Sunday the 7th of april was the official start from the first ever clinic of the Next Generation Project at Porto Pollo. With 4 participants from Italy and Belguim we got a good start. The level is high with participants training moves starting from spocks till their first shaka’s.
The day started very sunny with light winds which made it perfect to explain all the moves on the beach carefully as there was not to much a hurry to get on the water. This gave coach Dieter the time to both explain and show movies from how to do the moves participants wanted to learn.
After lunch at the windsurfclub from Porto Pollo we went on the water with little hope we would get planning but as soon as we hit the water wind started to improve and fast pumping conditions changed into full planning conditions which made everybody able to try the theorie they learned in the morning for real on the water. In the mean time Dieter sailed inbetween the participants to give them extra instructions on what to do better and what was good. With almost 3 hours on the water it was a great start from the week. And the forcast looks like wind every single day which will make the participants rise to the next level!
On the second day there will be some video analyse in the morning just before hitting the water straight after so they can improve their mistakes from the day before and get closer to their goals in warm, sunny and especially windy Sardinia!
