Man what a day, what a day at Paulina!!! I knew the set was fast, the acceleration even faster but I didn't expect to reach this incredible topspeed wich I reached due to bearing off into the open sea!! Big thanks for Martin (MvM) and his crew for this fast and easy going board that delivers record speeds !!!
I was happy Joeri joined us (Vincent and myself) on our home spot in this epic and big storm. In the very beginning the wind was a little hard and had a crash upwind due to a big gust that got me into a spinout. I got my harnessline broken and had to walk 800 m to get a new one!
After that my confidence wasn't so great anymore however after two runs direction Breskens I reached a nice 82.6 km an hour. That was very close to my old record on the Brace.

After some runs and gained conficence I saw a huge gust appearing along shore, the water was boiling at that time. I took the gust and went full speed downwind and reached this massive 2s topspeed wish is a big PR for me!!

What a Chrismas gift!!

We will be there for the next storm!! Thank you buddies for being present.
To bad for Vincent who broke his mast...

Best 500m run
