Surf Sail Kite Camp 2022

Program 2022
8-12 years old, 13-17 years old

Surf Sail Kite Camps are weekly intensive courses of windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing for all skill levels for the age 8-17 years old following the programs and directives of the FIV (Italian Sailing Federation).

Participants choose one of the three sports proposed and will devote as much time as possible of the day to this with the aim of making the maximum possible progression in a week. In fact, the daily program foresees, in moments of absence of wind, unfavorable weather conditions or the need to cool down from practical activity in the water, alternative activities usually carried out in meetings and in FIV sailing schools that have training value to support the sailing sport chosen and fall within the “game of sailing” provided by the training programs of the FIV. These are both motor activities on land or in water for the development of coordination and conditional skills, and playful activities on land to enrich the theoretical knowledge of sailing. In the 22 years of Surf Camp we have carried out so far, we have included a large number of these alternative activities on the program. To name just a few, here is an example: sup, canoe, bike, relay race in the water, circuit training, orientation games, didactic treasure hunt, viewing of educational videos and activities carried out in the water, seafaring arts, dexterity workshops, game theory and many others.

SURF CAMP

The experience gained in 22 years of camp, as well as in 36 years of teaching, allows us to achieve the best results at all levels from beginner to freestyle. When the conditions allow it, the most motivated can stay in the water for up to 5 hours a day followed by our instructors.

There is no limit to progression: in the face of a clear improvement, the transition to the next level is expected.

SAIL CAMP

By focusing on sailing dinghies, thanks to the experience gained in 22 years of camp as well as in 30 years of teaching, we train technically well-prepared sailors. The use of modern boats, such as Laser Bug, Open Bic, Laser Pico, Laser Bahia, Laser Dart 16, RS Zest, RS Quest, allows a complete training from single, to double, to multihull.

KITECAMP

The teaching activity takes place exclusively with the support of the specific fleet of Tabo boats with launch directly from the water. Communication takes place with the use of radio transmitters.

For the best achievement of the Camp goals the minimum age required is 11 years.

AIMS

The primary purpose of the Camp is to learn or deepen sailing sports in direct contact with nature and share the experience with others having the same sporting interests.

Paying particular attention to the goals to be reached, the staff of  Tabo Surf Center is committed to ensure that each participant can:

– learn the correct techniques of windsurfing, sailing or kiting
– learn to steer windsurf, kitesurf or dinghy boat alone
– acquire the seafaring spirit and improve aquatic skills
– know the wind and learn how to exploit it
– socialize and collaborate with course mates.

A peculiarity of our Camps (already applied to our scheduled courses) is the progression without limits: both for the beginner level and for the more experienced, the instructors do not set limits on learning, but aim to reach the best possible level by also providing the move to the next level if necessary.

LEVELS

The Camp is aimed at both total beginners and those who are already experienced.

During the day groups of students of the same level alternate in the water according to the wind conditions and according to the level of skill. The participants of the three disciplines windsurfing, sailing, kitesurfing stay together during the activities except for the main activities in which they are divided in groups per level. The teachers are completely dedicated to a specific group.

GIOCOSPORT OF SAILING AND WINDSURFING for beginners aged 8-12 years
In line with the directives of CONI, the Italian Sailing Federation has developed a teaching method reserved for very young people to teach them the sport of sailing and windsurfing and kite in the form of a game. Putting aside any performance claims, in this learning phase GIOCOSPORT is today the most advanced teaching method to help to acquire the correct technique while having fun and to enhance group activity. Tabo Surf Center has specialized in this for the past 22 years of Camp.

RACE TRAINING for the advanced level of windsurfing

For the guys who are already part of Tabo Techno 293 and Firerace 120 competitive team, it is possible to intensify training during the Camp.
For the guys who have the level but have never participated in the team, during the Camp it is possible to approach the world of regattas and try the youth boards of federal interest.

INTERNATIONAL CAMP

The Camps are open to Italians and foreigners. One of the aims of the International Camp is to stimulate children to use the English language and to appreciate the advantage of being able to communicate with people of different nationalities without creating didactic situations that evoke the school environment. Windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing lessons are held for Italians in Italian anyway.

To facilitate communication in English, circumstances are created and activities are organized that require the use of a foreign language.

The camp therefore wants to be an opportunity both for exchange and for approaching English in a pleasant atmosphere, useful both for those who already speak fluent and for those who only know the basics.

THE CENTER AND THE STAFF

Tabo Surf Center, specializes in water sports Windsurfing, Sailing, Kitesurfing. The Center has the most modern equipment, including special ones for children. The quality of teaching is guaranteed by our staff of instructors: motivated by a passion for youth activities, they specialize in teaching for the age group between 6 and 17 years. The qualifications of the two head instructors are: DEGREE IN MOTOR SCIENCES; FIV INSTRUCTORS (Italian Sailing Federation) II and III level; FIV TRAINING TEACHERS; VDWS and IKO INSTRUCTORS.
To guarantee safety, the students are followed in all activities by the technical staff and an educator who, for those who need an overnight stay, is a figure present 24 hours a day.

SAFE SPORTS AREA

Tabo Surf Center is particularly suited to youth multisport activities in the greatest safety: The building is located in an area with a generous field of 40,000 square meters on the lake with a beach and football pitch, beach-volley, basketball and tennis courts.
The lake is completely different to the typical lakeside environment: the bottom is sandy and the water shallow (1 meter) up to 60 meters from the shore, and the stretch of water where the lessons are held is surrounded by three banks. These are certainly the safest conditions for beginners and young children.
Safety in the water is guaranteed, as well as by the mandatory safety equipment, also by the presence of boats for safety.
During the day the activity will take place outdoors in the area adjacent to the Tabo Surf Center and in the waters in front of the nautical base and in case of bad weather it will continue under the terrace of the Watersports Club.

THE EQUIMPENT

Tabo Surf Center is equipped with the most modern equipment available.

– WINDSURF: 100 RRD boards and 120 RRD sails. All materials 2022 with the novelties of the brand for every level from beginner to funboard. A wide range of sails for the little ones starting from 0.8 square meters guarantees the use of equipment suitable for every need. In addition, the BIC Techno 293 and Firerace 120 boards will be used to bring participants closer to the federal youth activity.

– SAILING: our boat fleet satisfies every type of need from single, to double, to the boat for larger crews. The boats available are: Laser Bug, Open Bic, Laser Pico, Laser STD, Laser Bahia, Laser Dart 16, RS Zest, RS Quest.

– KITESURF: the range of new RRD 2022 boards and kites, complete with all sizes, is made available to meet everyone’s needs.

ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS

ACCOMMODATION

The 6-days courses allow two different options: only “daytime” from 9.15 to 19.15, or, for those who need it, “24H” with overnight stay in a tent from Sunday evening to Saturday morning.

In order to guarantee social distancing in compliance with the anti-covid19 measures, the last 2 years the overnight stay have taken place in single tents; the double or triple tent was allowed only in the case of 2 or 3 siblings who could share the same tent. The educator’s tent was placed in the center.

For this year, according to the new rules, we will continue to use single tents or re-propose military tents with 16 beds each.

In the case of the first option, for single tents only, we offer 2 solutions:
1- Bring your own from home, (maximum width 120 cm, length 210 cm).
2- Pay the additional fee of 25 € for the use of the sanitized tent owned by Tabo Surf Center
For double or triple tents for 2 or 3 brothers it is necessary to bring your own tent.

The journey from Tabo to the restaurant will be done by bicycle: it is essential to bring your own or rent it directly from the Tabo.

MEALS

Breakfast for the participants who accommodate, will be consumed in the campsite or in a sheltered place in case of bad weather. In the last 2 years, to follow the Coronavirus dispositions, breakfast was provided from home (bring your own) for the 6 days. Tabo Surf Center provided disposable cutlery, cups and napkins. We are waiting for the new dispositions for this summer.

Lunch will be consumed outdoor or under the terrace at Tabo Surf Center. Participants in “daytime” mode must bring a packed lunch from home; participants in “24H” mode are provided with the meal in single portions by the organization.

Every participant must have a personal bottle for water with his name written on it.
