Since more than a month i´m in Fuerteventura now. I stay in a house of a mate in Costa Calma, next to the Sotavento Beach, where the René-Egli Center is located.
The Island is quite bleak if you don´t like Watersports or hanging around on the beach. The crisis in Egypt/Tunisia brought the Tourism here on the Island up to 40 % more Tourists…
Watersports-Activities offers the Island a lot… Here are a few good spot´s for Kitesurfing, like the Sotavento Beach.. It´s quite gusty, blows side-off and can be crowded but if you just ride a bit Downwind from all the trouble you are fine.. Ah i forget to tell that it´s choppy as well Okay, sounds not like the perfect spot, but there are not so many alternatives in the south..
If it´s not windy you can go to La Pared for catching some waves there. It´s an epic spot with sometimes some really nice waves.. I´m still learning surfing but i had already some good fun.. But i´m practicing in the low wind days more the stand up paddling at the moment which is just perfect for me to train balance and stay in shape.
I also started to do some Windsurfing and i like it.. Riding and normal jibes without losing heigh are already working..
Since i´m here i was every day in the water to do some sports – doesn´t matter which kind of activity, it´s just good to be outside in the sun and enjoy the fresh air
Yesterday Roger from www.spot-shot.com did some pictures. A special thanks to him – if you are on the island, call him if you want some good pictures in action..

After seven month´s of traveling i´m heading in less than two weeks back to Kiel.
It will be strange for sure..
