A quick but exciting update here to tell you that for the upcoming Kitesurf Ocean Confidence Course on 13th-14th July at Watergate Bay, Cornwall, I have teamed up with my very good friend and world class kitesurfer Will Bennet.
Will Bennet is a bona fide pioneer in surfkiting and was probably the first rider in the UK to start boosting and landing legitimate strapless aerials. He gained international attention by being the first guy to get slotted at One Eye in Mauritius, a wave that till Will turned up, people thought could only be ridden with straps on the board.
Because this course is running in beautiful sunny July, we’ll be cutting back a bit on the stuff that deals with coping with survival in overhead surf and other heavy scenarios, and really upping the tempo on technique and perfecting your riding in surf.
As always, the course is open ended – meaning that we can cover a broad skill base so those wanting to get off of the twinnies once and for all can learn the basics of stance and switching feet, whilst the more seasoned riders can discover the secrets of a 12 o’clock backhand smack or huge frontside air.
Once again the course will be run from the executive training suite at the stunning Living Space at Watergate Bay Hotel. Here, we can run through the essential theory elements in air conditioned comfort away from distractions, and a hot latte is never far away.
This is a theory based course with practical elements. Regardless of wind, the course will run and there will be two water based elements that will get your blood pumping. Because you will already be up and riding and attempting the stuff we’re talking about, presentation and visual aids will give you the tools you need to get it all clear in your head for the next time you ride. If there is wind, for sure we ride, but the emphasis here is on feeding you with information and unravelling any puzzles you may have.
Will and I are really excited to be running this course, I feel it will be THE surfkite performance course of the season. We look forward to seeing you come and join us for a rockin’ weekend in The Kernow!
£160 per person
Intermediate + (don’t hesitate to enquire about skill level requirements, basically you need to be able to ride independently, and have a thirst for riding waves at any level!)
