Good info. I am also looking for a good holiday foil spot near or in Europe during November/begin December.
Still a few questions:
What is the best spot for foiling in Fuerte?
What about the rocks? Should be shallow on quite a few spots and easily to damage your foil on.
Do you need a car or can you stay in one place?
Today on flag beach in Fuerteventura was mad, crazy wind, could not get the foil through the shore break,dead onshore, had to go out on twintip, everyone abandoned the beach due to sand blasting, apart from the guys on the water.
There are many hard core spots on Fuerteventura but after trying some and walking away from some quite nasty spots I think Flag beach comes out on top as the best option, yes you need to do your homework on the spot, low tide can be rocky and you need to take advise on where to enter the water, there are a few good deep channels to get out to the deep water without drama, but enter like a fool and you will regret it. This is not a flat water spot, but once you get used to it,it's brilliant for improving your open sea water skills, good rescue back up is a must from the guys at the water sports centre on the beach.
You don't need a car, but it's worth having one if you want to look around, I have all my kit stored for 7 months of the year at the kite centre ( twintip and foil),this makes things so much easier for me to get to the island every 5-6 weeks in winter, and so much cheaper than sports equipment charges, and of course no large car needed from the airport.
I stay at the Rui- (tres island hotel) on the beach, 300yard walk to the kite centre.
