Together with Peter we went for some testing&tuning of the new boards/fins/sail. Both very good powered by a 6.2 RS Racing EVO 1/2.

The wind was extremly gusty making it hard to build up a speedrun. (you had to be lucky) Had several "almost-crash" moments...

In the end I caught a 35kn gust, and just went full on downwind thru the chop. Never could imagen a 41+ kn peak over BIG chop on a fanatic falcon 79...

Thanks to the New 2009 Select Caspar Speed 29cm I was able to do that kind of speed safe over 0,5m chop. It is just amazing how much control I had, and I could stop just by pushing the tail down, no crash needed! Fastest run/topspeed ever for me on the Amstelmeer.

I know what fins I will order... I feel it is possible again to break my old Amstelmeer average :)
