Yeah, we've had a great couple of weeks over here with a perfect mix of wind and waves meaning I've been busting out the windsurf kit and the SUP in fairly equal measures. Last week we had five days of strong northeasterlies meaning some nice sessions at Punta in very large but messy waves. Check out the pictures. The last few days have been sunny and windless so it's been out with the paddleboard and down to Majanicho at first light to (futilely it turned out) attempt to beat the crowds. It's getting so busy there with surfers and SUPers that it's a bit dangerous when it gets big. I caught some nice waves but I think it's time for me to head to some more secret spots now for the rest of the winter before I lose an eye or something....
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?
