Oesterdam

30 April 2008, what a day! A bit discouraged i went to the Oesterdam. It was the only day they predicted some wind for the whole week and with some i really mean not much, a lazy 12 knots. But man oooh man, was i happy when i arrived @ the spot. Although i don't have a windmeter, i'm pretty sure it was @ least blowing 17 knots.

I got my 5.8 and Twintip combo and got on the water, it was even more then presumed, it had to be 20 knots. So rather overpowered i surfed a couple of racks before Tommeke Peeters arrived. Then we treed to practice some styling :)
Did some major crashes, one even so hard that it ripped up my harness. That was very very though cause i didn't had a spare one and stopping is word i don't know. Surf until you drop was this time what kept me going for real ;)

In my resting period i did take some pictures. For the ones asking themselves, why are there so many of Roeland? Simply because he was the one practicing the hardest!

It is a super spot, although it could get a bit to messy with the shop when the high tide arrives...

more info can be found @ http://www.oesterdam.be/ (it is in dutch though)

You can when it's low tide its very shallow, some places just knee hight, when it's high tide you can still stand @ several sandbanks.
