New PR Strand Horst: Almost 71-80kg leader

03-09-2009 - What a day, I went to Strand Horst just to have a safe and relaxed speedsession. Never thought about going after these extreme speeds, my first 75kmh run and 79kmh peak amazed me. My second 75kmh run and 79kmh peak was soooo explosive acceleration (I sheeted out...). I even managed another 75kmh run, beside LOTS of 73.x kmh runs. I really need to get used to this kind of speedsurfing, it is just overall 3kmh faster than before :)

Gear used:
Falcon Speed
RS:Slalom MKIII 5.5
Sonntag Fins
GPS_2 26cm

After some time on water I decided to go to the beach and eat some food. I thought lets do a double test. Soo I changed my fin too Select Caspar Speed (pro-model) 25cm. I would say this fin is quite damaged, but still my fastest select ever. The first 2 runs were fastest both 74.x kmh runs, peakspeed was something about 77kmh.

Next time I will try a Sonntag GPS_2 25cm, with some upgrades. With the experience of yesterday this could be the fin fast enough for 1th place.
