind it is really enjoyable.
12:45 1.25 hour Wind: W/SW
Board: Starboard S-Type 104 - C3 D2 36cm
Sail: North Crossride 6.0 - North Viper Wave 430cm - Chinook Pro 1 Alloy 165-227
  (machine translated in 2023) After some searching for the right trim, the set ran wonderfully. Wasn't at max of the Crossride yet, but the C3 D2 worked great. But guess I need a smaller fin for really max conditions. Speed and control were good. The C3 D2 looks bad feel like the SL4 with a bit of SL2. A lot of control, slightly less than the SL4, but runs height.
14:15 1.25 hour Wind: W/SW
Board: Fanatic Freewave 104 - Select Eagle 31cm
Sail: North Crossride 6.0 - North Viper Wave 430cm - Chinook Pro 1 Alloy 165-227
  (machine translated in 2023) Because my S-Type had a separate footpad, I only took my Freewave 104 under my Crossride 6.0.
Double foot straps at the back, front foot straps outwards and the Eagle 31cm underneath. Again, search for the trim. Mast foot had to be almost all the way in the front, but then it went well. Sometimes nice jumping, speed felt good, control unlimited. This is also a nice option to tear around on restless water with friends and still be able to jump.
