Sam ran our advanced rippers course last weekend where 14 recruits braved the wet, windy, and wavy conditions over 2 days at 2XS West Wittering.
Sandy Clunas joined Sam to assist with the coaching and they all spent over 9 hours in wetsuits during the course. They went through lots of technique to help develop their long term windsurf skills for flat water, chop and surf conditions. The final day of the course was windy with waves, and after their windsurf session they finished the day with some decent SUP and surfing. Sam is a legendary coach and spent some time with Sandy and the crew going through the video techniques to understand the next steps.
The parents and guardians who were watching from the shoreline all joined us in the local pub The Old House at Home for a meal and social on the Saturday night.
A big well done to the 2XS Rippers of 2018 (James, Tommy, Ollie, Freddie, Ben, Jonny, Jake, James, Josh, Matty, Jake, Freddy, Daisy and Luke). We are planning two courses with Sam and Sandy in 2019, in May and October. Sign up to our newsletter to receive updates.
