As promised, here´s the short video I took of the boys´forward clinic at the weekend. I love doing forward loop classes, great fun! To be fair, the boys had all done it with me before last year- this time they wanted to finish the job properly. Rupert (Naish sail) wanted to change his rotation to be able to go higher and start stalling them, Dale (green sail) who is 62! wanted to stop doing cheese rolls and do forward rotations, and Phil(yellow sail) just wanted to land a forward! Check it out and decide for yourself if they did or not. One thing the video demonstrates is the level of commitment you need to learn this not-so-difficult move- this was just the first 50 minutes or so and they carried on throwing one on every run for a couple of hours after. That´s how you learn ´em...
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?
