How can a guy with so much free time be so busy? I don't know, once again I've left it a couple of weeks before finding time to post up the pictures of my first post-op clinic! (Cue rap on knuckles). Jim Patterson, a Kiwi ex-pat, now living in London but soon to return to his native home (and who can blame him?) came over for a week hoping to score a couple of half days with tuition and struck gold. We had a full 7 days of wind, two nice days at Flag, port tack with head high waves on the reefs, and four big days at Punta for starboard jumping and riding! He had a great week, obviously, and improved the rotation on his forwards during the last two sessions at Punta once he got fully dialled into the fairly extreme conditions. I did my tuition from the beach with the aid of my camera and video camera and it worked really well as I could show him the things he was doing well and things he needed to change during his sessions. All in all, a great week and a very happy customer! Enjoy your new kit (and the cold) back home Jim...
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?
