Not much to report of late unfortunately. We have been becalmed for the past 8 weeks now over here, nothing at all! To be honest, it came at the perfect time, after a long summer of relentless wind and much adventure! I was also waiting for my 2013 kit to arrive, which it has now, so the calm period has been a welcome break giving me time to relax, SUP and organise my life before it all starts again.
My new kit is now in my van, ready to go and I´m chomping at the bit to get it on the water. In particular, the 87 quad as I have never had a quad before, always going with the Twin previously, and am looking forward to see how it goes this winter. I tried a fellow teamrider´s at Puerto Lajas last June and was very impressed. Given that between now and March we´ll get a lot of classic down the line days, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give it a whirl so I´ll keep you posted.
Anyway, it´s glassy again today with a big swell so I´m off on my SUP, gotta keep busy, hard life...
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?
