A word from Mallory de la Villemarque on his latest Kite Clinic promoted by Fun & Fly and hosted by Club Mistral Skyriders Dakhla from the 10 to 18 June 2011:
“The Fun&Fly Kite camp in Dakhla was just an amazing week with lots of riding and great evolution from the 6 guys I have been coaching. We were very well welcomed by the whole team of Océan Vagabond and Club Mistral which has received and helped us very nicely.
The team of instructors and assistants at Club Mistral is the friendliest I have met so far, everything is well organized for us to choose the kite material, everyone is helpful and the instructors are all local Moroccan guys always ready to help and with a huge smile… Plus they are great riders.
The evolution of my students was very pleasing to watch, they learnt new tricks everyday and they all had different levels, from doing a nice jibe and going upwind properly to the huge kiteloop, backloop and first surface handle passes. The progress was fast and they all enjoyed as much as I did riding up to 6 hours a day, except when their bodies could not hold it anymore… lots of sun, blisters on the hands and painful muscles from so much exercise… but we certainly took advantage of every second by kiting, video and photo shooting to analyze the mistakes and new tricks, stretching after the sessions and ending with a few mojitos after a long day of exercise…
Spending some time in Dakhla at Océan Vagabond surprised me and it is certainly in my top 3 places to go to improve your riding and chill out in a nice surrounding where there is only a few things to think about: Kite, kite, kite, relax, nice food, good sleep, good atmosphere, and meeting other people on holidays enjoying as much as you do!!! “
A word from Marie Deflandre, wife of Ocean Vagabond’s General Manager Sebastien Deflandre on her experience kiting with Mallory:
“Kite camp Club Mistral Dakhla: Sensational!!!! One week to the max; 4 to 6 hours of kiting every day with Mallory was, as we say "Tip Top"! I am not what you would call a fearless kiter (mother of three small kids), and I have never really attempted to kite like a pro, but in Dakhla after one week of following Mallory’s every move and word of advice (De la Villemarque, vice champion of France 2008): Jump, Backloop, jibe, pop ... and there was something new gained for every level in the group: unhooked , handle pass, S bend, railey...
A big thank you to Mallory for his patience and his pedagogy on the water. I’m already signed up for his next Dakhla clinic …”
Club Mistral Dakhla will host Mallory de la Villemarque and other pro-riders Victor Hays and Sofian Hamaini for kite clinics in September and October. For those that want in on Dakhla this summer, there are still kite rentals and advanced lessons available throughout July and August.
