Ladies Wakeboard Workshop

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of hosting a Ladies Wakeboard Workshop over at Club Wake Park.  This was very different to my usual five corner cable coaching style as it was on a Wake Station (straight line cable).  So I usually coach a group of up to 25 people at my Ladies Mornings / Kids Clubs where everyone rides at the same time and they just head back to the dock whenever they fall off to get advice.  With the Wake Station I got to coach the girls one on one as only one person can be on the cable at any one time. This is a great way to coach someone as the feedback is immediate and you can see the progression each and every lap. 

So the day started with a group warm up session where we did some dynamic stretching to get the muscles engaged and we also got the heart rate up a tad more with a few burpies thrown in for good measure.  We then hit the water!  Each girl went out three times and progressed each time which was fantastic to see.  Once the riding was wrapped up and after a few healthy snacks we enjoyed a chilled Nalu Beads workshop for the remainder of the day, where the girls got to make something amazing with their new surf beads.

Well done to all the girls who got involved, I’m so stoked that everyone went away with at least one new trick under their belt!  Until next time! xx

Last week I had the pleasure of working with Mike from MacMac Photography again. The last time we shot together it was raining, grey and generally miserable, (he still got some amazing photos though!)  This time we lucked out, we had sunny weather and warm waters.  Here are some of the shot from our shoot…

After the Nationals (and the big air comp on Saturday), I headed over to Liquid on Sunday morning for my first heat in the Plastic Playground Qualifier.  This was an open event so I had to ride with the boys.  I had absolutely no chance of going through to the main event which is being held later on this month, as I was riding against all of the UK’s finest riders – but it was a rail comp and I wanted to ride.  As it turned out, I was nearly sick with nerves!  It was a much quieter event than the one I’d competed in just the day before and coupled with going up against the boys made me feel nauseous!  But I did it anyway.  I had my second heat eight hours later on that same day.  Both laps were ok, not my best and definitely not my worst.  I’m glad I rode in the end so happy days!  

Thanks I Love Wake for the photos x
