The EFPT has released their calender for the 2008 season. And it looks like their gonna hit Belgium again :)
This time it will be from 6 until 9 august @ Twins - Bredene.
I hope sincerely that the wind this year won't let us down like this year (2007). Because naturally it's more fun for a judge to get some actual judging :)
Also, from this year on, our Freestyle hero Steven Van Broeckhoven will be competing!! I'm pretty sure that he will do an excellent job, so watch out Paskowksi :D

Some guy's are real acrobatics on the water. For example, non-planning freestyle addict Oscar "Ceasar". I've you thought you could flip you're sail perfectly, think again !
Watch this video and be amazed by the flip overs of this little chap in Bonaire. My favorite move comes around 2:18. It's just another proof that freestyling is really the best sport in the world, no matter what the conditions are !
ACCEPT NO LIMITS

Last sunday (2/12) was a super day for windsurfing!! It was a long time ago since i was overpowered by a 4.5 and i will cherish every moment of it. Although it wasn't very warm (about 10° degrees), the weather was doable apart from some rain (that really felt like hail).
Because it was so long ago for me to actually windsurf (and not windskate) i never stopped or got some rest which resulted in unfortunately no photo's or movies.. The good part of this though is that it's probably the first time in such extreme conditions i have not a single sort of damage, neither on my material or myself.. what a glories day ! :)
Now something else, my good deed for this year :) I've bought for me and my girlfriend an Charity String for SurfAid.
