I’ve been two times to the Rojabo sculling camp in Portugal (Avis) in April 2013, 2014 and 2015
Jakob and his partners have a coach’s ability to quietly observe and quickly identify key areas for stroke improvement and then are able to select simple words and phrases that make sense for me as a sculler. We have, in particular, spent time working on the catch (speed of entry, connection), and by indicating small adjustments the coaching has enabled me to make significant improvements.
Rojabo’s style is fun, but also reflective and thoughtful, and the way in which suggestions are made, and language is flexed or adapted to help the sculler really understand what’s intended, builds confidence and creates lasting “images” that are easy to remember. As such, the impact of the coaching even over a relatively brief session is significant and lasting.
Add to this a wonderful environment, good accommodation, and good company and I would not hesitate to recommend the Rojabo experience!
