Simon Winkley, our very own ‘Fundamentals’ technique writer, has the following overseas clinics for 2020:
Costa Teguise, Lanzarote: 16-23 March 2020
Level: Adventurous intermediates and advanced
Lively yet with chilled vibes, Costa Teguise offers a dynamic windsurfing experience with flat water inside the bay and awesome yet easy swell on the outside. A perfect location to step up a gear, to tweak and re-define your windsurfing and to get into the lumpy stuff. There’s loads of great kit and top-notch service from Windsurfing Club Las Cucharas.
Alaçati, Turkey: 30 June – 7 July 2020
Level: Intermediates and advanced
Alaçati Surf Paradise Club is a large, super-relaxed centre with stacks of great kit, high levels of service and an awesome sailing area with plenty of clear, shallow water to stand up in and deeper stuff further out. It’s an incredible freeride location – fantastic for working on flat-water core skills and blasting around.
With bookings through the friendly team at Sportif Travel, these clinics have been carefully put together to provide a solid learning platform in great locations with the best prospect of consistent planing winds. Evenings will be chilled with great dining and socials.
Simon’s coaching weeks are ideal for regular participants as well as holiday windsurfers or those who have been away from the sport for a while. The coaching includes kit setup, harness, footstraps, speed control, tacking, carve gybes and variations, beachstarts and waterstarts, chop hops, jumps, non-planing freestyle and more.
Use of GoPros with Flymounts, K4 Harness Mounts and head mounts comes as standard as well as video coaching and DSLR stills.
Simon brings over 20 years professional experience and is a RYA Trainer (of instructors). His coaching will arm you with all the right ingredients for further improvements long after the holiday is over. Your time on and off the water will be fun and the memories will keep you going until the next trip!
