As we enter February we look towards our next trips this spring, the next one being March 5th -12th in Fuerteventura, a great place for all levels of riders to work on their skills, learn new techniques and have a great week on the water with sunshine, good winds and flat shallow sailing areas. There is still space on the Getwindsurfing coaching week in Fuerte, so get in touch asap to book your ticket. Flights are still nice and cheap too so why not escape the cold and give your windsurfing a boost this spring!
For now, another great few weeks have passed out here in Bonaire, and some fantastic teaching weeks during this time. We have had two more group coaching weeks since I last wrote, and one week with some private tuition with Sally and Richard who you can see in some photos below. The group sessions were great fun and loads of improvement was seen all round, improved control whilst planing and getting in the straps, upwind 360's, downwind 360's, duck gybes and jumps. The week gave us plenty of time to work on skills and break them down in the lighter wind days, then some planing action at the end to try them at speed.
Sally and Richard both arrived looking to learn or improve planing skills and foostraps. By the end of the week Sally was hooked in and planing for the first times, meaning she then never wanted to come off the water, desperate to use the straps. Richard got to grips with smaller boards and getting smoother at those footstraps, as well as beginning the exhausting but rewarding mission to learn the waterstart! Bonaire is an amazing place to learn these skills and so these guys took our advice and came out here for a week...they left wishing they could change their flight and stay for a lot longer :)
