A huge thank you to you and Kevin for putting on this camp. I hope you keep it going. I would like to make it an annual thing for me. Also, I want to get one or more of my sons to come with me for the deluxe Solo Sports Baja experience.
The Baja Wave Camp was excellent. The Solo Sports transportation, accommodations, equipment, and video work were outstanding and truly compliments the instruction. Matt and Kevin’s instruction along with personal feedback and video analysis has helped me on my way to getting my windsurfing skill to the next level.
Solo Sports resort provided a very comfortable clean camp and lounge areas. The food prepared was delicious and nutritious. The sleeping was great for me on the provided deluxe Therm-a-rest pad. Transportation was quick and efficient with their fly in option. The staff were friendly, helpful and shared our passion for surfing and sailing. All the gear was late model and top end. With all this it was easy to focus on windsurfing. Somehow, Matt, Kevin, and the Solo staff, got a lot of good quality video of us wave sailing.
On the water, sailing with Kevin and Matt is enlightening. They are not shy, and don’t hesitate to shout out to their students what they should and shouldn’t be doing. Kevin let me know to shift my weight forward more when bottom turning. I sailed with Matt for a few of runs, he would motion to show me where to be on the not yet breaking wave and like magic, I ended up right on the sweet spot of the breaking wave. Also, watching Kevin and Matt out on the water was a learning experience. To see firsthand the where and how to sail in the waves was awesome.
Matt and Kevin are professional watermen with big hearts. They have patience, understanding, and a knack for explaining technique for windsurfing students of all levels. I witnessed progress with my fellow Wave Campers from one student who has never sailed in the ocean before to another that was an expert wave sailor. We all got a lot out of the camp.
The on water, and on land instruction were all good and helpful but what I think really helped me the most was the video analysis. I believed I had good form an in my mind’s eye I had been doing things right for some three years of trying to figure out wave sailing. Upon seeing myself sailing I then realized that my body and rig position were not making for good bottom turns or jibes. Just as I was told, but seeing it made it sink in. My jibes, which I thought were pretty good, became instantly better and easier with the recommended corrections.
A couple of days at the camp we encountered light wind. It was not ideal for budding wave sailors. However, the more advanced sailed every day. I took advantage of Solo’s nice SUP boards and paddles when the wind was light. The PSC waves during my stay were frequent and forgiving. I could get wave after wave in uncrowded delightful surf. Also, beside sailing and surfing, top end mountain bikes were available for the campers to use on the nearby vast system of trails. Fun stuff.
Offhand I can’t think of any way to improve your program. I like the way there seems to be a basic structure but always the flexibility to accommodate the student’s questions and needs. I think the video feedback is a really powerful part of the program.
