This winter we would like to invite you to join us for the freestyle progression camp in Africa! We’ve been looking for our winter destination to keep the progression going through the year. With different locations in mind, we decided to choose the windy paradise in Kenya in the famous Diani Beach!

We want to motivate you, give you inspiration, and help during the learning process, we don’t want to see you stuck on one trick a million times over! We want to challenge you and give you different tasks that will make you a more diverse and stylish rider!
