Roeland at Lake Garda
Some pics of Roeland at the Swiss Open, where he finished 2nd overall. Unfortunately no pics of Chris, the new Swiss Champ on his DNA.
In the first pic you can see Roeland doing the wildthing in a position where normally te rearbeam would be.
The nose up wildthing is typically for a high volume curved foils A-cat.
The second pic shows Roeland in some serious breeze. He could maintain such high speeds upwind due to the great longitudinal stability both caused by the sharp nose which cuts the waves and the low rocker flat bottom.
