Dahab Day 6-7

Hello everybody

Been 3 days since I wrote on my blog. The last 2 days where really good here with the first day sailing on 4.7 in the morning which was really good but only for 2 hours and then the wind went down a little bit so that was the freestyle sailing session for that day. In the afternoon I went for some slalom sailing with alex what was really cool and made it a perfect day.

The second day was my best day here so far I was sailing for 4 hours on my 4.3 fully powered up and was trying all the spots a bit here in Dahab. You have 4 main spots in the bay of Dahab. The lagoon where so far I haven’t surfed jet because its pretty full with beginners usually and can get really crowded but should have some nice shops for shaka if been told so maybe I go check it out tomorrow. Than you have the 2 flat water place’s Speedy’s where you surf next to a small reef which give nice flat water and has been so far the place where I had my best session and the most consistent wind. Then you also have Baby bay which is the place where all the movies are filmed most of the time like 4 dimension for example and is really good working with high tide as you can still surf a bit over the reef so you can get some nice speed before entering the flat water. As last spot you have Kamikazi which is actually just outside the bay and behind the reef and where the swell is going whit the wind but not really breaking but pretty big I guess it was today up to 2-3 meters and it wasn’t yet the most windy day of the week so it still should get bigger tomorrow and then maybe some ramps will build up.

So now you know a bit more about the place here next time I really hope I can put some picture’s online but so far I still couldn’t get on to them so hopefully it will work out tomorrow so I can upload them on my next update

Stay tuned!

Cheers Dieter

Dahab day 3-4

hello everybody

Been 2 days since i updated my blog and also 2 days with windsurfing.

The first day we made the trip to El Tur which was perfect. After a sleep of 7 hours we woke up at 6 O'clock to leave at 7 for ore taxidrive from 2 hours up to El Tur. I was going together with 4 guy's from Club Vass who had there day off and came up with the idee. When we arrived the water was empty and it was just looking so perfect for freestyle we disided to skip breakfeast and go emmidiatly on the water.

I rigd up my brandnew S-1 4.3 and went on the water emiddiatly. We surfed for 2 hours in a row and did some filming in the end to take a break afterwearts for some pizza and water. The wind stayed good and we went for some more filming but also some fotoshooting which gave really sick picture's which I will try to put online as soon as possible. After the fotoshooting the wind died and we discided to pack everything up and wait for the taxi who would pick us up at 5 to go back do Dahab again. After a long drive, foot and shower I felt as sleep in 5 min. it was a great day!

Today the wind wasn't so good and strong, I only had a session from one hour which was sometimes a bit underpowerd with my 4.7 which is my biggest sail. But afterwarts I still had great fun on the beach so the day past pretty fast.

Tommorow it's not going to be windy, but the forcast for next week looks sick so we will defenetly will have some sick sailing over here in Dahab!

Dahab 1ste Day off surfing

Hello everybody

Today it was windy almost all day long. It was my first session on my new sails and started with a 4.7 in the morning at 9 which actually was the best session off the day. I got to know the spot a bit and learned to now the people from Club Vass a bit better. I did 2 more session today but non of them both where so good as the first one because it was more gusty!

I didn't take any pictures today but tommorow we planned a trip to El Tur to do some filming and photoshooting sow hopefully I will get some good pictures and video footage!

Hello everybody

Welcome on my new blog!
It's something new I want to try to keep you all updated about where I'm ore what my plans will be for the next few weeks ore other things that are important.
I want to try to update my blog at least 2 to 4 times a month and when I'm on holiday and i have internet probably a bit more.

For the moment I'm in Dahab where I will stay for 3 weeks in total to do some training before Sylt end of next month. I just arrived today and mist the wind there was in the morning which gave me the time to pack everything out so it's ready for the next days when it's windy.

Tommorow the windconditions look really good and maybe i can try to make some smal pictures to put on my blog but that's not yet for sure.

I will put on a new blogitem soon!
