Realy nice first surf session on La Palme. It was pretty gusty so I kept the speedboard in the van. I wanted to explore first this spot a bit further out of the beach to prefend accidents on the first day. Get a bit feeling with the wind and how it all works here. To gain higher speed I had to move away towards the chop, but it was nice chop with similar high peaks... Sometimes 6.2 was pretty havey and I had to work hard not flying up in the air. 

It was nice to meet jvdhout and some other good windsurfers. 
And also Andre the other Gouwzee local was presented! 

very noc efirst experience and the digits will come later hopefully when I have a good day on the speedboard..

Best 500m
