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.
2019 Ezzy Elite, Zeta and Taka 5 wave sails rigged on Ezzy carbon masts, Goya sails rigged on Goya masts and Streamlined Carbon booms. (£RRP 599!) 2016 - 2019 boards from RRD, Quatro and Goya and they will have tri fins, Fsws 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 (May) or 3/2 Long arm suit (September) 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.

Essentially it is a Friday night into San Diego for the night before your clinic / trip, ie Aug 30, Sept 6, Sept 13.
Saturday night (after 20.00 is pretty safe!) or Sunday flight out of San Diego back to your home
The small propeller plane return flights run on Saturdays. Leaving around 10.30 from San Diego Brownfield Airport and Returning North to San Diego, from Psc, around 13-14.00
You will need to book an overnight hotel on the Friday before your trip. Do it early as they sell out!
You will need to arrange your own transport from your Friday night hotel. Joe Ruiz serves many for this and I can hook you up with him
Many groups use the Westin Gas Lamp and I can help co-ordinate room shares to save $$$
Some stay nearer to Brownfield airport (San Diego to Psc rtn airport). I recommend stretching your legs and seeing San Diego if you can and being in the Gas Lamp area. It will help with the Jet Lag and it is FUN
Surfing and stand up paddle boarding are world class in PSC, Baja and included in the price. It can be a beautiful start or end to a day and teaches you a great deal about waves.
Awesome Mountain biking with specially built routes and easy to use route cards and guided rides are often available. You can use the centres top of the range downhill machines.
