After couple of difficult months where instead of hard time in gym I was struggeling with multiple cold the windsurfing God sent me present. December sailing in my country. Never did it before. First was on 19th of December when I decided after 2 years of waiting hit the the river Vltava in Prague center. Called my very good friend and photographer Jiri Pisa and we tried. Spent there over 3 hours and most of the time waiting for the right gusts but in the end I had couple rides so I was pretty happy. Mission accomplished! I proofed that City sailing in Prague is possible. Next session was 3 days later at secret spot near my home town. This one was more radical because it was only 5C and the water had like 3C. I tried a bit of speed sailing because it was super flat but in the end no decent speed just a few jibes and ” speed runs”. Didn’t sail long but definitely enough. I was pretty happy again.
Unfortunately I paid the price just on the Christmas Eve when I had to lay down with proper flu. Spent there one week. Bit ruined Christmas but it defintely worth it. Now I have a few more weeks for the gym prep and then finally to Tarifa for few months.
