What can I expect from the camp?
You arrive from 4 PM on Thursday. We welcome you warmly, serve some snacks, get you settled in one of our rooms (carribean, bohemian, ocean etc). We all do a short presentation of ourselves and start to get to know each other. Then it’s dinnertime, where we serve 3 courses.
Arild Kristiansen, owner and founder of the Surf School since 2004 in Varberg and former international teamrider with many years of traveling around the world to find the perfect kitesurfing wave, will one of the evenings tell us about his experiences and inspiring stories from the kite industry, talk some technology and give tips, as well as show some good films from their adventures.
Arild will bring two of his main instructors and very experienced kite- and foilsurfers. Jacob Victorin and Jesper Lundqvist. This wonderful trio of the Nordic region’s best strapless kitesurfers will definitely help you take your kitesurfing to the next level, whether it’s putting your first turns on a strapless board, getting started with kitefoil or more advanced tricks.
Tobias Johansson aka Tobbe is one of Villa’s ambassadors and IKO kite instructors and is always a big part of Villas camps. Tobbe is a solid experienced kitesurfer and instructor, and he’s one of the best in Scandinavia on boosting, with a jump more than 20 meters (at Villas homespot). He is here for you as a beginner or as an experienced rider who wants tips and tricks on boosting, looping or getting better at your twintip board.
Chris Lundberg, manager at Villa Surf Garden and IKO instructor, is here for ypu as a beginner or a more experienced kitesurfer who wants to advance on your twintip. Chris always has the customer in focus, and make sure that the right calls are made in relation to safe kite sessions.
When you stay at Villa for kitesurfing, you put on your wetsuit at the Villa and then we go with the Rawbike’s or car to the kite spot two minutes away. We have two nice spots 2-5 min away with electric bike/car, and many other spots close by with car. We will decide what spot to go to when we know the conditions and your wishes for the day.
Once we get back from a day at the beach, we have a warm outside shower where you can take of your wetsuit without getting cold so you don’t need to change at the beach and you can jump directly into the sauna or jacuzzi afterwards.
Every day we will have two sessions with activities, one before and one after lunch. Our mission is to kitesurf as much as possible, but we adjust the activities based on the weather good or if we want to do something else for a session. We offer beautiful SUP-adventures in the Amazonas of Sweden (Suseån), Fatbike tours on the cool trails right outside our door or we can go wakeboarding.
After an active and fun day, you can chill out in the jacuzzi, our warm saltwater pool or sauna, while waiting for dinner to be served!
To get the most out of your stay, it is super important that you tell us what kitesurfing level you’re at, your wishes for your stay and if you have any dietary requirements.
