Perfect ending of the trip 50knots stays special!!!!

Could have been the perfect day but the movement from yesterdays swell was still in the water which didn't make it any easier. But we did get a full tramontana today gust between 45 and 50knots that made it possible to get some sick slingshots. After a few setting changes i was fully in control and found a nice curve that was perfect for getting topspeed after a few 49peaks got the full gust in lockdown acceleration was sick. Tried a few miles but couldn't find the power to keep it all the way. Respect to all the guys with PB's had a lot of fun this weekend. Never had such a clean van because of the SDS hahaha

Blue Steel!!!

Great last day of an amazing trip to La Franqui. Very different conditions, from \"lowwind\" ,almost nuclear, choppy, swell and flat water. 

New PR for me. Needed just 1 more run over 80kmh for an average of 80, unfortunately i didn't get it. Better luck next time, but stoked with the max display of 86,94kmh! Totally in control slingshotting yourself at the sea...

Learned a lot this trip and had a lot of fun.

Finally perfect conditions at la Franqui. I really sailed like a pussy today totally in the safe mode after my unlucky crash from saturday. I didn't want to crash and was not confident today to accelerate downwind in gusts of 50 knots of wind. My crosswind speed was good if i compare my NM and 500 with the other guys, but i was not confident enough to bear of like Hans and also Stefan today. Big respect to Hans to have the balls to break 50 knots 2 seconds and end the run with a crash.

Very emotional moments with Stefan, Sander, Willem and Michel who were crying of hapiness on the beach after they broke the 2 seconds topspeed. i noticed some tears in Hans his eyes after he broke the 50 knots. What a sport;-)

Great weekend and thanks for the fun we had together.
