The first time I went to Matt Pritchard’s clinic, 2 years ago, I was a newbie and wanted to learn to use the harness in ocean conditions and waterstart. This time, I want to safely go out further and faster, have more fun in the waves, and learn the fast/carve tack. Some people want to learn to wave ride/wave jump. Whatever you want to learn, Matt is a very patient and experienced teacher, and utilizes action videos and photos of yourself, a land simulator, as well as sailing behind you and giving great tips while you are on the water to effectively teach. Plus it’s a ton of fun!!! His website is: http://pritchardwindsurfing.com/
