[review] Tribal Powermax
I was looking for a fast freeride fin. In 2007 I had Tectonics Falcon F1 fins (which are freeride fins). Chris Lockwood recommended these fins and I really like them. Last year I did a session with my Sonntag SL-S (an old competition fin) and I questioned m...

[review] Sonntag GPS_6
How much speed do you need! The GPS_6 takes medium wind efficiency to a higher level. It is not a lightwind fin, performance is below average in lightwind. I didn't test it in extreme high wind, however I believe the fin is best for 20~35kn of wind. Why is ...

(Sea)Weed and windsurfing future
Windsurfers do not like weed, seagrass, seaweed, algue, etc. The reason is simple, if you catch weed on your windsurf fin it feels like your pulling a boat and everything becomes unstable. The only way to get rid of weed is by pulling it off your fin (which...

Carbon content versus bendcurve
I have now multiple sails (different brands). In the past I always chose the recommended mast, but since 2017 I tried random masts (which we already had). Read the experiences of this year: I have a loft sails blade with RDM mast, perfect sail well made. An...

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
This is not my first GPS for windsurfing. A long time ago I started with the Garmin Foretrex (also a watch). After losing a foretrex twice I got a amarillo triptracker (navi GT 11), for this GPS a aquapack was required around my arm. After this I bought two...

Amsterdam-Pampus-Almere
Today I used my 380 Phantom raceboard and a 8.3 cambered sail. The windsurf conditions turned out to be good at IJburg. There was an increasingly Northeasterly wind. I was not alone, there were at least 20 others on the water (and some onshore). Waves where...

Some thoughts when picking a new sail for blasting around
I like to have a sail with a large windrange. I like a sail which is lightweight. I like something dureable. I like some speed, but more important not just a 3 second acceleration, speed which I can keep up all day (light sail on the hands). I like a cammed...

Severne Overdrive R7 (2016)
The new Overdrive looks awesome, lighter, exact replica of proto, moderately wide mastsleef. It sounds like a big progression (previous years the new improvements didn't sound that great). All credits go to Severne UK

This year we (me, girlfriend and my brother) went to Aruba for a short vacation, during the 'winter' season in the Netherlands. It was the first time for us to windsurf in South-America. Me and my brother like to windsurf together from 10 knots in good weat...
