From June 26th to July 3rd, 2011, a new and unique workshop takes place in the Camino Surf Camp: Sports meets Music. Three professional jazz musicians from Austria join the Camino Surf Team, and together we offer not only music- and improvisation-classes in the mornings, but also various sports courses in the afternoons.

Our special-deal package includes the "Surf'n'Roll" workshop, accommodation in our roomy and comfy cotton-tents (apartments available on request), full board and free entrance to all concerts and jam-sessions.

Camino Surf's "Surf'n'Roll" workshop connects music and sports. The combination of movement, creativity and arts enhances the development of psychosomatic consciousness. Many similarities exist between music and sports: First of all, it's heaps of fun - but it's also about motivation, training, coordination, improvisation, rhythm, and more!

While we dedicate the mornings to lessons on various musical instruments, improvisation & ensemble classes as well as rhythmic exercises, the afternoons are reserved for sports-classes. Here you can choose from surfing, windsurfing, tennis, jogging or biking. This combination allows for many synergy effects to develop which in turn will ease the acquisition of skills in both domains. We'll be glad to show you how to profit from this "magic" synergy between music and sports.

The music-workshop

Christoph Mallinger, initiator and head-lecturer of the workshop, former Austrian windsurf champion and currently music-professor in Barcelona (jazz violin & guitar), teams up with his colleagues Christian Kronreif (saxophone, clarinet & flute, "Outstanding Soloist" awardee in Toronto) and Andreas Tentschert (piano, keyboards & percussion) in order to provide you with a variety of attractive music courses:

Instrumental Lessons (for violin, guitar, saxophone, clarinet, piano, keyboard, organ or bass): Based on the individual skill level of each participant, we will look into the basic technical principles of your instrument, demonstrate sound varieties and different playing techniques, and practise together.

Rhythm- and Percussion Workshop: In these sessions you'll find out how important rhythm and pulse are for all styles of music as well as all types of sports. With a number of different exercises and games, we'll boost your rhythmic feeling which in turn eases many musical as well as sportive challenges. We help you to find your "own pulse"!

Improvisation- and Ensemble Classes: In small groups we'll work out the fundamentals for improvisation in various styles of music such as Jazz, Funk, Folk, Blues and Rock'n'Roll, putting the focus on motives, rhythms, scales & harmonies and "ear-training".

Jam Sessions: In the evenings, we'll organize small concerts or relaxed jam sessions, where the different ensembles can present their rehearsed pieces of music, or just sit together, improvise and jam!

The sports-workshop

In the afternoons, you will indulge yourself in one of the following sportive activities.

Surfing: Either you are a beginner or you want to learn some advanced tricks - our highly motivated and certified surfing-instructors will take you to the best spots around and help you achieve your goals with a lot of practical training, useful tips, video-analysis and some basic surf-theory.

Windsurfing: Tack or jibe, upwind or downwind? We'll provide you with both: the most important theoretical basics as well as loads of practical tips where you need it the most: in the water. Is it the Spock or the Speed-Loop you want to learn, or is it your first time on a Windsurf-Board? No worries, we have all answers...

Tennis: In our tennis classes you will learn all about basic techniques such as forehand- and backhand-play, how to serve, playing volleys, and more. During small matches and tournaments you can prove your newly acquired skills. Advanced players will benefit from extending and refining their techniques, thoughts on versatile playing, and briefing on tactical and mental strategies.

Jogging & Biking: In Galicia's wonderful countryside we'll show you an easy way to a better basic endurance and fitness. This will improve your sportive, mental, and musical abilities, and reflect in many other aspects of your life & overall health. For the often unevenly burdened body of a musician, this is an important compensation.
