LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After months of waiting for the right forecast, it's finally on- the Punta Blanca "Get High Or Die" Wave Comp will take place this weekend at Punta Blanca on the northshore!
30 local sailors will fight it out on Saturday for the King of Punta title with man-on-man eliminations judged by the riders themselves to encourage a handicap-system whereby each rider will be judged according to how he or she pushes their own personal limits. On Sunday I will be running a super session with trophies for the most impressive jump, the most extreme wipeout/bail and one for the biggest chicken-out. Gonna be total carnage.
Sunday night will be an end of comp party in the U-Turn in Lajares with prizegiving and BBQ. Watch this space for photos, updates and, of course, THE video........................

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
See ya in Fuerte?
