This weekend is shaping up to be a good one for our wave clinic.
The forecast looks like good wind Saturday morning and all Sunday with a small swell on Saturday building to a mid size swell by Sunday afternoon which will be perfect for progression through the clinic. Should be a great weekend.
There are still a few spots left so give us a call now to lock it in. We've added an option of paying $120 a day just for the coaching for those who don't want to stay down the whole weekend or are looking for a cheaper option.
Thinking about hitting the waves but don't have the right gear or not confident to give it a go? Join our winter wavesailing clinic!!! Email Fletch@shq.com.au to lock in your spot.
SHQ is running a clinic at Sandy Point this winter for all levels of wavesailors. If you can consistently waterstart, gybe and plane around in the footstraps then you can start to get out in the waves!
Sandy Point is the perfect location to push yourself in fun conditions due to the shape of Waratah Bay. Cross to cross-offshore wind conditions (ideal for wavesailing) can be found between in any wind direction between West and South Easterly. We have picked August to run the clinic as we typically see strong West to North West winds – offering flexibility in terms of locations to sail with varying sizes of waves (smaller in the corner of Waratah Bay and bigger at Sandy Point front beach).
The clinic will be run by two of our team riders – Al McLeod and Jono Bouillir who can teach you anything from the finer details of getting over white water to landing your aerials and loops. They will be on hand to give you advice, answer your questions and capture your progress on camera. SHQ will also be providing plenty of the latest wave gear for you to demo.
This clinic is all-inclusive so accommodation and meals will be provided, Jono (also a qualified professional chef) will be cooking up a storm after a big day on the water. At the end of the day we can go through the photos and video captured to analyse technique and give you tips for the next day of action – it really is a much faster way to progress! You will also be able to take your action shots home with you to show the friends and family and the end of the trip.
