Brouwersdam, Netherlands - Last Session

Saturday, November 14, 2009; my last session at Brouwersdam, and likely my last session anywhere in Europe, before I move back across the pond to the USA.
Although rainy in the early a.m. the sky soon cleared up and 25-30 knot clearing winds blew in from the SSW. Even better was the rise in air temp with the appearance of the sun. By mid afternoon it was almost 60 degree F. which is amazing for this time of year at the beach in Holland. Even better was the fact that high tide was about 11:00 a.m. so you did not have to carry your board and rig near as far to get to the water.
It just turned out to be the perfect way to end a great three years of windsurfing over here on the Euro side of the pond. Although I am excited and anxious to return to my home breaks I will surely miss the many great sessions and spots here.

Meanwhile, over on the lake side there was a whole bunch of high wind, high speed blasting and freestyle going on!

Nice grassy rigging areas over on the lake side.
