The SUP Suisse Downwind Camp is for everyone who has paddle Experience and is fit enough for up to 20 Km of Open Ocean a day. Should you have any doubts about if this is the right camp for you, don’t hesitate to contact us, we are delighted to discuss your abilities and help to identify your goals.
The Camp will offer you 2 Great Instructors, Fred Bonnef & Amaury Dormet, two legends of Open Ocean Paddle that are motivated to bring you to the next level. Safety is key in the open ocean, and both Instructors are at the highest possible level, not only to coach you throughout the week, but also to provide the best possible safety on our Ocean runs.
The Camp will provide you with all the necessary gear, High-end SUP Ocean Hardboards from different Brands, Professional adjustable Paddles, safety vests, Leashes, Neo Shirts etc. There will also be 2 or 3 OC2 and OC1 (Outrigger) available for you to play, you should, however, bring experience if you want to try an OC1, min requirements are that you’re Able to Turn and get back on your OC in Ocean Conditions, and that you already have experience with the paddle technique. Should you not have the min requirements, you are welcome to start on the OC2 with the master Amaury himself.
Depending on the conditions, we will also try to run a SUP Surf lesson in between, with both Shorter SUP surfboards and 14′ Ocean Boards. To strengthen our Surf skills, primarily with the Ocean Boards.
We will be picked up and driven to all Runs and Spots by the camp team. The start for most of our runs will be right at the beach in front of the Hotel, it could not be more comfortable. Additionally, to this shuttle service, we will have our own SUP Suisse Bus for us to be able to travel around Tarifa.
