A hugely successful clinic with Marc Pare and Victor Fernandez at the Duotone Pro Center in Tenerife

Expectations were set high for the 10 participants joining the clinic of Marc and Victor last week in El Medano, Tenerife, but their feedback would say our pros absolutely smashed it! What was clear from the week was lots of big smiles, lots of learning and lots of improvement.


The main themes of the week were jumping, forward loops and an introduction to wave riding and whilst the conditions initially didn’t play ball, the slower start was the perfect setup for breaking down the moves and getting the top-secret tuning tips from the boys about the Duotone and Fanatic wave equipment. Luckily with two centres full of Duotone and Fanatic equipment (Duotone Pro Center Tenerife and Tenerife Windsurfing Solution (TWS)) there were plenty of toys to go around to make sure everyone could try the latest toys on offer.

The stage was set, equipment tuned, techniques understood, and on day 2, the wind kicked in for a jumping session in the morning and a wave riding session in the afternoon, with the same setup for day 3. The clinic was a huge success all round, but don’t just take it from us, hear what the people on the ground had to say… 


Joost Freke, Centre Manager at DPC:

"Thanks to you guys for putting down such a great clinic! Super vibes and even better performances! I’m really impressed by Victor Fernandez and Marc Paré their approach in explaining and sharing their knowledge! And of course the commitment from all of the participants was amazing to see! Thanks for the epic days and definitely looking forward to next years edition!"


Victor Fernandez, PWA Wave World Champion and Clinic Coach:

"The clinic in El Medano was great, I think it was very well organized and thanks to the Duotone Center and their team it made the rest much easier for me and Marc to be more dedicated with the participants in the water and during video analysis. We had 10 participants with very similar windsurf levels. Most of them looking forward to to learn the loop but we had to go one step back to start doing better jumps to get the confidence for the forward. In conclusion, 3 days of windsurfing in 2 different spots and great people around us! I can’t wait for the next one!"

Marc Pare - PWA Wavesailor and Clinic Coach: 

"“Victor and I were really happy with the outcome of the clinic. For me this was my first experience in running some clinics, so it was a different challenge. I’ve always liked looking deeply into the moves and technique, so it was really cool to be able to share that knowledge to other people. It was great seeing them happy and that the coaching was working for them!”


Tony, Participant: "I enjoyed very much being part of this event. Especially the sincere individual attention that both Victor and Marc were providing to help all of us improving on the points we wanted to. You guys are both great athletes, class act champions and waaay overqualified coaches! Thanks to DPC and TWS for the set-up and organisation of such event." 




Sarah, Participant: “The boys’ hands on coaching approach and incredible personal level made it feel like there was always one of them watching, and every time I (inevitably) crashed, they were there to help me work out what I’d done wrong and what to do better next time. It was also amazing to watch them absolutely ripping as well – there’s nothing quite like a PWA superstar giving you a forward loop demonstration over your head!!” 

Tom, Participant - “This clinic was fabulous! I didn't have so much wave experience before, but the clinic really boosted my level. Victor and Marc are really hands-on and correct you on the water and after with the video analysis. It's incredible to have the advice of top athletes! I already improved my sailing position and am now starting to get real floaty jumps thanks to their tips. I have the feeling they gave me loads of advice that I now have in my head and can keep working on at home to keep improving at my own pace.”
