Outrigger for intermediates and advanced level
We do not organize camps for beginners, as we firmly believe that the first steps must be taken on an individual basis, also taking into account our average ocean conditions. However, we do organize private introductory training courses for this purpose.
Learn how to handle, rig and care for OC-1 canoes. Learn how to assess weather conditions and sea safety, as well as tips to avoid problems on and off the water. Focus on stroke technique through video analysis, learn the technical exercises relevant to your stroke and spend time on the water practising. Learn balance and stability techniques, as well as when and how to apply them. Learn to surf and to understand the sea.
We will sail on the blue water and in difficult conditions, practicing and refining surfing on the high seas and reading the ocean. We can choose to row at various locations depending on the weather conditions, needs and desires of the rowers. We will also discuss the finer points of training programs and race planning strategies for different types of races. We will also provide you with training tips and tools, information on nutrition and how to develop a training plan to achieve your goals.
This is a camp specially designed for very experienced rowers who want to row on extreme courses and conditions on the high seas.
It is ideal for the experienced rower who simply does not know the area and how to get around, and who wants to do it with the right equipment.
Our camps are designed to educate and guide rowers in a more condensed time period. The camps offer an excellent opportunity to move to the next level by rowing with a minimum of time and commitment. These are one-day or multi-day events that devote all the time to a particular aspect of rowing practice.
For those who are already confident rowers, but want to be reassured that they are on the right track, and/or reaffirm their discipline in their training, we offer a camp that focuses on the finest details of technique and training.
Surfing the ocean is perhaps the most fun form of rowing. One of the greatest freedoms associated with OC-1 is versatility in wave conditions. The best rowers are distinguished by their ability to catch swells of all sizes, from all angles and by linking them together. Surfing is also the best way to turn a boring workout into an exceptional day on the water that makes you want to do more. Achieving this level of competence takes time in the ocean, but we can help accelerate the learning curve by sharing tips on what to look for and how to react. This camp will take you to the deep blue ocean where you will have the opportunity to try surfing with a coach to guide you and make sure you are safe.
You are a rower who does not know the area, but wants to do downwind or “solid” rowing. We can guide you on any route, even with an escort boat and a professional crew when you want.
It is one thing to be a good rower, and it is another to be able to raise others to the same level. This theoretical camp provides new coaches with key words and concepts for effective communication with new rowers, as well as recommendations for structuring training sessions to promote athlete health and improvement.
If you don’t want to row hard, but just explore, we have canoes of all sizes and can accommodate individuals or groups. You could row around the island of Lobos.
We do not organize camps for beginners. However, if you would like an individual initiation camp or if you know a group interested in an initiation camp, please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are unable to attend one of the planned camps and would like to organize private lessons and/or a private camp, please contact us and we will organize a lesson or camp specifically for you and/or your group.
We only work with new Allwave oc carbon canoes of the latest generation made in Italy.
