Yup, and she rips at a level that can make most grown men jealous.
I just finished a short clip of some windsurf video material from all kind of places over the world: Hawaii, Canaries, Brazil, Denmark and my home: The Netherlands.
My actual plan was to make a video of one of my trips, but most off the time instead of filming, I ended up my spare time by sailing on the water (how it supposed to be). Besides my boyfriend is a very addicted windsurfing him self too, so it’s a bit of a struggle to have a private camera man… Not that I want it any different, because sharing our passion together on the water is one of the best things there is.
But why not make a short clip of all different kind of filming material together of last year(s)? It’s not that I only train and windsurf on one spot. Windsurfing for me is travelling and exploring windsurfing spots all over the world. For me it is more that just a sport, it is a passion!
With friends, family, people of work/university a lot of the time the subject arise what you do besides working or hobbies? If I tell them I windsurf I hear a lot of the following reactions:
Windsurfing? You mean like kiting? Yeah, kiting seems like fun! Windsurfing? Pretty old fashioned sport eh? Windsurfing? Is that with a sail? And so on…. I guess you heard a lot of them yourself.
Surprised reactions are not uncommon if I tell them you can do it all over the world as long as there is wind (and there better be waves too) and you can also jump and waveride with it. I especially love those faces when it is a cold rainy day in Holland and I tell them I go windsurfing right now. I can really appreciate weather when most people are complaining about it. To show them what I do during windsurfing I put together this little clip with freeride, a little freestyle, jumping and a bit of wave riding. Just to get an impression what windsurfing is for me.
Last but not least, special thanks to all my different kinds of camera man/woman who made this filming material possible! Especially Jan Peter Popta and Carl Calle Nyberg.
Thereby also big thanks to my sponsors: Fanatic, North Sails, ION and Sportzeker!
After spending almost a year on a boat exploring the coast of Brazil Kauli Seadi (BRA-253) returned to Hawaii in November. He again was blessed with typically great conditions at Sprecks and Ho’okipa.
Check it out the first of his new video clips…
MacG productions hooked up with the danish up and coming freestyle windsurfer Rasmus Oeagelund in South Africa and filmed some of his winter training. Rasmus has a big passion for windsurfing and together with his great personality, attitude and style in his moves he will go far!
Fabian Weber and a crew of German friends in South Africa for some Wavesailing.
Since a few years a small group of friends around Fabi Weber travels down to South Africa to have fun on and off the water…
The weather was generally a bit different than the last few years. The evenings were usually quite fresh – so we have had to wear a sweater and sometimes a light jacket over it. Only the last two days we sat topless at night on the terrace. The South-Easter was only tow times really good that we could rig 4.2 and smaller. I think I was riding 80% on 4.6qm. The wind was mostly very offshore, even in spots which are normaly sideshore. Whitsands extremely gusty. We were one time at the Cape .. But three times in Elandsbai … Global warming? Maybe, maybe not! It was just different … Since we all had our SUPs with us, we were not sad and got some good swells. I think we all got our money. Oh, and the extremely low price RAND has made the trip quite cheap!
On January 24th 2014, winds reached over 50 knots in the gusts, and larger then normal waves came into El Cabezo beach in El Medano, and only few riders hit the water. Alex Mussolini was one of them, using his smallest 3.3 sail, proved that he deserved to finish 2nd in the PWA tour last year, showing his amazing timed wave360s, goiters and huge jumps.
“We got some epic conditions here in Tenerife, the best I’ve seen since I moved to the island 6 years ago” – Alex Mussolini
Enjoy the awesome action!
