(machine translated in 2023) Again a lot of wind, but unfortunately no sun
After yesterday's super day, the same wind was predicted for today, this time Peter did not go with me and I had to drive myself again.
Wind was forecast all day, so took it easy and headed for zeeland. When I arrived just after 12:00 it was raining. Next to me, a bottle of champagne was pulled open, okay, I know they like me coming too, but you can exaggerate.
I didn't feel like rain, and I really wasn't in a hurry, everything was still hurting on Friday. First eaten, listen to some music, relax. Just chatted with some people and when the weather was dry get on and rig up.
AHD Power Wave 253 with Ice 4.2
Upon arrival, Jurjen told me that his 4.2 was starting to get too small and that I should have set up 4.7. Well Jurjen weighs a lot more than me, but the wind was slightly less predicted. I took the chance to go on the water with the 4.2 and AHD. Never regretted it for a moment. Only after 17:00 it was sometimes a short bobbing, but otherwise it was often full and sometimes even really maximum. Extremely much jumped, left front now goes much better after 2 days of practice. often nice and high, controlled and floating in the air: TASTY!
What a nice board that PowerWave is, gybed like the best, runs like on rails, never shoots out of the corner. Much easier in the waves than the freestyle wave. Until the end of the afternoon I planned almost all my gybejes through, hardly any fallen.
It was stupid to only bring my summer suit today, where I was too hot for my winter suit on Friday, it was actually just too cold for my summer suit. I should have done it the other way around.
Super day, but clearly colder and less high waves.
I got in the car just after 6 o'clock, the first race for the Dutch during the European Championships just started, nice and quiet on the road, could drive on.
