Windsurfing guru, Peter Hart, came to visit the Calshot Flyers Windsurfing Club, this week, Wednesday, 3 June.
The conditions were perfect for a spot of freestyle: the sun shone and a reasonable breeze was blowing. Some 25 club members had the opportunity to windsurf with Peter, having a go at front loops, duck gibes, 360s, and quick tacks – everyone had to get their hair wet !!
A fantastic evening was had by all, and they have all been inspired to practice some freestyle moves. Nic Hibdige (13) said: “It was well cool sailing with Peter, he’s a legend, and he’s given me some tips for perfecting my spock”.
Based at the Calshot Activities Centre on the Solent, Calshot Flyers Windsurfing Club is for 8-18 year olds. It meets Mondays and Wednesdays every other week, and is aimed at those who already have some windsurfing experience (RYA level 1 or similar). It is an RYA Team 15 Club, which means there will be the chance to compete with other clubs in the south zone.
