The last weekend in October we had our Rippers Freestyle Wave Camp, hosted at West Wittering Windsurfing Club with Sam Ross and Rossco Moore.
The weekend kicked off early Saturday morning and the concept is a mixture of fitness, freestyle technique and wave sailing technique. Sam Ross who is one of the most energetic instructors in the UK delivered the course with Rossco from X-train.
The group was warmed up then did dry land drills and then spent the rest of the time out on the water as the wind picked up and the tide changed developing new skills to take their windsurfing to the next level.
On the second day of the course, Julian Du Vall and Trevor Funnell from the UKWA came over and explained how Freestyle Comps worked, judging, about starts and competition zones and held a “mini comp” on Sunday afternoon in pretty light and difficult conditions.
Jamie Drummond, Adam Sims were on hand over the weekend inspiring the new crew with reasons why you should take up windsurfing to a higher level. James Randall also helped with the judging at the mini event.
A big thanks to Chris Rainbow, James Randall, Rossco Moore, Sam Ross, Trevor Funnell and Julian Du Vall; also thanks to Ion, Seasprite and 2XS who gave us some goodies to hand out.
