The windsurfing action
During the week I will be assisting you in developing all aspects of your wavesailing. You will improve in your riding through better wave selection, gaining more speed, making more vertical radical turns and improved positional awareness. If you are less experienced in waves then I will demonstrate efficient and safe ways of launching and getting out the back and of course getting you back in safely, then we will work towards better airtime and catching waves more effectively. Baja goes off and we will be sailing at one of the world’s easiest and most consistent beaches for DTL wavesailing. PSC, Baja has season long wind and waves and we scored 6/7 last year and 12/14 for those who went for 2 weeks. 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
For this Baja clinic, you should be able to sail a short board competently, and have done plenty of coastal sailing with some experience in waves. Your gybes will be fairly consistent and being able to tack will be a bonus, and you will have sailed in strong winds with total waterstart confidence.
2018 Ezzy Elite, Zeta and Taka 3 wave sails rigged on Ezzy carbon masts, Goya sails rigged on Goya masts and Streamlined Carbon booms. (£RRP 599!) 2015 - 2017 boards from RRD, Quatro and Goya and they will have tri fins, twinzers and quads there. They have over 75 boards from these brands in both older and current models, which are available to the whole camp of 20 people max. You will need a harness, spring steamer 4/3 wetsuit and boots/shoes, if you so wish. I recommend you bring your own long lines, or you prefferred lines for familiarity.
The social here is made by all the people in the camp and our fine hosts Solosports who are great characters and extremely welcoming and funny. Having a sun downer and reflecting on the possibly one of the best sails of your life is a great feeling and the bar is manned by YOU or anybody who wishes to be bar person that night, drink as much or as little as you like and wind down from a great day in the ocean and / or on the MTB’S.
