thanks guys.

the freestyle is supposed to start this morning but we woke up to this instead.



should be a good show if it gets windy. Gollito was doing some crazy stuff yesterday.

if anyone is interested in reading about Tenerife waves Ive put a report on my website with a couple of pics and will have one up shortly from Fuerte

Thanks for giving us some insight into places which most of us have only heard of. The photos are great, and it's nice to know that other places suffer from lack of wind also.
That looks like a really barren landscape.
What is it like inland?

It just gets rockier and more barren! There's full sand mountains at the south end where we are but a little further north there is quite rocky mountains. Doubtful there is a living plant on the whole island worthy of putting a sail under for shade....

Here's some of the videos I could find about the event. The slow-mo one is REALLY cool and the last Point-7 one is one I shot!

Congratulations to all the Aussies who were out playing at Fuerto, but especially to Finian Maynard for winning.
It's been a year of misfortune for him so it's good to see the RRD/Avanti rider at the top of the pile.

Hi from the Cocos Islands to all back in Perth....
