What´s the origin of the surfers sign? As a (beginner) surfer you might have noticed this hand-sign that people do towards each other when they are out on the water surfing. This sign you make with your pinky finger and your thumb and is called the ´Shaka´. Who invented this sign and why does everyone use it? The Shaka-sign is also called ´Hang-loose´. You can use this sign to show others on the water that you are stoked, to say ´hi´. From Hawaii this sign has been spreading worldwide by surfers who traveled the world. All surfers know this sign and salute each other with it. In Hawaii this sign is used in a lot of different ways, not only on the water. It can be used to say ´cool´, or even ´thanks´. It is a sign of appreciation. A sign of showing love to the other person, like the word ´Aloha´ means in Hawaiian. How to make this sign? It may look easy, which it also is. Hold your hand in loose fit. Then extend your thumb and pinky finger in opposite directions. The back of your hand should face the recipient of the gesture. So the inside of […]

Summer vs wintersurf on Fuerteventura

The difference in surf between summer and wintertime Fuerteventura means ´Strong wind´. Because there is mostly a quite strong wind on the island, it is known for its wind- and kitesurfing. It also has a lot of beaches for normal surf. The best groundswell you will find is from october until april, so that´s wintertime on Fuerte. But even then sometimes it can be flat. A wetsuit is recommended and also take a sweater, long pants and socks after Sunset surf, it can be chilly from December on. Whenever the surf report says flat, the best chance you will get is the beach ´Esquinzo´. Esquinzo lays in a Canyon and is therefore very consistent with its waves. It has a beach break and is best surfable during low tide, or coming into low. Surfing there yesterday at 18:00 and this morning at 8:00 was great. Be aware that you do have to climb your way down into the canyon, so save a little of energy after surf to be climbing your way back up again. Esquinzo you can reach through El Cotillo or you can take an exit before El Cotillo at El Roque. It will take you over a […]
