About

Víctor Fernández López, born in El Ejido, Almería. With just four years of age Víctor had his first windsurfing experience at the beach of Almerimar with his father José Fernández. At the age of 14 his father allowed him to spend the summer in Pozo Izquierdo (Gran Canaria) as a reward for his good grades. There he started his professional career at the windsurfing world to become PWA Wave World Champion in 2010 - his biggest achievement so far. Victor is one of the - if not THE - most complete wave sailors in the world and has an incredible record of event wins and podium finishes in the PWA Wave World Tour. With four Vice World Champion titles on his belt, he's hungry for World Title number two.

When do you use the Quad and how do you setup the board?

I use Quads in strong onshore winds and light side to side offshore down the line. I put the base further back compared to my thruster boards and my stance is a bit wider too. In strong onshore the Quad sits lower and I have more control over the chop. In light wind I love the Quad because I get more grip and speed out of my turns and I can be closer to the sections of the wave with more confidence.

What’s the right day for the Stubby – where do you place fins, straps and mast foot on this board?

My favorite all around board. I like it specially when the conditions are not so good and if the wind is not so strong. I can make good turns in bad waves and I love the skate feeling as I think this is the best thing of the Stubby. I use my mast foot in the middle of the track, I place my middle fin and side fins in the middle of the boxes and I use my back strap all the way back and my front straps all the way forward.

In which conditions do you ride the TriWave and what are your preferred settings?

It's probably my favorite board for jumping. It's the easiest one and the fastest of all three radical wave shapes. Base a bit more forward compared to the Quad, middle and side fins in the middle of the box.
