THE LOOP - Boards Windsurfing

Windsurfing Magazine


UK Sailor News



The plan
Wannabe-loopers sign up for an intensive 4-day loop-off in one of Europe’s best locations, guided by John Hibbard, K-007. You will travel, sail, live and eat together to maximise the peer pressure element that is needed to “go around the front”. There’s no backing out! This unique experience has very limited spaces, to gain a place you must be quick.

What are you waiting for? Get in The Loop

The Location
Brandon Bay, Ireland

The Date
27th April – 1st May 2006

The Concept
Taking off from Stanstead with Ryan Air (cheap flight and excess baggage) on the early morning flight on the 27th April* the loopers will be met at Kerry Airport by John Hibbard who will take them and their kit**, in total comfort in the Looping Truck, to Looping HQ, a comfortable house on the shores of Brandon Bay, one of the most consistently windy locations in northern Europe. From there the crew will travel together in the looping truck to the best location for the day.

Instruction will be provided, giving insights in to the mechanics of the forward loop as well as top tips in achieving the forward loop. Video coaching, on water instruction and as much peer pressure as you can take are added to the mix. The evening meal will be taken in one of the many fine restaurants in the bay area, along with a few pints of the black stuff (ideal for painkilling), before returning to the comfort of Looping HQ for a well earned rest. In the morning, it’s straight to the beach for the next looping onslaught. The first to achieve and the most improved will win prizes.

Coaching, airport transfers, comfortable B&B accommodation and transport to the beaches is provided.

Go back to your local beach a hero. Don’t delay, book your place today!

Cost of The Loop – £250 (excl flights and evening meals). Anticipated total cost Inc flights and food £350, but that’ll depend on how much Guinness you drink and how quick you are at booking your flight!
