That’s another school year done and a dreamy summer ahead of our junior members! The first Kids Club of the holidays saw 79 attendees tackling some pretty good waves and a couple of torrential downpours. There was an opportunity to study and identify a rip in the water during the warm-up and talk before the groups took to the water. It was satisfying to see the youngest groups ( ages 4 to 7 years ) practising trimming, speeding-up and slowing down exactly as taught. There are some very quick learners in those groups! Here’s a selection of shots from the day:
Harry De Roth has been in the water helping at almost every Saturday Club gathering this season, and it has been remiss of me to forget to draw your attention to his most recent video. Shot in 4K by ace videographer Greg Dennis on location in Australia, Indonesia and Hawaii, it documents a flight from our British winter to chase good waves in warmer waters at the start of 2017. Check it out here! Also featured is Melodie Shakespear from the Saturday Club volunteers and look out for a few cameo sightings of St. Ives Surf School instructor and Saturday Club regular Dan Harmon in there too!
After a Saturday lost to high tides, we returned on 8th July to dreamy conditions. A mild day and a regular supply of waves meant that all surfers had their fill of rides, and it proved to be a morning of outstanding performances. It was a real pleasure to witness the skills our young surfers displayed and an indication that our coaches’ lessons are being delivered clearly. Here’s a few pictures from the session!
