5 day IKO Kiteboard Master Clinic
Advanced / Intermediate
15 – 19 July 2017
This Kiteboard Master Clinic (KMC) is the newest kiteboarder training offered exclusively at Kite Club Cabarete. The Clinic is designed to improve on a wide range of kiteboarding aspects while providing riders the freedom to explore the available knowledge from various angles with a pragmatic approach. The Clinic improves upon riding skills through various aspects:
A 5 day clinic to advance your riding level:
Kiteboarders are offered a 5-day advanced program to become Kiteboard Masters. The schedule is a mix between practice, workshops, theoretical courses and personalized coaching. One pleasant aspect of the IKO Kiteboard Master Clinic is that it guarantees 5-days of activity whether there is wind or not.
KMCs offer you three options to specialize in for skill improvement:
The three options available for improving riding skills during a KMC are: wave riding, freeride and freestyle. Each KMC develops on one or more of these three skills. Check out the training calendar to find and select the Clinic that fits the skill (s) area you want to improve on.
A group thing, yet personalized!
Improvement comes with synergy and practice. The IKO Kiteboard Master Clinic is organized with a maximum of 6 riders, with one kiteboard Coach, that can share experiences and vision. Workshops and theoretical course are done in groups.
Each clinic is customized according to the rider’s wishes and needs. Coaching is personalized during advanced riding practice. Video filming of your practice and debriefing are done to help faster and better riders’ progression.
No wind insurance:
No wind? No stop. The Kiteboard Master Clinic is developed to adapt to weather conditions. The schedule can be optimized according to wind time range allowing the maximum riding hours. If there is no wind at some point, extra activities are planned. These include stand up paddleboard, wake boarding, kayaking, mountain biking and so many others. The Organizer lists activities.
The KMC organizer will replace 2 hours of activity for every half day where there is no wind, and will do this up to three times. The Kiteboard Coach manages the rest of the time.
