Today was a fantastic day. I was woken up at 7:30 at my coach’s place and shortly after we were on the road heading south. The driver was Naish windsurfer Michal Dziewiecki, copilot Mathias Lyngs and with me on the back seat was our coach Joachim Bech. Our destination was Nautic Surf & Ski in Herning and our mission was to pick up some brand new Naish equipment.
Nautic Surf & Ski are the importers of Naish products in Denmark and this is where we go to pick up our new gear. This time I had ordered an 8’5” Hokua and a 14’0” Javelin. Two boards that I probibly will be riding very frequently this coming summer season. It was quite shocking to look at the 14’0” as it was standing up its box inside the warehouse. Such big a board! There were some pretty funny but quite terrible jokes flying in the air then, about boards sliding out of their cardboard boxes on top of cars while driving on the highway. Ouch…
Luckily we made it back to Klitmøller with all the boards still on the roof
Here I eagerly unpacked the big boxes and pulled out the magic boards. They were so beautiful. Their shinny coated surfaces created a strong yellow glare underneath the shinning March sun. They looked so perfect. I just had to go try them out !
I paddled out at Bunkers with my brother Peter and our little cool friend Robert. The board was not as tippy as i expected, actually it was quite stable and yet still extremely manouverable. It was pure magic. The waves were small and glassy, the sun was passing down into a burning inferno of red colours in the West. An epic session on a perfect SUP board it sure was. The Hokua was so loose and full of speed. It was alive like no other SUP I have EVER tried !
I simply can’t wait to get out on the board again tommorrow!
Now I have a few weeks to dial in the board before I go to the Stand Up World Tour event in Britanny, France. I’m sure these weeks will pass fast
