We will be staying at the RIU Coral hotel, a fantastic retreat that will accommodate singles, partners and families in style. Fabulous breakfasts and delicious evening meals are included, and you can choose from a variety of different cuisines. I will be organising group meals or you can take some time out and do your own thing, its your holiday. This place is very accomadating if you are travelling with a non-sailing partner or your family. Pure luxury in a stunning location with excellent facilities and lots to do.
The windsurfing in Mauritius has absolutely everything you could need: flat water on the inside and a variety of different wave breaks will give you the opportunity to choose your playground. From gybing to wavesailing you are sure to progress whilst windsurfing in Mauritius and enjoying all the luxuries of the Newly Refurbished Rui Le Morne Hotel.
Stance – earlier planing, improved upwind sailing and full speed in total control
Carve gybes – improving and working towards that elusive planing gybe.
Tacking – nailing this useful and fundamental skill
Freestyle – introduction and improvement to lots of new and useful tricks
Jumping – experience your first airtime, getting higher and try rotating if you’re so inclined.
Wavesailing - The waves on the reef give you a great opportunity to develop your getting out skills, wave selection and waveriding skills. From cross on and small to down the line and full speed frontside its all here -with the warm water, safety cover and Jem's watchful eye giving you the confidence to push it that bit harder.
The coaching - 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
Advanced Intermediates - to get the best out of this clinic participants will need to be fully blasting in the harness and footstraps, waterstarting and be getting round some carve gybes.
Advanced - the the sky is the limit. For the budding wave sailors you should be able to sail a short board competently, and have done plenty of coastal sailing. Your gybes will be fairly consistent and you will have sailed in strong winds with total waterstart confidence.
Boards - Mistral and Fanatic
Sails - North Sails
You can also discuss with Sportif and my self the option of bringing your own kit which will incur you excess luggage on the flight. Some people just like to use their own much valued toys!
When booking your board through Sportif I recommend the below boards or a suitable alternative:
Advanced intermediates - Fanatic FREEWAVES according to your weight.
Lighter/more advanced people – Smaller FreeWaves or Twins, Skates
Side shore from the left giving flat water plus a variety of different wave breaks offering everything including bump and jump, small waves and world class wave sailing. A veritable skate park, flat water downwind, small waves / bump n jump in front of the centre. Out to little reef for cross on waves and some jumping & riding our out to the legendary Manawa for smooth cross off down the line pure frontside joy. Winds are great for progressing from 5.8 to 4.7 weather and average 70% planing days over last 3 clinics!
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 restaurants.
A huge range of other available activities around the Hotel.
