January  Fuerteventura  2019.. Surf days 1425
Fly to Fuerte 19 January. Stay at Maradentro , right at the beach, in front of Rocky point. Join surf school Homegrown, very good. Rented a board from Homegrown. A good epoxy 9.2. Surfed alone 3 days and with surf school 4 days.
Did some sight seeing with rental car as well.
Weather was cool, with quite a bit of cloud. However when sun came out, people were on the beach.
Rocky point best with 1.5 meter and 300 KJ. I should have rented a car all the time with roof rack or brought a soft rack.
Ended up with a bad lumbago, but lucky me 3 days before fly home, enough days to almost complete recover. Thanks to Vegan?? Next year a full month with more people !!
