Winter has finally landed here in the UK so it’s back to booties, gloves and ice cream headaches for the hardcore with many more confining their SUPs to the garage until next spring. It certainly doesn’t have to be like that!
Why not join Loco head honcho Joey T out in Fuerteventura for a week’s intensive coaching in December? Our Loco Winter SUP Camps will improve your paddle surfing by 6 months in just 7 days benefitting from first rate tuition, reliable swell and tropical temperatures. Joe has been teaching people to paddle surf for the last 6 years through his Tynemouth-based SUP school Boardskillz alongside spearheading the training programme for the Loco Academy that was instrumental in recent Team Loco’s recent British Nationals successes. He has also lived on the island over the last couple of winters so knows all the spots, places to eat and certainly knows where to unplug for those apres-surf ‘tropicals’.
The clinics have been designed to cater for improvers and up so it’s important people can at least stand on a board and have some of the basics dialled in e.g. turns and being able to catch a wave. The intention is to run with a maximum of 10 clients with Joe running two sessions per day for 4 of the 7 days giving clients the opportunity to see some of the island or have some personal paddling time to perfect what they’ve learned. There are a host of SUP-friendly waves with many of them sporting a flat paddle out making progress easy. Private tuition and video coaching also available outside of group times. We can also organise a professional photo session at the end of the week for a small additional fee.
The accommodation will be group-based within a large luxurious villa with twin beds, a pool and first rate self-catering facilities.
The cost of the clinic is £450/person which includes accommodation, tuition, and 2 meals out. You’ll need to bring your own board but failing that we can arrange local hire for approx £125/week (flying own kit usually costs about £70-100). You’ll definitely need a car to access the various surf spots. We can either look at getting a minibus for the whole week (for an extra charge per person) or clients can make their own arrangements. Flights are not included but the weeks we’ve chosen offer very cost-effective options being just before the Christmas influx!
We’re looking to fill 6-13th December first with a view to staying out there the following week (13-20th) subject to sufficient interest. Please get in contact ASAP to express your interest. We require a £200 non-refundable deposit by the 20th November to secure your place. Couples, singles and families all welcome.
Take your SUP surfing to the next level, rock a tan for Christmas and experience the awesomeness of Europe’s own slice of Hawaii. For more information or to book please contact Joe direct on either 0191 4206921 / 07779 127230 or email email@example.com
