KiteWorldWide launches kitesurfing Slice of Life Clinics with Tom Court

KiteWorldWide, the kitesurfing travel specialist is hosting a series of exclusive kiting clinics this year with international pro kitesurfer Tom Court.

Tom Court has spent his life travelling to the planet’s best kiting hotspots to compete in the world’s toughest competitions. In 2018 Tom is leading six “Slice of Life” clinics with KiteWorldWide in Morocco, Sri Lanka and Brazil for people of all levels. A week-long holiday offers five days’ of intensive training for those who want to progress quickly and enjoy expert training from the world’s best.

Each morning starts with a fitness, yoga and nutrition session led by Tom’s fitness instructor fiancée Sophie Mathews. Sophie takes guests through a “Fit for Function” workout that will get their bodies ready for a day’s kiting on the water.

Tom then coaches kiters each day through one-to-one sessions, complete with video analysis so guests can watch their progress onscreen and learn how to overcome mistakes. Evenings are spent socialising and partying with fellow kiters in the close-knit communities that KiteWorldWide are known for creating.

Tom says: “There is no better way to progress in kiting that to spend an intensive holiday learning new tricks with a pro. Guests are always surprised at how quickly their kiting develops in such a short time. Plus, we make the Slice of Life clinics totally unique by coming together and having great fun off the water in the world’s best holiday destinations.”

Each seven-night stay includes five days’ of private and continuous training, breakfast, lunch and dinner with water served at meal times, fitness training sessions each day, video analysis and photos, kite trips and downwinders as required, event t-shirt and North kiting prizes at the end of the week for the person who has progressed the most. Kite rental can be added as an optional extra.

Longer stay packages are available, or guests can join both clinics at the destination.
