JEM HALL THE WINDSURF COACH HD

This video was captured over two of my wave clinic coaching holidays, Moulay in Morocco and Punta San Carlos in Baja, and it’s aim is to give you an idea of what occurs on these holidays and how I go about helping people to improve their windsurfing and enjoy their time out. It goes on to give you more of an idea of what I am like as a coach, sailor and person and demonstrate my thoughts about windsurfing as a sport.
