The lake Neusiedler, my homespot, is covered with a thick layer of ice in the moment. We had a terrible week with temperatures in between -5° and -15°. That was too much. The conditions for icesailing, or icesurfing were quite good. Two days ago the weather changed completely and we got warm air from the south, perhaps from the Sahara. The temperatures are in between 5° and 10° above zero. So the snow is away, but the ice layer is still covering the lake. Let´s see how long the relatively thick ice will stay compact.
In 2008 I had my last session on the 23rd of December. On the 24th the lake got the cover. This season it was extremely warm till the 11th of December, but afterwards windsurfing was almost impossible and the lake got frozen on the 17 th of December.
Anyway, there is still no chance to windsurf on water, but really hope that the next session will be possible soon.
Wish you all a merry x-mas and have a good time with your friends or family,
