Fuerteventura is one of the windiest islands in the Canaries and we base ourselves at Sotavento at it's peak time - mid summer! It's a fabulous windsurfing location on the southern tip of the island. It's a huge windsurfing beach which is famous for hosting speed and world cup freestyle windsurfing events. We specifically use the new ION Club centre which is based on the best part of the beach it is by far the best place to sail with a mix of super flat water, lagoon and speed strip. It is completely different and much better than the gusty, choppy, deep water and centre directly next to the Gorriones Hotel at the east end of the beach. ION CLUB is at the west end of the beach is a absolutely fabulous spot and our chosen location for our Windwise Freeride sessions!
Sotavento is known for flat blue water, fast blasting summer trade winds, great Canarian food and local adventures, last year were had a fabulous trip and we're really looking forward to returning again. We use the new Club Mistral windsurfing centre, which is packed with great kit in the best part of this massive bay!
Sotavento offers a fast, fun, windy Freeride destination that will add real zip to your windsurfing. Off the water you'll get a taste sensation with fresh tapas and fresh Canarian cuisine, plus the renowned WINDWISE location guiding and adventures.

Who's it for?
Our Sotavento windsurfing holiday & clinic is aimed at intermediate windsurfers looking to move their shorter board windsurfing onto another level. Whether that's moving onto even smaller boards, blasting faster in more control or really wanting to speed up those turns, 'Fuerta' is an exciting and easy place to place to sail. Flat water is similar to Egypt, but with slightly more variation in conditions and water state, with a huge lagoon at high spring tides or flat water blasting behind the sand bar. It's a great place to get inspired, try new moves and.... with WINDWISE, give your windsurfing that accelerated progression!
During the week we'll cover, super early planing, sailing at higher speeds, stance range, quick short board tacks, gybe variations, duck gybes, 360's and other feasible freestyle. Plus we will have a whole bunch of fun expression sessions to move your sailing along. As ever using our core WINDWISE skills training to get the body to do what you mind is telling it! If we get the chance we'll do some speed runs too!
Other Holiday Highlights
After a full day of coaching, we will give you optional socials, adventures, safari's and check out some special places on this popular Canarian island. with WINDWISE you get local knowledge and contacts, the best possible coaching and full guiding through your whole trip.

Kit & Conditions
Mostly flat water and sometimes a huge lagoon at Spring high tides, the sailing area stretches across a massive bay with cross offshore winds producing a speed strip that will enable you to set your personal best time! We don't like wind stats, because it's so easy for centres to be romantic with the truth. But we go in July because our local feedback and knowledge tells us that July is the best time of year...!
Were using the new ION Club centre which is packed full of Fanatic/North.
Boards between 80-120L
Cross offshore, flat water, occasional shore break and lagoon at high spring tides.
Check out the photos of what to expect!

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself. Windsurfing is, potentially, a dangerous sport and you must agree to sail in a responsible manner and in the designated areas outlined to you in resort.
In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday and adventure will still go ahead and another Windwise coach will be provided for you.
