Summer catch-up

It's been a long summer but a good one for sailing and teaching. Unfortunately I haven't kept my blog very up to date (to be honest most of my stuff gets put up on my facebook page these days as it's easier  and it doesn't diminish the video quality like on this page ). Over the next couple of days I will try to catch up as much as possible with the main events of my summer sessions, both freesailing and training.

In July, my good friend Oisin was back in town and he was kind enough to kit me out with a K4 harness mount to try. After a couple of mishaps as I was getting used to it I eventually managed to get a couple of clips- I still need to sort out the camera angle slightly but the footage is quite unique. Here are a couple of clips from that day. First up are a couple of shakas...
And next, a big back loop on my freestyle board!!!
Happy days. I have more pics and photos on my pc which I will put up in the next couple of days. Now, I'm off to Punta as it would appear that summer has not yet breathed its last breath ;)

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?
