LAST FEW PLACES FOR PETER HART RED SEA WINDSURF CLINIC

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Peter Hart is returning to Safaga on the Red Sea from 14-21 April 2015 for a Red Sea windsurfing clinic to get your spring sailing in gear. “It was the first Red Sea resort I visited in the 90s and was my chosen spot for clinics, sail testing and for the Carve Clinic video series.” says Peter. “It’s a classic training spot with flat water, rolling swell and great trips out to fabulous Tobia island. Staying in the classy Shams hotel on a keen all inclusive deal with Club Mistral right on site. What is there not to like?” To get the best out of this clinic you should be able to plane in the harness. The course covers ‘General skills’ such as improving your technique for faster tacks, carve gybes, duck gybes improving on what you can already do. Peter tailors the programme to suit you. There’s a little bit of beach theory, loads of on water sessions with immediate feedback.

“LAS MANCHAS” – TENERIFE

“LAS MANCHAS” – TENERIFE

End of December 2014 the Canary Islands were under storm warnings…when that happens, Dany Bruch and his mates are always searching were to go to score some epic conditions. This time they went to an outside reef called “Las Manchas”, in the Antequera area, near the Anaga Rocks, north shore of Tenerife. Waves were mountains moving around, massive, but nothing epic really as the strong wind was kind of onshore…Dany still needed to give it a shot and go down a couple of white water bombs!

Quality of the footage is very poor, but still you get a taste of what was going on out there!

Thanks to Alexander Zirke for capturing this with his GoPro.
Thanks to Vilayta for the water rescue and support.
Thanks to Aito for taking pictures!
