EFPT: Toro Andaluz

Today started the first EFPT event @ Toro, Andaluz. 35 riders are ready to compete and to give the audience a super blasting awesome freestyle show! Can't wait to see that footage!!

My interests and especial good luck wishes goes to the Belgium delegation. With Steven Van Broeckhoven as most promising talent here in Belgium, i'm literally on the tip of my chair of excitement to see if his practice in Bonaire is going to pay of.
His first heat is with our lovely Rolien Caers, André Paskowski and Stefan Kruse or Rafael Cervero although depending on which system their gonna use, the real fight with André is going to be postponed to the next heat.

Also i'm curious about our youth talent: Dieter Van der Eycken, Roeland De Rycker, Kenny Janssens and Jelle Caers. I'm sooooo excited :)

Take off @ 12u so it should start by now.. i wish i was there..

I'll keep you posted.

Tandem Surfing

On a dark day without wind i was thinking about how to get my girlfriend windsurfing. After a while i got it, why not take here with me on a tandem trip? That way, at least the fear of being alone (?) on the water should go away. Now, i've still a pretty big boat of a board from the late 80's (i guess), aka the windglider. While surfing the internet searching for example's on how to turn that big floaty board in to a decent tandem i came across of the next video.

I was pretty amazed on how they do their tandem surfing...

Waterproof GoPro camera

:: update, the movie is also viewable on ::

The first of March 2008 was a great day for windsurfing. As mentioned in a previous post we were testing my newly bought waterproof GoPro camera. With we, i refer to Jelle Caers, who's a much, much more better freestyler then i am.

Although the web quality really sucks, i'm pretty happy with the results. It gives new perspectives for the upcoming videos :)

Pritchard brothers is dead, long live

Kevin and Matt Pritchard have decided to join forces and start a fused site about their live passion, windsurfing. You can still read the blog of Kevin but now you can learn the techniques for becoming a master windsurfer from his brother, with as first technique: Pre-Windsurf conditions.

Although it's general a bit to dark for me, it's again a great stylish design like we're used from Kevin.

Be sure to give them a visit!

From heavy to light

:: update, a few more photo's can be found @ ::

Saturday, the first of march was a splendid windsurfing day for Belgium and Holland! The wind was massively blowing and i don't know what the exact temperature was, but i guess it would be around 11°C which isn't cold at all for Belgium standards.

Normally Gino and i would go out for some kick ass wave sailing but when we got at Ouddorp in the morning the sea was closed due security risks so we had to surf on the other side of the dam. Time for some freestyle action!

I was pretty excited as it has been a long time for me to surf on my smallest stuff, 80l tiga wave board and a 4.5 search (sorry Aerotech), although everybody else was surfing with a 4 max. Around noon the wind dropped drastically, even to the point that i couldn't surf at all. That's the moment i took my camera out. Then around 15u the wind picked up a notch, and with my 5.8 search and twintip 105 i was back in business!

Enjoy the pictures!

This is Jelle who did the first Go-Pro camera test, the video will be online as soon it has been edited :)
