I haven't been there, yet. I'm going this summer - planning about the first week of June, but not definite. <BR>When are you thinking about going?

kaydee, <BR>I took our son there twice, once at the old location and once when they were just getting the present location up and running about 4 years ago. All the coaches are great to deal with and the environment is fun. good confidence builder and technical expertise from the coaches

says alot about the place when most of the male coaches were there almost 8 years ago and are still hard at it. Aaron/kurt/Ben/Kyle/Daryl/ all there when our boy was a young grom learning his first invert. tell PJ that tino's dad says Hey!!

Thanx all, I am planning on going second week September 2005. My bro, his girlfriend, my wife and I will attend. Looking forward to it. <BR> <BR>I just enrolled at the local gymnasium to improve my spatial awareness when attempting rolls etc. <BR>My coach is an ex Hungarian champ and has been at it for 20 years. He breaks everything down and makes it sooooo simple. <BR>I highly recommend a gymnastics coach to take your riding to the next level....he said that he is sure that most PROS have gym coaches considering the likes of Parks doing double half cab rolls.

WHAT ABOUT "The Projects"

check out the world wakeboard center in groveland.

yeah, i'm a former coach at the wakeboard camp. It's a great school and you're gonna learn a ton, ride a lot and probably wind up wanting to go back. if it's at all possible add a second week to your trip and everything will really start to roll, and if you're sore you won't feel bad about missing a set or two. fact is, no one i've ever met has coaching dialed so well as kyle, ben and kurt. i'm not sure who's coaching at the projects at the moment, but my buddy keith is living there and he's a ripper and a good coach.

A freind and I attend the camp about a year ago. It was a great time and I learned tons. The best part about the trip is after a long day of rideing there is a bar across the street, we would hit the bar about 9pm have a few cocktails, before you know its time to close the bar down, so we would stumble across the street, raid the frige then watch a few wake video, hit the sack, then do it all again the next day. But before you go I would definatly have your basics down. Like edging and body postions, because they start from the very beginning, and if you don't have that dailed in then all the gymnastics classes you are taking will be for nothing. Also learn to ride switched before you go... coach Joey is the "switch Nazi" he don't care what you work on as long as you work on it switch, It's THE SWITCH REVOLUTION...But for the most part the coaches where great and really want you to learn and have fun which is what wakeboarding is all about, If you have any questions feel free to drop me an e-mail.

balti 05-06-2005 5:06 AM

Shawn.E let us know how it went. BTW at what level is your riding? WHat do you plan to achieve there? <BR>

ruffneckrider 05-06-2005 10:17 AM

balti,yeh I will let you know as for my riding I suck that's why I'm going . Hope to achieve all the basics on edging and rope placement and maybe some basic inverts but most of all to just have fun and see some good ridding! and who knows maybe they can save me face plats!

balti 05-07-2005 2:02 AM

Shawn, we think alike!!! Good man.

We've just booked for first week in June. This will be our third time at the camp and its awesome, top coaches, top food etc all you've got to think about is riding. Best advice I can give is to ride as much as poss before you go to improve fitness - 3 sets a day for a week is fun but tough on the body.

santa 05-08-2005 7:04 PM

Go for it! <BR> <BR>I just came back from there. The coaches are great and you'll get plenty of riding. <BR> <BR>I was pleased to see people coming to this camp from all over the world - while there I met people from Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, U.K., Greece, Mexico, Canada - all in the same the same week! What's more, most of the campers were return customers, who have been coming once or even twice per year. <BR> <BR>I know I'll be returning. Hopefully next time I can stay two weeks. <BR> <BR>Santa.

I went to The Boarding School with Shaun and Travis, and I have to say that going to camp will improve your riding. Don't want to start a who's camp is better thing though, just sharing a couple items I figured out. <BR> <BR>A couple of things I realized after my experience were, all the training you do ahead of time will not adequately prepare you for riding hard for five straight days. You'll be better off than not for sure....but you will be sore and tired. Second, be prepared to know less than you thought you did. It's a good idea to go easy at the beginning and dial up the basics so you are ready for the next level. <BR> <BR>I came home and already notice I am way more relaxed and working less behind the boat. Toeside w2w 180's to the flats with a longer rope than I had last year. It's going to be a very good summer....oh and I will go back for sure! <BR> <BR>Eric

I went there a couple years ago... it was a lot of fun, very camp style though. All I have to say is O'TOWN WATERSPORTS!! <a href="http://www.otownwatersports.com" target="_blank">www.otownwatersports.com</a> you get your money's worth there.

nocoast 05-09-2005 11:05 PM
