Prasonisi 08-15 June 2024

Run By : Jem Hall Windsurf Clinics

The 2024 Jem Hall windsurfing clinic, Pro Coaching week to Prasonisi on the stunning Greek Island of Rhodes see Jem return for an amazing week of freeriding, freestyle and more at this first class windsurfing venue. Designed for improvers / intermediates and above windsurfers and focussed on beach/waterstarts, stance, footstraps, tacks and gybes. Hugely popular weeks which get sold out very quickly.


Course details
Jem will be coaching through the use of simulators, on-water coaching and video coaching. Sociable weeks for guys and girls, with theory sessions, on water coaching and time to relax off the water.

With the use of Jem's on water coaching, demonstration, simulators and video feedback, the course content will be relevant to the ability level for that week and individual needs but generally covers:
 

► Starts ­ Better beach starts and learning water starts - vastly improving these.
► Stance ­ Planing early, faster sailing up and downwind, getting more control.
► Footstraps Making the straps your friend and moving forward as a harness user.
Gybes­ Light wind gybes to carve gybes, learning and improving turns and planing gybes.
► Tacking ­Nailing this very useful and fundamental skill.
► Freestyle ­For those wishing to have an introduction on flat water or learn new tricks.
► Jumping Get some air time with first jumps, forwards, Vulcans or any other moves.



Typical Course Level
Intermediates to Advanced
To get the best out of this clinic you should be beach starting and be in the harness, or as near as. For good intermediates you will be fully blasting in the harness and footstraps or very close to this. The ability to waterstart would be a bonus but Jem will work on improving all of these during the week and be ready to learn or be attempting carve gybes.



The Conditions
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 Jem'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. WiFI is now available in the taverna and down at the windsurf centre.

The Social
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.
