Hardcore test session today. Totally stacked on 5.2 slalom. Testing some rake angles with @fhotfins as well as the new sails. I had a peak of 41kts so everything was working well.

Weird weather in canaries at the moment, but perfect to bust out the foil. Playing around with some different freeride foil sail concepts. —————————-

After 2 weeks of slalom competition and lots of testing I can’t wait for a bit of wave action. Forecast is looking good.... 📷 @jpinaciber_99

#pwa #fuerteventura2018 is over. Finished 32nd. I wanted a bit more racing than the 4 eliminations as I need a bit of time to find the rhythm, but not too bad. Always fun in #fuerte whatever. —————————-

Almost got to my heat today, but they literally stuck the postpone flag up on the 2 min flag of my start. 7.8 and medium board. Found some good speed today but couldn’t put it into practice. Hopefully tomorrow will give us 1 more round. —————————-

Pretty poor day today at the @pwaworldtour #fuerteventura2018 Results we’re not terrible, but more than anything I just felt really off the pace. Light (for fuerte), flat and gusty have never been my favourite conditions but still felt I should have been better. Played around in the afternoon to tune it up a bit better so let’s see tomorrow. —————————-

Probably the worst gybe shot ever. I was so overpowered in a couple of heats. Thanks 📷 @jcwindsurf Made it through to quarter finals in each elimination today at the #pwa #fuerteventura2018 but hit a bit of a wall after that. More of the same tomorrow, see if I can make it one or two heats more.

Can’t wait for the wind to drop again! Best way to guarantee a windy summer. Get a light wind alternative! 🎥 @windsurfingtv

#horrific catapult today preparing for the #pwa #fuerteventura2018 mind drifted off somewhere for a milli second and next thing I knew was my head being slammed into the mast and nearly lost consciences. #necklikerobocop for a few days! #needtovisitdaida

Quick trip to #fuerte. Scored el burro /#glassbeach straight off the ferry. No photo but it was a bit like this, but actually not at all like this!! Such a contrast to sail float and ride on a 5.3. 📷 @furaphotography from last weeks south swell. —————————-
