Klittmöller 2016 big waves!

Posted by aterrakayak på 04 oktober 2016

The surfseason have started really nice this year. In all the years we have been in Klittmöller (since 2009) we have had small or bigger waves except for one year. This time  we got a low pressure from the west.  Good winds 3-4 days before the weekend got us the best conditions i have experienced in Klittmöller ever. Fantastic clean 1,5 m waves and sometimes even bigger.

If you are not experienced in waves maybe we should explain how a +1,5 m wave feels like. If you are at the top looking down just before it breaks it feels like over 3 meter. So if you think we are chickens take a ladder and climb up at the top and look down. There you get the feeling. Well i chicken out 3-4 times on the saturday, the moment when you know you that you are half a second to late on the wave and if you go you ”know” it will brake over you. Offcourse you regrett the decision just two seconds later and feel like a chicken…;)

On the breefing i count to 94 participants on this years DKF Surf Symposium! Fantastic! People from Denmark, Norway and Germany come to the event, yes and also 2 swedes. Me and PM Jönsson from Halmstad. I have to say it again, we are very welcome to the symposium. Lise, Jesper and David and rest of the team give us all such a big warm welcome and give so much joy and good vibes. Its not only waves its nice dannish ”hygge” with good food and a lot of smiling and talking.

This was the second year the had booked Chris Hobson as a coach for the more advanced surfkayakers. Chris Hobson will be at Aterras Surf Kayak Week in Peniche 5-11/11. Its great to have someone to look at you in this very technical sport.

My own shape wasnt the best, it was six months since i was in the Watertech Ona. And it was nervous for a start, but along the day you be more use to the wavehight and got more nice waves and better sessions. Its was a very nice fun day and the weather was so warm so i just used my 1 mm Black Teck shirt.

Day two it was the Dannish open, waves looked very small on the sunday but in the morning sessions it was surprisingly good around 2-3 fot. My body was full of soureness from the day before, arms, shoulder, abs and i was a bit suprised as i have had much paddling(surfski) in Sardinia. Though this is so much tougher and all this explosive moves you can only train in the reall environment. My qualifying heat was a disaster, on the second chance i got to semi final. There offcourse was the man who allways beat me Jesper Tilstedt (for the last time;)) and i didnt go through to the quarter. Impressing to see how well many of the guys do fine manouvers in these small waves. Its not easy i can tell you.

Hope to see YOU next year in Klittmöller the last weekend of september.

Härlig BCU4 kurs med Ulrika och Nick

Posted by aterrakayak på 27 juni 2012

Vilken härlig upplevelse jag och de andra kurseleverna fick idag på Aterras och Green Adventures BCU kurs. Tror dagen var den roligaste jag varit med om på länge i en havskajak. Mycket spännande och väldigt intresant vädret gjorde sitt så det blev lite tuffa förhållande som sig bör när det är en kurs för mer erfarna. Och den långa Arrow Empowern visade sig vara en fena på att surfa den med, lite svår att styra när det börjar broacha av men jag fisk till två riktigt långa åk… inte illa för en 561 cm lång kajak… 🙂 Fortsättning följer…
