Portugal und seine schönste Lagune

Für 10 Tage bin ich dem kalten Deutschland entflohen und es hat mich in den Norden von Portugal in die Nähe von Porto verschlagen. Esposende ist bekannt für einen der schönsten Wellenspots und
für seine Lagune. Die Lagune ist zwar ein Naturschutzgebiet, aber trotzdem darf man in einem kleinen Teil kiten gehen. Das ist mal kulant. Ich finde… das hat doch Vorbildfunktion für diverse
Spots in Norddeutschland. ;)

Das Wetter war leider nciht so warm wie erhofft. Aber wenn man kuschelige 6 Grad in den Tagen vorm Urlaub gewohnt war, erscheinen einem Temperaturen zwischen 15 und 20 Grad nahezu karibisch. Also
alles halb so wild. Im Norden von Portugal trifft das Sprichwort “Viel Wind, viel Wetter” bestens zu. Fast jeden Tag hatten wir Wind und das nciht zu knapp! Der Süden von Portugal, die Algarve,
ist eher für Leichtwind bekannt, in Esposende hingegen hats fast jeden Tag so geballert, dass man 6 oder 8er Psycho IV fahren musste. So war mit Race-Training leider nicht soviel. An
Schwachwindtagen konnte ich dann meine – ich nenne sie “Sylt-Skills” – verbessern. Mit großem Speed 3 bei auflandigem Wind und zwei Meter Welle mit Raceboard rauskommen. Sagen wir es so: es gibt
definitiv entspanntere Situationen! :D

Bei Wind aus Nordwest kann man in der Lagune kiten. Ein wahrer Traum! Zwar teilweise ganz schön böig, aber das saubere Glattwasser lässt alles vergessen. Die Lagune hätte ich nur zu gerne vor
meiner Haustür und ein Privatnutzungsrecht. Da gehen die Tricks viel leichter von der Hand als im Ostseekabbel.

Kulturell betrachtet ist Esposende leider etwas mager. Die größte Attraktion ist … der Strand! :D Tja, somit war das ein reiner Kiteurlaub für Kulturbanausen. Naja, es gibt schlimmeres.

Ein Video von der Lagune ist in Arbeit, Fotos aber schonmal vorab. 

Bin grad mal mit der Kitejunkie schwalbe zum SUPen gefahren :)

The KSP announces its 2012 Annual General Meeting to be held on May 28 at the Muchaxo Hotel at Guincho Beach/Cascais, Portugal.

With many of the KSP riders, crew and board members already present to prepare for the Cascais Kite Surf Pro, taking place from June 1-10, 2011, the KSP hopes to have as many of them as possible in attendance for the associations first AGM. Portugal’s central location will also make it possible for the greatest number of KSP industry members to have the chance to join.

KSP President Kristin Boese says: “It is important for us to hold our 2012 AGM before the start of the season so that we can reflect on our inaugural year and discuss things to come. We would like as many riders, industry members and partners as possible to join and it simply seems like Portugal will be the best opportunity to bring everyone together.”

The KSP invites all riders, partners, industry members, event organizers and the public to join the meeting, which is scheduled to start at 10am on May 28, 2012 at Muchaxo Hotel, Guincho Beach/Cascais and is expected to take approximately 2 hours.

The provisionary agenda for the first KSP AGM will include:
Opening of the Meeting
Presentation of Annual Report
Presentation of Accounts
2012 Goals and Visions
Any other business
Future KSP Meetings

The KSP is excited about its first AGM in which it will present the 2011 annual and financial reports and discuss the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

Kasper Larsen Juul’s Maui Report

NorthSails team rider Kasper Lasrsen Juul (DEN-11) reporting from his latest training trip on Maui, testing the WARP F2012 and meeting sail designer Kai Hopf:

"The trip was my preparation for the 2012 season, and it turned out to be great. Before I went I was in contact with Kai, who offered to pick me up in the airport on Maui. It was really great to meet the man who has designed the sails, and to learn about his ideas and thoughts behind the sails.

During the winter I had only had a couple of opportunities to try out the new Warps.

In these conditions in Denmark it is hard to really get a feel for sails… (pic. 2)

In the conditions on Maui it is so much easier… (pic. 1,3)

The sails are working really well this year and has improved compared to last year. I found that the acceleration of the jibes is better and they are also more powerful. I can’t wait to get them to the race course.

It was really great to see the effort that was already put into developing the sails for next season. You can sometimes end up with the impression that freeride sails are not tested thoroughly. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was really interesting to see that Kai and Peter are out testing new ideas almost every day.  

The level on Maui is extremely high, and I had some excellent training partners in Pierre and many other world cup sailors who was there preparing for the upcoming season and doing photo shoots."
