Number 4 in the worldranking 2010!

Now everything is checked by timekeepers I can put (at last) this picture on my blog. I am at this moment number 4 in the 2010 gps-speedsurfing world!!! Again many thanks for all positive reactions, all the links to definitly going to help promote speedsurfing ever further!!! I just read the Dailybits blogpost  all these links together with, facebook, linkedin, and many others are worth a lot.

Also great to see teammate Jurjen van der Noord at the 5th spot with Starboard iSonic Speed Special W49+ Severne Reflex 6.2, also the bigger sizes have good speed :)

The tuning I used:
Starboard iSonic speed special W44, footstraps in the back, mastfoot at recommended
Severne Reflex 5.6 + Severne Enigma 400, downhaul till looseleech was at the vertical black-white stripe. 2 Reflex battens on good tension (just without extreme wrinkles around the tensioners), back battenparts totally loose. Topbattens loose, bottom 2 battens mediocre tension (I always do this on any sail/mast the first time to prevent breakage on first session). Outhaul a bit negative.

  1. Congratz! Great achievement. The sponsor deal was a good investment for Starboard and Severne :-).

    And with the autumn and winter coming up, there is still a lot of time to improve your record for 2010.

  2. Fantastic! Great job!! :)
