Fuerteventura: PWA Vice World Champion 2017

 

With the whole winter being out of the water because of my injury, it knew that my goals from last year's comments on my Fuerteventura 2016 blog (to learn a few new moves or get some power moves that I can already do more consistent, like the culo, ponch, shove-it spock, burner and toad) were not in my reach. After finishing my High-school exams in May I was lucky that we had good conditions in Holland and I could do …

Injury update

During the Dam-X event last October I’ve unfortunately injured myself trying a kabikuchi. I went to the hospital, got an X-ray done but it all seemed fine. So for the next few days I walked on crutches until the pain faded away. It was still pretty painful so I went to a physiotherapist, did 2 months of training to get it all fixed. There was quite some progress at first, but at some point it just stopped. The pain was …

EFPT Brouwersdam 2016

 

This year my sponsor Zeil- en surfcenter Brouwersdam was organising the EFPT again. The first competion day I managed to land most of my tricks like the sliding moves funnells, flakas on both tacks, e-slider and the powermoves Switch Kono,  regular Kono, and Shaka's on both tacks. I ended up with a 2nd place in the first single. The double elimination started the same day. I sailed again a good heat, but at the end I lost the heat for …

ONK Wave 2016: Dutch women’s Wave champion

 

I'm glad that the first possible weekend provided good conditions for the ONK Wave in Zandvoort. It was a cold day, but we had a nice competition. I ended this first stop of the ONK Wave on the 1st place. All of the next weekends in the waiting period did not provide good competion conditions for the Dutch Nationals Wave, but that makes me the 2016 Dutch women's wave champion!  Pretty stoked about that!

Vice World Champion PWA Fuerteventura 2016

 

After 5 competition days on the windy island of Fuerteventura we’ve completed a double and second single elimination for the girls! During the first three days of the event the wind was firing, everybody was overpowered on their smallest kit. I’ve mostly used my 3,6 and 4,0 Freek’s together with my Flare 93. The days after there was Calima, which resulted in a lot less wind, we’ve tried a few times to start the second double but the conditions were …

Preparing for competition PWA Fuerteventura 2016

Fuerteventura With it being the beginning of June, I was starting to get really nervous. The wind had been really bad this year and I had to put lots of time in schoolwork, so a lot of training was not quite possible. I had my hopes up that it was going to be windy at home and I could step up my level, but unfortunately it was far from windy. I searched for hours to find a windy place in …

EFPT Brouwersdam 2015

The first EFPT womens competition took place at my homespot Brouwersdam. I sailed my best heat ever in the final of the European Freestyle Pro tour against the queen of freestyle Sarah Quita Offringa ARU91 yesterday! Quote from EFPT report: “Huvermann was putting together a great heat with flakas and shakas both sides as well as regular konos, funnells and punetas. It was a very close decision between the routined sailor from Aruba and the young talented Dutch freestyler, however …

PWA slalom Alacati

After my 3rd place during the PWA Freestyle in Fuerteventura I wasn’t quite sure what to do with the last 3 weeks of my summer holiday. I couldn’t quite find a place suitable for freestyle in which in it would be windy, could stay alone and wouldn’t need a car. As I heard some of the freestyle girls were going to Alacati to compete in the PWA Slalom, I though why not give it a try as well. It turned …

PWA Fuerteventura 2015

 The first day of the PWA Freestyle Fuerteventura World Cup saw extreme conditions, with wind speed up to 40 knots and extremely choppy waters, everybody had to push their limits to the fullest. I was using my Severne Freek 3,6 and SWAT 3,3, together with my Starboard flare 81. I was happy to show consistent heats landing spocks, grubby, flaka’s, shaka’s, loops and more. After loosing the semi-final against an amazing sailing Sarah-Quita I was happy to win the losers …

Blog winter

Over the winter I have been training as much as possible to up my freestyle level. During the periods at home, I unfortunately didn’t have a lot of wind and had to focus on school. Luckily I had some good wind during the first week of the christmas holiday at Brouwersdam. As there was no more wind in the forecast for Brouwersdam any more and a lot of wind predicted in Leucate, we drove there to have some good days …
