Foiling Clinics: Portugal

Progress your kitefoiling in Portugal

Fallen in love with the latest trend in kitesurfing but just don’t know how to take your foiling to your next level? Well Planet Kitesurf Holidays has the solution to your problems. They have partnered with Progression Live to offer an epic guided kitefoil clinic in Portugal in September that you simply can’t miss!

More about the Portugal Camp

This kite hydrofoil clinic is best suited to kitesurfers who already own your own hydrofoil and have had a few sessions. You need to be able to waterstart and ride the foil. During the week you will get one on one sessions with Danny and Rob from Progression for improving your technique and learning to gybe and tack. During your time in Portugal you will enjoy six days of coaching with a group of no more than ten kiters with two coaches. The instruction will include video analysis, BBtalkin headsets for one-on-one session and Progression Live demos.

Some info on the location
The clinic will be based out of the centre at the brand new Hotel FeelViana. The hotel is located just a short walk from Praia de Cabedelo beach in the area of Viana do Castelo. Located in northwest Portugal, just a short 45-minute drive away from Porto, this area is extremely accessible from the UK and the rest of Europe. The area offers fantastic wind stats and flatter seas at this time of year which are perfect for some great foiling action. Protected by the harbour wall and the river mouth there is a huge open flat section of ocean to perfect your foiling skills.

And what about the hotel?
The FeelViana Hotel has to be one of Planet Kitesurf Holiday’s favourite hotels for 2018. This brand new sports hotel is set with a stunning natural location in West Portugal with lots of cultural and historical attractions nearby. The hotel has worked hard to preserve and respect the environment in which it is set, effortlessly integrating into the surrounding pinewood forest. When you are not foiling you can also enjoy mountain bike tours or SUP tours of the local area.

So what are you waiting for? Check out this kitefoiling clinic now, or contact Planet to book your spot!
