Many people are too nervous to come here to the camp. Some people tend to think that everybody at the camp is at a pro level and that they will be laughed at for trying to do something new like ride outside of the wake. Kristin talks about how our system helps everybody learn at every level. Here is an excerpt:
I was nervous, like anyone can be, learning something new– especially along side the other campers who were there to learn tricks like the Backside 360, 540, Scarecrow, Tantrum… none of which I had a clue much less would I dream of learning. In spite of the butterflies in my stomach, I was determined to learn how to wakeboard more confidently.
We went out for our first ride, and our second, and third and in the blink of an eye the five days had passed and we had ridden a total of 15 sets (more than I’d typically ride in one summer)! Gone were the butterflies and my skills and confidence quadrupled.
It was on the trip home that I realized how much my experience mirrored elements of the ideal learning experience. Here are some thoughts on what made it ideal.
