Plastic babies

If we're talking babies... we should not forget these plastic ones!

My two new boards in their early stage

The number of fins are clear

The top of Happiness and stoke!!

I entered the top of stoke and happiness.
Our son is born!

Happy mom!!

His name is Mons

A Dutch tradition: Beschuit met muisjes.
(= Dutch rusk with candy coated aniseeds)
Blue and white if it's a boy, Pink and white if it's a girl

Stoked boy too!

As we live far away from the sea, we have to go for an alternative
An inhouse/on the table mini ocean...

Just like doggy.. on the back

Good news! He loves water

His first surfboard

And his first cars...

I'm on the Mount Everest of Happiness!!

Getting up to strength

Tomorrow we're gonna have some wind again.... The water is still very cold, so I need some energy.

Lemons....(not for now, but hope they'll be tasty in a few months)

Blueberry cake.....

This one definitely gives energy ;-)

And last night we had a dinner with some colleagues from University. We went to a restaurant called Burgerz..... And boy, do they have burgers ;-)

The one I had was called "The Godfather"...... not very easy to eat..... my hand could barely hold it..... but very tasty!!
(thanks Sander for the picture)

Bye bye beloved Fish 82

December offered loads of winds. Unfortunately I payed a price.
During a stormsession I broke the tail of my beloved SOS rocket
fish 82.

This was the board I always brought with me. Nomatter where or
what sort of conditions.. It simply always worked. I knew the board
inside out. It was fast, super loose and turned on a dime.
It's a kind of a surfboard with a sail, instead of a windsurfboard
that's trying to be a surfboard. Sean nailed it with these Rocket fishes.

Sure, during the years the board got it's repairs and scars,...
normal after 6 years of heavy abuse.
But this time I'm not gonna repair her. It's time to rest.

One thing is for sure, the new boards that are on it's way got
loads of DNA of this beloved board ...

Winterly garden

Airbubbles in the ice

Doggy wanted to swim.... but the water turned solid :-))
