Day 2 goes OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As forecast, the wind filled in on Sunday and the comp was a huge success!! Everyone was giving it 110% and the action was insane! I am working on the video right now and I have 1500 photos to sift through so for now you will have to content yourselves with these low-res frame grabs from my video camera. Full write-up, photos and video this week, watch this space..........................


  1. Well done Gibbo, you are DA MAN !
    Hope everyone bought you LOADS of beers for putting all this together.

    Full respect bro, you are the King of Punta.

  2. Funnily enough, no, not one beer has been forthcoming!!!!!


Welcome to the site!
Aswell as regular features and news updates from Fuerte, I am going to be using this site to promote my windsurfing clinics.
After 15 years on the island,having competed in the PWA freestyle world cup and now representing Fanatic Boards and North Sails, I have decided to give something back to the sport which has given me so much over the years.
My aim is to provide clinics "tailor-made"for each individual, with a strong emphasis on practical in-the-water instruction, backed up by on-the-beach tuition and video analysis. The consistent conditions here in Fuerte make learning so much easier and, perhaps equally important, more fun than the typically inconsistent, cold UK - why not come over for a week and improve your windsurfing by a year!!!

I can help with any manoeuvres from carve-gybe through to advanced jumping and freestyle, just email me with your wish list and we'll take it from there! Over the next few months, I am going to be video-chronicling manoeuvres which you can check out on the right in my tricktionary sections. This will give you some idea of the things we can work on, or, if you can't make it over here, you may find them useful to help understand and break down a manoeuvre you would like to learn (hopefully, the slow-mo will help in this respect!).Just click on the trick and scroll down..........
Anyway, keep checking it out as I have loads more in my bag of tricks and will be updating as and when I get the footage.
If you're interested, e-mail me on gibboinfuerte@yahoo.co.uk
See ya in Fuerte?
