Fancy some warm water????

If you fancy getting away from it all (with or without the family), I am once again running my hugely successful Easter Clinic in conjunction with Puravida from March 31st 2012. The last two trips have been awesome and places are limited, so if you are interested I suggest you get in touch with Jim at http://www.puravidaboardriders.co.uk/ asap. You can see reports on the previous clinics in older posts in this here blog of mine. In the meantime, check out the promo vid- the windsurfing part was shot a few days ago at Punta. Shorts in November- this could be you at Easter!!!!!

A Little Bit Of Action...

Don´t confuse my lack of posting for a lack of activity, I´ve been pretty busy this last while. Had a couple of guys over for tuition and been full-on SUP and windsurfing inbetween. This past week has been windy, although I must admit the forecast has failed to deliver every day and I have been on my 99 Skate and 5.3 at Punta in pretty big waves and lightish winds. Nevertheless, we got a couple of photos, and with wind forecast for the next couple of days I´m
still hoping to get some better ones....

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?
