More speed news
Some dutch guys can't seem to get enough of South-France speedspot La Franqui. Again around 10 speedsurfers will drive 1400km for a few windy speedsessions this weekend.
Most will know Chris Lockwood has the first spot again in the gps-speedsurfing.com ranking. Chris doesn't use the CA speedboards anymore, the "nude streaker 46" is his new board for records. With google+facebook I found these pictures.
Wad1team is second again in GPSteamchallenge ;), last session we scored on distance 221km average was a long session. My GPS said I just did 202km and it took ages, I even saw the sun go down during my long distance session. Odometer, grrrrrrr, I did 30km to much, and the GPS made me think I did not enough for 1th place. Still windsurfing in the dark is something special, plus the wind+water gets more constant!!
There are still fast speedsurfers that do believe in polishing boards and fins. I have never had positive experience with polished parts.
Will we ever see any speedrecords actually sailed in the Netherlands??? West-Kirby, La Franqui, Vollerwiek, Sandy Point are now places too be for top-10
