Back again

by Maarten on August 30, 2009

I’m back from a great holiday. Lake Garda is really great. Good food and drinks, beautiful scenery, and fabulous weather.

The last few weeks a lot has been happening in the windsurfing world. The speedworldcup took place, the PWA is in an advanced state and the Mission 2009 has been held. Also, a lot of brands are busy promoting the windsurfing equipment for 2010.

The upcoming weeks you can expect new posts about the topics I mentioned so you are completely informed again.


On holiday

by Maarten on July 31, 2009

I will be on short break. I will be traveling around in Italy. Just to look around but also do some windsurfing at Lake Garda.

See you in two weeks!


Neilpryde Magic Moments

by Maarten on July 28, 2009

Magic Moments – That’s the name for the new Neilpryde video. In this video you can expect full action images shot at the pwa world tour in Pozo. Antoine Albeau dominates the slalom windsurfing course and Ricardo Campello is attempting a triple loop.

Campello didn’t get the $10.000 ,- that was promised to him if he landed a triple forward loop. But because of his good attempt he will receive $5.000,-. Still very nice :-).

Check the 8 minute windsurf video here:

Do you know what a bongka is? Gollito Estrodo wrote on his blog that he added the bongka to his freestyle arsenal. Check here how he jumps this new freestyle move at the PWA World Cup on Gran Canaria.

Naish logo Robby Naish is really busy building a surfing empire and is expanding his business. An great example is the recently launched website for all the 2010 Stand up Paddling (SUP) equipement. You can check all the new Naish SUP gear over here:


Finian not always a gentleman

by Maarten on July 15, 2009

Finian Maynard (KV-11) was probably pissed off since he pulled a fellow windsurfer from his board, as shown in the video below. I’m wondering what they are talking about and it’s not clear why Finian acted like that. Phil Horrocks reports about the Gran Canaria PWA World Tour for Boardseeker magazine. Check out the video below.

by Maarten on July 7, 2009

The world cup on the Costa Teguise has ended. Jose ‘Gollito’ Estredo (Fanatic/North Sails) and Sarah Quita Offringa (Starboard/NeilPryde) had both really dominant performances and managed to win the pwa event.

Lots of sun no wind. What to do?

by Maarten on June 26, 2009

The weather forecast is fantastic for this weekend, lots of sun but probably no wind. But who says that you need a lot of fun to rip hard? There are plenty ways to have fun on low wind days.

Boom and sail broken

by Maarten on June 4, 2009

Last week on Wednesday was a great evening to go out on the water after a day working. The wind strength and direction was good. At the beach I rigged my 7.8 RS Slalom sail since I thought it was around 15-20 knots. Unfortunately I was wrong…
