Beautiful Speed Surfing day here in Luderitz. Almost perfect conditions. Was struggling a bit with finding the right equipment. 1st 5.8 with 19 really thin NoLo. Had lots of spin outs, as the canal was too downwind. Put a slightliy thicker fin inside, that was much better. After a while I changed down to 5.2 proto sail wich is insanely good! So fast, unreal. Topspeed of 55.26kn - 102.35 kmh! Super happy with that. But, just after a few runs, right when the wind was kicking in perfectly, my Greek Proto Board delaminated as we were sanding it too much down to the carbon. Had to switch to my old board, wich was ok but I missed about half an hour as that board had a damage from the flight. Had to repair it first with Thorsten Mallon (thanks for your help). Was so close to the German Record, was pretty sure to break it but wind died pretty quickly as predicted. 

Next time, big time!
