Christof Kirschner reports from the fifth full day of the 2011 JP / NeilPryde Young Gun Camp on Prasonisi…
The exhaustion from the last days of intensive training and the trip to Lardos yesterday evening is now clearly evident. For most of the kids day 5 began in ‘slow motion’. Many kids had to be knocked up out of bed today . But the morning allows for a little breather and some light wind training – but only for a short time, because after lunch the wind starts picking up continuously.
The waves are getting higher and higher, and while the youngest among the kids bravely struggle with the tough conditions, others prepare themselves for a first wave session with Kauli. Excitement and nervousness increase significantly. Tomorrow is competition day and everyone is still working hard on their moves in order to give a great show.
In the evening, when the waves were already mast high and the wind picked up even more , Kauli, Andy and Youp showed us what windsurfing is all about – meter high jumps, loops and a lot of sick freestyle action. After dinner everyone was off to bed quite early. After all, tomorrow everybody wants to be well rested for a big day.
