Choose the profile subject wakeboard, if you are crazy about water and would like to challenge yourself as well as have a ton of fun hours in the water.

Everyone can take part, no matter if you are a beginner or an experienced wakeboarder. You will have ample opportunity to challenge yourself and have fun with your friends.

 

What are we doing?

We have fantastic wakeboarding conditions close to the school; a 2.0 system in the lake near Rønbjerg Feriecenter. With a 2.0 system only 1 person can be in the water at a time, but on the other hand you will be picked up as soon as you fall. This gives you the best possibility to develop faster than on a fullsize track. In addition to this, the teacher in charge of the cable can control the speed, which means that you can do it in your preferred speed.

We are going to prioritise wakeboarding as much as possible, bu in case of thunder or too much wind, we might possibly use the swimming pool in Rønbjerg, watch a wakeboarding movie or do joint strength/balance training.

Although we prioritise our time in the water, there are other aspects of wakeboarding. It is important to be in good physical condition and have a good balance, in order to get the best possible experience with wakeboarding. This is why strength and balance training is also a big part of the subject, since wakeboarding requires strength and endurance. And the better your condition, the more fun it is to do wakeboarding.

Balance training will primarily take place on indo-boards and slacklines. Strength training will primarily consist of core training.
Furthermore we will also work with the destination - we will prepare us for the culture we are going to meet, in order to meet it with knowledge, curiosity and openness.

 

The trip

The purpose of our trip is to experience another culture - feel the differences and get to know the nature and the surroundings of the destination.
It is exciting to travel and you learn a lot by trying your strength in new conditions.
Oftentimes the destination offers better conditions and at the same time, we will get closer to each other as a group and get to know each other better.

The trip will also be a goal for the group so we have something to work towards. During the trip, we will live and eat as they do in the place in question.

We will meet locals and "get under their skin" and let them "get under our skin".
