Battle of the Generation 2012

After the success of the first edition of the Battle of the Generations it took some time for conditions to be perfect for a second contest. After two year conditions were better than ever on an amazing windsurfday at Scheveningen. The windsurfer from Plankenkoorts showed off some awesome moves. In the end the battle was won by Javier Sint Jago.

Battle of the Generations 2010

On tuesday the 14th of September 2010 the old and new generations of Plankenkoorts members competed against eachother in a fantastic windsurfing event. Wind was 25-40 knots, waves up to 2.5 meters! After surfing my heat, I decided to go out for some fun surf. Almost made a backloop by accident, which felt great! So I wanted to try more looping, but I got stuck in the shorebreak and a wave broke my mast! Crap! However, this gave me the time to take some great pictures of the other windsurfers. It was cold, raining and very very windy, but they gave away an amazing show and it was really fun to watch. My camera seemed to hold up pretty well with all the wind, sand and rain. Thanks to Plankenkoorts for organizing this amazing event!
