Hallo everyone ,

Last sunday i was by Obbe and Ina. I have this year by Thomas a new B39.
3 years before was my first ride with an retro that was the time that the foiling virus hit me.
Obbe and Ina have adjust the b39 for me.
After the adjusting has the b39 more lift . and riding with it is a lot better.
I am very happy with the b 39 it is not comparable with the retro.
After the kaffee we made a ride with the foiltech it was a very smoot ride
and a lot of pop up riding on an foiltech is an great experience.
It was an beatiful day and a lot of fun ;D ;D ;D

Hiiiiiiyaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! with a big big :D !
That is how I felt today.

Hello to everybody on this forum, I'm Robert and since I've been reading the forum for almost 2 years now and now Obbe posted pictures of me and my yellow drysuit I thought it might be time to introduce myself,

I've been riding on a retro :ja: for 13!!!! years allready, last year I bought a SS Pro....suddenly things changed because riding that old purple and black was nice but flying on a pro.....big big difference!!!!...jumps got a lot higher and working on techniques became a lot more fun...so...reading this forum and the foilfreaks forum and the yahoo forum and the Ozeflyinn forum (about every day) I learnt a lot and saw all te changes in wings Tbars, Towers....so wanting to learn and enjoy our sport as much as possible I decided to buy The Ferrari of Foils...
:D (..oh let me enjoy this moment...it feels so good!!!!!!) :D
The full 2007 Foiltech setup.

Garry tested it this weekend and if all is according to plan, I will be on it in about 4 or 5 days!.....hiiiyaaaah!!!!! :D :D :D

Like Obbe wrote, I was invited on their new setup today....it is brilliant!!!!
What a smooth ride...when you are on a setup like that it improves your skills, this thing cuts like a Ferrari, skidds like a dream, jumps smooth and easy and it makes you wanna make a skidder right after you land, and suddenly when you dip and pop in the flats you got 1.5meter of air under you wings...yep...that is what I call a controlable flight
I had a perfect time!!
BIG HUG to you Obbe & Ina.

Congratulations with opening the Dutch season and so many good impressions! We still have snow at nights so not too eager to rush the things, a few more weeks of waiting. Good to see new foilers joining the group! Getting together to ride with more experienced girls (and guys) can teach you more in a week-end than riding alone several seasons, not exaggerating! And foil quality - I guess Obbe you haven't seen and don't remember YOUR face expression on the first wake jump a few years ago when Tom gave you the LEX instead of your so much loved AC ! :D :D :D
