Portugal 2018

Image
Portugal in the off season holds some huge potential for windsurfing. However, we were quite unlucky with the wind. We went from Guincho, to Caparica to Fonte da Telha, to Carcavelos, to Peniche, to Lagoa de Albufeira and to Foz do Arelho. Everywhere we went, it was quite sketchy. Most of the time, the swell was quite big or even too big. I even destroyed a nearly new sail in the Guincho shorebreak. Here are some pictures:


Une session de windsurf de rêve

La réalité est un miroir de nos pensées. On se dit qu'il fait trop froid, qu'on ne peut pas naviguer car il fait moins 5 degrés. Mais franchement, si on a vraiment envie de naviguer, rien ne t'empêche de te mettre dans l'eau. Faut profiter de toutes les différentes sessions peu importe ce que les autres disent.












Un jour de février à la mer baltique

Le soleil brille, un vent glacial souffle, irrégulièrement, poussant des nuages de différentes tailles. Les plus grandes parmi eux menacent les gens sur la plage avec des petits flocons de neige. L'eau est d'une transparence incroyable.

November Sessions

The title says it all. A recap of some of the sessions I got in last month.

Right at the doorstep

No driving, no traffic, just walking out of the house and enjoying what nature has to offer... Even though the wind direction was not perfect and winds were variable in strength. Here are some photos:

Nice conditions at home

It is unusually cold in northern Germany these days. But that seems to help with the wind. Yesterday was one of those perfect stormy summer days. One of those days, after a long spell without wind when you do not expect much only to be rewarded with nearly perfect conditions. Thanks to Markus for taking these pictures.
