Jump n bump (Video).

It's been a hectic few weeks for me with visitors and it looks set to continue with friends, family and fellow windsurfers arriving all at the same time this weekend. Nevertheless I've still been getting some sailing in, mostly at Flag Beach funnily enough, a place I normally avoid nowadays because of the k**e plague. It's a shame really as I enjoy sailing at Flag when it's good and I spent many, many days there as a relative newcomer to the island 17 years ago when my old Seat Ibiza couldn't get through the sand to Punta and left me with no choice except to sail at Flag. This week we had some great sessions there and there weren't too many k***s, some of them even stayed in their area which was nice. Lucy is finally getting some smoothly rotated forwards (Punta next) which is well-timed just before the competitions in May and I shot a bit of GoPro footage on the last day... check it out at the bottom of the post.

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
See ya in Fuerte?
