Headache after 3 bad sessions in a row

What a mess the last 2 days, predicitions looked like a perfect day to break records. Friday I decided to do a quick session to stetch some muscles before the big Saturday. But I think I wrote this before on speedsurfingblog:


I hope never to forget this, and if I do, please remind me ;). Friday the wind was above predictions for sure, maybe we got 30kn average for some minutes. Saturday I had mostly some 20kn gusts late on the Amstelmeer.

In short the 3 sessions:
  1. Friday Amstelmeer: I should have gone 100% and maybe break my Amstelmeer PR. It was a shame I was alone otherwise it could have been a good session for the local amstelmeer speeders.
  2. Saturday Brace: Southerly wind... Next time... I still don't know how to handle these days?!?
  3. Saturday Amstelmeer: It was good to clean my wetsuit and 5.5... nothing more to say
Now again the wind is dissapointing on Sunday, this together with a good headache and knowing tommorow is going to be very busy @ work, DAMN!!! We deserve at least 1 good "Brace" session, it should be there according to my own stats.

Today I hope to finish the Angulo Magnum 60 testreport, I don't think this board will be my lightwind speedboard for 2010. Main reason is not the speedpotential, but because the board is to close to my fanatic falcon 79.

  1. Yeah, this wind direction is very dissapointing.
    Every windsite talks about 20/25 knots, I didn't see that....

  2. Or It is just to difficult to get a descent forecast...the wind is not a disappointment but the forecast.
