Waarschijnlijk beste wind gemist, maar na 2 topdagen zullen we maar niet klagen ...

Whoop whoop...Windy all week long but I only had a gap today to go foiling. SW winds are always very gusty here at the lake, but today the wind shifted alot as well. My goal was to master the foil gybe in high wind conditions: Tried alot of them, but failed alot of them too. 6.3 was maybe a little too big today (I had the largest sail on the foil today among other weighing +30kgs more). Still work in progress (easier with 9.4 in 12-15 kts) but managed to do 1 out of 3 'dry'. The problem is still to find the strap on the other side resulting in a wobbling unstable flight after the gybe untill my front foot is back in the strap. Used the 800 wing most of the day but when the wind shifted and increased for a while,Â couldn't resist changingÂ to the small wing (550) to do some downwind runs. Had 1 hammer gust while I was still in both straps and sheeted in. Didn't want to disturbe the balance so went balls out all the way... The stopping wasn't according theÂ manual, but hey no broken ribs this time (I was wearing a crashvest this time)Â ;-) Too bad my balls were not big enough to repeat that for the next runs: Always with the back foot out of the strap...resulting in safer runs but lower speeds. Went another 2 times over 50 kmph but the runs were too short. 50+ AVG will be there one day, but it will be at or over the limit for me. Don't feel that there is still alot of improvement possible (speedwise) with my skills/gear.Â

3RDÂ FASTEST ALPHA@500MÂ IN THE WORLD!!!!
The plan was to do an hour and alpha@500m at ZM around noon, and then go to Kwade Plaat for a speed session. Between 12h and 15h the wind turned out a lot lighter then predicted so I thought we also wouldn't have 30-40kn in the afternoon at the Plaat.
Did the hour with the new JP62 (first time) and Z SLM S 33cm. Wind was not strong enough and directing swung way too south from time to time... (upwind only 35km/u). It's a shame because I was really in the zone and didn't make any mistakes. All gybes fully planing, minimum speed during the hour was 9 knots. The new 62 really does gybe like a dream, sooooÂ easy!
After the hour I switchedÂ to the JP54 with Z SLM S- 28cm (first time) and went to the outer dams. As soon as I saw +52Â km/u alpha on my Suunto watch I started pushing as hard as I could. Ended up with 4 times above 53km/u and a massive 55,21km/u as max. The new SLM 28 is an absolute keeper, the fin performedÂ amazing.
Only did 1 fast speedrun. Focussing more on runs and with the asy 25,5 I could have reached 75/76 avg but that was not the goal today ;-)
Congrats Brecht with your PR's, let's go to 70!

Alles is timing.
Iets voor 16.00h het water op, toen Tim eraf ging. Met moeite runs van dik 60 km/h op 100 liter en 7.0 met 2-3 cm minderÂ outhaul.
Na een dik half uurÂ kwamen er plots 10 kn bij. Eerste run eindigde in een tailwalk en uitgehaakt crashke, gelukkig zonder erg. Volgende keer moet ik toch beter bij de les zijn en bij toenemende wind gelijk de outhaul op mijn gebruikelijke stand zetten. Wat een verschil in controle!
Dan de 100 liter ingeruild voor de 80 liter. Daar mijn snelste runs mee gezet. Het kleine vinnetje hield de boel nog onder controle, maar de 7.0 was "way to big". Leon, Frank & co waren toen met 5.6 bezig.
Met zowat mijn 5 laatste runs Pat nog kunnen voorbijsteken. Sterk gevaren makker, met 6.3 en jouw gewicht...chapeau!
