Our recent Intermediate Twin Tip kitesurfing clinic with BKSA Coach, Lee Harvey ran on sunday 14th april at Marazion in a chilly but sunny south easterly wind.
Despite the wind playing games, meaning we had to change kites half way through, the 4 guys all learnt lots to push their kitesurfing level upwards over the coming months.
Starting off with on land demos we looked at; riding toeside, jumps, pop, and backrolls. We then progressed onto on water demos on each segment before the guys took on the moves themselves.
Below is a little video of the clinic.
Next Intermediate clinic is planned for Sat 24th June. Details on the clinic page
Feedback from the guys-
'The best thing about it for me was it gave me more confidence to just 'have a go' and try some new moves, rather than doing the same thing.'
'Didn't have any expectations as I've never had lessons or coaching before. It was good to see what it like, I thought it was good value and would do it agian.'
'I think it did what it was meant to for all of us and give more knowledge to help move our kiting on over the summer.'
Easter Sunday saw 4 kitesurfers come to Marazion for the Spring Wave Clinic with BKSA Coach Lee Pasty Harvey. Despite the severely cold ese wind and smallish waves, everyone had a great time riding strapless and learnt lots to be getting on with during the coming months. We started off with some wave theroy in the warmth of Jordans Cafe, before moving onto the water and looked at footwork, gybes, getting over waves and wave riding.
The next clinic we have coming up is the Intro to Waves clinic at Gwithian or Marazion, weather depending. All the info on the clinic page. Next Wave clinic is tbc, please contact to register your interest.
