Difficult day with a lot of chop and seaweed in the water. The seaweed made it a bit dangerous, so had to be carefull in the runs.

First time with 5,0 Koncept. First half an hour I was struggling with the settings. Didn't have enough downhoul and outhoul. After making the necessary changes the sail performed perfectly. A lot of control and very easy. After an hour I was used to the circumstances I had some nice runs. All in all happy with the day even though we all hoped for more epic conditions.

After a wave session with my 3.7 I saw the wind strength decreasing to reasonable levels and decided to rig my 5.6. The chop had pretty much vanished because of the wind shift and for a brief moment of time the conditions were spot-on! After deciding right foot forward wasn't my thing today I tried a Luc Salomons (Trademark pending?)(a left-first run ending in or next to the reeds) which resulted in a Max speed that is less than 1 km/h under my PB :). After this the WNW-wind increased and the chop got higher again. At this point I decided to call it a day. Had a lot of fun. Great start of the year! 

Makkum rules!
