So the season begins

Had a very nice first session of the year in Hornbæk on my SUP - and also first test of my new Werner Nitro paddle - the wind eased of and the waves became nice and clean and 2-3 foot.
Good thing that it was a workout as the water was 7 C and the air 11 degrees C

Old and new

I have been using my old Mistral Competition together with my new Hot SuperFreak 6.7 Ultralight and they work perfectly together

Another board

I have just purchased another board....... (Some of the old ones gotta go now.....)
I got a good offer for an used JP FreeStyle Wave 98 III that is gonna be used at the weekend home.
It will be ideal with sails between 4.7 to 6.7 but will be the working horse for the 5.3 and 5.8. Depending on the water state and state of mind the board can be transformed by moving the straps between the inboard and outboard positions changing it from a manouver board to a blasting board.
Basically this board is what used to be called a waveslalom board but since freestyle is the new hip its called freestyle wave now.
I'm building a quiver to keep there so I don't have to lug everything back and forth - I think this will an ideal board for the conditions around that area where there is a range of conditions from flat, to chop to waves. So know its just to wait for warmer weather............

A cold day

Things came together - a possibility for a session in Hornbæk
It was 10 degrees both in air and water - When i arrived it was a bit offshore so i rigged a 4.7 on my new 95 litre ExowavePro and had a great time, even though I never get comfortable in that kind of cold - later when the wind became more on-shore I changed down to my 75 litre an got one of the worst "over the handlebars" ever and hit my head hard into the sail - I went in and rigged my new 4.2 superfreak - it looks supercool especially when the sun hits it - some said it was very visible from the beach - just what I intended

Just to get an idea of the great conditions- even thoug the picture doesn't do it justice.

New sails

I just got my new '09 Superfreaks. A 6.7 UL and a 4.2 "regular" in my own designs.
I got a UL (ultralight) to see what the fuzz is all about.
Only tried the 6.7UL once but its very promising - I think it looks pretty cool with those flames.....
