VIDEO Speedsession in Büsum

On Friday I had a nice session in Büsum, no records but good training and good fun! Maxed out at 42,7 kts/ 79 kmh with a really broad angle. I also used my new GoPro Hero 6 for the first time for this video, and what I particularly like is the improved electronic image stabilization and the GPS-overlay. I will write a little review about how well the new GoPro works for windsurfing in the next days

In this article I’d like to give some tips and tricks on how to set your GoPro for windsurfing so you’ll get the best footage out of it.

On top of that the water level is very high at the moment because we’ve had a lot of rain in the last weeks. Usually it’s around 110cm, on Saturday we had 124cm. This makes the water more choppy.

Personal best at Büsum – fantastic day!

Speedsurfing can be rather frustrating… When you manage to find the perfect spot on a really windy day and all the elements align (tide/windstrength/windangle/temperatures/no heavy rain/…) you can gebüsum speed juni2t some really nice numbers on the GPS-unit. But on the other hand; after such a day you may sometimes have to wait several months if not years to catch perfect conditions again in which you may score higher speeds…
