Windsurfing Techniques

I will be coaching through the use of simulators, on-water coaching, pictures and video coaching. The course content will be relevant to the ability level for that week and individual needs.

  • Waterstarts: Learning and improving. Beachstarts - getting deeper and ready to waterstart
  • Stance: Getting in the straps, sailing faster, up and downwind.
  • Carve Gybes: For first time gybers to improve to get that elusive planing gybe.
  • Tacking: Nailing this useful and fundamental skill.
  • Freestyle: Introduction and improvement in lots of new and useful tricks
  • Chop Hops. Experience some airtime

Your Ability

  • Intermediates - to get the best out of this clinic participants will need to be blasting in the harness and footstraps, waterstarting and attempting, or getting round, some carve gybes.
  • Improvers - to get the best out of this clinic participants will need to be in the harness and close to getting in the footstraps, beach starting, trying waterstarts and looking to improve both tacks and light wind gybes.

Accommodation and Food

Shepherds (Toucan) Inn is a privately owned, stylish boutique lodge in Crowne Point Tobago. Just 5 minutes drive from the windsurfing and kitesurfing centre at Pidgeon Point.
