The windsurfing adventure of a lifetime

Two luminaries of the women’s windsurf circuit Oda Johanne, a Severne rider, and multiple-time world champion Sarah-Quita have teamed up to host windsurfing clinics across the world. The latest edition just happened in Karpathos, Greece.

Whether one identifies as a seasoned windsurfing pro or a curious beginner, here’s a little glimpse of how a typical clinic with Oda and Sarah-Quita goes down.

In Oda’s own words

From the very first day, I could tell that they all had a true passion for windsurfing. Their determination to learn and improve was great to see. It was inspiring to watch them push themselves beyond their limits, both physically and mentally, with each passing session. We had everything from 20 to 45 knots of wind. Some days very very extreme! But everyone pushed through their comfort zones and gained experience.

As their coaches, we made it our mission to create a motivating environment. But that was very easy with such great groups. Always pushing one another to reach new heights. BB Talkin coaching, filming, and video analysis were helpful tools we used when we were coaching every day.

One of the most rewarding aspects of coaching this group was to see the support for one another. They formed a bond, helping and encouraging each other along the way. The positive energy from the groups fueled their progress and created a dynamic atmosphere on and off the water. 

It was an absolute pleasure to witness their individual growth as windsurfers. Some wanted to nail the perfect planing gybe and learn chop hops. Some went for freestyle, and some nailed their first waterstarts! No matter the level, windsurfing is a sport for everyone.

Looking back on our time together with all of them fuels my passion for coaching even further.

Next up will be our Windsurf University camp in Brazil from the 28th of November to 1st of December.
