JP Young Gun Classic 09


Ragazzi, solo sotto i 18 anni purtroppo… state caldi: l’annuale appuntamento con JP YOUNG GUN CLASSIC, avrà luogo quest’anno dall’11 al 18 ottobre prossimi, nelle cosidette “the cold Hawaii” e più precisamente nello splendido scenario di Klitmøller in Danimarca. Le novità sono tante a comiciare dal numero dei partecipanti: se l’edizione 2008 ha visto la partecipazione di 55 Young Guns dei paesi scandinavi, accompagnati da più di sessanta genitori, quest’anno si è puntato molto più in alto. Infatti gli organizzatori di quello che è destinato a diventare il più grande evento di windsurf per ragazzi, si aspettano almeno 80-100 Young Guns scandinavi, ma anche una partecipazione massiccia da parte dei ragazzi, provenienti dagli altri paesi, essendo quest’anno un evento internazionale!
Il programma è veramente succoso… ad iniziare dalle guest stars presenti: se non vi basta il giovanissimo campioncino Morgan Noireaux, HI 101, che quest’anno fa parte del JP team, che ne dite del tre volte Wave World champion Kauli Seadi, BRA 253?!

JP Young Gun Classic – Klitmøller – 2009
With Star Guest 3 x Wave World Campion Kauli Seadi BRA253
JP Young Gun Classic (YGC) is an annual youth windsurfing camp running in October in the Danish North Sea spot Klitmøller - also known as The Cold Hawaii. The camp is organized by JP-Australia and NeilPryde in Denmark with great help from Danish Young Guns and their parents.
YGC is first of all a windsurfing week and about meeting with other Young Guns from around the Globe. The Young Guns learn how to act and react in the North Sea, and in addition to that, they also get a chance to compete in the disciplines wave, freestyle and slalom.
JP Young Gun Classic 2009 is open for all levels and ages up to 18 years. And for their parents too!
Until now this was a Scandinavian event but now the organizers want to open it to Young Guns from all over the world.
Kauli Seadi the Brazilian 3 times Wave World Champion is scheduled to attend this event and help the kids on and off the water.  He is known for his charming personality and has been a big attraction for the kids at other Young Gun events.  Also Morgan Noireaux one of the international JP/NP Young Gun riders who is born in France and lives on Maui will come and looks forward to have fun in the slightly colder water than what he is normally used to with the other kids.
YGC 2009 takes place in the Danish school holidays from 11-18th October, and the daily programme is all depending on the weather on the day. All participants meet in the mornings where they get a briefing by pro sailors who are also there to help during the week. Most Young Guns prefer to stay in Klitmøller and windsurf, surf, stand up paddle, play beach volley or hang out with each other. If the wind is up (and it most often is), there is choice to go windsurfing in three different spots:
Klitmøller – the famous spot with sandy beaches and sideshore conditions – it works perfectly in winds from south to west for both wave beginners and pros. It was originally a fisherman’s village, and also today, fresh fish is landed daily and directly on the beach. Klitmøller is the central spot for most of the action during the week, and also where most families rent vacation houses.
Hanstholm – 10 minutes north of Klitmøller – is the industrial harbour and the spot called Middles. The best spot is just next to a fish factory, so it is easy to find it, if your nose works well…
Wind directions from west to north west give this spot absolutely world class wave conditions. No parking problems. Lots of space for everyone. Less experienced Young Guns like it too, because the inner section is flat.
Krik Vig – this spot is app. 45 minutes south of Klitmøller, but it is worth driving for! Krik Vig is a unique freestyle spot in the Limfjord behind the protecting sand dunes. Young Guns are aware that any trick is possible here. And the pros know it too!
The organizers hope that through this event there will be international friendships and connections amongst youngsters around the globe. The goal is that those kids stay in touch through modern communication and become opinion leaders for the sport of windsurfing in their home countries.
Facts: the dates for 2009 are 11-18th October. The entry fee is expected to be 30 Euros. Included in the fee is a yellow event jersey that must be worn during the event, so all Young Guns and pro supporters can recognize each other.  Approved floatation vest is compulsory.

In 2008 we had 55 Young Guns from Scandinavia and more than 60 parents combining the YGC event with a family vacation in the Klitmøller area. For 2009 we expect 80-100 Young Guns as we are going international, and we hope they will all bring their parents too. Various social arrangements are made for parents in the evenings.
Most of the Young Guns are there to learn and have fun mainly. The level goes from first time harness and water starting, - and into loops and spectacular waveriding for the best.
Some YG’s want to compete as well, and for them there will also be wave, freestyle and slalom contests. Judging will be handled by Pro riders including Lars Petersen and Kauli Seadi, and they will also be giving their best tips and tricks to the newcomers.
Parents are expected to join their kids, as they are needed for transportation and cooking! In return, parents meet with a lot of other parents from many different countries, and it usually gives them a great time too!
Many agencies rent vacation houses at reasonable prices from around 400 euros per week. You can google the many options by typing “Klitmøller sommerhus”.
A windsurfing shop is located right on the spot in Klitmøller.
