|ON STANDBY FOR 25th/26th AUGUST!!!
There's been some good wavesailing conditions in August but we're still waiting on them to line up with a weekend - fingers crossed for 25th/26th August
SHQ Wavesailing Clinic
SHQ is running a clinic at Sandy Point this winter focussed on the intermediate and first time wavesailor. If you can consistently waterstart, gybe and plane around in the footstraps then you can start to get out in the waves!
Sandy Point is the perfect location to push yourself in fun conditions due to the shape of Waratah Bay. Cross to cross-offshore wind conditions (ideal for wavesailing) can be found between in any wind direction between West and South Easterly. We have picked August to run the clinic as we typically see strong West to North West winds – offering flexibility in terms of locations to sail with varying sizes of waves (smaller in the corner of Waratah Bay and bigger at Sandy Point front beach). We will run the clinic on the first weekend in August that has a good forecast for learning wavesailing.
The clinic will be run by two of our team riders – Al McLeod and Jono Bouillir who can teach you anything from the finer details of getting over white water to landing your aerials and loops. They will be on hand to give you advice, answer your questions and capture your progress on camera. SHQ will also be providing plenty of the latest wave gear for you to demo.
This clinic will cost $450 for 2 nights/2days of coaching and includes accommodation and meals, Jono (also a qualified professional chef) will be cooking up a storm after a big day on the water. At the end of the day we can go through the photos and video captured to analyse technique and give you tips for the next day of action – it really is a much faster way to progress! You will also be able to take your action shots home with you to show the friends and family and the end of the trip.
