My summer season really kicks off tomorrow with the arrival of my first clinic, the boys from Ireland. The forecast is looking fantastic and they are in for some top coaching from myself and the legendary Oisin Van Gelderen. Looks like conditions will be perfect for this full-on wave clinic and I´m hoping to see some amazing results by the end of the week. Apparently it´s all about forwards, backloops, pushloops and goiters. Can´t wait! Keep an eye on the blog for pics, vids and updates. In the meantime, here´s some more photos from this incredible month down in Puerto Lajas https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151049075331894.489804.533171893&type=1&l=25bdb44c9c
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?
