X-Train Rippers Freestyle Camp – Sat 27th Sun 28th October @ West Wittering

We are happy to announce the Freestyle X-train Rippers Camp will be running for its second year.

The WWWC beach venue offers one of the UKs best flat-water freestyle locations at low tide and then a fantastic wave spot at high tide. This weekend has been selected to get the most out of the tides and so should offer the best and greatest range of conditions for aspiring freestylers and wave sailors alike.
Between Sam Ross and Jamie Drummond they bring a host of experience with almost 2 decades of windsurfing coaching between them as well as competing and judging on the PWA world tour, instructor training and UK titles between them. Trevor Funnell and Julian Duvall will also be on hand on Sunday –with practical advice on competing in the UKWA freestyle tour.
X-Train also has additional equipment to help young sailors make the most out of the weekend as well as showers, kitchen, changing facilities and rescue cover on this exclusive piece of the south coast.

Last years camp was a great success with 17 young rippers enrolled all improving hugely over the weekend and a full wave and freestyle competition to finish. Read our new story from last years wave camp.

As far as minimum ability level you need to be planning in the foot straps we will divide groups up into their ability levels –please call us if you are unsure.

Sailing Instructions:

This two day camp is aimed at Kids and teens who are already blasting around on boards of around 100ltrs and below on all points of sails.
Sam and Jamie will split the group according to ability but both groups will have the same overall aim. To dramatically push and improve these young sailors in a coastal environment over the weekend and have loads of fun.
The groups will be looking at a range of things from sailing on the sea more confidently, carving gybes, duck gybes and jumping. Too popping for freestyle moves forwards and all modern freestyle maneuvers.
With or without wind this camp is aimed at improving these young ripper’s all round waterman ship and so will be looking at knowledge, skills and etiquette within the coastal environment.
Surf, Paddlesurfing and Wind supping are all tools that the camp will make use depending on what the conditions are most appropriate for.
Sailors will need the following:

1. Windsurfing equipment appropriate for the conditions i.e.: a board around 100 ltrs or less appropriate for the conditions found at the coast. Larger boards will be available as part of the camp and small freestyle and wave boards are available for hire through X-train.

2. Warm Wetsuit

3. Plenty of warm and waterproof clothing.

4. Snacks, water, food and lunch.

5. Trainers for warm ups
