Rocky Point rainbows (video)

On Saturday the wind reappeared and the remnants of the huge storm swell were still just about coming in to Rocky Point. It was blustery with the occasional torrential downpour, which made rigging not so much fun, but it was pure bliss once I got in the water. Perfectly powered on 5.0 (except in the squalls) with head high waves peeling downwind along the reef it was fantastic for both riding and jumping and we all had an absolute ball. It was a bit like being back in the UK but loads warmer :) .To cap it all off we sailed under a beautiful rainbow for about half an hour after a front pushed through - Maui eat your heart out, haha. Anyway, I'd stuck the (borrowed, thanks Basti) GoPro on my mast to try and get some pics and ended up with the following footage which I edited together with my new van music...

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?
