You will develop a solid base to longboard on your own and make downhill longboarding a constant sport in your life.
SOMETIMES YOU WIN X SOMETIMES YOU LEARN
With our coaching program, starting and experienced longboarders have the unique opportunity to hone their skills in a safe environment. Our goal is not only to teach you the (basic) principles of (downhill) longboarding but also to build your confidence so that you feel comfortable when you are on your board. The great time in the mountains and the lifelong friendships, you'll get for free! Below, we would like to explain exactly how we work:
LEARN TO LONGBOARD
Are you all fired up about the longboard craze and eager to learn your first steps? Or do you already have some weeks of experience? Are you an advanced beginner but would like to master the basic techniques? Then our 'Learn to longboard' course is for you! We start the week with the absolute basics of longboarding: we check your stance on your longboard, we train your stability on one leg so you can push and brake better, we work on your push and footbrake technique, we teach you your first turns and carves and we work together on your fall technique to avoid injuries.
START TO DOWNHILL
Do you master the basics of longboarding? Are you an experienced longboarder but want to control your slides & board better? Then our 'Start to Downhill' course is made for you! After fine-tuning your turning and carving technique, we switch to your (first?) slides. We'll teach you various exercises to perform slides that bring you to a complete stop, both for the heelside 'coleman' slide, as well as the toeside slide. Do you master this technique? Then we switch to your first pre-drift slides so you can slow down for turns in a controlled way without losing too much speed. Easy peasy? Level 3, here we come!
IMPROVE YOUR DOWNHILL
The real deal: training on our closed downhill road! Have you laid a good foundation with levels 1 and 2 of our Downhill Academy? Or are you an advanced longboarder and want to learn new slides? Then our 'Improve your Downhill' course is for you! We give you all the tools you need to descend a road in a safe and controlled way. With your full-stop (safety) slides on lock, we will switch to pre-drifting the turns. This is a slide technique that allows you to slow down in order to 'grip' the turn in a controlled way. Depending on your preference, we then work on your (first?) stand up slides. These slides provide you with a wide range of maneuvers to descend a road in a stylish but controlled manner. Want even more adrenaline? Get ready for level 4 - Advanced Tactics!
Do you already have a lot of experience in downhill longboarding and want to get ready for your first real race? Do you want to start faster and push harder? Do you want to tuck aerodynamically or draft more efficiently? Do you want accurate pre-drifts to make the most of the apex of your turn? Then the 'Advanced Tactics' course is for you! Our coaches with years of experience in international downhill races can give you tips and tricks like no other. With the necessary theoretical explanations and specific exercises, your technique will be refined. They will be there & happy to help with all your questions about racing, traveling, sponsorships, etc.
