WHAT WE COVER

STRIVE TO SURVIVE

It’s easier than gybing

Freeride & Freewave skills

In Daymer you can get a mix of conditions depending on wind forecast / swell and start of tide.  So we adapt to suit what we’re faced with.

We’ll develop this fundamental Windwise skill and ethos, that is the DNA of windsurfing progression. It’s the missing link for all your windsurfing moves!

  • Kit tuning and setup for the conditions

  • Use the 'Warrior' for all transitions

  • Improve your shortboard control

  • Work on gybe variations

  • Develop wave selection and timing

  • Improve your jumping and wave riding
