If you plan to visit us in the winter (December – February), we recommend you to take along with you a long wetsuit (5 mm thick). On request, you can rent waterproof radio helmets from us, which are very useful in the last hours of the training, during a body dredge or when you are already on the board. Even at a considerable distance from your instructor, you will still clearly hear his commands.
