Or, you are interested in waveriding on a foil :D

Anyway... I hope you enjoy watching :bye:

Look so much fun, great footage! I haven't taken my foil out in waves yet, still getting my transitions and toeside riding down a bit more...

Was this a gopro max? Or was this a gopro 9 with the lens mod?

What bar/lines are you on, do you have a high Y or a low V?

:thumb: Yeah! is was fun...

It is a GoPro 9 and it is a low V on the bar. That works pretty well... But one thing: If a have too less line tension, the kitemount slides down... :lol:

Great vid! I can feel your stoke :D I´m about your level with foil in the waves. Such a great feeling!
Super nice conditions for North Sea with slightly advanced foil skills, I have to admit.

I´m so greedy about being allowed to visit the Dutch cost again... (damn Corona...)

Nice, How far up the lines is your mount? Which line mount did you use?

Thanks.

Awesome video! Looks like a lot of fun. How was the wind and which kite size did you go for?

:thumb: The mount is around 10m up in the lines. Which one it is, I don't know :D . It's maybe 5 or 6 year old, such a cheap one from amazon :roll:

:bye: We around 14 knots and maybe 16knots gusts and a went with a 7m kite. It was perfect :rollgrin:

Usually we don't have such waves in the north sea when there is "no" wind. So a was super lucky or this is something unique at that spot. I've never went there before... But I will definitely come back :D :naughty:

I experienced similar wave conditions at similar wind in Ijmuiden once with a north-north-westerly wind direction.
I expected much smaller waves, but there was stronger wind during the night before and somehow some "remaining" waves. Super nice it was :lol:

I haven't been foiling in Ijmuiden, but I'm going to give it a try soon :D

Take care :bye:
