This Academy in Reunion was just amazing!! To be connected again with the bodyboarding community of the island...such a good feeling to see all the young kids, the new generations of today and tomorow with some older riders as David Huet!
It was also super cool to have my friends helping me as Kevin Hoarau, Raton, Laury Grenier, Charly Chapelet...The day before the course, we had like 10 people registred. In the morning we were 22 the first day and 26 the second day...a big group of riders with differents levels, style and personality which was amazing to work with!!
We were lucky to get some fun waves for everyone...it was like 3-4 ft the first day and 2-3 ft the Sunday. A perfect set up on this famous beach of Boucan Canot, where i caught my first wave back in 1994...
Since January now the nets are ON and this is what get this beach back to life which is awesome for everyone you live and love the Ocean!
We had a nice tent with lots of fruit and healthy food for the kids to learn how to eat well.
We did some specific training on how to get the best position on your board, how to get speed, how to move yourself in the water, how to paddle..etc..and everyone had a good improvement!
Learning bodyboarding is an endless mission as its endless to see the Ocean moving as blue mountains.
An amazing experience for me too, im looking forward for the next one, and the next one...etc
To be closer to all this kids that dream about bodybording..an healthy way to explore the Nature, to meet some people and to stay fit!!
A big thanks to the Radical Surf Club, The Reunion Island surfing federation and the Boucan Beach market for the support of this event!!
