We are the only school on Maui that offers loop lessons and a full range of inverted aerials. Loop lessons are min 2hrs. These techniques are definitely advanced techniques for competent windsurfers who are in good physical condition. Our loop class concentrates on loops only! (there are three main types of loops, (Loops, Spins, and Rolls). The teaching methods have taken years to develop and this class can only be taught by our very top level instructors. We break down the loop into its essential elements and discuss them on the beach before going out on the water. On the water, we take you through a series of confidence-building and technique teaching exercises. These skills are combined into the loop techniques. Be prepared for some hard landings and big wipeouts. Don’t try this on your own without proper coaching. With this coaching, you don’t have to re-invent the loop. The knowledge you gain will give you more confidence to master the loop. *Bring your own gear. For safety reasons, we always wear helmets and wetsuits or impact jackets. You can rent a helmet from us however, we recommend that you ultimately buy one for yourself (preferably a GATH).
*Do not attempt any of these techniques without adequate training from a professional instructor.
