Fuerteventura Wave Classic

We were expecting some action around Corralejo today, but the wind finally has decided to switch from NNW to North direction, that means a bit better around Cotillo's area.

As waves started to build up slowly after lunch time, it's been a warm-up for all the riders as local Jaume Coll started to catch some logo high sets in Puertito, in cross onshore moderate breeze...

Mostly all the guys then jumped in the water to test their skills on a wave they gonna ride on the next days, as the forecast still announces NNE winds with a bigger swell. Unfortunately today, the swell dropped down too quickly. Anyway, all of us feel pretty confident for the next 3 days...

Fuerteventura Wave Classic 

Today was a strange day with wind changing direction since early morning, not much swell and a bit of rainshowers.

At 2pm, all the teams were here in El Cotillo for a security briefing done by the Syrcanarias rescue staff.

The riders have been pretty attentive because we expect some big waves on friday and if action happens around Puertito, we all must be really attentive about security rules and know how a rescue can be operated with a Jetski with a "slide" (platform boogie).

Some riders then went around Puertito, just for cruising and to see how the spot looked like as there was some North wind in the area. The wind was well oriented and the swell was picking up, but not enough to allow a cool session. Furthermore, rainshowers arrived on the spot.

A small group finally went surfing in the waves of Cotillo's beach till the end of afternoon.

Fuerteventura Wave Classic 

No wind here in Fuerteventura's North Shore at the moment.

Some small waves were breaking around the coast though, allowing some of the riders to relax and enjoy some surfing or paddling.

Others took advantage of this cruisin' day to check their emails, share views about new board shapes or prepare their equipment while Yannick was pretty busy with Boujmaa, Francisco and Thomas' boards to fix before the conditions arrive.

Actually, all riders feel pretty confident (and happy!) as the forecast seems optimistic from Tuesday and for the whole next week!
