Tobago 05 & 12 February 2019

Run By : Jem Hall Windsurf Clinics

New 2019 Tobago Jem Hall windsurfing clinics, to the amazing Pidgeon point beach on this stunning Caribbean island, in the southern Caribbean sea, are designed for intermediate to advanced windsurfers.

If you wish to enhance your stance, starts, gybes, transitions, basic freestyle, jumping and all-round sailing skills at this great venue then please book early as these sell out super fast each year.


Course details
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:

Waterstarts­ Learning and improving.
Stance­ Getting in the straps, sailing faster, up and downwind.
Carve Gybes­ For first time gybers to improve to get that elusive planing gybe.
Tacking ­Nailing this useful and fundamental skill.
Freestyle ­ Introduction and improvement in lots of new and useful tricks
Jumping ­Experience your first airtime and get into some bigger jumps on the rolling swell.


Typical Course Level
Improvers and Intermediates, up to Advanced
To get the best out of this clinic, participants will need to be sailing in or near the footstraps, be committed to the harness, be making some deep water beach starts and be waterstarting or as close to it as possible. All moves can be worked on for the advanced riders.

 


The Conditions

On a good day, mainly from December through to June, the conditions are some of the finest in the Caribbean. The windsurfing launch is from the Pigeon Point National park. It is protected by Bucco Reef which lies up to one and half miles off one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Inside the vast lagoon, the flat, crystal clear, shallow water is a sailor's dream. Outside the reef there is some chop. The wind is steady side shore from the left making it easy to tack out and return.


The Centre
Located on an idyllic white sand beach this is Caribbean paradise with swaying palms, cooling steady trade breezes. The Fanatic centre provides the latest boards with a range of sizes and sails. It is minutes to walk across the sandy to launch. As a protected national park, Pidgeon Point has no hotels just palm trees and a bar serving snacks to keep refreshed off the water. At the end of the day, relax over a cocktail and watch the setting sun.

The Social
The centre and is set on the idyllic protected national park of Pidgeon Point with no hotels just palm trees and a bar serving snacks to keep refreshed off the water. At the end of the day, relax over a cocktail and watch the setting sun. In the evening, head out to the local bars and restaurants in Crowne Point. It's a relaxed place and the ever present reggae music makes for a party atmosphere. The local capital town of Scarborough has a range of local and duty free stores.
