windsurf crossing Monnickendam (Gouwzee) - Schellinghout
This is the first "successful" 20km+ crossing. There was today a (West-)Northwesterly 6~14 kn breeze and Sun. It was a good challenge, I would  rate it fun and not difficult in these conditions. The seaweeds are never fun, I estimated there would be no seaw...

[review] Suunto Ambit Peak 3 for windsurfing

Yesterday I tested two Hellcat sails in the tropical winds. First no-cam racesails I tryed since forever... The wind was at the low end  (below) 15kn. I learned no-cam sails can be good for a bit of racing. The main differences no-cam versus cam: -no-cam ne...

My windsurfing kit 2015
My windsurfing kit has changed many times over the last decade. There was a period when I imported my equipment myself (from Germany and Australia). Later I got some sponsorships and could get the newest equipment locally (which was less hassle). It did cos...

Sun, wind and a good winddirection for Gouwzee. Off I went, one little problem, my winterwetsuit is in the storage box of my brother, where I don't have the keys etc. But it is sunny and windy, shouldn't be too cold right? About 10 degrees Celsius, and 10 m...
