The wind has kept on blowing here, been sailing every single day for as long as I can remember now! We've been mainly sailing at Punta and it's been generally pretty good although the swell has been a bit on the large side so it's been mostly messy whitewater sailing. Yesterday morning was perfect though, we caught the tide just right and had a wicked jumping session. My hip feels great and I'm starting to feel more comfortable jumping now- did my first push loops a few days ago, pretty high, and also started relearning one-handed forwards and back loops! Another great piece of news is that Lucy landed her first ever dry forward a couple of days ago so she is ecstatic! Her sailing is improving daily and she's looking forward to kicking some serious ass at the upcoming UK comps (check out her GoPro pics below)! All good...
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?
