Report from a week in Fuerta!
Not much wind!
3 days sailing out of 6. Though could have sailed big kit (100l+) every day (always F4).
5.7m/92l on 2 days and 5.3/81 on the last day.
Hired from Flag beach: good set up, allowing you to take kit away stuffed into hire car and sail in the best location for the conditions.
Took kit to wave break S of Glass beach one day but wind too light to really make the most of the waves (wobble out, ride in).
Unfortunately the conditions were tame until my last day when the wind veered NE and picked up to 30knts. This produced a big swell on the N shore and onshore overhead high waves at Flag beach. I sailed flag beach which was fun- some big jumps but should have gone to N shore.
Anyway- Andy is out there now and according to the forecasts should be getting 30kts every day with solid 2m+ groundswell! Lucky blighter!!
Worth a visit- something for everyone windsurfing wise.

Sounds good Steve. I was due to go next week but the holiday company cancelled due to our hotel closing for the summer to refurbish their pool!!! What a load of b*ll**ks!!!

Going to Tunisia instead.
