EL MEDANO, TENERIFE 2017
INTRO WAVES AND JUMPING CONTROL
WINDSURFCOACHING WITH COLIN DIXON AND GUEST COACHES: MARCO WEDELE AND LUKE BAILLIE
El Medano is a charming village with a real surfy, laidback atmosphere, great food and most importantly epic sailing. It is an extremely popular windsurfing destination and it’s not hard to see why, there are 3 sailing spots catering for different abilities from learning to wave sail up to throwing aerials and big loops. Launching and sailing off the main beach offers a great teaching area and playground for those learning to launch and get comfortable in the waves, the harbour wall provides a step up and some good wave riding and jumping, then Cabezo beach just around the corner is a little more extreme and even hosts a PWA wave event during the summer months.
We coach 6 days out of 7, with a day off depending on the forecast and transfer.
We will be on the water as much as possible and if not sailing or refueling you will be soaking up the WindSurfCoaching Jedi knowledge.
The bonus is we have two coaches, Colin and the Guest coach, this means that we can split the group into different abilities so we can go where the group desires and where suits each level.
The level we ask for to join the clinic is ‘water starting and sailing in both foot straps’. We can help you with getting faster, starting in waves, building confidence in the waves, first jumps and all the way up to cracking your first loops, forwards and backwards. For those looking to improve their wave sailing ability we can guide you with timing on the wave right through to your first real smacks.
We will be doing several video sessions, as we believe this is the best way for us to show you how you look on the water and where you can improve. Please bring a USB stick or a hard drive so you can take the footage home.
We will also show you the town of El Medano as we know it, take you to all of our favourite places to eat and drink and enjoy the company of the other guests.
We hire equipment at Tenerife Windsurf Solution (TWS) Playa Sur, El Medano. We use this centre because they offer over seven different brands using the latest gear all with the right carbon masts and carbon booms. It makes our job as coaches a lot easier. It means us and you can not blame the kit!
