As I may have mentioned in my last post, I managed to squeeze in a couple of nice sessions at Punta over my Xmas holiday in between all the amazing down-the-line days so was back to training takas, among other things. On this day the wind was a touch on the light side so I took my Skate 101 and had a great little sail. Here are a few GoPro shots and a bit of video from the session...

Yep, definitely the best one I can remember anyway. I was off work for three weeks and sailed every day except three, and mainly in firing starboard tack down-the-line Majanicho or Martillo, with a couple of fun days at Punta thrown into the mix for good measure. As most people settled down on their comfy sofás in overheated living romos across the UK we were out in amazing conditions, in fact as the Queen delivered her Christmas speech I was probably bottom turning on a mast-high bomb at Martillo (or swimming around looking for my kit).
I won´t bang on for eternity about the sailing (the sessions have all become a bit of a happy, hazy blur anyway) but I´ll leave you with a few choice pics and a short GoPro edit I put together which gives absolutely zero perspective of the size and quality of the waves we rode over this amazing festive period.
Happy New Year indeed!
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?
