Jeri part 3

Yesterday the waves arrived in Jeri. It is not super big but together with the good winds for my 4.1 Bolt full power. We could do some nice jumping. Niek and I were bussy doing backloops. Steven was training his pushloops and Jelle still doind and perfectioning his one handed ponches coming in. A lot of fun. Tommorrow we will go to a lagoon for perfect flat water freestyle practising. We can make some nice pictures there for sure. I will post those pictures in a few days. Here is a picture of me doing a backloop on a pretty small wave. I was doing them on all waves I could find. Some were a litte to small.

Jeri part 2 sunset action

Here some late sunset pictures made by Niek vd Linde (http://www.teamthebunch.com)

Jeri part 2

It took us a long time to come here. Our trip started in Amsterdam. With KLM we flew to Soa Paolo and from Sao Paolo to Fortaleza. From Fortaleza we still had to drive 5 hours to Jericaocaora. We arrived thursday at 06.00. We couldn't sleep anymore so we arranged everything with our equipment and house and at 11.00 we went on the water. On of the locals, Ian Mouro, advised me to take 4.1 so I did that and I had a perfect session. Small waves to do ponch and suer flat water when you sail towards the beach.

After 2 days the locals told us that the wind was shitty. Luckely shitty is the Portugese word for 4.7 full power. So I had another to perfect sessions with 4.7.

Besides the sailing life here is pretty relaxed. There is not much to to besides surfing, but I don't need something besides surfing. The nightlife is pretty good to. Drinks are really cheap and everything is outside. Super nice to end your surfsession.

Here are some pictures. Action pictures are made by Britt van der Eyken and lifestyle by Niek vd LInde and me.

Jeri part 1

Tommorrow is the day. I will go, together with Steven van Broekhoven, Niek vd Linde, Jelle Caers and Britt van der Eyken to Jericaocaora, Brazil. We will stay there for 6 week to train with all the other pros that will be training there this winter.

Tommorrow we'll start at Schiphol, Amsterdam. Than fly to Sao Paolo and than to Fortaleza from were we have to take an taxi to Jeri. So upcoming day is all about travelling. Hopefully thursday the fun will start. I hope to show you some nice pictures soon and hopefully some video footage to.

Keep you updated.

Strand Horst

Not a really good session, but still fun. I tested a new kind of extension, still top secret. I was on my freestyle 90 and my brand new Hotsails maui Bolt 4.1. It felt super light and it feels really springy (easy top pop out of the water). I now sailed the Bolt full overpowered and it wasn't hard to control it was good to control in overpowered conditions. Here some Pictures. Later on I will get some more.
