Kitefoiling Coaching Clinics
Kitesurfing Armada, United Kingdom 22-24th June, 2018
Progression is excited to be part of the Kitesurfing Armada, the UK’s biggest and best kitesurfing event of the year. We’ll be offering foiling coaching for those completely new to kite foiling and those already up and riding, looking to improve their general foiling technique, gybes, carves, foot changes and tacks.
Progressions aim is to make learning to foil as quick and easy as possible – developments in equipment and coaching techniques means the horror stories of repeated hard crashes, are no longer necessary, our slow and steady program will save you all that agony.
And for those with more experience but finding it harder to move past simply foiling back and forth, Progression has broken down every manoeuvre into simpler techniques that can be learnt, then built you some you can reach each of your foiling goals.
What happens on a Progression Live Coaching clinic
As with all Progression clinics, the structure of the weekend will be tailored to the level of kiters that sign up but will feature one-on-one coaching, video analysis and live demos.
You can sign for one or both days and here is a look at the two styles of clinics we’ll be running:
Learn to Foil
We will start with a Progression Live Demo covering all aspects of learning to foil, with Danny on the water and Rob talking everyone through the stages and techniques that will get you out on the water, up on the board and then your first runs on the foil. This is free for anyone to attend and then followed by one-on-one coaching sessions with the aim to get you up and experiencing your first foiling by the end of the session.
Progression will supply the foil and board and you will just need to have your own kites.
Improve your foiling
We will start with a Progression Live Demo covering better foiling technique, the foot change, gybes, carves and tacks. Danny and Rob will show you all the techniques, giving you a chance to ask questions and Danny to give you a real-time demo of your answer. Again this demo is free for anyone to attend and then will be followed by a group clinic where you can get out and ride, getting coaching tips and vital feedback to speed up your progression.
Participants need to have their own equipment – foil, board, kites and helmet
