The wind hasn't really stopped blowing since my last post, the SUP is looking slightly forlorn in the garden as we head off to Punta and Majanicho every morning to get a couple of hours on the water before work. We're still shooting video so I have some frame-grabs to post up, although the light has been shitty so the quality is not so good- not sure if we'll be able to use the video footage for anything other than training purposes. It's been really useful to watch the footage, though, and my sailing has definitely improved as a result. We will be using video analysis a lot this year on my clinics for sure. The wind has dropped off today but should return tomorrow for some Majanicho action so the video camera is on charge...
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?
