Julien Taboulet: riding double mast-high wave in the North Shore of Fuerteventura

The North Shore of Fuerteventura is a magical place, and when the right wind and swell align, it produces ideal conditions for wave sailing.

Julien Taboulet is a quiet, yet busy windsurfer. He's not a social media fanatic, and he runs the Wesh Center in Leucate, so it's hard to follow some of his secret adventures.

Nevertheless, recently, he's had the time of his life in the Canary Islands. With winds of up to 40 knots and double mast-high wave sets, the French delivered a stunning wave sailing lesson.

"What a session I had with my friends! When the Atlantic Ocean is on fire, it can deliver some awesome jewels, and not so far from your place sometimes," said Julien Taboulet.

"This is a powerful wave, where you need to stay close to the curl. We will never forget this intense ride!"

Taboulet wasn't the only windsurfer taking the most out of the North Shore of Fuerteventura. Recently, Leon Jamaer and Thomas Traversa have also chased a few swells in the region.
