Jeri Brazil 21 Nov-10 Dec 2024

Run By : Jem Hall Windsurf Clinics

The 2024 Jem Hall windsurfing clinic pro coaching holiday to Brazil at the world class windsurfing venue of Jericoacoara in November and December is now taking pre bookings. For intermediate to advanced windsurfers wishing to work on a range of techniques to improve your your stance, gybes, transitions, freestyle and all round wave sailing skills plus jumping, freestyle, and  manoeuvres including 360s, vulcans, spock and the elusive forward loop for those ready and willing!

Course details
With a group of 10 windsurfers of similar ability you will be able to enjoy one to one coaching with Jem and enjoy the company of a holiday focussed on getting you windsurfing and wave sailing to the max. There's time for relaxing off the water too and enjoy the laid back lifestyle and infamous nightlife in Jeri.

Throughout this 9 night, 7 day clinic, 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 earlier planing, faster sailing, both up and downwind, better control.
Tacking ­Nailing 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.
Waves Get out, get in, wave selection, riding with style.
Jumping­ Experience your first air time, try some forwards, learn to Vulcan or any other stunts you fancy.

Typical Course Level
Intermediate to Advanced
To get the best out of this clinic you will need to be sailing sub 100 litre boards in strong winds and open seas and be making some of your gybes competently! Jem will demonstrate and teach a range of moves from 360s to loops, vulcans to spocks. Ideally you should be sailing sub 100 L boards in strong winds and open seas making some of your gybe competently.

The Conditions
Very very reliable trades, cross to cross off from the right, Force 4 – 6.The combo of reliable strong wind, water states and easy going waves make these places ideal to up your level, improve your wavesailing, freestyle and looping! Progression and a huge amount of sailing time are as near as guaranteed.

Jem says "Jeri - Small easy going waves and pretty damn flat at low tide. Other sailing areas up and downwind. Seriously warm water with a more punchy cross on break upwind and a side off break downwind at the dunes from mid to high tide."
