"Maui is one of the best places in the world to advance your personal windsurfing skills while taking in the most gorgeous setting on earth," says Matt Pritchard, one of windsurfing's elite who has traveled the world to compete.
Pritchard, a former PWA Super XWorld Champion and World Tour title winner (2002, 2004, 2005) and US National Champion (2006), will lead the "Aloha Windsurfing Clinic" for Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, November 10-15, 2013, offering a water sports clinic that will focus on both windsurfing and stand up paddling. Registration is open for this popular clinic.
Joining Pritchard in providing daily instruction is Shawna Cropas, who was Britain's female Wavesailing and Triple Crown Freewave Champion (2002, 2003).
The dynamic duo call Maui home and, through their clinic, are dedicated to spreading the joy of windsurfing and stand up paddling.
This Four Seasons Resort Maui experience is open to participants at all levels. In all cases, these pros work individually with students. "Our goal is to introduce students to windsurfing, stand up paddling and general water awareness in a gentle, safe environment," says Cropas, who emphasizes that the only prerequisite is a love for the ocean and wind. "Students will return home more fit than when they left because these sports do have a way of whipping you into shape," she adds.
The daily program starts with breakfast at DUO, one of Four Seasons Resort Maui's three award-winning restaurants. During the mornings, the coaches will work with students on building skills and learning techniques. They also will review video footage from the prior afternoon's on-the-water instruction. After a day of sun and surf, everyone can enjoy the many luxury services and amenities Four Seasons Resort Maui has to offer.
The clinic is part of the five-star luxury resort's popular Unforgettable Events, a series of one-of-a-kind experiences in which celebrated athletes and experts from many fields teach a diverse array of special retreats, programs and clinics.
Pricing starts at $5950 for a single participant. For multiple participants/family pricing and to make reservations, contact crissa.hiranaga(at)fourseasons(dot)com.
