Prasonisi 22 - 29 June 2016
Run By : Jem Hall Windsurf Clinics
New 2016 Jem Hall windsurfing clinic Jem returns with his windsurfing pro coaching week to the amazing freeride windsurfing venue at Prasonisi on the beautiful Greek Island of Rhodes. This week is for intermediate to advanced windsurfers wishing to work on a range of technicques to improve stance, early planing, sailing faster, tacking and will guarantee a definite performance boost to your carve gybes. Freestyle moves, jumping and looping also included for those ready and willing!
Jem will be coaching through the use of simulators, on-water coaching and video coaching. The course content will be relevant to the ability level for that week and individual needs but generally covers:
► Stance Early planing, faster sailing, both up and downwind, getting control.
► Tacking Learning and improving this very useful and fundamental skill.
► Carve Gybes From improving your turns to getting that elusive planing gybe.
► Freestyle Introduction and improving with lots of new and useful tricks.
► Jumping Experience your first air time, try some forwards, learn to Vulcan or any other stunts you fancy .
Typical Course Level
Intermediates to Advanced
To get the best out of this clinic, intermediates should be fully blasting in the harness and footstraps, water starting and attempting carve gybes. If you are advanced then the sky's the limit. Jem will demonstrate and teach a range of moves from 360s to loops, vulcans to spocks.
Wind in Greece is very consistent with Jem's Prasonisi dates having an average of 5 days out of 7 as planing days over the last 7 years. Prasonisi offers the choice from cross-off from the right with the very reliable Meltemi getting a local boost to give us flat water and chop, or, a short sail upwind, there is also a cross onshore beach giving small waves to practice on or get into bump and jump/wavesailing.
Jem says "This place almost seems designed to help you improve whilst giving you an awesome range of windsurfing conditions."

Here are Jems 's review on the facilities and tips for travel to Prasonisi:
Lighthouse Hotel, Prasonisi
We will be staying at the very hospitable and friendly Hotel Lighthouse. There is a further option of staying in the more comfortable Lighthouse II with Air-conditioning and TV, a short walk way. The package is half board with a generous breakfast and evening meal available. Wireless is now available in the taverna and down at the windsurf centre. More >
The social will revolve around us meeting up for some pre-dinner drinks and then having dinner together in the restaurant, where we may peruse the days video action. There will be a mid-week option of an evening out to the beautiful town of Lindos, with its roof-top restaurants and stylish bars. It is all pretty relaxed and we have some great chat and share a good laugh at our daily stunts.
Airport: Gatwick/Rhodes - approximately 4 hours
(regional flights available)
Transfer: approximately 1 hour.
If it’s like last year, we can get a sail either on the final morning or first afternoon giving us that magic 7 days possible water time!
It is a very high quality Pro Centre with very friendly and helpful staff, with JP boards that are powered along by Neil Pryde sails. When booking your board with Sportif I recommend the below boards or a suitable alternative.

Lighter or more Advanced windsurfers: JP Freestyle waves 101 or the 93, Freestyle 100 (medium weights, heavy weights on the 106) and 90 for the lighter riders, Magic ride 104.
Freestylers & Loopers : Freestyle 100 (medium weights) or the 106 for bigger riders or 111 / 101 FSW.
Should your aching limbs need any other action then there is Volleyball and some fantastic walks, or take a drive round the island. Bookings can be made locally for any other excursions should you require and the centre now has some SUPs for hire.
See you on the water! Jem
