1-2-1 Coaching

Product Review (submitted on 9 June 2019):
Jump 1-2-1 coaching fixed a problem I’ve struggled with for a long time. Highly recommended!

Since my initial lessons, I'd been pretty happy with how I'd progressed across various styles of kiteboarding but one thing I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere with was jumping. Even though I could do smallish jumps (4m+) in high winds/boosting off waves and could do very low back rolls, trying to jump higher / without a ramp / in lighter winds just didn't work - failing to get a fraction of the height I should and/or being totally out of control. I eventually decided a 1-2-1 with Marc was the only way forward and am so glad I made that decision.

Through Marc explaining what I should be doing, watching my attempts and me explaning what I was experiencing we discovered a number of things I was doing wrong. Fixing each of these improved my jumping but there was one little thing, which I would never have realised was a problem, that made a huge difference. By the end of the session I was confident I knew how to jump properly and had made some progress in actually doing so. I then spent another hour on the water and really felt things coming together nicely. Feels like it won't take long to get my jumps fully dialled now and can start pushing for bigger heights. :)

Would recommend a 1-2-1 with Marc to anyone who is stuck with something or who just wants to speed up their progression. Goes without saying that he knows his stuff but he is also an excellent teacher and the Bb Talkin radio system he uses is fantastic. Our chats on the beach (with visual demonstrations) were key but I'd have needed MUCH more coaching time if we hadn't also been able to talk with each other at any time.
