Croyde October 2018

In October 2018 I traveled to the UK for a reunion surf trip with my friends Sander and Vera. Vera lives in London, from there it is a 4-5 hour drive to the beautiful town of Croyde. At Croyde we stayed in a glamping hut, overlooking the surf. The first day the waves were too big for us and there was a heavy wind, the second day we tried and caught a couple of waves, but still had trouble taking off because of the heavy offshore wind spray blinding when trying to drop in a wave. On the third and last day however, the wind had dropped, the sun came through and the waves were as epic as they can be. At the end of the day I brought my camera out and took a few great shots!

Mission XL

The biggest windsurfing event in The Netherlands is the Mission. The Dutch pro freestyle riders and some guest riders come here to show their tricks and it is possible to test the newest windsurfing gear. The HDR picture of the green Volkswagen van was chosen to be on the poster of this event.
