Sam Ross windsurf clinics

We’re excited to announce an intermediate and advanced windsurf clinic at Baia dei Mori Beachclub in Sardinia and a WindFoiling clinic at Aeolian Village Beachclub in Greece. All clinics will be run by Sam Ross, one of the UK’s leading watersports coaches and one of the most qualified and experienced windsurf coaches in the country.

Sam started his career with us as a windsurf instructor and has worked in a number of our resorts for many years prior to starting his current career as a trainer.

When Sam comes out to resort he is there just to look after the guests on the clinic, so expect as much support and tuition as you can manage during your stay. With sessions running every morning and afternoon you can expect to go away having progressed, had a huge amount of time on the water and an awesome amount of fun.

Intermediate windsurfing clinic

The intermediate week is all about gaining speed, but also control. Improving stance and harness work, as well to get fully planing and into the foot straps. You’ll also be looking at how to improve tacks and gybes on smaller boards and in a bit more wind, plus beach starts and waterstarts.

To benefit from this clinic you’ll need to be able to sail comfortably on all points of sail and have some experience using a harness. Check out this video from Sam for a taster of the skills you’ll be covering on this clinic.

The intermediate clinic takes place at Baia dei Mori Beachclub in Sardinia on 16 June 2018 and is available for a supplement of £200 per person, maximum 10 places.

Advanced windsurf clinic

The advanced week focuses on turning with style. You’ll be blasting in higher winds on smaller boards and spending a lot of time working on those key moves – carve gybes and high wind tacks.

Sam will also focus on improving stance and if you want to impress – getting the board out the water and even throwing a few turns. There’s a minimum ability to join this course, you’ll need to be comfortable in both straps and able to waterstart. For a taster of what to expect check out Sam’s video.

The advanced windsurfing week takes place on 23 June 2018 at Baia dei Mori Beachclub in Sardinia for a supplement of £200 per person, maximum 10 places.

Flight Club – WindFoil clinic

Hydrofoil windsurfing is nothing new, but advances in technology have brought this windsurfing discipline on in leaps and bounds.

Sam has taken to WindFoiling in a big way and his clinic ‘Flight Club’ is all about taking off!  The entire week is focussed on WindFoiling and Sam will take you through the setup, skills and techniques you need to get your first flight, work towards sustained flights and even try some aerial manoeuvres. To join this clinic you’ll need to be very comfortable and confident in both footstrap positions, set up in an outboard position.

The WindFoiling clinic will be taking place at Aeolian Village Beachclub on 7 July 2018 for a supplement of £250 per person, maximum eight places. Check out Sam’s video to see what all the fuss is about.
