KCW Foiling Clinic 25/26/27 August

Postby JamesVegas » 06 Aug 2018, 11:40

The club is planning on running an introduction to foiling clinic over the coming August bank holiday weekend. The clinic will be run by Rob Claisse, owner of the excellent Progression videos who has run a number of clinics for various clubs.

The format will be 4 people per day, we can run the clinic over 1/2/3 days depending on wind and numbers of participants. Students use their own kites and Rob will supply the foil boards, he’s using the super easy to learn on Shinn foils with various mast sizes. It is essential that you have good kite skills and are able to stay upwind if you want to come along and have a taste of foiling.

This is a brilliant way to have a go at an awesome kitesurfing discipline without spending a fortune on a foil board. Rob has chosen his kit really well, I own the foil he’s teaching on and it’s very gentle and perfect for learning on.

The cost of the day is a very reasonable £70 per person and the club will be contributing 50% of that. All club members are eligible for this event (as long as you have the necessary kite skills) but priority will be given to those who didn’t take advantage of the Yuri surf clinic earlier this year.

Please let us know ASAP if you are interested.

Awesome stuff, just wish you'd mentioned this to us as we are away those dates (once again) :lol:
But we also have a full weekend of students too being a B/H weekend.

Sorry Marc, it’s been a bit of a last minute decision and that’s the only weekend we can run this as Rob is busy through to November when it will be too cold. Even I’m not able to attend.

Hey a Steve, we’ll put you down for day 2 and hopefully we’ll get the numbers to run a second day. I can’t remember if you took part in the Yuri clinic or not?

Thanks Marc! I stand corrected.

So we’re looking for another 3 members for a second day.

Hi James, I'm definitely up for this, thanks for organising! I'll send you a text so we're in touch that way too (assuming your number is still the same as last year). I wasn't around for the Yury surf clinic.

I’ve just spoken to Rob. He’s got a couple of guys from Bristol who will probably be joining so we should be able to fill up a second day. He’s got Richie and Sporty’s details so they’ll be organising the clinic as I’m currently surfing in France. Fingers crossed the wind does its thing this time!

I have PM'd everyone who is currently enrolled, asking for their contact email, just PM me back please so we can keep you all updated.
