This event was pretty nice even if it was not perfect speed conditions for high speed it was fun!

Dunkerberk was there and won the event after a good fight.I finish vice french champion, i am pretty happy about this!
My tabou manta 49 was working good with my gaastra vapor, i was really easy with my gear on each runs. Now the season is over after more than 15 events.

It was a long year with some good results and some disapoitements but i learned a lot!

Now i am not really in vacation, i am still testing a lot of boards for tabou (actually new pockets and Da curve and also Rocket 135,115 and 105) even if the cold winter is just arrived…

Finally some wind during a real speed events! The last 3 years during official competition my goal was more to look for real planning during the 500 meters of a run than for doing it at full speed.

But in PSL, south of France, it was an other storie…The wind was blowing to 60 knots on the morning, I was looking for an old 4,5 in emergency but finaly during the race the wind was 35 knost max so it was perfect for my vapor 5,5 and manta 49.
It was a few square and on the pics it look terrible with the chop but in really it was ok and you can play with these small wave to have better speed.

I am pretty happy about my results with the best speed so far to the event and second place overall! The forecast for saturday look promissing, with maybie sail around 6 meters on side on shore wave! perfect for real action! let see what will happen…

Encore une tres bonne édition de cette longue distance qui au fil des années et devenue une classique.

Nous avons fait 3 manches sur le plat dans 25 noeuds et une manche d’antologie le lendemain par Sud/Ouest (orientation rare) ou le vent est passé de 15 à 30 knots lors de la procédure de départ! Ce fut une vraie manche d’homme, j’étais en 7,6 et avec un proto manta 75 qui glissait plus que bien! il faut que je le teste maintenant dans du vent plus raisonable en 8,4 et 44 d’aileron! Je finis 3 eme ce qui est ok vu la qualité du plateau présent!

Maintenant je vais peut etre participer au national vague à Sixfours dans quelques jours avant d’enchainer sur les championnats de france de vitesse à psl.
