Change of scenery
There is nothing better than scoring good conditions at your home ground. Dieter, who lives on the island of Tenerife, spent two months back home in Belgium and was able to get lots of quality sessions at home and in the Netherlands.
Here is his video titled “Autumn sessions”.
“After a windy summer on the Canaries, I had the chance to spend 2 months in Belgium together with my parents and enjoy some sessions at the places in the Netherlands in all kind of different conditions. I got to see how windsurfing got more popular once again in the Netherlands and how the next generation of windsurfers is progressing fast to make sure the presence from Belgium & Netherlands on tour will stay strong in the upcoming years!
Even though September wasn’t that windy, October gave us some great sailing conditions both on the sea and on the lake. I managed to get a few sessions on camera filmed by Yentel Caers (Brouwersdam), Felix Volkhardt (Brouwersdam), my mother (Oesterdam) and my sister (Domburg) to put this small clip together from mainly Freestyle but also some Wave action before going back to Tenerife for winter.
Thanks to everyone for filming, my Sponsor Severne for keeping me going this year and may 2021 return slowly back to normal with more travels, more competitions & a lot more windsurfing out there!“
