Well... now all the stress is over... finally... I arrived to this year Londor Indoor very nervous about the jumps in the ramp, but even beiing very scared at the begining and not being able to go for it in the first attempt of the trials I could overcome my fear and go for it! It was a great experience in all the aspects: it was fun, exciting, a great show and a very nice week of competition... Together with Daida, Iballa and Junko I think we did a great ladys performance and had a great time!

Anne in South Africa

Hi Girls,
Last December I had some good sailing in South Africa. We had a lot of wind, nearly every day and I had a lot of fun over there. I hope this year we get a lot more Wind on my home spots in Holland than last year.
Wish you all a healthy and windy season!

Epic Kona Day in Lanes

On December 18th 2005 we had another epic day of incredibly strong Kona wind in Lanes with over masthigh waves. Winds speeds topped at 45 knots in gusts. There was lots of tree damage due to the fact that most of the plant growth on Maui is so used to the predictable trade winds. The impression on the water was unbelievable - a big NW swell in combination with those blasting side offshore Kona winds made up for very difficult but spectacular sailing conditions.

Riders got blown off the top off waves when the gusts hit full force. At one point the day got a full on Naish show with Robby Naish, Robby Seeger, Michi Schweiger and Tristan Boxford. Other impressive sailors that made it out where: Jason Polakow, John Skye, Nik Baker and Anne Marie Reichman. It is hard to describe the fascination of those unique Kona Wind days on Maui but when you have seen the incredible 40 foot spray that goes off those waves - it is something you will never forget.
