Jibe Clinic 27-28 august... Great Moments!!!

It was fun weekend! Good weather, some nice wind and very motivated sailors how wanted to learn and improve their jibes.

Or, Amit,Roni and Eyal had different level and expectations which make interesting the exchanging of experience. 27 aug. 1srt day- We get to know the group. Eyal start explain the choosen techinic of JIBING (change feets first, keep sailing clew first, and since the turn is done, flip the sail); Juliana give the 3 tips that make her get the manouver: 1)Bent Knees to the center of the curve; 2)Make the turn as much as possible with the mast 90 graus; 3)Look the direction you want to go. At break time the... was enjoying to give tips to the other using the microfire 0.8- HotSails. Everybody rigged. The wind was medium-light. Juliana used DD 4.3 with 90l freestyle QUATRO Board and the men were chosing around 5,8 sail and bigger volume board. Only Or had a big gap in between the sails 5.0 or 6.5, rigged 5.0. The group had a chance to practice in the water- Eyal video while was sailing. Or had hard time with the 5.0 went to change sail, but when came back the wind was very light. After the practice the group could have a chance to see the video of the day made by Eyal. And the best listen the observations of the instructers. At 28 aug, Or had all day with 5.0 went for it with Eyal who was taking photos while sailing after he had a problem with his base, maybe in the same time I, Juliana, went in the water for look for him and couldn't find. End of the day, we talk, listen the group and the MOST IMPORTANT EVERYBODY FELT GOOD ABOUT THE JIBE CLINIC MADE BY SHELEFS.

Shelef Surf Activites and First Jibe Clinic

Shelefsurf desires to share with others their way of life, bringing their passion to each event design by them… from a private lesson, a day clinic to a vacation trip. The Shelef’s way of life is guided by nature…
If there is wind- WINDSURF…
If there are waves- SURF…
If there is a good weather- SUP…

Eyal and Juliana met in Maui 2003, windsurfing an international spot called Hookipa Beach. In 2008, they were sharing the same last name SHELEF. In 2010 they were blessed with a son called Yam (means sea in hebrew). This special couple manages to live in Israel, Brasil and Maui.

Eyal, Israeli, born in 18th dec. 1981, “sagitarius”, sail number ISR 43, pro windsurfer(www.eyalshelef.com), kitesurfer(instructor PKRA), free surfer (tow in, SUP), ex-pwa competitor and team rider of Quatro, Hot sails and DaKine.
Last Title: Israeli wave champion 2010.
“My passion for wind and water started at a very young age. I began sailing on a small sailboat called Optimist. Being involved in the water sport, I saw all the windsurfers in action and it inspired me to get into the sport. From the first time on a board, I felt the connection, and I knew that it would become my passion.
The biggest advantage in a professional windsurfer life style is that you get to know different cultures, to see great places and to make friends all over in the world.”

Juliana, born in 12th April 1978, “aires”, sail number BRA 124, yoga practicer since 2002 , windsurfer athlete(www.windmanas.blogspot.com), massage therapist, dentist, free surfer (tow in, SUP), founder of the Butterfly effect, ex-pwa competitor and team rider of Hot sails, DaKine and Starboard.
Last titles: 3rd South American Slalom 08, Freestyle champion Jericoacoara 08, Brazilian Wave champion 08. (2009- Juju got pregnant and was prohibition to compete, but able to do water sports until week 20 by doctor recommendation)
“Windsurf represents for me balance, liberation of adrenaline, freedom and peace of mind. It is a life time addiction! I started windsurfing at the age of 19 with the company of my sisters: Karla and Ivana. My young sister Ivana became my partner and took the windsurfing professionally. We shared the dream to be in Maui- Hookipa and to be part of the PWA. “

The activities organized by the Shelefs will be highly professional and lots of fun. They believe that each person has an individual approach of seeing and understanding things and combining their knowledge, techniques and experience will get the optimums for the participants.

Join them and you will not regret!

Rani from TRADE WINDS-HOT SAILS ISRAEL bringing the freestyle tour for the national windsurfing Israeli calender- with the european standart.
5 min heat-

EVERYBODY HAVE IN MIND THAT FREESTYLE IS FOR YOUNG KINDS.... I know the exist many new moves that is much easier when you are flexible and small...but FREESTYLE is not only this new moves.

Men and women have different way to do things and to enjoy... Just looking on the photos of I, Juju, and Eyal you can see the difference, but each one have your beauty.

I love to do Freestyle, even doubt I am far to be good like the young kids, but body drag, duck jibe, vulcan, heli tack... have their beauty as well.

I Hope the contest bring the windsurfing gathering which is the most important pn the sport!

See you there!!!

Juliana Shelef at MARKER magazine- ISRAEL

I will always keeping promoting women in water sports!

Thanks OREN from Hilton Club for thinking about me!!!!

Much Aloha Juju BRA 124
