THE 2024 SPRING CAMPS ARE BACK
For the last 4 years I have been running multiple camps in my home town El Médano, Tenerife which provides perfect conditions for several disciplines.
Each masterclass is based around a topic with the goal to have as many people possible from similar level learning together in improving their skills on the water.
Clinic dates are based on tides & the best periods of the year to get the most chances for wind & waves.
The 2 most common subject I cover are
- Intro into Wave
- Advanced Wave
For spring I will focus on Intro into Wave based around the low tides in March
INTRO INTO WAVE CLASSES
03 - 09 March
17 - 22 March (together with Tony Frey)
The intro into wave Masterclass is there for all those that want to step from the lake to the sea or want to improve their wave riding & jumping in the easy going conditions of the bay of el medano in front of TWS & the harbour wall which offers more side shore wave riding conditions in a safe environment.
This all under the concept of 4 days off coaching out of a 6 day window to choose the best days of the forecast.

HOW DOES THE WEEK LOOK LIKE
DAY 1: Introduction day + group sailing session.
Everyone meets together at the TWS Center around 10.00 a.m. to get an introduction of the spot, a look at the forecast & determine the goals of the week.
There will be a short theory lesson followed by a group sailing session to get a feeling for everyone’s level & adjust goals where needed.
First pointers will be given & notice points for the following day will be given.
In case of no wind on the first day we will start dig further into theory on the beach with the simulator to set everyone up for the windy days.
The 2,3 & 4th day: coaching on & off the water.
In general, on the windy days, we will be doing max. 2 sessions on the water each day from roughly 1,5 hours/2 hours each. This very much depending on the conditions at hand & how participants feel like. It’s not mandatory to attend all sessions, since I know it’s your holiday as well!
During atleast 1 of the 2 sessions I will be filming from the beach (most likely the first one) & giving signals to come to the beach and give a quick debriefing/feedback on the sailing.
At midday, where possible we will do a quick video analysis (key clips) followed by a second session where depending on the conditions I will join on the water or do extra filming with short break on the beach for extra feedback.
In the evening I will sort out all the footage and upload on a dropbox.
The following morning we will run through all the key clips& set up goals for the day.
IN CASE OF NO WIND - We will focus more on theory and land similation. There is always a lot to learn even on the days without wind!
In case of lighter winds (non planning winds) we will still hit the water to run light wind excersizes.
