The wind machine is on for the 7th annual Young Guns Camp in Prasonisi. Over 30 highly motivated teenagers from all over Europe were welcomed with 30 knots of accelerating wind. Pro German Freestyler Tilo Eber is replacing Manuel Vogel this year. He is not only one of best Freestylers in the world, he is also an experienced windsurfing teacher taking over the high performance group of the up and coming pros and pro wanna-be pros.
Our second new coach is surf magazine tester Marius “Super Mario” from Sylt.
“I am so happy to be able to participate at this event”, he admitted after his first awesome teaching day. He is in charge of seven 16 and 17 year old windsurfing beauties. Who wouldn’t be happy with this chore?
The Austrian Franky “Spider” Lewisch – also from the surf test team – as well as the German-American Steve Chismar (the new SUP ambassador and head coach) are just as happy to be instructing the young and motivated bunch.
After a warm-up session in the flat water in the morning, strong winds allowed an unbelievable head start in the waves. Six more days to go with over 30 hungry Young Guns waiting to show the action to the pro riders Andy ”Bubble” Chambers and Worldchamp Steven Van Broeckhoven arriving tomorrow on Rhodes Island.
