The winter in Denmark has been very cold, it seems as though the global heating has had the opposite effect in Scandinavia leading to ice age conditions with 3-4 months of full-on winter with snow and ice. Therefore it has been quite a while since I was out surfing and it was with great optimism when a friend and I got on the plane a few weeks ago to visit warm Cape Town in South Africa. I was only going to stay there for two weeks so I was prepared to get as much water time as possible. I brought the 2011 Envy 5, 7 and 9 and a Liquid Force Rawson 5’11 together with my regular surf board. And the conditions did not disappoint me. Out of possible 14 days we got around 11 kiting days, 3 days of surfing and some days doing both. We had waves from ½m to 4m and winds for an underpowered 9m to a maxed out 5m. We tried quite a few different spots but ended up concluding that the spot closest by was actually also the best so that was perfect as well.
Here is a few pics from two sessions we had down there, it shows me using the 2011 Envy which I find ideal for my waveriding as it allows me to focus on the waves and lets me ride unhooked without having to hassle with the kite combined with a direct c-like feeling and great depower.
Back home the spring has finally arrived and I can not wait to get out there and ride!
