Clinical forwards.

OK, so we ran the forward loop clinic the other day and, as promised, I videoed some of the action from the beach (the first hour before I had to get in the water and help out a bit). Very successful forward clinic, it has to be said. I´ll edit the bits of vid this evening and hopefully post it up tomorrow. In the meantime, here´s a couple of pics from the same day...

During the clinic, we filmed this horrific attempt at a cheese roll by Dale and when we looked at the footage in slow-mo, we decided it was almost a totally new move so I made a short (piss-take) clip to unveil it to the masses. It´s been named the Panda, after the boys´ ridiculously inadequate hire car. Prepare to be amused (bear in mind that Dale is 62 this year. Respect!)...

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?
