On Friday 1, a technical race will take place, addressing aspects like paddling technique, map planning, ocean analysis, beach starts, navigating waves, buoy turns, and strategies for overtaking other competitors.
Saturday and Sunday will feature athlete meetings, race map reviews, strategies, visualization, warm-ups, participation in technical races, and post-race evaluations. Baxter will also provide a general analysis of participation, customize training programs, and conclude with a farewell dinner on Sunday. Only a limited number of participants will have the opportunity to join this unique experience.
Professional surfer and WaterWoman, Luchy Cosoleto, will be hosting a SUP SURF clinic. As a two-time world champion and two-time Pan American champion, Luchy will share her experience and knowledge.
The event will kick off at 9 a.m. at Hotel Sayulinda with a talk to assess the levels and goals of each participant.
