Yesterday the group of David, Rafael, Paul and Oliver enjoyed a fun training session before they could rest their sore shoulders for a couple of flat days. Don't forget, surfing involves a lot of paddling! But it is a wholesome training that makes you one with nature, a feeling that is hard to describe!
Know this particular smile? It's the universal smile all surfers share, only a surfer knows the feeling. Yesterday, we welcomed a new group of beginners and Hannah was a true trooper, doing a double session on her last day with us. Hope to see you soon!!!
Yesterday we celebrated our alumni with the traditional leash toss. Once you went through Andy's paddle training in Crete you can proudly call yourself a Kalo Surfer. And once "you get the physics of it" (quote Roman) you can not help to be stoked. We say good buy to awesome guests Roman, Ann-Sophie and Wanja. Hannah will get the pleasure to to some master classes after graduating ;)
The early bird catches the worm. After a quick theory lesson on priority - very important for surf spots all over the world - we paddled out with our intermediates and were able to share many good waves.
After that it was time for the Beginners 2 and we made a huge progress, regarding position, posture, take-off and even turns!
Yesterday, our bay in Crete presented itself like the most famous beginner spots, like Portugal, France, England, and Fuerteventura. Powerful shallow white water, to train your take-off and more. After the first exercises intermediates Pierre and Thalie were ready to paddle out to surf green waves.
Pay good attention when Andy demonstrates a move! Today's beginner course was full of smiles and talented newbies. Again, we feel blessed to share the joy of surfing in Crete. Afterwards it was father-son-time. Karl-Georg and Alexander are already experts when it comes to paddling out and catching the waves. Surf until you drop!
Lorenz, Pauli, Eric, Karl, Diego, Liona and their parents are the newest members of the Kalo Surf kids surfing paradise in Crete. Yesterday from early the morning till the evening our beautiful bay had wonderful waves for our smallest member, just like a wave garden. A natural fun park in the middle of paradise. The pure joy in the kid's eyes is what keeps us going and makes for them a vacation to remember!
