Dutch Fun Speeders teamweekend in Makkum!

Took my 30 years old custom build Kosmos Wave (255x58) from the shack after many years to give it a try again.

It was fun, wind 22-37 knots, North Sails 4.7, big smile! :-D

Introduction Fanatic 2016 Falcon Slalom and North Sails Warp F2016

This weekend I went to the Real Trip event in Makkum to help promote the 2016 Fanatic/North surfstuff. Saturday morning early we had a lot work to do unpacking because the container just arrived that week. A bit like an early Sinterklaas or Christmas. :-)

With this event we introduced the 2016 Fanatic Falcon and Falcon TE and the North Warp F2016 in the Netherlands! We got a lot of positive comments, some quotes:

"Especially the Warp stoo out in positive way, much nicer than a picture can show"
"Impressed by the look and feel of the new Warps"

"Awesome boards!"
"So the Falcon and Falcon TE have exactly the same shape? Nice offer!"
"The weight difference is not that much!"

Some pictures of our playground!

Looking forward to give this stuff a try (or two, three, four, .....). ;-)
