Be Happy...........

Next up were Pablo and Carlos. Tired of blasting back and forth in their native Mallorca they basically wanted to learn anything that would open the door to the next level..........
We spent three days together and I put the boys through hell, haha, we sailed for 5 hours a session and both guys never stopped smiling for one second! They are two of the happiest, easy-going guys I have ever had the pleasure of sailing with- we spent a full session in Sotavento learning vulcans, and they both emerged after some pretty impressive crashes with big grins on their faces. the same at Punta on our last day when we did a forward loop clinic, smiles all round as they got to grips with a real serious manoeuvre! Fantastic!
Well, the good news is they are both well on their way now to the next level of sailing- forwards will be no problem now when they get some decent conditions back in Mallorca in autumn (brrrr, freezin, though) and they have taken their first steps towards freestyle moves with the vulcan. Well done guys. Wish I had a photo of Pablo´s forward loop from Saturday but hey..........

  1. Thanks for your comment, we really had much fun and looking forward sail with you next year. I´ll keep you update


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?
