We were fortunate enough to get more wind later in the week, and with the swell staying solid I could sail 2 more times with over mast high waves.
The vibe is really nice in Fuerteventura when there are good conditions; it is heavy and mellow at the same time. Sunny, warm and picture perfect, it is kind of unreal. Because the waves are so clean when it’s on, it makes it very fun to sail, even though the waves can be massive and have a lot of power. Back in 2004 or 2005 I had a memorable session at the same spot with similar conditions, big swell and strong wind, so I really enjoyed coming back more than 10 years later and scoring several days in a row with a few friends on the water.
