Emile’s Carve gybe, Forward & Back loop clinics

Emile Kott (Level 5 instructor, Boards Magazine tester and 2XS team rider) has announced his summer 2010 courses.
The courses are unique, in that they only run if the conditions are there. This means you won’t be doing light wind forwards, backies and carve gybes!Get in touch early to avoid disapointment! To book or for more information, please call 01243 513 077.

Course: The WINDY Carve Gybe Clinic
Possible Timeslots:
(the course will run on the one date below which gives the best conditions. Please only book onto this course if you are free for all the dates.)
21st May, 9am – 3pm (1 hour lunch)
22nd May, 10am – 4pm (1 hour lunch)
23rd May, 11am – 5pm (1 hour lunch)

Course Description:
If you are struggling to get around your carve gybes or can’t quite plane out, then this is a course for you. Emile has devised a tried and tested carve gybe course through years of instructing all around the world. Emile will use a mixture of one-one, group and video tuition – his new waterproof video camera lets him sit in the water and have you gybe around him!

The course will only run if there’s enough wind to plane comfortably on a 6.5 sail or below. The timeslots mean that we will be running it in the perfect flat water of West Wittering low-tide lagoons.

Minimum level for course: Planing comfortably in the footstraps and harness on a sub 150 litre board. Waterstarts make it easier but are not a prerequisite.
Course price: £120

Course: THE 2010 Back Loop Clinic
Possible Dates:
(the course will run on the one date below which gives the best conditions. Please only book onto this course if you are free for all the dates.)

29th May, 11am – 4.30pm (30 mins lunch)
30th May, 12noon – 5.30pm (30 mins lunch)

Course Description:Following on from 2009’s extremely popular and successful Backloop Clinic, Emile has further tweaked the course and has improved it for 2010.

The course breaks down the backloop into manageable sections and using on-water, land-based and video tuition, Emile is sure to have you making your best back loop attempts to date and you will leave the course as obsessed with the move as he is!

As last year, the course will only run if there is enough wind and waves to land a back loop. While not being renowned for huge waves, if it’s windy at West Wittering, we are almost guaranteed to have a good selection of ramps.

Minimum level for course: Comfortable sailing and jumping in strong wind and wave conditions on a sub 90 litre wave or freestyle wave board. The more vertical you can jump, the more you will get from the course.

Course price: £120

Course: The Forward Loop Clinic

26th June, 10am – 3.30pm (30 mins lunch)
27th June, 11am – 4.30pm (30 mins lunch)
Course Description:New for 2010, Emile is running his first forward loop clinic. The course will run using a similar method to his very successful back loop clinics and is aimed at those who feel they may be ready to master this life-changing manoeuvre.

The course will break down the move into manageable, easy parts and is sure to get you around and improve your first forward loop attempts by the end of the day. Emile will use a mix of water-based and land-based one-one, group and video coaching to break down the move for you.

The clinic will only run if there is enough wind to complete a decent forward loop (around 20 knots of wind) and the timeslots have been organised to ensure it is run around a high tide at West Wittering, giving the best change of launch ramps.

Minimum level for course: Comfortable sailing and jumping in strong wind and wave conditions on a sub 90 litre wave or freestyle wave board

Course price: £120
