Forward loop

I rememer when I first started to get hooked on windsurfing (in the mid 80's), watching all those magazines and videos from Hawaii, with Mike Waltze, Dough Hunt, Dave Kalama and just a few more, doing the first loops in the big waves of Hookipa, which was supposed to be the only place in the world where conditions allowed this kind of jumps, but now, technique and equipment have evolved a lot and we can see loops as soon as the wind allows us to go in the footstraps no matter how the waves are.

Nothing but fun

Since I came back to Pozo a couple weeks ago, I had two sessions taking pictures from the water, but standing on the sandbar at low tide. Last Sunday I went for a propper water session, swiming at the peak and I really felt my time away, I was so tired but I managed to stay there for nearly two hours, but the worse was that I had no timing at all, I screwed several framings and I totally lost my fight with the drops, but you know what? we had a lot of fun.

I couldn’t expect a better welcome in Pozo Izquierdo, as I am completely out of shape, the light conditions we had this weekend have been perfect for my comeback, I had two windsurfing session with moderate wind and small waves (nearly flat) and later on, the wind picked up, waves got a little bit better and I could take some pictures, here you have just a preview, but now I’m destroyed and I have to wake up early tomorrow, so I’ll post more pictures during the week.

By the way, big changes in town, there’s a new shop in Pozo Izquierdo, Jonas Carlson and Javi Espín just opened POZO WINDS.
