ok, today we did 3 races...I cannot feel my legs anymore!
Anyway, I had a good first race, came in 7th, then a shitty one with 12th and the last 9th.
My overall now is 7th for the German Course Race.
Since my gear still didn't make it from Fuerteventura (no 12 days missing), I too something completely different...a Flysurfer Silver Arrow 19.
And a Spleene Door 164! This is an awesome lighter wind setup...the foil goes upwind perfectly, so does the board. Still others are better, but I think to take a directional in the next race...Tilmann, who is the fastest GPS kiter with 52.9 knots, shaped a race board, which I will try tomorrow, to see if I can be even better with this one.
On my last race I took a 15 sqm Flysurfer Speed.
The races where dominated by the Spaniard Sami Gali, who just went upwind so well...and his girlfriend as well, so looks like the boards they use are currently in these conditions the way to go...
Bruno, already race world champion of the PKRA, had no chance and scored overall 6th, one position before me.
Second overall is Sky Solbach and the biggest surprise is Flysurfer's Armin Harich, who is partner in the company and head of design...he has an overall ranking of 3rd!
Armin never raced in course racing before, and used the Silver Arrow 19 and the Spleene Door...this is very amazing and Armin super happy!
He is even before Sean Farley, Ken Winner and Bruno Sroka!
Now it would be very interesting, if Armin takes a directional, what position he would get with it...since Directionals are always scoring top rankings.
It will be also interesting, if we have stronger winds, how and if the ranking will change.
But I'm sure, that with my Rhino2 20 I would never have scored that good.
I will also try a directional the next days...so we will see if this changes anything...but I cannot jibe that good, so I have to think about something there...
The world champion fight between Angela Peral and Steph Bridge is still going on, with Steph being 2nd behind Gina Esteva, but before Kristin Boese and Angela Peral.
Stay tuned for more!
