Shortly after there will be a daily briefing that will explain the days route, conditions, hazards and highlights of the downwind by the captain, and any important logistical information for the day. It is also a good chance to ask any questions you may have.
We will have a daily, detailed video review with Guilly, to analyse the images from the day before and get tips from the coach.
After the briefing we will leave our luggage at the reception for our drivers (please, ask at front desk to help you if needed) to be packed into the vehicles, please ensure this is done promptly as it allows us to be ready to go as soon as the wind conditions are right. At 10am we will be on the beach ready to go.
It is important that all belongings are clearly tagged with your name, to ensure we can organize your bags to the rooms where possible. It is important that nothing is left in the rooms and that all belongings are together in the reception at this time.
You can separate your small bags (with computers, cameras, passports, money, cards) to go inside the car. Our kite gear and other equipment will have to go outside of the
car or in trailers.
