Christmas in Tarifa 2010 part 7

Sancti Petri is probibly the windiest place in south of Spain. Good wind almost every day. Also in the morning and as I stay in Tarifa we missed the morning session.
Check it out! The Patrik Diethelm freestyle 99 really got some junk in the thrunk.
Good session with Patrik diethelm freestyle 90 and the Hotsails Bolt 4.1. At the moment this pictures was taken there was no flat piece of water at all. That was a ahort period as the tide was changing.

Christmas in Tarifa 2010 part Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!!!!!! from relatively warm Tarifa. Today was probably one of the warmest days. There were some waves, but my wavesurfing skills are not that good, but it was okay.
Last days we had a few good windsurfing sessions. Good freestyle, but also a lot of current at the spot.
My companion on the water. This time far away from the boat. The other time it was under the boat.

Christmas in Tarifa 2010 part 3

Tarifa has been quiet for two days but the wind returned. Yesterday we had a sick freestyle session. 4.7 full power, but there was a lot of current.
Today the wind looks more. I'm now to bussy taking my hot chocolate, but I think I will go for a wave session.
One of the crashes of yesterday. Going for the Kono, but sometimes you just go to far backwards.
The car and trailer. Ready to Rock n Roll! Allready used the trailer two times to Sylt and now to Tarifa and it keep surviving. Keep praying it will survive the ride back.
The new Bolt is super easy to duck. Sometimes it even goes to fast for me :P! What to do now?

Christmas in Tarifa 2010 the trip

The trips to Tarifa is a 3000km drive from my place. In combination with the trailer who can just handle a 100km/h we estimated it would take us 30 hour +. As we ca both drive it is easier to keep driving. Allthough we had our first stop in Biarritz. We stayed there untill 05.00 when we leaved in the direction of Tarifa again.
The road is pretty nice. I didn't saw much of France, as I was sleeping and we were driving true the night.
Spain looks really cool. During you drive you pass around a million orange trees and there are some cool mountain roads where you can not really drive faster than 50, but still cool.
At the end it took us little over 30 hours. So really nice, and with the sleep over in France it felt really good.
My Companion travelster!! She took the hardest driving peaces, as I was sleeping when we were around Paris and she was driving when we passes Madrid to. Crazy bussy cities.
And here is the view. No wind at the moment, but the forecast looks good. Lets see what kind of pictures we can get next time. Enjoy!

Christmas in Tarifa 2010

It's time to go somewhere again. This time not on the other side of the world flying almost 20 hours to windsurf there. This time I stay in Europe. It's time to discover Tarifa. But before I have to finish school work, prepare the car and trailer and pack all my stuff.
The days before a trip are mostly kind of hectic. You have to prepare and think of everything, making sure you're not forgetting important stuff. Luckily, mot of the time I'm pretty relaxed.
The trip will start tommorrow evening. We suppose to leave around 21.00 with a first stop somewhere around Biarritz. We'll probably stay there for the night and maybe have a surfing session.
After that we drive further to Tarifa, where we will stay for two weeks. I really hope the wind and the temperature is good. really looking forward to it, after a long cold time of no surfing.
So hopefully some nice surfing shots soon!
