Giel Vlugt is back! This time in Africa’s Big Air mecca and home of the most spectacular Big Air events: Cape Town!
After his epic sell-out clinic in Tarifa earlier this year, we are stoked that the Viking is joining us again to give you a kite experience like no other.. Giel is an incredible coach and he will share with you his knowledge, passion and experience and surely push you hard to help you transform your riding to a whole new level.
When you’re not on the water, Giel will run through your technique tips and help you to improve your riding. This clinic is geared towards anyone looking to improve their freeride and Big Air riding, so whether you are working on your first boosts or looking to master the Megaloop, this is the clinic for you…
The time after the coaching is reserved for chilling at the beach, at the pool or hanging out at the kite house. You can also explore Cape Town’s incredible sights and nature, discover the amazing food and wine scene, and mix it up with some of the best Big Air riders in the game, who make Cape Town their home during the windy season every year.
Giel has burst onto the Big Air scene and is now one of the big players in the Big Air Kite League and was on fire for the KOTA earlier this year. Since then he has claimed the first ever Double Megaloop – one of the biggest steps forward in the world of kiteboarding in the last decade, and he continues to drive the Big Air side of the sport forwards at a blistering pace.
Giel has been coaching for 7 years, he has taught all levels of riding and his incredible passion for the sport shines through whoever he is working with.
He loves seeing riders progress and believes that with commitment and hard work anything is achievable. Giel and Tarifa are truly the ultimate combination for any aspiring twin tip rider!
This day is the official arrival day and you can kite freely in on the spots. In the evening we get together and have a BBQ at the tropical kite villa and will meet Giel and the hosts. There we will set your goals for the week and explain any further details.
Each day, Breakfast will be served from 9-11h and you can choose if you join some yoga or physical preparation. After this we make a plan for the day according to the conditions and hit the beach. Mostly we have lunch at the beach and kite as long as the sun is up. Or, we have a sunset drink at one of the beach bars. For the evenings, beside some video analysis, we will get to go together to some Tarifa’s incredbible restaurants.
Departure day. After a awesome week, this day is depending on your departure time, a free kite day or you make your way home.
Mid-way along Tarifa’s legendary beaches, Los Lances is a classic, with a wide sandy beach with plenty of space for launching and with plenty of space on the water to work on your Big Air game.
One of Tarifa’s most famous spots where you are likely to see the pro’s riding with the iconic Tarifa backdrop. Definitely the spot to get a few epic shots from your trip…
The heart of Tarifa’s kite scene, Valdevaqueros is where you will find ideal conditions for honing your skills and for taking your riding to the next level..
