Dutch wave rider Martin ten Hoeve aka Lampi travelled with his girlfriend to Denmark and got nice waves. He used a 116 liter big wave board for that session. Lampi is a tall guy with 202 cm but his riding on the big board looks really smooth.

Martin ten Hoeve: “Me and my girlfriend made this short quick video in June 2016 in the last hour of daylight. The wind and waves only kicked in during the last hour of daylight.” 

Lampi will compete in the first PWA wave event in Gran Canaria, but has to qualify through the trials. He is a bit disappointed as he was ranked 24th in 2015 and finally managed to recover from a injury. 

“I’m not sure what happened here. I thought that rank 24th would be enough to get a wild card and that’s why I didn’t try to get an injury wild card. I hurt my foot during the warming up before the heats in Denmark last year, and I have been struggling with that ever since. I have put a lot of training into it during the winter and I now finally feel on the other side of the injury. When I got my injury, my stubborn mind told me that I was ready for France, even though I was not, and I more or less suffered all winter from that injury. Decision has been made they say, so bad luck..”

We wish Lampi the best of luck for the trials at the Gran Canaria Wind & Wave Festival 2016!
