Wood recycling..

Found in a trash container some old, used wood that they used for building houses..., scaffolding wood.
The planks got their marks from years of abuse, but hey.. that also ads loads of charm.
So I brought them home and made some garden furniture out of them.

After a lot of sanding, the surface of the wood became smooth as silk. Ready for a second life in the garden

A windy weekend

Saterday. After a week full of wind, the wind kept on blowing in the weekend. For some easy going we went to the IJsselmeer/Stavoren. A super relaxed spot where it's easy parking/rigging/leave your gear anywhere around/where you can leave the dog playing on the shore while you play on the water...
The place where we always went as kid, and learned jumping

Erik does the hop

Easy going and no crowds.

Doggy is hiding her eyes

Sunday. another full boost. started with 5.3
In the afternoon I switched to 4.2

Afternoon set. Dutch Orange all the way.
Board:SOS, Sean Ordonez Shapes. Bamboo/carbon Guppy 75

Focus on the stone ;-)

Yup, Doggy's stone....

Wipeout again... bad backloop

Monthly Movie Update p.2

After a month of nervous waiting the second part is finally here. Again, windsurf action and not so much lifestyle, but hey... that doesn't matter.

The clip shows the feeling I get when the wind starts, the nervous feeling and the desire to go to the water immediately.

I scored some good days at Amstelmeer. I used th Hotsails Bolt 4.7 and Patrik Diethelm Freestyle 99.

Enjoy this clip and stay tuned for part 3!!

People have been telling me to come and check out Scheveningen with a nice southwest wind, cause it's one of the closest spots from my house and definitely the closest from my job. But after seeing this picture (taken yesterday by Ridge255, check his complete gallery here), I am glad I had my session at Ouddorp, in nice side off conditions. Sharing the waves with no more than 3 or 4 other guys. I guess that's the advantage of going to a more remote spot.

VW T1 campervan tent..

It's getting crazy..
Now for sale: a VW t1 tent.
One thing I know for sure. The sound of rain on the roof will never be so cozy as on the real metal one.

Oh Oh Portugal..

Late Bretagne post

I stumbled across some pictures on my mobile phone from our trip to Bretagne last Easter (the week before David and Linda went there). They gave me great memories ;-)

Dust during the day and condensation during the night create a nice effect on the hood of the car.

Ana is sailing there somewhere ;-)

I know David takes a lot of food pictures, but sometimes you're just too hungry to take pictures before dinner ;-)

Ella loves the beach....

....and the flowers ;-) Hmmm, that tastes good!

Wakeup call


Locals ;-)

Happy/stoked after the morning surf

In the afternoon very nice windsurf conditions. Offshore winds = countless turns on a wave

Flowers in the wind

In the Evening Erwan made us the best crepes you can imagine. Crepe complet> ham, cheese, egg + salad

crepe apple/caramel

and as an energy boost for the next day: crepe chocolat, banana + vanilla ice
