Oceansource Pro Clinic featuring John Skye and Nayra Alonso

Dates: 23-28 May

Location: Moulay Bouzerktoun

Minimum ability: Carve gybes and some wave experience

Clinic capacity: 12 maximum

This is a very rare opportunity, a chance for anybody to join PWA stars Skyeboy (four times UK champion) and Nayra Alonso (1st PWA Waves Sylt) for a coaching week in a world class, consistent, close to home and starboard tack wave location.

There are hundreds of clinics these days but this one’s special. John Skye, despite his many titles, is not just a winning machine. The judges put him on the podium because of his style on the water, riding waves and sixty foot up in the air. And Nayra is known as one of the few PWA women who bring real power into wavesailing. Whether you are a seasoned wavesailor, or just beginning to enjoy your jumps – John and Nayra’s huge experience and down to earth approach will have a dramatic effect on your sailing.

The clinic will cover everything including the mental aspects of getting psyched up and not psyched out, setting up your kit, launching and breaking out through the surf, and wave selection. From there on you choose what comes next. It can be anything from simply improving your basic jumping and riding and gaining confidence in stronger winds, right up to learning extreme moves such as forward, backward or push loops, or even wave 360s, takas and goitas.

The third star of the clinic is Moulay Bouzerktoun. Some say an average Moulay day is like the best day ever on the South Coast. We like to think of it as Morocco’s Jericoacoara, but a little bit more hard core. It’s certainly a fantastic place to host a clinic, and if you sail anywhere with starboard tack jumping and port tack riding – such as the UK’s South Coast – then this is the only clinic where you can learn in similar conditions to those you actually sail.

Oceansource is pleased to offer this exclusive Pro Coaching experience at the extremely competitive price of around 700 euros including airport transfers from Marrakech (for Friday flights*), equipment hire from Bouj Windsurf Adventure (Oceansource’s partner in Moulay), six days Pro Coaching with John Skye and Nayra Alonso and Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the Moulay White House.

We’re expecting this clinic to sell out very quickly, so if you’re interested in finding out more please contact Oceansource without delay. It’s also been scheduled to take full advantage of low cost flights – you can currently book a flight to Marrakech and catch this clinic for just £171 pounds with RyanAir (flying from Luton, Friday 22nd May to Friday 29th May). If you wanted to add a few days either side and fly Wednesday 20th May to Wednesday 3rd June you can fly for as little as £87. That’s return, and with all taxes included.

Neither these flight prices nor spaces on this clinic will be around for long, so contact us now if you think you might want to radically improve your wavesailing with a trip this May.

* A supplement applies if you come on a different flight and require your own separate transfer (the more people on a transfer the cheaper it becomes).

The smaller print

This clinic is open to everyone, not just extreme wavesailors. All we ask is that you’re able to waterstart, get round most carve gybes dry and stay upwind on a small board in strong winds.

Moulay Bouzerktoun can get very large waves, but the average size expected for this clinic in May is around 1-1.5 metre or head-high waves. These are a perfect size for improving as they have enough power to make them interesting but they’re not too intimidating. Wind wise May is ideal as it sits comfortably in the windy season but before the extreme windy season when it’s not uncommon to get blown off the water with 3.7s!

The White House is the premier place to stay in Moulay. It’s a restored colonial-style house situated right on the cliff edge with fantastic views of the break from two rooms and from its roof terrace. We’ve booked the whole house for the clinic. Accommodation will be in shared rooms and allocated on a first come first served basis (those who book sooner get the sea views!)
