To end the summer well and get ready for a full year of heavy-duty studying I decided to head out for a week of playboating somewhere in Europe. A few phonecalls and a skypemeeting later it was decided, Bretagne. The surf there had to be amazing according to surfwebsites, so France it was. Another phonecall later the group was downsized to 2 instead of 5. So Bas Horstink and me decided to hit Plattling for a week of sun and playboating. Bas has been a very solid boater for years in the Dutch scene but had broken his back two years ago. He was now fully recovered and joined me for his first full week of playboating since then. I am super happy he is back in the scene, being a very good friend and travel buddy alike!

So we spent our days boating, eating, sunbading and 12 hours of sleep every day. Plattling is one of the rare places you just can't stop paddling at when you're there. Big loops, Space Godzilla's and McNasty's (which Bas was throwing all the time), it's all huge and just so much fun. The Bar 'Stern' is where you spent your nights, cheap food and german beers await you after a full day of boating. All in all a very relaxed trip with lots of boatingtime done. Can't wait for next years World Champs here, hope I make the team.
