MINIMUM WINDSURFING SKILLS NEEDED:

You need to be able to ride up wind in the harness on the board without a dagger and make beach start. Ideal if you have experienced planning already, if not than very soon you will.
Eventprice only: 600.-€, max. 10 participants/min. 4.

BOARDS AND EXTRAS:

You should reserve a board that you feel comfortable with in terms of the volume. The choice is between: Geko, Skate of Freewave. We might end up using various other boards like Viper or SUP, depending on the content of the class or conditions. Harness lines are the most essential factor of your comfort and you must have them long. Still using short lines? Soon you’ll say “Good Bye” to them. Ideal if you bring your own lines. Sizes between 30” – 36”. You can contact Kuba directly if you need any assistance in terms of your choice.

TRAINING:

  1. Trim your gear accordingly to the conditions and set it up properly – that’s the first thing you are going to learn.  If your tool is working fine, you have much bigger chances to do the job!
  2. Comfortable sailing position and efficient up-wind ridding comes next. The essentials are: Stance – light and free, Sail – light and powerful, Board – light and maneuverable
  3. Once you fully understand those principals and can apply them in your riding, getting in the footstraps shouldn`t be a problem.
  4. Waterstart is an essential skill that sooner or later you will have to work on. Good thing is that by now you are ready for it.
  5. Next step is blasting! Control your speed and learn how to go fast.
  6. If you got to this point it means that carve jibe is within your reach. Let`s do it!
  7. Coaching will be held on the beach (discussions, simulations, video analysis and sail exercises), on the water (sailing together, demonstration, filming from the water)
  8. Daily subject will vary depending on the conditions. We might end up doing jibes, tacks or light wind freestyle moves in the lagoon, wind SUP riding on baby waves , SUP or surf in case of no wind.

PLAN OF THE DAY:

09.15 – meeting on the beach + short warm up

10.00 – training on the water/beach

12.00 – lunch break

13.30 – training on the water/ expression session and filming

WINDSURFING SKILLS NEEDED:

You must be confident with your waterstarting in strong winds as well as in underpowered conditions. Be able to plane in both footsrtaps on a board max. 20l above your body weight (80kg = max. 100l board) Carve through minimum 50% of your jibes, another 50% we will add in Mauritius. Don’t worry too much about your shortboard tack, Kuba will guide you through it. Eventprice only: 600.-€, max. 10 participants/min. 4.

BOARDS AND EXTRAS:

1 Week Windsurf rental: 225.- €

You should reserve a wave board up to 20l above your body weight ( 70kg = max. 90l, ideal 82l if your ability allows you). Best choices are wave boards (Grip, TriWave) or less ideal but more forgiving FreeWave. We might end up using various other boards like Viper, Skate, Stubby or SUP, depending on the content of the class or conditions. Harness lines are the most essential factor of your comfort and you must have them long. Still using short lines? Soon you’ll say goodby to them. Ideal if you bring your own lines. Sizes between 30” – 36”. You can contact Kuba if you need any assistance in terms of your choice.

TRAINING:

  1. Trim your gear accordingly to the conditions and set it up properly – that’s the first thing you are going to learn.  If your tool is working fine, you have much bigger chances to do the job!
  2. Comfortable sailing position and efficient up-wind ridding comes next. The essentials are: Stance – light and free, Sail – light and powerful, Board – light and maneuverable
  3. Once you fully understand those principals and can apply them in your riding, we will shift our attention to mastering your carve jibes and short board tacks. This by now should become much easier.
  4. Wave training will be focused on understanding the safety on the line up, ways of behavior in critical situations, reading the conditions and correct positioning.
  5. Once you are safe out there than we can start thinking about bottom turning, cut backs, aerials and whatever you dream of.
  6. Coaching will be held on the beach (discussions, simulations, video analysis and sail exercises), on the water (sailing together, demonstration, semi-individual wave coaching session with Bb talking Bluetooth communication system, filming from the water)
  7. Daily subject will vary depending on the wave and wind conditions. We might end up doing jibes, tacks or freestyle moves in the lagoon, jumps and loops in the channel, wave riding on Small Reef or Manawa, SUP or surf in case of no wind.

SOCIAL:

Windsurfers do love talking about windsurfing. I think that it’s a quite common thing about all of us. To satisfy that need, we will explore some of the local restaurants. Get our mouths on fire with local spices, drink some delicious Rum, listen and dance to Mauritian Sega rhythms, swim with dolphins and maybe jump from the waterfall. Of course windsurfing comes first and all of those additional possibilities depend on your interest and level of fatigue after a radical day on the water.

PLAN OF THE DAY:

  • 09.15 – meeting on the beach, short warm up + visualization
  • 10.00 – training on the water/beach
  • 12.00 – lunch break
  • 13.30 – training on the water
  • 16.30 – conclusions from the day
