When you are ready to get serious about having more fun, join one of our Maui clinics! Sit back relax and let the inspiration begin! The focus of these clinics is getting you to your next level of windsurfing. We start with the core basics and build from there. For many windsurfers, getting the correct stance is first on the list weather they know it or not!
Knowing your equipment is key, you will learn how to properly tune your gear. You will learn how to safely navigate the Maui waters. You will have a great time!
After the long hard days of windsurfing in the warm tropical waters you get a chance to hang out and socialize with everyone. Telling tall tales over your favorite beverage is hard to beat. Video analyzation as well as still photo’s will be shown to make learning easier.
A lot of windsurfers are intimidated by the thought of MAUI and all that it represents for windsurfing. Yes it is the mecca of the wind and wave chasers and Hookipa is one of the worlds best wavesailing locations….. however, these clinics are not at Hookipa. Maui offers plenty of safe places to easily learn new windsurfing skills! We work together to tackle the basics and then individually you will be analyzed to begin your process to windsurfing greatness.
Kevin spends most of his days either ripping HOokipa or traveling in search of bigger better waves! Look for guests appearances from this icon of the sport to come say hi and offer some tips from his years of being a World Champion Windsurfer-
Three time world champion. Matt has been teaching for the past 11 years with great success getting YOU to improve your performance. No matter what level you are at, you can always learn something new! Maximize your sailing efficiency, learn how to plane out of your jibes or start jumping to the moon!
I can’t believe how much my windsurfing skills have improved. Not only can I feel my body reacting differently to both high and light wind conditions, but I now understand what is happening. The clinic’s combination of dry land drills, sailing with us and reviewing videos is fantastic.
You guys have gotten Genevieve practicing her stance in the kitchen, I could not be happier that she got out there, went windsurfing and had a blast. I think she was starting to wonder how many hours she could lie on the beach and look pretty, then caught one dry land training session and needed to dive in.
Shawna and Matt, I just want to thank you for helping Mary Jo during the Aloha clinic. She said it was the most fun that she has had sailing in Maui which means we will get to go back! You have renewed her enthusiasm for the sport and she is anxious to get back on her board. It was a great clinic!
I attended the Aloha Clinic with Matt Pritchard & Shawna Cropas. It was excellent: I’ve never had things presented the way they did it, & I feel that they will have more influence on how I sail in the future.
Bit by bit, you chipped away the “bad paint” and offered us a ” new coat”. Only when it was finished could we see how much better it felt and looked. The video instruction with painful attention to details was indispensible.
Awesome time! I learned the fundamentals of wave riding, bottom turns and forward loops. Now I have some core skills to build off of when I’m riding on my own.
Aloha clinics have given me a true passion for windsurfing that I never had. I have confidence in high wind, low wind and am just having fun. I learned a lot about my personality (shortcomings) and learned that I need friends on the water!
