Already early this season I got in touch with Maciej Kapuscinski from Wavecamp Poland to see if it was possible for me to give a freestyle-clinic on Karpathos.
Giving clinics is a new thing for me but I enjoy passing on the tips and tricks which comes with freestyle in this case but also regarding the slalom- and foiling discipline.
It’s nice to talk with windsurf-lovers and help them where I can to teach them new moves or improve the ones they already know.
So on August 27 I arrived on a for me new destination ; the island of Karpathos in Greece.
The first day we made the following clip to warm-up the participants who signed up for the clinic and the instructors of the Ion-Anemos Club Warpaths who hosted the clinic.
In between the action on the water I could give them the in- and outs about rigging, several moves and answer al their questions. It was a super experience and hope to have motivate everybody to continue windsurfing.
Below more pictures and clips . Thanks to Olek Pobikrowski for the pictures and video’s. on Insta : Fotolek
