YEAH you can have fun in 13kn gusts with GPS
|Thanks Marjon van Leeuwen and Raymond Wortel for this beautiful shot!|
Saturday 2 April 2011, I went windsurfing with my brother Wouter. He could decide where to go and we went to the Gouwzee, because Wouter wanted to test his 96cm wide board for light wind. The Gouwzee is a perfect spot for having a good time, many good windsurfers, nice water and a little bit less wind compared to the Amstelmeer.
I rigged my brand new Severne ReflexII 7.8, and used both the iSonic 107 and 127 with Sonntag SL-P fins. On the picture I ride Erik Schram his iSonic 127, what a great ride, what a joy! Another one on my list “what to buy” when I win the lotery ;). Thanks Erik for letting me try 85cm wide iSonic 127!
Yeah light wind is fun too, waiting for a gust and go with the flow. And during/between windsurfing in the sun getting a tan, or talking with friends. Only 14 minutes above 20kn board speed, GPS topspeed below 30kn, it all doesn’t matter when you’re having fun together with other friendly windsurfers. Still fun and challenging to see if you can double the windspeed 🙂
