After a pretty long no-wind period, the November ended pretty nice windsurfing-wise. In the meantime, it got way colder, Trump was voted as president-elect - which made it feel much colder - and people are still not stopping to act like crazy in every part of the world. I do not know what it`s wrong in some guys head. Anyway, I do not want to get too political on my blog. That would lead way too far.
This year this Sylt flew never really left me. Really...after feeling ok again and going back to the gym, I am right back coughing the next day. I feel like the guy in "Groundhog Day" this autumn. So, I am not surfing longer than 1-2h, because I do not want to get too cold. This year, I am so much looking forward to our Cape Town trip, since it is so cold already and I am really looking forward to have a great time with my best friends over there!
Mid of October we had some epic South-East wind, which brought us some nice waves at the Baltic Sea. Kaegnes was on fire and I really enjoyed jumping this day. Then, the wind shifted to East/North-East for some weeks, which is pretty uncommon for this time of the year. Normally, we have a lot of westernly storms in Northern Europe from October to December. But the climate change seems already to influence the wind systems.
