I was able to take part in last weekend's camp. There were some that got on a plane for the first time, water started for the first time, learned to tack correctly, learned correct sailing form and stance, learned how to get on a plane, learned to jibe correctly, learned how to learn windsurfing - that was the beginner/intermediate group.

The advanced group learned carving 360s, how to safely attempt front loops, shove its, duck jibes, vulcans, jump jibes, gecko loops, gecko flakas, etc. But I think the bigger deal was that most of those taking the clinic were actually trying and succeeding.

What hurt the most was everyone's faces due to smiles. So if you want to learn to windsurf the fast way - then go to Andy's clinic.

His camps are a great way to meet other windsurfers that want to improve and have a lot of fun.

Still time to sign up for this week's clinic!

I've taken a bunch of these and you can't make a better investment in your windsurfing progression - for a fraction of the price of that new board you've had your eye on!

You can post a message to him on the ABK website:
www.abkboardsports.com

Also, look for his truck - looks like a small U-Haul truck - white in color.
They are usually at the Marina in the afternoons.

I took this clinic last weekend - we had one really light day and 2 big wind days. Andy and his crew can make even the lightest light wind days interesting and they can teach most of the new school and old school moves. I definitely recommend it.
