Fanatic Freewave 2020


Fanatic freewave 2020Have you seen the all new Fanatic Freewave 2020 boards already?

My last post was about the new Fanatic range for 2020 but I couldn’t give you much new information as there simply wasn’t any to be shared.

As of today the new Fanatic wave and freestyle boardrange is online.

Fanatic Freewave 2020: What’s new?

Now that Fanatic has released the 2020 gear there is a lot to discuss about it.

The big news however is that the freewave stubby version is no longer available in their program.

I have been missing the more traditional version of the freewave, basically the shape / outline that made this board the best sold board of the Fanatic range for ages.

It’s also this “traditional shape” that made it the absolute benchmark and testwinner in all magazines for ages.

So, I’m happy with this change in design and would love to test the 85 liter version.

As I have a Fanatic Triwave 81 and a Skate 99 I did not see the benefit of owning a stubby freewave but the new shape makes me wonder if I should buy an 85 liter as one solution board or the 95 liter version as a substitute for the Skate I wanted to change for another board anyway.

So, to tell you what’s new I guess the big change is that it no longer is a stubby design but more of a traditional looking shape.

Fanatic Freewave 2020 video

Fanatic has released a cool product and action video of the new freewave line.

I’ve shared the video below and you should watch it right now.

It’s a great action packed video from the anual photoshoot of this spring in Maui.

Klaas Voget tells you all ins and outs about the new boardline in detail which I found to be very interesting.

I’ll stop talking about the new Fanatic freewave 2020 now and let Klaas and the actionshots convince you to try one as soon as possible (I know I will).

How To Use Social Media For Windsurfing Pro’s


Windsurfing without social media is unthinkable these days. The pro’s use it as a marketing tool for themselves and their sponsors.

And we the end consumers of windsurfing gear, use it as well, so do the windsurfing companies sponsoring the pro riders all year round.

Some of the proriders are doing a great job with it but most, unfortunately, suck at it. It’s not that they are not interested in doing a better job at it, they just don’t know what they could improve in their social media game.

Windsurfing Sucked But Not Anymore


There was a time I simply loved windsurfing, it was all I did in my spare time. Even when I could not be on the water, I was reading windsurfing magazines or was watching windsurfing videos.

I’ve also spend hours and hours on thinking my pile of gear over and thinking about what waveboard or skinny mast I needed to add to my quiver.

I was more to be found in my favorite local windsurfing shop than I was in any other kind of store.

Life was good…

How Much Money Can You Make Blogging


How much money can you make blogging is a question I get asked…a lot on one of my other blogs where I blog about making money online.

And before we go into answering that one question let me tell you a little bit more before we dive into it.

You see, when I reply to the email these people send me in almost all cases it turns out that they’re actually asking the wrong questions.

Well, it’s not actually a wrong question to ask but what they actually have in mind is a question more like this one:

How do I start a moneymaking blog of my own and how long does it take me to make money from that blog?

As both questions might end up with somehow the same answer the mindset is totally different and that’s fine as I explain the mostly in the same email.

Bonaire Windsurfing, A Perfect Windsurfers Destination


So you want to go on a Bonaire windsurfing holiday? We can’t blame you if that’s what you want. If there’s one location on earth that’s a true freestyle, slalom, freeride heaven for windsurfers than it must be that warm and sunny small island in the Caribean that listens to the name Bonaire.

Check any resource online you want when searching for the best location on how to learn to windsurf and Bonaire is probably among the topspots on the list if not on the absolute number one spot.

Being one of the Dutch A-B-C islands in the Caribean, Bonaire might be the smallest when compared to Aruba and Curacao (the other islands that together form the A-B-C islands).

Finally Windsurfing in Tarifa Is Around The Corner


Windsurfing in Tarifa has been on my bucket list for ages. Somehow I haven’t been there before and it’s “only” 2400 km from where I live.

I’ve been to Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Leucate, Barbados, Crete, and Rhodos but never actually made it to Tarifa.

But that’s finally going to change and I couldn’t be more stoked about it.

The weather is looking great and the wind predictions are promising as well.

Before taking a flight down there I’ll hope to first squeeze in some sessions at home before, and it’s looking like that’s going to happen as well.

But after that, in a few days, the warm sandy beaches of Tarifa are waiting for me.

What I Know About Tarifa…
