:thumb: It is on for this saturday !!!

Will be interesting to see if josh will be there since he has a boosting clinic in tarifa from the 7th-9th, janek just went to dakhla and ruben is still injured. Maybe the slufter bros or maarten will get a chance but I think they don't meet the age restriction.

They have good riders in their list.

And happy to see strap riders too...they will throw a bit more variation in...so we will see Boardoffs and OneFoots thrown into it as well while looping.

Is there a list of riders who would get in if someone of the 16 doesn't make it? The wind should be really nice from the side, not like the onshore madness in 2017, and it will be interesting to see what they can do and how rough the sea will be.

I am assuming it will start quite early in the morning. I wouldn't trust the forecast more than a day away, since I've been trying to go over there and got railed in my behind quite good from changing forecasts. :angryfire: This is the forecast right now on windy for zandvoort http://prntscr.com/nyg7so

They look at the wind window the morning itself but also they want to have an audience, I expect around 12.
Forecast now 40-52 kts from 11am till 5pm.
Holy shit this is going to be great, next to my home spot!!
