Check out the new Vlog to see what I have been up to over the winter…
New year, new sail…
Yes I have bought a Neilpryde RS:Racing Evo 8 sail in 5,6m. Why? Well I want to find out which is fastest sail for speedsurfing. So far I have been On Severne’s Reflex sails for the last two years and I have been quite content with them. So what are my findings on the EVO sail?
In this article I want to talk about how effective the use of lead as additional weight is in Speedwindsurfing. It is no secret that heavier guys usually have the upper hand when it comes to high-wind speedsurfing, so does it make sense to use more lead if you are on the lighter side?
Over the last week I have discovered a new spot for myself, where I can train with the small speedboards and the best part is the spot is less than a one hour drive from where I live. Last Thursday I tried Dorum for the first time with stronger winds. On this spot you have a chance to sail approximately 2 hours before and after low water, but at low water the water level is to low and it is dangerous.
This time of year it’s fairly windy in Northern Europe. I’ve got some nice training sessions in already, but I’m still looking for that one windy day to break record. In the meantime I try to train as much as possible on the water to keep progressing in lighter winds and of course to be ready for the real record-breaking conditions
I love filming my windsurf-sessions. It’s good fun to review your sessions and to share the best moments with your friends or the internet if you like. I personally have used a GoPro Hero 3+ Silver and a GoPro Hero 6 Black and I’m really happy with the cameras for my purposes. 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.
In this article I want to talk a bit about the best stance on the board for speedwindsurfing. You need to try to get the maximum effieciency out of your gear while still keeping control over your gear to go really fast.
