 This looks really good. The camp looks very well put together and professional. COC just looks like a gong show in comparison, but I guess thats what you get when your target demographic is youth and your coaches are nutty slopestyle riders (no hate, its just you gotta be a little insane to be doing what they are doing, and i'm stoked on it). Plus your getting a full season pass here and its still a bit cheaper than coc!

 Agreed Bullcrew. I took one of Zep's courses last year, and as an experienced rider, I was pretty staggered by how much I learnt about stuff I thought I already had a good handle on - I've been riding and racing for about 10 years so to be honest this came as a bit of a surprise to me. The professionalism and polish of their program impressed me a lot, and the quality of instruction was excellent and very insightful - the instructor picked up on a LOT of little things that myself and the others were doing (or not doing) that helped a surprising amount.

 Luthien... WAIT! We are actually just scheduling our 2 and 3 day "Mini-Camps" for this summer, so look out on our website for the details and dates soon. They will be just coaching and won't include all the extra stuff these multi-week camps include, so we'll be making them as affordable as possible.

 There are clinics in NZ which are supposedly pretty good. E.g. www.mtbskillsclinics.co.nz. Think they operate in Wgtn & Rotorua

 There are also clinics in Australia (Canberra). Bike Techniques - same set up and style as Zep.

 100% agree.
I am really disappointed that they don't have 2 day camps. I had priv session with Paul and I loved it. I don't consider Dirt Series camp because I went once and didn't like it at all. Looks like I am going to go to Schley Camps this year.
