Short trip to BZH

Went for a short trip to Brittany, aka Breizh (BZH) One of my favorite places. No matter what kind of a conditions, there will always be some great days.
Took the bus and drove early in the morning through a dark and rainy Holland/Belgium.
As soon as I arrived in France the sun started to shine and the temperatures rised. Finally!!

Unfortunately there was no swell in the beginning, but hey.. nothing wrong with turquoise clear water between high cliffs. Just easy relaxing windsurfing with some local friends.

Ronja felt at home in the rabbit dunes... Holiday pur sang for all of us

Local sea food? anyway you don't want to duckdive, and find this item on your head going up again..

I'm not such a flatwater blaster, ehhh normally with these winds (without swell) I couln't/wouldn't even windsurf... but these Hot fire power editions got so much pull that they got me going.

A nice "belly" in this wavesail

Unexpected help..

Paul came straight from the PWA in Podersdorf/Austria to visit me (a loooong drive). What a luck, I was just packing the bus, so he could give me a help... hahahhaha.
He found my spidercrab hunting tools..
After sharing some pizza's he found the energy to drive his last miles home.

Thanx Paul for all your help. See you soon

Liberation day

Liberation Day is celebrated each year on May 5th in the Netherlands to mark the end of the German occupation during World War II.
The nation was liberated largely by Canadian troops, with the assistance of the British and American Armies
Our 3 colors. Orange is our royal family color.

Luckely we had great weather, so the parties outside went on all night...
(At the end of my street was a music (eat/drink) festival with more than 130.000 visitors...)

But in the garden it was also ok.. Live music in the background and no stress to get your snack and drinks

Sort of turkish homemade lamb burger. Super tasty!

Nemo colorway

Above the clownfish. Below Nemo sushi ;-)

Last weekend I discussed with Winfried some colorways for my new board. Fading neon yellow into neon green, or as another option something with white and bright orange... as the SOS rocket 88. A Nemo fish...

Well yesterday I came across a picture of Glenn with a new SOS board in his hands...
and in what color??........

sport QUATTRO's

Yesterday I went with the bus to my friend Erik for a engine check. He serviced en spiced the engine up for next weeks travel. If someone got knowhow on cars, engines etc it's him. You could almost say that he's a combo of McGyver and a state of the art Formula One team.

When I arrived he was working on 2 ultra rare original Audi sport quattro's from 1985.
The Audi sport quattro was a car developed for homologation for Group B rallying in 1984, and sold as a production car in limited numbers.

A total of 224 cars of this "short version" quattro were built. So do your best and try to spot one..

To reduce the weight of the car, and to strenghten it up they allready used carbon/kevlar for the body shell and parts.

here a movie clip that goes back in time..

Hmm.. would this engine also fit into the bus?
