Prasonisi 14 - 21 Sept 2024

Run By : Simon Winkley Windsurf and Wingfoil Clinics

The 2024 Simon Winkley Pro Coaching Windsurf clinic takes place in the stunning flat water venue of Prasonisi, Southern Rhodes.

The conditions are excellent for intermediate and advanced windsurfers, with very reliable wind stats for September. This will be an incredible week of intermediate and advanced coaching with typically strong wind in a fantastic, remote windsurfing location.

After the coaching, the group enjoy meals together with non-clinic friends and partners are welcome to join the holiday.


The Conditions

 

The prevailing wind is accelerated by the local ‘Venturi' system as it squeezes between the land masses. The clinic will be run on the flat-water side of the beach.

The wind has a cross-off direction, meaning that setting off and blasting back towards the beach for carve gybes is done in really flat water. Heading further out gives a little more chop for blasting and small jumps.

 

Course Details

Intermediate and advanced windsurfers will thrive on this clinic. Simon will be working with the group across a range of skills including kit setup and tuning, beach and water starts, getting going, planing, going fast and control at speed, harness and foot straps, tacking, carve gybing, non-planing gybing, improving success rate on manoeuvres.

Other more advanced skills can be covered as required, such as upwind/downwind 360s, duck gybes, body drags, chop hops and more. In the event of lighter winds, achievable freestyle on larger boards will help to improve technique.

 

There will be loads of improvements that Simon can help you with as well as new ideas and moves to try.

Simon will be making use of simulators and shore-based learning to support the on-water sessions. Coaching includes use of GoPros with various mounts, video coaching and photos to enable a close look 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 Centre

The Christof Kirschner Procenter is located just a 5 minute walk along the beach from the tiny village where the accommodation and restaurant is located. It is excellently run by friendly and helpful staff and carries a great range of up-to-date Neil Pryde/JP boards and rigs.

 



Wing Foil Clinic

If you also enjoy wingfoiling then Simon will follow this clinic with an intermediate wingfoil clinic in the same location.

Join for a double clinic. Windsurf week 1 and Wing Foil week 2!
