Amstelmeer fishnet update!

Not so long ago I crashed into a fishnet at the Amstelmeer, you can read more about this HERE. Yesterday I had a very positive call with the fisherman. Conclusion was we have to work together and make it good for both windsurfing and fishing in wintertime. In summertime there were never problems.

From now on I (and Jeroen Labots) get an email about the fishing locations. I don't guaranty but will do my best putting this information online soo every windsurfer can check if the Amstelmeer is clear (or which places are safe). When checking the last 7 days blogposts on should give you enough information about the Amstelmeer and safety/fishingnets

The fishingnets are now removed, soo it is safe to windsurf on all regular Amstelmeer places.
