In 2018 winter I am running an amazing windsurf coaching clinic in Jeri, Brazil. If you wish to improve your carve gybes, tacks, jumps, forward loops, waveriding and all-round wavesailing skills at this great venue then please book early, as this trip fills fast.
Stance – plane early, sail faster and fly upwind
Carve gybes – from improving to fully planing
Tacking – nailing this useful and fundamental skill
Jumping and Looping - get up, fly and land and some rotation to if you are up for that!
Freestyle – introduction and improvement in lots of new and useful tricks
Waves - get out, get in, wave selection and riding, composed airtime and loops should you want them
I will be coaching through use of simulators, on-water coaching and video coaching. Please feel free to give me feedback on how it is going for YOU at any time so I can give you the best opportunity to develop.
Your windsurfing ability
To get the best out of this clinic participants will need to be sailing sub 100 litre boards in strong winds and open seas and be making some of your gybes competently!
Pousada Ponta da Pedra right on the front next to Club Dos Ventos. Sportif will advise you of the prices for these on application.
Boards: JP, Starboard and now lighter Pro package boards are there!
Sails: Neil Pryde sails - Pro package of X6 lighter masts and booms!
When booking your board through Sportif I recommend discussing your requirements with me.
Wind: very very reliable trades, cross to cross off from the right, Force 4 – 6. Water state: Jeri - Small easy going waves and pretty damn flat at low tide. Other sailing areas up and downwind. Seriously warm water with a more punchy cross on break upwind and a side off break downwind at the dunes fro mid to high tide.
The combo of reliable strong wind, combo of water states and easy waves make these places ideal to up your level and improve your wavesailing, freestyle and looping! Progression and a huge amount of sailing time are as near as guaranteed.
The social will revolve around us meeting up for some well-earned pre-dinner drinks and then having dinner together in one of the fine and varied local restaurants. Sundowners at the Club Dos Ventos are stunning. It is all pretty relaxed and we have some great chat and share a good laugh at our daily stunts.
The flight is from London Heathrow with Air Portugal and takes approx 12 hours with a stop over in Lisbon. The airport in Lisbon is a TAP hub and many other flights can get you to here to meet the afternoon Lisbon to Fortaleza, Brazil leg.
A veritable smorgasbord of other activities including horse riding, surfing, SUPing and some fantastic local excursions.
