Last summer, for the first time in 15 years, I missed all the action in Pozo Izquierdo, but as Victor came early, we had time to do a few pictures and even though I left before we had a day with propper conditions, he doesn't need too much to deliver, as you can see. Today he turns 28, happy birthday Victor!!!

Last Friday, with the high tide, we saw a couple of nearly mast high sets and the wind was perfect (4,5), we thought we were about to have an epic afternoon session, but after that, conditions deteriorated; we had a nice afternoon session, but not the epic one we were expecting, not even close, but don't missunderstand me, I'm not complaining, I don't even know how many consecutive days we have been windsurfing this spring.

I started to take windsurfing pictures when I moved to the Canary Islands 16 years ago, I was so stoked, and windsurfing was feeling so good that kind of felt wrong just keep it to myself, so I had the need to share it; that was the reason I started taking pictures, to try to express the feelings, sensations, emotions, the FUN I had (and still have) when I'm in the water. I've been taking windsurfing pictures since 1996 and now I'm starting to feel I'm getting closer to capture those feelings in my pictures, and getting closer to the action, to the ones who windsurf, that is in my opinion one of the best ways to do it, so let's see what happens this summer...

Conditions were nothing special yesterday morning at Pozo Izquierdo, but somehow were enough to fire me up to go sailing, and despite I'm not a big fan of the strong wind, I ended up having a lot of fun, full powered with 4,2.

Great conditions today in Pozo Izquierdo, strong winds (maybe a little bit too strong) and nice waves, the sun was the one missing the party, so, knowing I didn't have the light for the pictures but having such good conditions for windsurfing, I decided to try something different and I went with the fisheye for the first time in Pozo, but instead of the 5D (the camera I always use for the water) I went with the 7D wich is faster and has crop factor, so the fisheye effect is not as pronounced.
Despite not having any great pictures from this session, now I know how to fine tune the settings for this combination and what to tell the riders to do when I go with this lens in Pozo Izquierdo again.
