It certainly does feel like summer has truly arrived with the first true strong northerlies and great conditions at Glass for the last few days. The waves were good for the first couple of days, although not particularly big, but they have dwindled to nothing now so I'm looking forward to the wind turning NE tomorrow and heading back to Punta for some starboard. On the downside, crowding was an issue which is a bad sign this early in the season and it also seems that Glass Beach has become an en vogue k***surfing spot- I counted 38 windsurfers and 10 kites out on Friday while I was videoing Lucy. When it gets that busy I just grab my freestyle board and go jumping on the point and let the masses fight with each other (see previous post). Here are a few pics from the wave session before it got mega-crowded...
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?
