...exhausting days under palmtrees...

While most parts of Europe was suffering and hiding to storm Xaver, well, actually i followed social media and could see that hundreds were still out in freezing cold conditions, respect !!  I had some super nice Mountain Bike rides, through the desert trail, very technical plus the Killer Mountain uphill training and some longer routes, over Margarita´s Mountains, through the cactus fields and along the caribbean coatline..  and now that we got wind and waves back i am getting kind of sour... MTB SUP and Windsurf yesterday..  great SUP Session this morning at Sunrise and most probably another one in the afternoon if the wind doesn´t get stronger and makes me go on my Fanatic Freewave again... It´s been exhausting days and it will be much more exhausting the next days with wind and waves still increasing....

MTB Fever....

It was about time.. about time for me to finally get on a Bike also here at Isla Margarita...  something i do almost on daily bases in Germany and never ever did over here...  well, i came here to Windsurf - Surf and SUP (even some Kite, but don´t tell anybody ;-) )  and i always skipped the idea to follow the El Yaque Bikers...  but this year is different...  I had much less time on wheels in Germany and kind of missed it so decided to get a Mountainbike and follow Al and Nora (and the whole group) every other day and i have been really suprised so far...  very technical, narrow and nice tracks plus the "Killer Mountain" where i have been taken fotos of in the past years...  Well, i can tell you it is very hard to get up that hill..  loose ground, sand, very narrow tracks...  and kind of steep...  but, i´ll get there...  will train hard for it...  today i wanted to see the other five Killer Mountains but had zero power in my legs today and had to walk down the first very difficult Downhill track...  I´ll be back here in better shape !!!!!!

 

Well, one day rest and we go again...  got training for the predicted wind and waves at the weekend and the upcoming week...  sweet....

... Rainbow Sailing...

It has been one of those days...  Windforecast tells you there will be no wind or light wind if ....  So, day to go for the shopping we were talking about for days or weeks...  Porlamara City was calling...  after visiting two, three Shops we receive a little message...  where are you ?? IT´s´windy down here...  ok.. little Uturn and heading back to El Yaque...  stucked in traffic but still made it pretty quick, prepare the gear, load the car...  double check if everything is there....  GO...  Car in El Yaque ??  well, for a little session at Punta Canero, like a ten minutes drive away, with a bit more Ramps and Waves...  arrive..  rigg up quickly...  and ready to go out...  but wait...  something is missing..  can´t believe we lost routine of packing that quick...  no harnesses in the car...  formula 1 drive back home and on the water 20 minutes later....  we couldn´t tell how long it would last, huge clouds were already builing up to massive black towers and we could see the hard rain over the main part of the Island already...  but at least we got some time, with the wind a little light but ok before also we got hit by the storm...  pressure in teh sail for like 10 minutes just before the rain and ....  the RAinbow...  always nice to sail below the rainbow....  it´s been a good day in the end....  got some shopping and some windsurfing  today...  now it looks like some SUP Sessions in the next days...

riding new toys....

It´s been a month now that i came back to the Caribbean, for another sunny winter underpalmtrees and i already got the chance to take my new Fanatic Toys onto the water...  Windsurfig wise i used my Freewave TE with single fin setup so far while getting my SUP Pro Wave 8,5 a little more onto the water, thruster setup for some tighter turns on the mini waves we got so far...  still waiting for some bigger swells to hit our Island...

Busy summer is over... almost

My european seems to be over ... soon.. as i still got a few things to do before leaving for the Caribbean in the winter again. It has been a great time, nice months, windy days and sessions on the water, some nice waves in Morocco, meeting great people and see very nice places. It has also been busy with many Clinics at many different places, Worldcups and more travels for some travel reports and Pictures....  in the end i am tired but looking back to a really nice time and some nice journeys again....  now back to cristal clear waters in the water to recharge batteries, get some nice SUP Sessions and than even more Windsurf before our next Clinic Tour starts all over again....  thanx to all who have been part of my summer and i hope to see you again one day (or two ;-)  )

.. holland was calling...

Not long ago i left the canary island towards northern europe, germany first, to organize the rest of my summer before leaving again for another caribbean winter, but after a month on Fuerteventura with very little sailing due to the conditions which really didn´t fit into my preferences, i got a little nervous, checking forecasts over and over again. only heat, no wind or waves in sight...  well, until last week...  the forecast didn´t look great but ok for the dutch coastline, some southwest to west winds, hopefully good enough to test my new gear...  and anyway it´s nice to be on the road again, on the road to my former "homespots" around brouwersdam and ouddorp in southern netherlands....  once arrived there was...  no wind !!!  so visiting some friends first and it´s been really nice to see Arjen from Windsurfing Renesse and Adelimar again !!!  In the late afternoon the wind kicked in for a little session on my new Fanatic Freewave TE 96 and the new Norh IDOL 5,6...  not great but ok....  next day.. zero...  day three..  zero but at least some little waves at ouddorp to get on my new Fanatic Pro Wave 8,5 SUP...  at the end it´s been a nice little trip but i hope the conditions will be much better for the Worldcup at this place between September 08th and 14th...

weather changes

What´s up with the global weather...  ? Whereever we go we can hear the stories, see the changes, the windbelts around the globe have shifted ??  the local weather effects are increasing ??  fact is that wind and weather have been kind of weird just everywhere. Morocco has been much much greener, cooler and more wet than i´ve ever seen it before....  the canaries got heat by one Calima after the other..  meaning lots of heat and no wind or very strange and gusty winds plus there were almost no waves for a loong time... back in germany it´s 38 degrees...  well at least a few days just before it drops to 15 and at night it´s been only 11 to 13 anyway...  i hope that´s just a phenomenom that won´t hold for too long and next year will be more back to normal...  or we go start chasing some new spots...  if the windsystems have shifted there must be loots of new Windsurf and Surf Spots around the globe...  interesting....  Our next Stopp is Greece...  also from there we hear that weather is different, but it´s wiindyy !!!!!

long year and tons to write about

Oh yes, it has been a very long whie now that i haven´t touch my new article button on my Blog page...  sorry for that but it´s been pretty busy times and now i´ll be back here, telling you about life, our Windsurf Camps, Worldcups and much more.....

 

After leaving El Yaque / Venezuela in April i went almost straight to our next Wave Special in Moulay / Morocco, another really great one with five days of wind and six out of six in waves...  it´s just always great to be back at this magic place...  by the way, we will have another edition of Wave Special Moulay coming up in September.....   Moulay Galery

 

After Morocco next Stopp has been Lanzarote...  back to my new second home.. or third...  ??  it is always nice to be back there, see all the friends and super nice people around and enjoythe playground of Los Charcos and Las Cucharas and of course we had to awsome Windsurf Camps at the FBC Lanzarote, Windsurf Club Las Cucharas, once again as well...  seems as we knew how and why to choose our Spots for the clinics....  two weeks with very nice and not too hard conditions and lots of very international and great people around...  thanx to all for making those two weeks very special for us !!!  Camps Galery      Lanzarote Pics

 

Worldcup Fuerteventura was next...  this time Freestyle only and as it happened in the past years...  windy windy windy in the training weeks before the contest and than right for the worldcup...  which was held on the highest tides of the month once again, the wind played games, became even gustier than normal and everybody needed quite some luck added to the very high personal skills to advance and get a good result......  well, it all worked out pretty well...  Fuerte Pics

 

And than last but not least the sad story of the summer, which hit us pretty hard... our friend for many many years and colleague Andre Paskowski lost his fight with cancer after three years...  we feel with his family and girlfriend !!!! R.I.P. Andre !!

Delayed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

It´s already 2013 ....  somehow it all almost went too fast ....  couldn´t believe how quick we have been in the middle of all that christmas celebrations, fireworks, parties....  the time flew by ultimately....  

An here i am writing my first post in 2013.....  with my arm a little tired as every single day in 2013 has been windy so far...  and the wind is just increasing all the time plus we have had some awsome SUP Sessions before new years eve in the north west of the Island...  clean glassy well over head high waves rolling in ...  amazing.....

now i´m back on my Windsurfer every day, filming for some tuiton clips and enjoying the time on the water....  even if some more waves or ramps would make it more fun but anyhow i don´t complain.....  just cross fingers that this season will go on like that.....

Tobago here i am....

Tobago here i am...  yes, indeed, i made it ...  it has been a short trip regarding time in the air but in the end not that short considering all the hours waiting at Porlamar and Trinidad Airport, Customs procedures etc...  but still I enjoyed the flights, especially the one from Porlamar to Trinidad along the venezuelan coastline, how many huge and beautiful beaches are there !!!!  that was just amazing....  Arriving at Trinidad Airport i was surprised about the size and organisation of that Airport, I say this is the biggest, cleanest and best organized caribbean Airport I´ve been too...  Another little hop and there i was at Tobago, next little surprise, they drive at the other side of the road....  !!!! well, not for you my british friends....  ;-)

plus the Transfer time was the shortest ever...  luckily there is no big Airtraffic over here as the Airport is maybe five walking minutes away....

 

Today i went to check the village and the beach at Pigeon Point in the natural park...  I can tell that once you entered the park you are in a totally different world...  how beautiful is that over here....  100 % pure caribbean feeling......  Not to bad to run our Windsurf Camp right here for the next 6 days, could have been worse...  I will tell you more about it in the next days....  so far enjoy the images.....  ;-)

Back to caribbean life...

It´s been a bit more than a week now that i left rainy and cold Germany towards the caribbean, for another winter at my new home, well new home for quite some years already. Back in the sun, under palmtrees and the beach only few meters away...  especially the sun part hasn´t been that normal in the past two years as it has been raining more than we all wished ....  this year it seems as normal weather would be back, two little rainshowers at night since i´m back here...  which also means lots of garden work.. spending hours watering all plants and grass....  checking the wind every now and than and finally yesterday i managed to get back on my windsurfboards for the first freesailing session in almost 4 (!!!) months...  It all felt ok, only that I would have wished a bit more watermovement, but there is and was no swell at all so far....  so i´m still crossing fingers that we might get some nice sets rolling in in the near future to get my little surf and SUP boards on the water as well ...

Life is changing at my little home village, no international tourists but more and more venezuelans at the beach even during the week....  and quite some hotels and Posadas have changed owners, if for good or bad we will see in the near future, as we all don´t know if the new ones also support our watersports, which actually should be the fact, as this village started to exist only because of the wind and the most succesful venezuelan sportmen ever.....  where else you got 9 worldchampion titles at one place ????   well, it´s all gonna be good and going the right way i´m sure ....  i´ll keep you updated.....

The need to travel....

Time has come, packed my bags again, after not doing it for a month...  which felt pretty strange after living out of those bags the entire summer. Resting at my family´s home has been nice but also weird as I felt nervous all the time, nervous about sitting at home , inside, with bad weather outside, which actually can be qute relaxing for two three days but once it starts to force you stay inside, make you freeze while you´re running or sitting on your Mountainbike you would possibly also try to find something better....  well, i knew the better would come pretty soon, but still i am vey happy that he time has come and i´m almost at the airport again...  only few flights away from being back at my second home....  The Island is calling....  I am really looking forward to my fist session on the water, don´t care if Windsurf, Surf or SUP....  crossing fingers for some conditions....  

So I´ll say goodbye to my german friends and I´ll kepp you updated here at my blog, my fotosite and of course at www.elyaquenews.com

german autumn colours

After a long summer in the sun, travelling all over Europe and to some of the most amazing Windsurfing Spots in this world i now have some time to rest and spend with family in germany. Most people are disappointed by the autun weather and just too much rain - well, it is kind of crazy, for quite some days it´s been rainy and just grey and dark also at daytime, but at least now sun is shining with temperatures above 20 degrees celsius, at least until the second half of this week, when even snow is forecast, pretty much up and down, but i like those changes as during the rest of the year I won´t have those extreme weathers......

And I finally made it again to one of the DEL hockey games and could see some old friends on the Ice, very nice and what a coincidence....  liked it a lot and hopefully make it to another game before returning into the sun.....  

meanwhile i keep on taking pictures in germany which you can see also in my most recent shot galery.....  hope you´ll like them

Greece - back to the future ??

Many times i have travelled to Greece in my life, mostly really enjoyed my stays in the beautiful southern european countries, the land of gods and goddesses....  but after some weird experiences and witnessing the crisis in the country a bit too much in 2011 i felt a bit nervous, well, curious, this time before heading towards Kos and Samos....  Especially when watching german television showing thousands of greeks treating germans as bad as one could imagine but hardly believe...  and remembering that in the past year it has been like that indeed.. so i wanted to see how it woud be this year...  especially the fact that we will live day after day with those greeks who really can´t and couldn´t do anything about the crisis which made life very very hard and for some almost impossible in their own country, the country where they like to stay, to live and to work hard, as their fathers and grandfathers did and most probably their kids will do as well.....  well, now i am back for a good week...  and...  i was very suprised, positively surprised...  whereever we went, whatever we did, we were surrounded by super friendly and motivated greek people, the smiles were back o their faces and they really understood their situation and despite all political problems they decided to fight and work for a better life, to survive and make their country stronger again...  and i can understand their frustration in the past year when you see that all your efforts are for nothing, politics don´t change and you get forced to work even more while you are already way over your limits....  Of course we could still see the crisis, shops and cafe´s closed, restaurants and hotels pretty empty but i was happy to be back here and next year i won´t be nervous at all but happily looking forward to it instead....

Trip through Greece

Back from Greece - two Camps - two Islands with Kos and Samos....  two very nice weeks surrounded by great people and enjoying greek atmosphere and for the first time the beauty of Samos....  with a little difficult trip from Kos to Samos....  Both Islands are located very close to the turkish mainland and normally a 3,5 hours ferry ride apart....  normally.. in our case the Meltemi started o blow a bit too hard for the Hydrofoil Ferry, the flying Dolphin...  not so much of flying....  we had to choose a safe optin to get to Samos on time... in this case that meant a 12 hours Ferry ride to Athens, a full day at Piräus port in Athens before getting back almost all the way...  on a bit slower ferry, this time 14 hours on rough sea...  enough to arrive seasick.....  the first two three days just anything was spinning around me....  weird feeling....  but it was also another nice and new experience and for me that is part of why a love to travel still...... Now it´s time to orgaize our 2013 Camps, most dates are already online now at www.windsurflabor.de

Doctors or thriller authors ??

Back from the canaries, ready for some full body checks...  not the nicest idea but had to be done...  but..  already during a little check at Doctor number one I was sent to hospital straight away in an ambulance...  weird... and first time in my life...  suspicion of pulmonary embolism... felt kind of shocked when i heart that one first...  but after two days of full body, lungths, heart etc. check it all came out good and i had to move and see some more doctors to find out an allergic reaction...  the best result for me was that everything has been checked and i can live a bit easier now...  right on time for the next Jobs and Camps....  uff...  And before...  Canaries ??  I left Fuerteventura ten days ago, coughing hard and remembering some strange winds, much more gusty than usual and lots of Calima...  and yes, that nice, hot Sahara storm has most probably been the kick off for my allergic reaction....  by now it has been more than a month without Freesailing for me....  and some more weeks to go.....  But I am also looking forward to some more nice Events at Kos and Samos in Greece....

busy on canaries....

I´ve been lazy writing in my Blog ultimately..  ?!  well, actually a bit too busy with other priorities would be more correct i guess....  two super nice Windsurf Camps at Lanzarote with unbelievable conditions....  some more weeks at Lanzarote for pictures and video before moving to Fuerteventura, for even more fotos, lots of video, the upcoming worldcup and another Clinic at the Fuerte Funcenter Costa Calma.....  it´s not only busy but also hard times.. the wind keeps on blowing and blowing, nonstop...  especially now at Sotavento Beach we have to take out the smallest gear which still mostly is just too big....  some Calima days, with lots of clouds, sandstorms and even harder winds....  my fisio got quite some work to do with my body....  if you want to see some of the images you can go to my Foto section at my website  or check www.windsurflabor.de

Back to Canaries - Lanzarote

My time in Tarifa has been really good and I am glad to finally go back to one of my favourite places and to Top it all I could score a fantastic day at Bolonia with glassy, long, headhigh waves...  Not the only reason why I will be back in Tarifa very soon !!!

While two years ago I could travel from Tarifa to the Canaries with one direct flight it has all changed a little and this time at had travel Tarifa - Sevilla - Mallorca - Madrid - Lanzarote....  an it was worth it....  Again i am at one of my favourite Islands with all those super nice people around and amazing Windsurfing.

We just started our Carve and Ride Fanatic Pro Camp three days ago and had already three wavy days, quite big ones sometimes and the forecasts tell us about some magic days this weekend, monday, tuesday....  Don´t worry...  I´ll have the images and Fotos ready for you !!  So far it have been three very challenging days, my participants still have to get used to the conditions and the fact that the wnd is more offshore and more on /off than usual doesn´t help us too much but it´s still alright... New experiences also help a lot to improve....

Tarifa rules..

Hard to believe that I spent already two weeks in Tarifa again and I really don´t want to think about next week when I have to leave, even when I know that I will go from one of my most favourite places to the next, Lanzarote. The fact that I know I´ll be back here soon again makes those thoughts a bit easier..    I am always pretty stoked to meet all my Tarifa friends and getting to know very nice people every time again, but especially this time...  And the fact that it has been windy most days, with strong Levante and nice Poniente so far and the next Levante starting tomorrow made life also better down here in the south of Spain.....

Moulay to Tarifa

Already almost a week ago I finished my first Wave Special in 2012 at Moulay in Morocco, well, it has been another very interesting week with four days of SUP and Surf and two windy days continued with a loong trip on moroccon highways towards Tarifa. Tarifa, finally back, it has been almost three years that i last vistited one of my most favourite Spots, to Windsurf and to live. It was about time, and i am just super glad to be back here and sad that i don´t even have three weeks in this most southern point of Spain, but since i got here i had some amazing days with full Levante and one day resting.......  just love being here......  

Today i went for the first time to the Spot at the Dune.......  well, this one has never been my favourite Spot along the coast between Tarifa and Cadiz, but today i realized once again why......  I felt like a peace of wood in the middle of an industrial saw.......  sharp edges of Kiteboards and Lines close (very close) by .....   it seemed like the Kitesurfers wanted to show my every single Pixel of their latest graphics as close as they could...  When I started counting I stopped at 178 Kites and still much more to go..... and all that right in front of three Windsurf Centers.......  just crazy and not my Spot to Windsurf for sure and after watching the behaviour of most Kitesurfers I don´t have any motivation to go Kitesurfing again...........   well, not the best day for sure..............  but at least it was windy and I got on the Board and practise a bit......  the forecast looks sick...  I will keep you informed what´s going on over here....

Sup to Fly to cold......

My personal SUP Winter is over, Windsurfing hasn´t happened that much since a few months as the conditions just failed again, thanks to La Nina by the way, the weather phenomenom that visited Isla Margarita two years ago and decided to stay for a while, but she be packing already to leave pretty soon, believing all forecasts .....  SUP was fun in the wave sat the Northshore of our Island with my new Fanatic Pro Wave 8´10" SUP and also along the southcoast shorelines and Lagoons around El Yaque Beach....  It all stopped for me now, as I packed my stuff as well and left to Germany for a few days before heading south again, to Marocco for our first 2012 Wave Special in Moulay....  Hey Bruno, I´m on my way !!

Bruno is the owner of the Fanatic Boarderscenter Magic Fun Moulay and a really nice guy as Miloud Elabdi as well, his employee and one of THE guys rocking that Spot....

well, no my fingers get a little stiff with the 30 degree celsius difference of air temperature i just had.....  so will post you some more very soon....

Full on Semana Santa....

Semana Santa is on, full on better to say....  El Yaque is close to explode by just too many people and cars and it feels as even houses and cars are jumping to the never ending vibes .....  I kept myself busy by taking pictures of the scenery....  what else to do when the wind stopps again right during Semana Santa....  I got a nice little galery at the El Yaque News Facebook page for you ...  Semana Santa Galery

zero respect ... ??

Respect is a word well used around here, but many times i wonder if anybody knows what it actually means, to show and receive some respect....  well, at the moment we can see the zero respect time coming .. again...  it is getting close to the crazy Semana Santa week, but already now during the weekends many many people come to El Yaque Beach, to enjoy a day at the Beach and drink, while parking cars where they are really not supposed to park, blocking other cars and just any house entrance they can find as it seems, leaving all their waste behind, driving like crazy through the crowds walking on the street or boatwise through the crowds of Wind and Kitesurfers and swimmers....  it´s those times where i can´t  talk a single word, when my head keeps on shaking I think still when i´m sleeping....  I just hope it doesn´t get tooo bad...  but i´ll keep you updated, with new Semana Santa pics as well, of course

Back from Coche.... grey live...

Ten days Coche Island, usually kind of nice experience with the nice watercolours and bright white sand....  well, this time it has been more grey, with clouds covering the sky almost every single day and rain pooring down a couple of nights...  back at El Yaque Beach it´s not too different; i´ve had two days on my 5,4 and 95 litres but hello, IT IS MARCH.......  the month where I am used to use my 4,2 plus Waveboard most of the time, where I go Downwind to Punta Canero for some amazing Jump Sessions....  well,......  not this year so far........  I really hope it is gonna change soon....  If not I would have to look back onto an entire season using 5,4 and 95 litres....  my biggest gear.......  and not my favourite....  well....  still I got one month left.... and I cross fingers 254 hours per day.........

uppps it happened again....

it happened again 

 

- that windforecasts predict 23 - 24 or more knots and we get not even half of it

- waveforecast looks amazing and it´s deadflat

- it rains hard in the morning - than sun - shaky low winds and rain again

 

but what really accelerated  my pulse was that AGAIN i was hit full power by a Kite, with my ankles, arms and shoulder wrapped up in the lines and the Kiter telling me not to deinflate his kite, of course, once my feet and hands fell off he could continue sailing, sorry that i did not understand that right away on the water....  well...  at least this Kitebeginner had a nice swim session back to the beach (wasn´t really far but hopefully gave him enough time to think) And indeed his excuse was that he was still a Beginner.... so.....  what the he....  has a Kite Beginner to do in the middle of hundreds of Windsurfers , swimmers and Kids when there are soo many Kiteareas with supervision boats etc upwind and downwind of the Windsurfers..... ???????????????  It happens more and more again that people start to learn with their own gear upwind of the windsurfers to bodydrag through all the people, land the Kite onto the people at the beach, grab the stuff, walk upwind and repeat that story.... over and over again...  Smart ???????  

 

It sounds pretty angry, well, I was pretty angry, but mostly about the fact that I know how to Kitesurf and to keep the Kite on the water to not hurt myself even more...  but what if it woudl have happened to another Windsurfer who doesn´t know how to handle a Kite...  really don´t like to think about that and i won´t , since it seems that those guys don´t bother about too much either.... But some people should really start to rethink about making the Beach safer, it is highseason with many Windsurfers, Kitesurfers and Swimmers plus crowded Beaches........

Noooiiise.................

Our First Camp finished already a week ago and since than we had no wind or just not enough for decent Windsurfing, well, now it seems the wind is coming back, pure sunshine, stabil weather makes the Beach look pretty nice and the wind improve.... BUT, actually no european woud like to stay at the beach at the moment, it´s a short venezuelan holiday, Carnival....  Not only that once again there are just too many people, boats, jet ski...  at the small beach, the recently built stage right at the Center of the Beach powers music at full volume onto the people, hammering into ears, legs and stomach....  wow !!!!  Venezuelan seem to like it as they start dancing at the Beach, but even far away from the stage you can´t understand your own words....wow again !!!!  it´s like in traffic over here...  or full speed or stopp - music full volume or switched off ...

Lucky - lucky - lucky

We just finished our first Fanatic Pro Camp at El Yaque Beach, one reason why I didn´t actualize my Blog in the past two weeks, my focus has been more on the Event, our guests, Video and Foto....

The season so far hasn´t been nothing good, well, better as past year but still i am using my Fanatic Freewave TE 95 and the North Duke 5,4 every time i am on the water, my biggest gear and so far there was no chance to get to the smaller stuff, well, during our Camp in two or three days i could have used 5,0 but not necessarily.

Regarding our Camp, how lucky were we !!!!!

Rain and no wind before and after the Camp and exactly during our Camp pure sunshine and windy 24 hours per day, each day....  But not only because of the conditions it became a really great event, just anything was good, Center, Equipment, Beach, Happy Hour Bars, Dinner Restaurants, BBQ.....  I am crossing fingers already for our next Camp in March to be as good !!!!!

Our Event Video will be online very shortly, so long you can check our Windsurf Camps, Images and more Videos here :  www.windsurflabor.de

Wind - or surf ??

Today I was just writing the date 11th of January into some mails. 11 days in the new year already. Something has changed in those days....  ???  well, let´s see....  the last day of 2011 I have been Windsurfing and on my SUP Board for a while, in 2012 I had some very nice SUP Sessions already up in the north of our Island with some nice sets of waves, but still i haven´t been once on the water with my windsurfgear....  the windforecasts and some locals are writing about 20 - 25 knots, which are far away from reality at the moment...  The only people on the water are some Kitesurfers with their biggest fly elements, but at least most national tourists have disappeared and the ISland got more empty, less crowded and so of course also the beaches....  it´s nice to see the sand again.....  while we are waiting for some decent windsurf winds, we take the drive to the northerly surf spots as an almost daily routine by now...  also not too bad...  

But surely the wind will be back soon as well and than i´ll have some more windsurfpics for you as well....  so long i am just posting some of my new El Yaque Landscape / Ambience images......

Passed Christmas.....

Christmas is over. It has been a new experience this year when i could see the way of latin Christmas celebration which is pretty much different to the european way and looks more like New Years Eve....  with loud music, party and massive fireworks....  

During the day it can´t be missed that something is going on, christmas holidays also in Venezuela, our Beach completely filled and overloaded and the way towards the water is sometimes hard to find and always a fight through people yelling at you because you try to carry your gear safe to the water....   Luckily the windforecasts once again are completely wrong, as they predict winds between 18 and 25 knots and we are not even close to the ten knot mark....  so I can avoid the beach and people without any bad feelings and do my gardenwork, which i don´t really like but which has to be done.....

At least we had two stormy days, with rain and some little waves just before christmas to get on the water ... At the last day I put my GoPro CAm with the Mastmount into my sail to shoot some video and images and on the last run back to the beach the cam got lost, even with security leash and mastmount fully intact....  not the best day....  But only two days later I got my first Christmas present when a local fisherman brought me a little black bag with my GoPro inside, which he found between some rocks while searching for some seafood...  all good in the end...  now we are waiting for 2012 and some improvements of the conditions and some more windsurfers over here, so far not many people found their way to Margarita......

SUPing El Yaque Beach

Converting El Yaque - my home village in the Caribbean indeed is changing, as it became famous for Windsurfing, than Kitesurfing also, now national Party and family tourism without any watersports is growing and the wind seems to have decided to stay away as it is not needed here anymore ???  Well i can tell that the wind has been pretty poor in my first weeks. I had some nice Windsurfing Sessions, but only a few hours in five weeks...  pretty disappointing. But my SUP skills are getting better as we get some nice surf waves almost every day at some Spots at the Island. Sometimes that means to stand up at 5.30 in the morning and drive almost one hour up north or north east, but almost always it is worth it. But now even in front of my door in El Yaque we get some swell and i can carry Board and paddle few meters to the beach for real fun....  but also the ind also seems to finally come back and give it another try .....

SUPing Playa Guacuco...

It is certainly not the best Surfspot at our Island but maybe The Spot which almost always works somehow, Playa Guacuco in the Northeast of Isla Margarita and as the Wave forecast is pretty poor at the moment, we took the chance and drove all the way up North and actually it became much better than expected. It has been pretty Choppy and messy on the way out but once the wave built up it was pretty good and even good enough for a couple of turns on one of the chest high waves....  Good start in the day even when a Surftrip up North mostly means to stand up at five in the morning and leave home at latest 6.....

My cloudy week......

It has been a nice mixture of sun, rain and clouds this week. The rain at night helping my garden work, on one hand at least and during daytime it has been nice and sunny, with a couple of wind hours for my 5,4 sail with the 95 liter board. Was nice to be back on the water and to see a normal November again, plus those massive and mostly really beautiful clouds, creating insane sceneries and sunsets, but still the village is very empty, international tourists wise, the venezuelans do find their way to El Yaque Beach with their massive coolers full of alcoholic beverages, but almost none of them do any kind of watersports, so we have been never more than 5 Windsurfers together on the water, sharing the breeze with a handful Kiteboarders only......

El Yaque - Life and News

Time is flying by and when i woke up this morning I couldn´t believe that i got already ten days again at the Island of Margarita. On one side I still feel as I just arrived yesterday on the other side instead it also feels as i would have been year all year around, same people, same place, same weather, same problems and same positive things. What is different to the last year is that it is raining much much less and I got already some days on the water, even I could need a bit more of decent Windsurfing. A pretty strange and slow weather situation over the Atlantic Ocean just stopped anything we could use for some fun, Wind and Waves....   At least we get some amazing Sunrises and Sunsets served every single day....  pure beauty....  

I just uploaded a few new pics onto my most recent images site and of course my first pics of the week into elyaquenews.com

Caribbean life

It is my second day back in the Caribbean, after arriving thursday night with a quite expensive and sweaty trip in the back. It was the first time I had to fly via Caracas when coming from Europe and it was the first time that i had to pay that much for that little Windsurf Gear ......  650 Euro for the lightest bags i ever travelled with....  wow.....  plus one of my sails arrived broken...  very nice...  

after checking out at Caracas International running with all my stuff to the national airport, which actually is no problem at all, only a bit hot when arriving from cool europe, a little delay at the departure to Margarita and there I was again, the caribbean got me back for some more months. Of course it is nice to leave the airport and stand under palmtrees, wake up the first morning, under palmtrees and watching the sea, even better when it is windy, as it was my first day..  sunny and windy weather...  gear prepared, realizing that my brandnew sail broke during the travel..  and than onto the water anyway....  shorts and lycra shirts instead of wetsuit and still too warm...  great !!!!  a little rain at night and i have been adapted to caribbean life in fast forward mode.......

Last autumn impressions...

Only few more days in Europe, before heading over the Atlantic Ocean and to the Caribbean for the winter. Only few more days to enjoy the autumn, the coulours, the sun, the lower temperatures and the low humidity before being back at 80 % humidity, warm rain and lots and lots of sun and heat....  All packed, also my new Fanatic SUP Pro Wave which I´ll hopefully use by the end of this week as well as my WIndsurf Gear....  it´s been a while now without and wind and water....

Hopefully the weather over here remains calm and dry the next days to really enjoy and have a good ride to the airport.......

Winter plans.....

Time to get organized, time to plan and time to get ready. 

We just finished the schedule of our 2012 Clinic Tour with our Windsurflabor.de Windsurf Camps - Fanatic Pro Camps and so it is time to plan all my 2012 trips, compare prices and organize nice programs for all who will join our Camps next year....  luckily I can do that type of work whereever i am and so i can also enjoy the beautiful colours of german autumn, which makes me go out early in the morning to take some nice sunrise images which i will post in my most recent images galery here at my website and at my facebook site....  

Soon i have to leave and will spend my winter in the Caribbean, back at my second home. Caribbean Winter means sun, nice people, beautiful Islands and hopefully lots of wind an waves for my sport. I am just working on my elyaquenews.com website as well to show you more than ever about our beautiful Island plus we  will have  a little Video Channel this year as well plus the well known pic of the week galeries...  I hope you will enjoy them...

German sunrise....

Still I am in Germany, waiting for my flight into the sun... but actually the sun is back also in Germany and the freezing temperatures of last week have improved a bit - good enough to get up early and enjoy the beautiful sunrises over the little lakes surrounding our little village and for some excessive Bike Rides.....  A couple of hours along the beautiful Rivers, enjoying the landscapes and nature, every single day...  it is nice to live autumn again....  while the rest of my year usually is pure summer.... unluckily i will be leaving before the first Snow, but well, can´t have it all.....

At least i got the opportunity to get some new Images for my germany galery and to upload onto some stockfoto sites....  

I hope you´ll enjoy the images which you can find at my Tom Brendt Photography   Facebook site....  or just in my latest images site here at tom-brendt.de

Fly and Drive and fly and drive and.....

Busy times, busy summer...  but travelling is almost over for this year, after coming back from Kos in Greece I went straight to our Wave Special in Moulay / Morocco, the second one this year at the Fanatic Boarderscenter Moulay in 2011 and again we had some amazing conditions, even when the wind has been lighter than in may, we had waves each day and wind at 5 out of 6 days...  almost perfect, plus we´ve had the spot all for us, completely alone... amazing....  than back to germany, for one day...  well, actually for more but with only one day at home straight on to the PWA Worldcup Sylt, at least for the last weekend and the pricegiving ceremonies of Gollito and Yoli, plus seing all our Fanatic Team again at the Fanatic and North Tent....  if you will be there as well, just pass by to say hello !!

Another Surf Cover....

Time to Blog again, after two weeks at the Island of KOS in Greece with a quite expensive but not working Internet Connection and blogging, when possible, at our Windsurflabor.de Blog. Well, two weeks Fanatic Pro Camps at the Island of Kos are over, unfortunately with less wind than in our previous Events at the same place, but still we had two very nice weeks with very nice people. But on the other hand we could feel the difficulties the greek are living with at the moment and sometimes it felt as one of the mayor income possibilities are not being seen or clear enough, the tourism.... But well, it´s not on me to discuss those things, just felt a bit strange sometimes....  and we hope it´ll all be better in the near future.

With only one more Camp to go, our Wave Special in Moulay which starts the 21st of september, the end of our 2011 Camp Tour is coming very close and I started to organize the next Tour, with new Destinations and even more Camps, there should be something for everybody.

As well I will focus more on my photography work in the wintertime and got some more Motivation after seeing my latest Cover shots.....

Fast Lane Travel

What a journey today, lovely. You never know what to expect when you start a new journey, on the way to the airport, at the airport, during the arrival, the Transfer to the Hotel, at the Hotel Check Inn, many opportunities for surprises. Well, today I was really surprised, very positive....  The highway to the airport has been empty as never before and I arrived much quicker than planned, entering the Check Inn zone a friendly voice at the Airberlin Counter asked my name even before i arrived at her counter, and once i arrived i had to show my passport while my boarding pass was already printed, wow....  arriving at kos Airport I couldn´t even follow, how fast did that luggage come out and went into the Taxi...  not even one hour after the plane touched greek ground i was already checked into my Hotel, with more than half an hour drive....  And than the Natura Park Hotel, really new and very pretty and friendly....  couldn´t be better to start our two Fanatic Pro Camps over here tomorrow....  You can follow our Camps at the windsurflabor.de Blog

Wet but wrong....

A week ago i was just waking up in Germany after having arrived from the Canary Islands and now I got already almost one week at the dutch coast, spending little family holidays in Zeeland plus some Fotoshoots and Video to get published after our little Trip here and before leaving in a week to Greece, where we will hold our next Fanatic Pro Camps at Fanatic " The Boarderscenter" Kos. Only thing is, that so far there has been no chance to get any Footage together. The first days we spend under blue skies and pretty nice temperatures, before the weather decided to change drastically and forced us to sit at home, watch lightnings crashing into the Sea and the rain getting our gear soaking wet. Wet is ok, if it is on the water, playing around and falling and crashing, but if it is while trying to get some bread dry home it is actually not that funny... But well, that´s part of life and when you head towards the north sea coast it is also something you should always expect....  I am pretty sure that Greece ill be different...  so long I work on my latest Bikini Shots we did at Fuerteventura and I just put my new Holland Galery online

Sand to Dunes

My days (months) at the Canary Islands are over, I can easily look back to weeks with lots of wind, only that the quality of the wind hasn´t been really what it usually does in canarian summer. Last Monday i left Fuerteventura, but only to repack my stuff, load the car and drive over to the dutch coast, little family vacations and i have to say, after so many years coming here I still lve the north sea coastline, the landscapes, people even the weather, which is quite up and down, changing from full sunshine to thunderstorms and back, but well, nothing to complain. yesterday i had my first little SUP session here to check the water temperature and conditions. It has been much warmer than i thought, only that the little waves were way too chaotic and choppy, but fun in the end anyway

Sun, Sand, Wind

Day two after finishing our Windsurf Camp at Fuerteventura and two more days at the sunny, sandy and windy Canary Island. As always I have been pretty happy and stoked once I arrived at the Canary Islands quite a while ago, but I am also kind of happy when I leave, knowing that I will be back again. Maybe it is that I know the villages and Islands already too well and would like see something new and different, or is it the steady winds, hitting my tired body or the fact that you got sand everywhere all the time and there is no chance to avoid it ?  Can´t tell, but on one side I am a little sad I´m leaving very soon but on the other hand i am really looking forward to all coming in the next months.... Holland, Greece, Morocco, Spain, Germany, possibly Denmark and Brasil, before it will be about time to saddle down for a few months and relax a bit more, without hours, days at airports and in planes.....

Another week flying by....

Wind plus wind plus wind....  that has been the formula of our latest Windsurf Camp at Costa Calma / Fuerteventura...  it has been the ....??....  edition of this Event at the Fuerte Funcenter and for sure it was the windiest we did...  it was blowing every single day and sometimes on the limit to be too much to really learn and practise something....  with a morning and an afternoon group, lots of theory and hours and hours on the water, the week was flying by and i can´t believe that it is already over...  back to shooting images, Foto and Video in the next days before leaving the Canary Islands after two and a half months, three Windsurf Camps, two at Lanzarote and the one here at Fuerteventura and two PWA Worldcups. The next Stopp will be a bit colder but hopefully also serve some nice conditions for Windsurf, Surf and SUP... in Holland...  a week at the dutch coast before heading over to Greece / Kos for two more Fanatic Pro Camps ( still few places available by the way)

Before leaving i surely will add some more images to my Fuerteventura Galery

During my absence at my private BLOG i have been writing little daily reports about our Windsurf Camp here......

One day to go ... Fuerte Camp

The Worldcup Competition "stress" is over and we got a few days to relax a bit, work on the images and reports plus do a few more Fotoshoots (images you´ll see shortly) Now it is time to foucus again on our Fanatic Pro Camps, the next one is starting tomorrow at Costa Calma - Fuerteventura and the forecast looks amazing, actually pretty hard for two days but ok...  it will be a nice week for sure.I´ll keep you updated here and at our Windsurflabor.de Blog.... Again it has hard to believe that we´ve spent already a few weeks here at Fuerteventura. The next weeks will be much more busy again, Camp here, than straight to Holland, Greece, Germany, Morocco, Sylt, Brasil, Venezuela.....  I will have to change my nice Rapa Nui Cafe with airport Bistros, but still is something i really do like.....  I just uploaded my 2011 Fuerteventura Galery

hot, hotter - Fuerte

The PWA Freestyle Worldcup at Fuerteventura is over - i can´t remember having seen a Worldcup here like it has been this year.... usually there are two options at Sotavento...  or the wind kicks in full power or there is just no wind and it gets hot (that´s what is happening right now) But this year the Contest looked pretty similar to the previous Events in 2011 at Aruba and Bonaire.... The Sailors on their biggest Sails, pumping into Moves trying to catch some of the gusts, sometimes it even reminded me on penalty shots after tied football matches.....

In the end it was Steven van Broekhoven who finished first and secured his first Worldtitle, well done Steven !!  Same to Sara Quita Offringa, only that it was already her fourth title in this discipline.....  

Now we got some time to relax, get some Photoshoots done and prepared for our Fanatic Pro Camp Fuerteventura which will start next week at the Fuerte Funcenter at Costa Calma

I just uploaded my PWA Freestyle Galery for you

How to explain that ??

Sometimes it is just hard to believe and sometimes even harder to think about why the wind so many times drops exactly for a big Windsurf Contest and the weeks before and after are just windy....Well, that is what´s happening right now at Fuerteventura where we have been sailing with sailsizes between 3,4 and 4,2 full power for the past two weeks - today is the inscription for the Worldcup and the first real no wind days in weeks, plus it is raining..... Looking at the forecasts, it actually doesn´t look so much better for the entire contest...  only for day one after the Freestyle it all looks normal and windy again....  It would just be great to have a real high wind and so extreme Freestyle Contest after a couple of very light wind Competitions where all Competitors had to struggle to perform their moves and where the most radical manouvers were just not possible..... I spent my time already wit taking some pictures of the Island which you can find here in my most recent images galery....

Funwork and overpower

It was one of those days where the timing just went wrong. When we arrived to Sotavento Beach yesterday, the sea looked white, the wind was super strong already and i decided to do a little Fotosession for some tuiton reports i´m working on, especially the how not to do´s we needed, so I crashed lots of times for the Camera, getting blown away a couple of times by the big gusts.... and once we had quite some images on the Chip, I went out again, this time for fun but with the time the wind just picked up even more and the waves got much smaller....  So no need to change my Freewave Board with the Quad Waveboard and the 3,7 i left at home anyway as i didn´t think it might get that windy...  well, today it´s all packed, even the 3,4......  latest news from Morro Jable a bit more south was a windspeed of 45 knots.....

calm offshore start of the day

It is already our fourth day at Fuerteventura, unbelievable. I think that time was flying by with the immense Windspeeds we had in the past days...  I have been sailing my 4,2 but was just well overpowered all the time while most other windsurfers were flying on their 3,7s... Today is the first calm morning, with a nice offshore breeze but it looks as we would have some amazing winds in the afternoon, again....  well, this way i can at least rest my knees a bit which didn´t feel too good after yesterday´s rodeo Sailing.... The tough Choppy Waters made my body hurt but only my body, while some guys came off the water with their boards in two pieces....   To start the day we got used to it by now to spend some time in the beautiful Rapa Nui Cafe on top of Costa Calma with a great view onto the bay, so for sure we won´t miss when the wind kicks in again....

Fuerte Ventura = Strong Winds

It has been time to move, again. After a couple of weeks at Lanzarote with some great days on the water, lots of wind, nice waves and above all very nice people, I had to pack my stuff and take the Ferry over to Lanzarote´s neighbor Island Fuerteventura. To think about what would expect me at Fuerteventura wasn´t that hart, as sometimes I feel that i would know every single sandkorn over there. But actually it has been really nice to get over here once again and already the drive down from Corralejo to Costa Calma, passing the nice waves of Flagbeach, Glass Beach and Puerto Lajas made the almost 2 hours drive quite short and made me look forward to my time here on the water. The fact that most people in the north of the Island were Windsurfing with quite small sails already let me know that in the south it must be hauling, and once we came down the hill towards Costa Calma, passing the Spot of Matas Blancas made it even clearer. The Sea was white, the wind was blowing hard and the sails we could se on the water looked quite small and the spray caused by massive crashes created a spectacular scenery.... Unluckily we arrived a little late to prepare our gear and go out but anyway the wind would stay and we would have well enough time on the water. Now I´ll report a bit from here and serve you some nice images .....

Last day.....

Time is flying by, as usual, and my time at Lanzarote is already over, time for another change when we head over to Fuerteventura tomorrow morning. Somehow sad somehow also ok to have a little change. But certainly i will mis all the super nice people here at Costa Teguise, that´s for sure. It is just always nice to be here....  So tomorrow we will exchange the Lava Rocks with the sand... Let´s see what Fuerte will offer us this year, actually i think we know that exactly, I feel like i would knw each sandkorn at Fuerteventura already since we´ve been there already many many many times.....  

Today at Costa Teguise it looks windy again after a light wind day yesterday which i could use for a little Micro Wave SUP Session...  I think i will be off the SUP Boards for a while now....  More news at my Blog from Fuerteventura...

Love that sound....

It is the best to fall asleep and even nicer when you wake up in the morning... the sound of the waves breaking outisde... actually we don´t live that close to the sea, we got nice seaview at our actual home at Lanzarote, but with the swell being a little bigger these days we got no problem to hear those mountains of water collapsing onto the Beach and the rocks....  

It has been a real fun day on the water, even if the wind was a little to north and so also a bit gusty (and way to strong for the 4,5 i was using) it was really nice to be on the water, and use the overpowered sail to easily go upwind with my Fanatic Quad 79 to get back towards the Beach (better the Rocks) of La Pulga and get one wave after the other.....  i wasn´t really surprised that i was that tired at night and wouldn´t have needed the waves to fall asleep....

today the wind is a bit lighter but the waves are still here, for another nice session and maybe with the 4,5 as the right choice today......

check also the Galery of yesterday´s day at Costa Teguise

White and Black day... but no grey

I will start with the white start of the day... the PWA Freestyle Worldcup at Lanzarote is over and Gollito could win again, already his fifth time here at Costa Teguise and finally this year he could proof his skills after difficulties at the first Events with very light winds and on Flatwater.....  The master of the Airmoves hit back today !!!  Very nice and great to see....

The Black side ??  well not really black for my personal Windsurfing it has surely not been the best day, I went out before the Worldcup started today and with my first Jump I crashed my Mastfoot, unluckily that was at one of the last waves of the Las Cucharas Reef, which means actually not really close to the Beach, and as none of all the Windsurfers around me went for help, I went for a nice 1,5 hours swim with my gear....  luckily i made it back right on time to sprint over to the Competition Area and follow the last Heats of this Worldcup and see Gollito winning....

All good I thought, time for me to get on the water for a good session this time...  I bring my Board to the beach...  forgot something at the Center, when I come back to the Beach I see a huge gust taking my gear and smashing it onto the rocky way....  So this session was over before it even begun.... enough for today, better to stay at the beach and take a rest, to repair my Freewave and have a nice day tomorrow on my Quad.... Forecast looks amazing....  By the end of the week we will leave this beautyful Island and head over to Fuerteventura.....

Missed it....

Actually i wanted to report a bit about what´s going on at the 2011 PWA Freestyle Worldcup, put some nice images online and inform you about the moves of the day....  well.....  two days are over and i missed it all, spending hours and hours at the airport waiting for windsurf gear to finally arrive....  which finally worked out this late afternoon and i when i arrived at the beach the competition was just called off for the day and i missed it all again....  well, the semifinals of the first singe elimination will be Steven van Broekhoven vs Davy Scheffers and Anthony Ruenes vs Gollito Estredo, big upsads for Taty Frans and Kiri Thode who lost vs Scheffers and Ruenes in their Heats. The Competition will continue tomorrow and since i don´t have to go to the airport again, i will hopefully deliver a full report including images....

The Fun of travelling....

I know we are blessed that we can do where many people dream about, Travel the world and Windsurf, besides all the Fun (there is some work involved actually as well....) all the new impressions and people we see and meet, the fun of the Travel is not what it has been before. Most Airlines don´t like to take the Windsurf Gear anymore and that with the Boards (and so the Bags) getting shorter and lighter. The biggest amount of money we have to plan now for the extra baggage, ok so far, but when it happens that you still have to discuss at the Airports and than you arrive at your Destinations, alone, without your gear, that´s when the fun factor goes down to zero, so maybe you can imagine how many faces of the Competitors of the Worldcup here at Lanzarote look like, while they are still waiting for their gear to arrive. The Worldcup starts today by the way. Worse it hit Worldchampion Gollito Estredo. Sitting in his plane, ready to take off from Venezuela to Spain, the Anti Drug Control stopped the plane, emptied the plane including the baggage to check everybody and everything all over again, five hours....  Of course once they finally took off the chance of getting the connection flights arriving in Spain was impossible, so worlds number one still sits at Madrid while all other riders (those who got their gear) warm up and inscribe for the Competition.

The positive, it was very nice to see all guys again after good 8 months and to see the actual Freestyle Level with super fast and high spins and rotations in all possible directions....  

I will report here in my Blog and with a final report about the Worldcup....  Hopefully it doesn´t become a very short one, the windforecast exactly for the three competition days went down to very low..... and to very strong right after the Event.

Sweater urgently needed....

What a surprise this morning when I opened my Hotel Room Window and a coold breeze hit my sleepy body....  ok, not the first time that Costa Teguise starts with clouds and lower temperatures into the day, i thought. Power Breakfast to get ready for another windy day and hours on the water, Boardshorts and Shirt as day´s clothing and off to the Beach....  Bad decision to leave my Sweater in the room was the first thing that came into my mind when i was walking along the Beach towards the Fanatic Boarderscenter. Luckily distances are short in the village and my way back to the Hotel didn´t last to long, only that i wished i wouldn´t carry my heavy camera bag plus Tripod at this moment.... Still better than freezing the whole day....  ok, can´t say if the whole day since it is one in the afternoon only and there is still chance for the sky to clear and the sun to come through....  that is what i am hoping for at least. The wind is already blowing hard, but none of the Riders who have already arrived for the PWA Freestyle this thursday, nor me wanted to head out now already due to the strange weather...   what a problem to be used to sun and warm temperatures  !!  ;-)

Suprise suprise....

And indeed some people might have been surprised today be the little breeze kickin´in at around 2 p.m. as just everybody thought that no wind will arrive today to the east Coast of Lanzarote, they all went partying hard last night, after the Rookie Cup, where I got second with my Team the Mafiosos...  Thanks Nadji for the disqualification at race 2 by the way...  ( just kidding, it was a real fun event where results didn´t count) and in the beginning it seemed as i was the only guy on the water going for some Freestyle before little by little one after the other showed up at the Beach and on the water asking to be silent please....  well, it was fun to not be too silent....  was it my fault to get wasted last night and trust the windforecasts ???  well, i don´t think so and so they deserved a little pain today....  :-)  let´s see what the week brings...  the Worldcup Setup is done, only that no rider has arrived yet as they just finished the Worldcup at Aruba and have to make it over here quickly.....  Hopefully the wind will be better as it is announced in most forecast....  as we got already enough light wind Freestyle Competitions in 2011

wasted

A little SUP Session at Famara, a couple of hot hot days and now also two days with lots of Windsurf and another SUP last night ....  that were my last days here at Costa Teguise - Lanzarote and today...  I feel pretty wasted... will need some stretching this morning and a long, very long massage would be very nice too.... The stretching seems realistic, the massage....  ?? don´t know...  At least I want to be fit this afternoon for the Big Fun Event at Las Cucharas : The ROOKIE Cup.....  it´s time again to battle team vs team on the massive plastic boards... a real fun event with a great BBQ and Party afterwards....  Of course I´ll have the images for you tomorrow, don´t worry....  but first... i need to lie own and get my muscles stretched......

Up and Down and black clouds...

UP´s and Down´s is what we live every day or every week in our life, but i don´t want to write about some psychological stuff but more about the actual weather and wind situation as they seem to know what are ups and downs as well...  after a very very windy week a couple of days ago, the wind here at Costa Teguise - Lanzarote has dropped a bit and the temperatures has gone up, maybe as a little welcome to all the tourists who have arrived by now to the Island, looks like the calm days are over. Much more people are now walking on the streets, cars are rented out, sunbeds are occupied and empty places at the beaches getting fiewer, but watch out, the next up for the windsurfers will com soon and with full power. Already tomorrow afternoon the sun addicts should hold onto their umbrellas and parents should watch out a bit better for their kids playing in the shorebreak...  For me that means one more resting day, and yes, Miguel, yesterday i really rested :-)  while a day before some little waves teased me onto the water with the SUP i gave my little holes under my foot a full day to rest, and another one today, probably....

 

Also at the PWA Freestyle Aruba the weather is playing games, dark clouds with thunder and lightnings, strong winds mixing with absolutely no wind...  Not exactly ideal for a Windsurf Worldcup, but conditions over there might change today as well...  let´s hope...

Stay at the beach....

is what i tell myself over and over again at the moment, to not go onto the water today. Actually i was hoping for a no wind day at Costa Teguise - Lanzarote, but the season seems to really have started and the conditions are just great each day, actually really good, when my body would feel the same as it did before the wind has started, not only that each muscle is aching and really needs a rest, also did i hit a rock almost a week ago with my foot and since that day i got two nice holes under my foot where you really don´t need them. Already walking is a challenge today, imagine standing and jumping on that windsurfer....  so, I will stay at the beach today..... maybe take some Fotos so that you can enjoy what i see at the moment each day....  

I already uploaded some Fotos to my latest images site...  check them out and i hope you´ll like them....

 

Today is also the start of the PWA Freestyle at Aruba.... and so feels my stomach, even if i can´t be there personally i am still almost as nervous, maybe even more since i can´t help Gollito or Yoli...  You can check the Freestyle live at pwaworldtour.com

tired and nervous

After two Fanatic Pro Camps at Costa Teguise, which have been very very nice, though we´ve been a little unlucky with the conditions, today, at my first day off, the sun was back and the wind has picked up lots and I had a couple of very nice sailing hours with my North ICE 5,0 fully powered up, some great ramps for jumping and some nice waves to play around....  just before i got a big nervous, once again, since the 2011 Bonaire Freestyle Worldcup was just about to start....  The Windforecast for Sorebon Bay at Bonaire was great, but would it be right and provide some good conditions for Gollito and Yoli ??  well, they managed the first rounds very well, even if stronger winds would have helped both a bit more....right now Gollito sails up to the semifinal while i am waiting for the next heat...  Yoli against Laure for the final... Yoli and Gollito lost their semi finals and now have to sail and battle for third place..  Both have just sailed but results will come after the winners finals... Ok, Yoli third and Gollito 4th after day one...  four more days to go....

Thanks Windforecasts !!!

My second week at Lanzarote is almost over and so my second week Fanatic Pro Camp at Costa Teguise. So far it has all been a really nice time, with very nice people, great attitudes and motivation, a lot of fun and laughter....  Only the wind was playing games with us all the time. The windforecasts promised amazing and perfect conditions, but what we got was far from perfect, even if it was was we needed to practise during our Camps, still it would have been nice to get more of the conditions the forecasts were talking about. Especially now in week two, where jumps are in focus we could need a couple more knots windspeed and some more waves......  So when we decide to head out with big boards to play a bit in light winds, the wind picks up , we go on the little funbaords to go for planning manouvres and jumps, the wind dies down.....  we sit at lunchbreak, the sun comes through and the wind picks up....  we get into the wetsuits and run to the beach and onto the water, of course, the wind dies down....  it all feels a little like somebody is playing a little too much with the wind switch....  lets see how the next two days will be........  of course i´ll kepp you updated...  you can follow daily reports also at the www.windsurflabor.de Blog

Interesting........ !! ???

I´ve been thinking ultimately how I could describe some situations i could just see and live, crazy, weird, sad, hopeless....  ??  well, i am back to the canaries after good 9 months and some things have changed over here, last the economic crisis was THE theme number one over here and many people surely suffered a lot, lost jobs or were close to loose their business. A year later the whole situation seems to get worse but also nothing has really changed...  and isn´t there a chance for change in each crisis ??  at least that is my point of view...  for me a crisis is a chance as a crisis will not stay forever and economy will grow one day again and than i would like to be prepared and to be there...

we will see what is going to happen in the near future....

and what about the weather ??  wherever I go or went in the past months it has been the same story, the weather has been completely weird, the wind hasn´t shown up but it´s been raining much more than usual...  well it is a La Nina year still and i guess we have to sit it out and wait a little and look forward to what we´ll get right after...  but indeed at many places the wind has changed quite a lot, different sail sizes have been used in the past years and long stabil wind seasons almost don´t happen anymore, doesn´t matter if egypt, greece, caribbean or canaries....  good to have the SUPs  :-)

all about travelling.....

After a pretty long, and windless, winter, the time has come to travel the world again. It is certainly lots about waiting at Airports, sitting hours and hours in airplanes, negotiating about the Windsurf Gear at Check Ins....  and being pretty exhausted by the end of the summer, much more it is about enjoying all the new impressions, even i got to know most places where i will travel to this summer. My first two journeys have been to Morocco and Egypt, bit critical countries at the moment, so what would expect me, would it be different as in the previous years, well, much more security for sure, but the rest was as beautiful as always and to be at arabic airports i actually like a lot, so many different cultures to see and just different to what i am used to see day by day. Next fight, next airport, Cologne, Nürnberg, Frankfurt, Agadir, Cairo, Sharm el Sheikh and now Lanzarote. Yes, back to the Canaries, lovely....  i am already really looking forward to it and to our two clinics we will hold at Costa Teguise at the FBC / CNS Windsurfcenter, one of my favourite Centers regarding Service, Gear and People....  let´s cross fingers to get some wind and also some waves in the second clinic week....    as warm up i just checked my Lanzarote Galeries again.....

Back to normality....

How worried i´ve been before leaving to northern africa after some bombings and violent demonstrations....  a little, yes, of course....  but more i was really looking forward to return to a really nice Wave Spot with Moulay Bouzerktoun and the chance to even get involved in some trouble, besides some long swims during possible big swells,would  be pretty low....  so happy i went again to Agadir and took the three hours taxi ride to Essaouira, our home base for the first Wave Special in 2011....  It hasn´t been that good the weeks before our Clnic, but exactly at the first Wave Special Day wind and waves kicked in....  just perfect...  2 - 3 meter waves each day....  the first days, the last two days much bigger....  and even if it has been a little big for some of my students over there, just anybody had a lot of fun and surely will return to this amazing little Wave and Windsurf Village in Morocco.....  I will for sure, already in September when we will hold our second Wave Special in 2011 at the same location.....  you want to be with us ??  just check www.fanatic-boarderscenter.com   or   www.windsurflabor.de    you´ll find complete reports about our clinic at  www.fanatic.com   and www.north-windsurf.com

Sunny Germany and Morocco

Wow, it has been a week already that i am back in germany, a very sunny and warm week actually....  i don´t know if this week has been better than the entire winter in the Caribbean, where a rainless week didn´t happen as far as i can remember...  :-)  but also my time in Germany is almost over, tomorrow morning i´ll be off to Morocco again, to our third edition of the Wave Special in Moulay....  hopefully we´ll get some conditions there as in the past we really couldn´t complain at all...

Of course I will report about the Wave Special in the www.windsurflabor.de  Blog daily....  with some images of what happened over there.....   so now busy time starts again, with many hours at worlds airports, i don´t know how many flights in the next months and lots of nice and beautiful destinations, i just hope i get to enjoy them a little as mostly i´ll be there for work and off again.....  we´ll see....  a little private time on the water would be nice after a very very calm wind winter......

exhausted.....

Back in Germany.... half a year at the usually windy place behind, but without the windy days but even more rain instead...  So i got on one of the last Condor flights from Margarita to Frankfurt, last time to enjoy a direct flight from europe onto that Caribbean Island and back...  already next time i have to choose the way via Caracas, as with Condor also the last remaining Airline leaves the rute...   well, it´ll all work out...  in the past i always liked my nightflight back to europe, sit down, sleep a couple of hours and arrive....  this time i could watch all the movies during the 9,5 hours flight....  sleeping was impossible, with a venezuelan woman and her little baby girl lying next to me, kicking me all night long and with another woman sitting next to me on the side getting unconscious and in need of medical assistance for a couple of hours....  so there was nothing more i wished to do than sleep when i arrived at Frankfurt Airport, but after two passport controlls, Drug Control and two custom controlls I still had a 2,5 hours drive ahead....  so once i arrived at home i just couldn´t sleep, i felt like too exhausted to sleep.....   but even easier it became to just rest during my first night in Germany, where I slept 12 hours....  something i´ve done last maybe like 15 years ago.... at least Germany is pretty enjoyable at the moment, sunny and 25 - 27 degrees...  perfect....

Wet Departure

Pretty hard to believe my season is already over, especially when looking back and onto this winter´s statistics.... i guess i´ve never sailed less in 6 months, spent more time in a gym, running or biking, plus endless sessions on the SUP Boards....  I really had lots of fun when i came here and one north swell after the other hit my favourite Surf Spot at Margarita...  lots of fun until we decided not to go anymore, because of several reasons.... so staying in El Yaque waiting for wind was on...  I guess we did the best to still get the work done and not get too bored, but for proper Video or Fotosessions there was juts no conditions...  just too cloudy all the time... of course i shot some landscape images ( see images )and a bit of the atmosphere under those massive mountains of clouds, but after all it has been a little disappointing....  well next time will be better again for sure....  leaving El Yaque i am wondering how it will look like when i come back, as soo many constructions have been started and so many changes are being discussed for the Village....  I´ll see and be surprised  I suppose...  Now back to Europe, where Sun is shining at least while I had to pack my Boardbags under the rain.... (and with like 99 % humidity, so sweating like hell  :-)   )

So my next Blog entries will be from good old Europe and Morocco....

Spring Break in El Yaque - Semana Santa reloaded

It is the time of the year where the people living at El Yaque Beach try to get away, find a place far away from the small village, and where thousands of venezuelans are waiting for. Semana Santa - two magic words for all those who have witnessed the easter week at the Island of Margarita in the past years - the time where thousands of venezuelan tourists invade the Island of Margarita with one major goal : Party !!!  and one of the Island´s Top adresses is Playa El Yaque...    Perfect !!  And if that would not be enough, each year the government comes with a couple of new rules - entrance for cars only couple of hours per day - no boats allowed at the entire coasts ( that´s where i can hear a loud horray from the Kite Centers) ..........   Well this year it is a little different...  with massive publicity even more people should come to the little village, more than half an hour drive away of most people´s residence in Porlamar ( during this week it can easily take also 4 - 5 hours )  and the Coast Guard came up with some new rules....  of course no boats allowed.. ( not so bad actually as there are just tooo many (drunk) people standing in the shallow water close to shore, but also some new marks have been set - a swimmers area ( also not to bad actually) - but all Kayaks and also the SUP´s have to paddle outside that area (OK)  - but even the SUP people, above all pretty well experienced people from El Yaque, have to wear life jackets.....  hmmm....  El Yaque converted into Lake Garda, a dream....   but still people are allowed to drive home after a whole day of sipping rum and whisky under the sun...   and that´s the point where i start asking myself about the sense of all those rules........  But, it´s Semana Santa - a very special week (this year even more)

El Yaque new politics...

Another day in which i come back home, wondering what is going to happen with the (former) Windsurf Paradise El Yaque and remembering how it has been when i first hit ground at this caribbean windsurf beauty, that might sound a little weird and like one of the grandpas telling stories to their little grandchilds...  well, so many things have changed over here in super fast forward mode...  I can´t remember to witness something similar somewhere else...  Only few years ago the Wind tourism was massive, one Windsurf and Kitecenter after the other, close neighbors...  all hotels packed from November until May and still quite some watersport fanatics during the rest of the year. Hotels only closed for a month or two in autumn, when few venezuelan tourists came over here  but always stayed in the city of Porlamar...  Bars and Restaurants tried to do their best to make anybody happy after a great day on the water....

So i am always wondering what´s the cause of that change, why Bars and Restaurants are now closed almost too many times between the venezuelan holidays, the Bodegones fill up their stands with tons of alcohol as it happens now again and remain closed for the rest of the day....  pretty simple to answer actually, Wind and Kitesurfers come for their sport, national tourists for Party and to consume...  good for the business... but just bad for the atmosphere....  the Wind community which it has been, has disappeared and a new Party Beach for maybe 6 weeks per year created....  sad but that´s the way it all seems to go...  new Posadas and small shopping malls are still getting build, Bars open and Beach and Village gets cleaned just before national season.....  No wonder that with Condor also the last european direct flight to Isla Margarita will stop their flights by the end of the month......

living a dream - unfortunately....

I still try to wake up, even if it feels as i would be typing right now.. watching the weather, watching the clowds...  and that´s exactly where i start to ask myself if i am dreaming or awake....  it has been the worst wind season i have ever witnessed so far, i have been sailing maybe ten to twelve times....  since October 2010 when i came back to Isla Margarita, in good hope of a nice Windsurf Season, great Photo and Video Shoots and keen to learn some new Windsurf Moves....  well that hope has vanished completely....  I waited and hoped until mid march, the date when the wind finally started....  and i had to start working day and night, as just too many fotoshoots and videoshots had to be done, since clients were waiting for two or three months already for wind and blue skies, too......  so i got to sail 30 minutes one day, on a very good day almost one hour.... some days zero.... and now that i have most work on the water and at the beach done and start editing, which can be done also in the morning and night and i would have some time for my sailing, the wind once again has gone, clowds are back and forecast predicts rain for this week....  so i hope it better is a dream.....  and i will wake up soon, it is October 2010 and I arrive at Isla Margarita with hope for a nice season.....

what a day.....

I expected nothing less than another windy day today in El Yaque, as it got better and better the past days, but what happened today was just awsome...  already early in the morning the wind exploded and we needed to rigg our 3,7´s...  pure fun...  even if most toursits didn´t feel the same way and decided to stay at the beach and watch or hide in the windshadow...    For me it has been pretty perfect... for a flatwater session, bit more waves would have been even better, but also just with the enormous pressure in the sail it was easily possible to get the right lift .....    so pure fun..  at least for good 1 and half hours.. until a very strange movement damaged one of my muscles in the shoulder and stopped my session.....  just checking which muscle it could be to get it fixed for the next days..  :-)

and it´s hauling.....

Finally !!  The wind really seems to be back in El Yaque, or what i say not back, it wasn´t really here before, so the wind finally has arrived and increases with every hour... in the past four days we had to use one size smaller sails every single day, so yesterday i was fully powered up, sometimes over, on my North ICE 4,5.... some little ramps made that day a real fun day to enjoy and maybe today we get even more, so for the 4,2 and some more wave...  i guess that will be the first real day to enjoy in 2011 than.....  what Gollito, Deivis and Yoli, but also french Anthony Ruenes did during their Training Sessions...  Top Secret  :-)  but just amazing.....  will keep you updated about what happens here today
