Yep, Easter is almost upon us and this time next week the Puravidaboardriders Easter Windsurf Clinic will be underway over here! There are still two places left in the luxury villa so if anyone fancies a full week of sunshine and wind, get in touch with Jim at http://www.puravidaboardriders.co.uk/ and he´ll sort you right out. It´s gonna be great- we´ve got a great bunch of folk booked in and the forecast looks awesome already. Add to that two BBQ nights and two restaurant nights, photoshoots, video analysis and tution both here in the north and in the lagoon down south (Wed, Thur, Friday), can´t wait!!!! In the meantime, the wind just keeps on blowing over here. The swell has been a bit on the small side, which is a shame as this past week has been the Fuerte Wave Classic and conditions have not really allowed any sort of competition as they were looking for big waves. While the competitors were struggling with the shoredump at Cotillo Beach, I had a couple of good blasts at Punta (really they should have held the comp there as it was the best spot by far but decided to take the whole circus to Cotillo instead), and got some pretty nice pics of the action. Check em out...
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?
