Srima, 14.04.2013.

Very nice maestral, quite strong: from 15 to 25 knots. I expected less, so I came in with 8,6 sail - too big! But, anyway it was a pleasure to ride up and down to island Prvić and back to the shore.

But, the most important thing was that I could be barefoot and in summer outfit! Finally, warm, warm, warm! :-)

South wind day in Croatia, 12.04.2013.

Very nice and windy day all around Croatia! South on the Adriatic, south-west in the continent. Windsurfers everywhere: on lakes near Koprivnica and Zagreb; northern part of Istria; island Krk, island Pag, Srima, Jadrija and Jadrtovac, around Split and all the way down to semi island Pelješac.

Some photos from around:

Srima, Croatia, 08.04.2013.

One of the first mistrals (northwest wind) this year (at least for me). Again, beautiful sunny day, wind cca 20 knots: enough for 7,8 sail. What to say? I didn't scream: I was busy enjoying in dynamic silence of pure windsurfing at its best!

Ždrijac, Croatia, 07.04.2013.

Nice little shallow bay, just beside old city of Nin. Not much space; not much fun expect you are into speed. Bora can be strong, although always gusty. This time, beautiful Sunday, sunny and coldish, but speed condition excellent! A lot of waiting for the next gust to come, but than - 30 seconds of pure speed bliss!

Jadrtovac, Croatia, 05.04.2013.

South wind whole night, quite strong, but with rain. Perfect morning for sleeping! So I did it - overslept the right time for action (morning, from 07:00 to 10:00)! I came just in time to catch last gusts of dying wind.

Nevertheless, it's great to be in action again. Loft Blade 7,0 was way to small, but still I succeeded to squeeze some power from it. Now, waiting for Sunday bora!
