hello there, here are the latest pics from Hossegor taken on Friday, great Southerly winds and great waves, lucky there was an unknown fotographer that’s sent me those pics via internet.

The next day was even better 45knots winds and 4m waves, only the 7m ONE could handdle those conditions !!!!but unfortunatelly no pics!! ah well it always happens!! thanks to Pascal Perinelle for the pics, John Zimmerman and Ocean rodeo for the great equipment they provide me.

by the way the go-joe could have helped two guys that week end here that have lost their boards, gone out to the ocean!! I gave them the adress of the site they might order one!!!

by the way this is another board john, different than the yellow one!! more technical but good too…

there is snow in my yard Phil, and these pics look fanatastic! :D :D :D
Wish I could join you for a sesh, the conditions looked fun on this day!
what size one where you flying?
nice waves…I love the color of the water there. Nothing compares to the energy of a wave that has traveled vast distances just for you!
Is that board a bit narrower? nice shape… 8)
It looks like its just will not spin out no matter how much you lay into it….those are some totally sweet sprays Phil!
I think I need some! :twisted:

Phil,
I got my mako pro today! You are gonna love this thing. I haven’t riden it yet, but just looking at the shape you can tell this is one sweet board.
Big difference is the nicely rounded rails, no sharp edges. And the tips are flipped a bit too. Very interesting. I think this baby is going to turn tight.
Can’t wait to try it in the next NW storm, like…maybe tommorow!

I put it together last night. The pads are larger this year and cover all the strap holes, nice. I’m really wanting to use this virgin today, it needs to be named, but its gusting near 50 mph out there right now, with some lightning too. Not good for kiting.
Hopefully it calms down later on. Hmmm, I think I need two go-joes.

Im intrigued by this board, I think I am really a Zen type of rider but it would be nice to try one neverless.
