In April, thanks to HP Kajak og Fritid, I was lucky enough to be asked to come over and work with the top Danish surf kayakers. After some discussion, and finding out their needs, we decided to run a course in advanced surf manoeuvres.
I flew over on the Wednesday, giving myself a couple of days to take in the Danish culture, and do some sight seeing… Also got a few surfs in too!
I had recently been thinking of doing a surf trip to the Arctic, but after surfing the North sea in Denmark, I think I will stick to warm water!
Friday, we kicked off, getting some waves in, taking lots of video, and getting to know everyone. These guys are proper hard core, spending nearly 8 hours surfing in the north sea!! We retired back to the beach house, for an evening of food, wine, and video analysis!                                                                                                                                                                                     Saturday morning started early, with a slide show and talk on advanced manoeuvres, followed by scouting the beaches.. Then we were off! Surf was nice and clean, offering some power, and it was great to see all the guys progressing as the day went on!                                                                                                                                                                                                              I had such a brilliant weekend, and it was fantastic to work with, meet, and catch up with such a great bunch of guys! I really look forward to seeing them again in the Spring!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Big thank you to Jesper Tilsted and his family for their hospitality, and to HP Kajak og Fritid for organising such a great weekend!                                                                                                                                                                                                Jesper Tilsted…
“After a long and really useful and efficient day on the waves we see great progression in people’s surfing and Christopher Hobsons useful feedback really helps us, and now we are back in the summerhouse uploading videos for later analysis and downloading energy for a new and exiting day on the water”
