This young man above has chosen to take the plunge and come out to visit here in the Canary Islands with us. He arrived several days ago, but we've been busy so I haven't had any time to hang pictures.... soon come!

cheers,
Surf Fuerteventura

The session he got the same day off the plane was at an inside point up north. It was small and not the best waves, buy suited us perfectly as a first contact just off the plane.

Below is 2 pictures of our session the following day...

I just got back from such an awesome trip out to Fuerterventura, I scored some great waves and was a welcome relief from the
grey English winter. I stayed with Pedro and his family at there wonderful home and was treated like a king.
Pedro's knowledge of the local area is second to none and I got to surf some great waves while I was there.
If anyone is planning to visit Fuert I can definitely Recommend Pedro's place to stay, its a beautiful Traditional house
with every thing you need including a well looked after garden with Pedro raids for the morning smoothie.
The surf on the north track is a 20 minuit drive away, and the surf on the west coat is about 10.
Pedros no commercial monkey and its all really informal and chilled set up.
If your thinking about visiting Fuert give pedro a shout sbb9@hotmail.es or surfbednbreakfast
