Kitefoiling Coaching Clinics
Poole 26-27th May, 2018
Progression is teaming up with Andy at Easyriders to offer a weekend of foiling coaching for the kiters of Poole and Dorset. 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.
Progression & Easy Riders aim 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, we’ve broken down every manoeuvre into simpler techniques that can be learnt and then built upon so you can reach each of your foiling goals.
What happens on a Progression Live Coaching clinic
As with all Progression/Easy Rider 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 will then be 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. This 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
Our clinics are £70 per person per day and we need a minimum of 6 people a day to run the clinic.
If you are a member of the Bournemouth and Poole Kitesurfing Club then you will get a £20 discount.
There are limited spaces each day and payment will be required before the clinic to confirm your space. On the Thursday before the clinic, we will confirm if the clinic needs to be cancelled if the wind or sea conditions are not suitable – in which case a full refund will be issued.
