Here we can see Pablo (Killerfish) testing one of his own shapes with great graphics, in this case a Banksy tribute shaped for our common friend Paco.

13 years

Looks like yesterday to me, but was on Agust 13, 1996 when I arrived to Gran Canaria, so it's 13 years now... let´s see if I can recover my old film scanner and post some of my first photos on the island.

wind, wind, wind...

This is that time of the year when I just want the summer to finish, so many days with strong wind every single day (strong enough as to make impossible to dry the clothes outside) and the beach so crowded of people sailing... but, don't misunderstand me, I don't want to live anywhere else, but sometimes you just want the wind to slow down a little bit, 4,7 would be perfect for a few days, but the forecast doesn't look to be on my side... :)

the return of FUN

During the last two years, not 100% into proffessional photography and shooting a little bit with kids and girls, rediscovered the FUN, not that mutch the performance-proffessional side of the sport, but the pure joy of windsurfing, the original FUN we losted during the ultra-performance 90's, FUNBOARD is back!!!
Today in Pozo, for instance, was the classic light wind/no waves day that usually I wouldn't go in the water, but the guys from Cutre, borrowed me a Simmer XD 5'7 and a Fanatic Free Wave 113 and had a lot of FUN just crussing with some friends, one of those days you just feel happy after sailing.

Jonas Ceballos

I already posted this photo long ago in my other blog but now that I'm having a windsurfing blog, this shot had to be here, the light is not that good, but what a jump!!! one of the best back-loops I've ever seen.

I love sprays, but not all of them, not the ones just pushing your back foot at the end of a crappy top turn but the pure carving ones, the ones coming from true rail to rail surfing.

new angles

I hve to recognize I'm not a great slalom fan, but I tell you, adrenaline rushes when you are in mark one with a wide angle in your camera during a slalom course with 35 knots!!!

Dany Bruch

I took this photo during the Grand Salam in Pozo last summer, strong winds and big waves for an amazing expression session, as soon as I saw the helicopter I wanted to take the photo of a big jump with the helicopter in the background, but wasn't easy, the current was so strong and waves were breaking everywhere, and of course, the helicompter was moving all the time.
After two hours swiming against the current I saw the chance and shooted, after this jump the helicopter dissapeared, so I was lucky, finaly I had the shoot at the very last chance. :)

the first shot was a session for the cover of the spanish magazine Fuerza 7, the second was for the 2004 Simmer Style brochure, both, Jonas and Victor are amazing windsurfers to shot from the water

Pozo is not allways windy (but nearly) and I have to tell you... I love those glassy days!

Nayra Alonso

This is Nayra at her homespot, Vargas, this is what the judges call "controled radical manouvers in the critical section of the wave", this is one of those photos I don't understand why never did the cut in the mags.


We found this place not too far away from Pozo, on a rainy day during the 2008 North Sails photoshoot.

moments before detonation

I love those "in between" moments, where you can put yourself in the place of the rider and imagine what's gonna happen...

Dr. X

Iballa, sailing at El Faro, she's using a Dr. X, so as you can imagine, that was looong ago.

and one of my favourites

Javi Espin is not a proffessional windsurfer, even though his wavesailing at Pozo is higher than most of the pros, he is a pure athlete (spanish junior decathlon champion a few years ago) and can do back-loops in the wave :)

My worse picture ever

I'm starting the blog with my worse photo ever. Was one of those days in Pozo with gusts over 65 knots, Bjorn was just fliying, in this particular shot, I clearly remember myself thinking: "Dani, you are having the sequence of your life" and I started shoting, but just listened one "click" and then... the rewind of the roll, and Bjorn was still going higher and higher... I couldn't believe I had just shoted the last picture of the roll at the very begining of the highest jump I've ever seen, Bjorn easyly went double the heigh you see on the picture.
