Aterra Watertech surfkayak Peniche 5-9 october

Posted by aterrakayak på 16 oktober 2012

This will be in english as this course was only in english and some dutch!? and a little portugese, sometimes i and Mattias could talk a bit swedish ;). Might as well say it now sorry for the bad english…

Sometimes when people meet the just click, it took about three minutes to get this bunch together and i think that they had as much fun as i did. What a week this was, fantastic company and the guys was so easy to teach, i just told them what to do and so they did… hmm they tried in all cases… Oh yeah and the result was amazing they did all manage to make the topturn on the third day, in different stages though but anyway.  The participants was Mattias, David, Rob, Rui.

One was completely begginner (Rui) another (Rob) was allready pretty good at surfkayaking. Yes it was a bit nervous in the start to teach someone that nearly is as good as my self and i even think he was better than me after the course. But he learned a lot i hope at least he sayd so ;)… well i managed(it was a hard work hehe) to make him get rid of these femaleish white water turns that i dont think have anything to do in surfing. Take a look at the photos, Rob did many nice things the last day when we got bigger waves… yepp for sure he really gave me a match. Rui was complete begginer of kayaking except for 2-3 times in a SOT on flat water. Young tough and eager to learn, wow it was great to see him develop, amazing i must say. Even if he didnt had the roll he managed to learn during the week (thanks Mattias and Rob for the help) and did some sharp rolls out in the deep water. Mattias was the rolling expert and a greenland seakayaker regardless of that he come very fast inte the technique of surfkayaking. Pretty cool rides and a bit softer moves  made him to fall in love with the new Fly. Well he showed us the fins nicely in the bottomturns. David also a ww paddler but he  had a more aggresive style from the start, the last day he snapped and slashed the topturns as a pro. It was a cool ending of the week to see him and Mattias in the extremely fast ONA. It take some hard work to handle that kayak as they did the last day.

Pretty nice weather all week not the biggest waves but we found a new spot to be in if the participants think one meter is to low… they often not… ;). Peniche is perfect as i can even separate the group if someone want to go bigger, the reef is so close so i can have controll of the whole group anyway.

Next Aterra Watertech course  in Peniche is easter 2013 the week before and after. Hope to see you there.
