Lanzarote 22-29 March 2022

Run By : Simon Winkley Windsurf Clinics

The 2022 Simon Winkley Pro Coaching week to Costa Teguise, Lanzarote, takes place in the beautiful, volcanic Canary Islands.

Experience a protected bay, offering an assortment of possible conditions, suitable for a range of abilities from flat water to wind chop to well-spaced rolling swells on the outside. Here you can work on an array of core skills and, if the conditions are right, maybe experience gentle riding and jumps as small waves are created on the outer reef. This will be an incredible week of intermediate to early-advanced coaching with typically strong cross-shore wind in a fantastic windsurfing location. 

You will be able to focus on real-world core skills to include getting up to speed, harness and foot straps, tacks, gybes, carving skills, confidence-boosting and more. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment!

Course Details
Simon will be making use of simulators and shore-based learning to support the on-water sessions, where the good stuff happens. Coaching includes use of GoPros with both Flymount mast/boom mounts and head mounts, video coaching and DSLR bursts to help to look closely at your technique. Expect to work as hard as you like on the water and to enjoy relaxing at all other times with fun, chilled evening socials.
The course content will be tailored to suit the ability of the group/individual but generally covers:

• Kit set up and tuning.
• Harness, foot straps, getting going, planing and speed control.
• Beach starts and water starts including variations.
• Faster tacks, heli-tacks.
• Non-planing gybes and carve gybes plus variants.
• More advanced carving skills.
• Simple, fun freestyle (to support other core moves).
• Chop hops and possibly jumps and a little riding of the swells on the outside if the conditions are right.
• Confidence building at every turn!

Typical Course Level
Intermediates to Advanced
To benefit from this clinic you should ideally be at least an adventurous intermediate at the level of attempting/progressing water starts and developing your planing in the harness and foot straps. At the higher end, even if you’re water starting, blasting and developing carve gybes, then there will be loads of improvements that Simon can help you with as well as new ideas and moves to try – including chop hops, jumps and riding the outer swells if conditions are 

The Conditions
Lanzarote is ideal for this camp, being located in the middle of the crescent-shaped pure sandy bay of Las Cucharas and surrounded by beach and shore on all sides, with flat water in the bay perfect for practising skills and technique before heading out. The NE trade winds are normally side shore from the left. Winds are light on the inside of the bay and increase in strength. Once out of the bay, after approximately 500m, the outer reef offers some breaking waves, with little power and lots of space between the waves. This spot offers a great combination of conditions allowing you to practice a variety of techniques.
