Just perfect ....

A quick glance at the weather maps yesterday told me that it was time to check out a new spot that I'd wanted to sail for a long time already. In Northern Germany, Whit Monday equals heavy traffic and crowded spots. With my home freestyle spot Saal near Rostock being invaded by thousands of kite boarders and with parking fees on the rise, it was not hard to give this spot a skip and drive a little further to find perfect freestyle conditions in an uncrowded lagoon. The spot did not look very windy when we arrived. The wind seemed to stay further out. However, the water state was just really deceiving. Since this spot is mostly knee-deep there were not many white caps forming and the water surface was flat as a pancake. I was perfect to slightly overpowered on 4.8 and 99l. Here are some photos shot by Hannes Bubolz. Thanks a lot buddy!

Just a quick update... The first German Freestyle Battle of 2012 took place yesterday. I was really unlucky this time and am not happy with my result at all. But that's competition I suppose. On the plus side, I now know that it's possible to do freestyle on a 3.6. A longer report might follow later this week. Not sure, but there should be lots of photos and videos around. Here are two pics from yesterday, thanks to Lukas for shooting them:
