Speedsurfing Statistics, big part of the thrill!!!!

I am not going to lie about this. Statistics are most important for speedsurfing, actually I cannot really tell the difference in speed between 2 sessions. Only thing I can tell is when I go faster, equal or slower speed than the actual wind: Conclusion for a good session I need good statistics. In 2009 I did not achieve my goals, but still when searching in the database I can find nice achievements. It seems each year my speed- progression gets smaller BUT more achievements. I checked most achievements, please let me know if the list is not accurate.

All stats are generated with www.gps-speedsurfing.com database, using the goldmember features.

One thing I concluded is my achievements are very local, I would like to explain this. The focus on local spots was my 2009 strategy, this to make myself more worth in the market. I almost believed it didn't pay off, but in the end it did :). I believe windsurfing in some flat dark corners isn't best value for money concerning sponsorship. For potential wind/ speedsurfers I tried to surf as visible as possible. One of my best (or my best achievement ever...) isn't listed, the unofficial FSM Amstelmeer 2009 I would have won :) This (unofficial) achievement still makes me very happy.

For 2010 I hope to get even faster, and get more achievements on my name.
