The weather

You can always talk about the weather, but one thing for sure ITS BAD. This year is definitly not a windsurfing year, at least I see and experience a lot less action than previous years. I bet after the summer we will get lots of wind, I hope it. A few days ago I had Hans Kleingeld on the phone and we agreed to do some windeffects articles on, subjects that never really have been done. This will be nice and informative, because there are lots of effects at local spots. Big and small effects making a lot of difference.

I think there will be enough information to make at least 2-3 articles. Practical information which can be used to gain more speed in different conditions.

PS putting all straps on the new starboards and stickers in the 7.0 was a lot of work. I will try to do a session tomorrow, would be great to have some time to tune everything. Lets hope at least 18kn gusts. All my new boardshapes and saildesign look soo nice, this will definitly be an improvement.

Thanks again for all the positive feedback on the Starboard/Severne deal!!

The new website is still at the same level, nice weather + computer is not soo nice... I hope to get it done when we get some more dark days. I think at least 10 hours of work to do, before publishing.

  1. We can never predict about whether any time. It's keep on changing and one should prepare for unexpected. Wise you will have a nice season, so enjoy your surfing...

  2. this year in croatia, worst then ever, so little wind that we can't believe it. winter, spring, no boras, no south wind. past years was much, much better
