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 Klitmoller – 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. [more]

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 Klitmoller 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: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. The entry fee is expected to be 30 Euros.
