As I may have mentioned, when Simon Hobbs came over at xmas he came armed with every digital media device you can dream of (check out a couple of his photos above!), the aim being to make an all-time windsurf/lifestyle movie of the 2 weeks. Well, it didn´t exactly go to plan as we had loads of sailing but not much videoing (no-one wanted to stand filming when the conditions were so good). We missed most of the good action, so imagine my surprise when Hobbsy sent me this amazing edit! He has made a fantastic job of the movie and managed to capture a little bit of everything we got up to over the xmas period (still a pity we didn´t video the jumping at Punta...) in a cracker of a movie- even Caroline said she didn´t get bored watching it so it must be good! Anyway, check it out below, round of applause for the little welshman please...
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
See ya in Fuerte?
