(machine translated in 2023) Afternoon Slalom Training
Tuesday seemed to be the only day with wind this week, so Tuesday took off.
Wind would only come from about 3 o'clock and then increase to about 5 to 6 hours. So first I did some things at home and only by 5 o'clock on the water. The wind was already blowing there. Jacco was also there and he came off the water with 7.0, yes on the small side but I wanted to test it, just bought new. So I just rigged my 7.0.

On steps and flying away. Behind the surf center was clearly a very large wind hole, but even beyond that the wind was a lot less. After 2x trying to sail longer rakes that no longer tried. So I made short rakes from the harbour to the front sandbar and trained a lot on my Gybes, and they are going really well these days. I barely fall and just plane through my gybes 90% of the time. Wind increased more and more and the 36cm started to feel big. Just went to the side for another fin and a sip of drink.

The S07 33cm was extremely good again, a really good fin. Rest and speed felt good, gyben went well, although I did have 2x that when deploying the gybe with left for not enough carve-de, spinout and in the water. Wind only increased, went to the side for the GPS and sailed a few more rakes: 58.2 km / h.

Hans Kreisel also came to sail. Hans probably broke the speed surfing world record last Friday: 90.44 km/h on average over 10 seconds!! Hans walked around with a big grin. It was also incredible to see how fast that guy is on the water. I'm pretty fast...

Nice day of training, made a lot of good gybes. It strikes me how easily I go through my gybes these days. I hardly fall silent anymore. And even just by planing doesn't feel really good anymore. Nowadays it has to be at top speed and after the gybe or as soon as possible at speed, and I trained a lot on that today. Have had the GoPro with me, so will do some editing soon. My muscles are complaining a lot now. In the past 5 days 3x surfed and 1x Power Yoga, fortunately now 3 quiet days for the weekend.


17:15 0.75 hour Wind: N
Board: Starboard iSonic 101 - C3 Venom v2 36cm
Sail: North Warp F2009 7.0 - North Platinum(09) 460cm - Neil Pryde X9 180-230
  (machine translated in 2023) Ran nicely, only the 36cm venom quickly felt big. Especially when the wind got stronger and stronger. Far good, gyben good, no spinouts and felt familiar. Had the boom a little too high in the beginning so I had a little too weining pressure on my front foot, boom just above M and then it was all right again.
18:00 1.5 hour Wind: N
Board: Starboard iSonic 101 - Select S07 33cm
Sail: North Warp F2009 7.0 - North Platinum(09) 460cm - Neil Pryde X9 180-230
  (machine translated in 2023) Set ran well, 2x spinout when deploying a gybe with left front. But that was due to the lack of carving at this kind of speed. Set flew over the water.
