A clinic program orientated on our future, the next generation of windsurfing!

In all sports you see young talented people getting coached by a trainer to get the full profit of their talent, in all sports except windsurfing. In the next generation project we want to give this opportunity to every young talent; to learn faster and become better in what they love to do, Windsurfing. The coaching will cover almost all levels. From the first jibes till the creasiest moves you can imagine. It will be 6 days of full coaching from morning till evening on some of the best locations in Europe!

Besides improving their sailing, participants will also meet a lot of other windsurfers of their age with about the same level; there is nothing as good as little healthy competition to improve even faster. Everybody knows the benefits of training with people of your level or even a bit higher. Put a coach on top of that and the results will follow guaranteed. This makes the clinics the perfect concept for fast improvement!

Day Six - Last Day - Porto Pollo

Last day of the clinic was another sunny and windy day. In the morning the wind looked amazing so we all rigged up fast and went on the water. Sadly enough the wind wasn’t the best for very long time. After half an hour of sailing the wind got a bit more gusty but it were still planing conditions so we stayed out until lunch.

After lunch the wind dropped for a bit so it was a good time to work on a list where the guys still had to work on after the camp. By the time we were finished with that, the wind picked up again just like we ordered it and we still could enjoy an amazing last session until everybody was really tired and got much closer to their goals. After this we all decided to go for a dinner together in the evening to end the amazing clinic week!

At the dinner I could give away some nice T-shirts from C7 who supports our Clinics for the Next Generation. I divided them in 3 prices: 2 for the best moves I saw and one for the most motivated guy of the Clinic.

The first price for best move went to Michiel De Cooman who landed a fully perfect shaka just upwind in front of me on the 3 day of the clinic. The shaka is a move he got pretty consistent now and he really deserved a T-shirt from C7.

The second price (T-shirt from C7) for most motivated guy went to the Italian Calvin McMillan Pes, he was the guy who wanted to go on the water always first and would stay out for the longest ,fully motivated to learn and practice his freestyle moves. I hope he keeps this motivation in the future and than for sure we will still hear from him in the future! A deserved price for him!

The last T-shirt went to Mattijs Lasore who is for me one of the most technical riders of the whole group making up for the less power he has, compared to the other guys. He deserved this price by pulling a really nice puneta 900° which at the age of 14 is pretty impressive! If he gets some more power he will learn even faster and we can surely expect some great moves from him in the future!

I want to thank all participants for this great week and for the amazing improvement they made! I really enjoyed giving them tips and tricks and can’t wait to do the next clinic at Brouwersdam! I hope to see some of them there again and a lot of new faces who want to be part of the Next Generation Project! See you in the beginnig of July at Brouwersdam!!

Cheers NGP
